Best Burger Around – Why You’ll Love Grass Fed Beef
October 17th, 2017 by Liberty Burger
Fights CancerWhen biting into a delicious grass-fed burger, fighting cancer is probably the last thing on your mind. However, studies have shown that the delicious beef patty could potentially protect you from cancer! Grass-fed beef has been found to contain a significantly larger amount of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) than grain-fed. CLA is a must have in your diet and is known to promote health and fight disease.
Animal studies show that CLA can prevent and treat cancer, obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases. Also, one study observed women and their CLA levels to determine their risk of breast cancer. Those with the most CLA in their diets had a lower risk for breast cancer than those with the least CLA. Cancer-fighting beef? Grass-fed really is the best burger around!
Improves Blood SugarThe word ‘fat’ doesn’t have the greatest reputation. The word typically conjures an image of junk food and bad health. This is because the term has become synonymous with saturated fat. In reality, our bodies require healthy fats as much as other macronutrients like carbohydrates and protein. Healthy fats play a big part in regulating your blood sugar. Blood sugar regulation is essential to those with an insulin sensitivity. Also, a healthy blood sugar level can ward off diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and metabolic syndrome. While your concept of the best burger is likely based on taste, blood sugar regulation is surely not a downside.
More Likely to be Antibiotic-FreeDid you know that roughly 80% of antibiotics in the United stated are used on livestock? Feeding cows grain increases the acidity of their intestinal tracts, which encourages the growth of bacteria like E. coli. This is why farmers use antibiotics on grain-fed cows. Grass-fed cows on the other hand, typically aren’t given antibiotics. When you are looking for the best burger around, you should probably avoid beef that has potentially harmful antibiotics in it.
The Safer Beef Option
Consumer Reports conducted an extensive study comparing grass and conventional meat. Their results found that “beef from conventionally raised cows was more likely to have bacteria overall, as well as bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics.” Grass-fed beef also had a lower likelihood of containing MRSA (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus) as well as superbugs which are bacteria resistant to 3 or more classes of antibiotics. This reason alone disqualifies conventional beef from making the best burger around.
Environmental BenefitsOn top of all these benefits, grass-fed beef is also better for the environment! Many people avoid eating beef altogether because of environmental concerns. However, it has been found that grass-fed beef actually benefits the environment. Grass-fed beef production decreases greenhouse gas emissions and increases biodiversity in the pasture. It also improves the quality of runoff water. Grass-fed beef can actually reduce your carbon footprint!
