Why is Mountain Lane Farm Beef Better?
More Vitamin A is Better
Beta-Carotene is converted to Vitamin A (retinol) by the human body, and Mountain Lane Farm Beef contains 10X the Beta-Carotene of grain-fed beef. Vitamin A is essential for vision, bone growth, cell division and differentiation. In addition, Vitamin A creates a barrier to bacterial and viral infection and supports the production and function of white blood cells.
More Vitamin E is Better
Mountain Lane Farm Beef typically has 3X the amount of Vitamin E found in conventional grain-fed beef. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that may prevent or delay coronary heart disease, block the formation of carcinogens formed in the stomach, and protect against cancer development. Vitamin E may also improve eye lens clarity and reduce or prevent the development of cataracts.
There needs to be more balance between Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids
The ratio of Omega-3 fatty acids to Omega-6 fatty acids in our diet plays an important role in the prevention and treatment of coronary heart disease, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, cancer and arthritis and other inflammatory diseases. The American Medical Association recommends a ration of roughly four parts Omega-6 to one part Omega-3. However, the cereal grains typically fed to cattle have very low levels of Omega-3 and much higher levels of Omega-6, while Mountain Lane Farm cattle have increased Omega-3 levels of up to 60% and produces a much more favorable Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratio.
CLA is Better
Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) has demonstrated significant health benefits in the human body, including the reduction of carcinogenesis, atherosclerosis, and the onset of diabetes. Mountain Lane Farm Beef contains 2 to 3 times more CLA than beef from grain-fed cattle.
More Dietary Protein is Better
Mountain Lane Farm Beef is leaner and higher in protein than grain-fed beef. In fact, our beef averages 1.5 times more protein than typical USDA Choice+ grain-fed beef. Research has shown that eating Mountain Lane Farm beef can help lower total, LDL and VLDL cholesterol, and triglycerides, while increasing beneficial HDL cholesterol. It can also help lower blood pressure, aid in weight loss and improve insulin sensitivity and glycemic control.
