Why Beef is Good for You.

Most people will know that beef is categorized as a red meat, which means it has a high iron content, higher than any fish or chicken. But what else makes beef nutritious? Well, lean beef is rich in various vitamins and minerals. According to healthline, moderate beef intake can be recommended as part of a healthy diet. 

When cooked, lean beef is made up of 26-27% protein and the quality of animal protein is usually high. In fact, the amino acid profile of the protein found in beef is almost identical to that of our own muscles. For this reason, eating beef is especially beneficial for recovering athletes or those who have had surgery. Furthermore, when combined with strength training, it also helps to build and maintain muscle mass. 

Beef is a great option to consider if trying to increase mineral intake. For example, a 6oz portion of beef provides more than half of the day’s recommended amount of selenium and zinc. The body needs zinc to heal damaged tissue and support a healthy immune system. Webmd.com says that it is also important for children and adolescents to consume enough zinc in order to glow and thrive. It also contains considerable amounts of calcium, potassium, magnesium and iron. 

You may have heard of iron deficiency anemia, according to the World Health Organization, 1.62 billion people suffer from this deficiency. One of the best benefits of beef is that it contains a substantial amount of heme iron (the kind our body finds easiest to absorb). Beef liver is probably the best source of this iron.

Creatine is another mentionable health benefit of beef. It is abundant in meat and beef and is a great energy source for muscles. It is often taken as a supplement by bodybuilders for muscle growth or maintenance. Another compound found in beef is Taurine, it is an antioxidant amino acid and also a common ingredient in energy drinks. It is important for heart and muscle function. 

So what does all this information tell us? Overall, beef that is unprocessed and high quality is a healthy option when eaten as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle. It’s also super tasty and versatile!
