Grass Fed v Grain Fed Beef - Which is Better For You?

By: In Touch Chiropractic
KINGAROY, Australia - June 6, 2024 - PRLog -- Were you aware that making a decision on eating meat that has been finished on grass or grain, impacts your health and the aches and pains you may get?

Meat, and the fatty acids in the meat and the other vitamins in the meat are quite different depending on the methods of growing and producing the meat, and that can increase or decrease the amount of inflammation we experience.

Meat that is finished on grain has less Vitamin E, 10 times less, and less vitamin A.  Both grass and grain fed have good levels of CLA - conjugated linoleic acid - animals get through the grass and it gets into the fats of the meat.

The fats in the meat from grain fed beef are completely different, the last 30-60 days of being fed grain, dramatically changes the omega 3 and omega 6 content of the meat.

The Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio in grain fed beef is much higher at 16:1, than grass fed at 1.4:1. Lower amounts of Omega 6 being the healthier option. It is this ratio that is important in inflammatory pathways, cellular stability and mitochondrial function (our cellular energy producer)

The fact that fish oils are so high in Omega 3 is what makes it an effective anti-inflammatory. Grass fed beef is also much higher in antioxidants and healthy stearic acid.  It can be more expensive to buy grass fed, not finished on grain.
