Women experienced less depression with natural red meat in their diet
The unique nutrients in grass finished beef lifts the blues, according to a recently published study quoted in this month’s Reader’s Digest. Australian researchers concluded that the higher levels of Omega-3 fatty acid in grass fed beef may have given the women in their study a more positive outlook on life. Even consuming fish, with large amounts of this good fat, does not provide the same mood lifting results as grass fed beef the study concluded.
The research at Deakin University in Victoria, evaluated the diets of 1000 women battling depression or anxiety. Those in the study who stayed with the recommended two to four ounces of grass finished beef several times a week, experienced mental health improvements. These women were twice as likely to have their depression lessen or leave entirely.
Grass finished beef cattle are never fed grains and live their entire lives eating in pastures. While grain finished beef comes from cattle that for their first 12 months are also on grass, but then shipped to feed lots to be fattened-up on corn/grain mixtures. Nutritional studies have shown the grass fed beef products are much higher in Omega-3 (good fat) and much lower in Omega-6 (bad fat). The native grasses also provide anti-oxidants that only show-up in the grass finished meats.
