Are you a meat lover? We may be a bit biased, but we are too. The good news – red meat does have some great health benefits we’d love to share with you. Here are some key points we’ll go over today:

  • Contains all the Essential Amino Acids: Essential amino acids are amino acids the body needs to function and perform important tasks that it cannot produce on its own. These have to be provided to the body from food sources. Red meat contains a complete profile of every essential amino acid needed by the body. These amino acids are vital for tissue repair, nutrient absorption, and can even support the prevention of muscle loss, recovery after athletic activity, and improve your mood.
  • Less Saturated Fat, More Good Fat: Too much saturated fat can cause a buildup in the arteries, leading to high cholesterol and an increased risk of heart disease and stroke. Don’t worry, we’ve got good news. Grass-fed beef, like what you can find at Dark Hammock Legacy Ranch, is lower in saturated fat and higher in Omega-3 fatty acids (a good kind of fat) than its conventional beef counterpart. 
  • Processed Meats vs. Fresh Beef: Highly-processed and preserved meats have been linked to health issues, likely due to excessive sodium and the preservation process. That’s why we always recommend you buy it fresh, straight from the source. Buying from a local producer like Dark Hammock ensures your beef is going right from the processor to your freezer, preserving its health contents to the fullest.

At Dark Hammock Legacy Ranch, we’re happy to provide you with highly-nutritious grass-fed beef that’s sure to please your stomach and your taste buds. Visit our website to learn more about what we do and to place your order with us.
