What are Grass Fed and Non-Grass Fed?

Let’s first find out what truly sets the two apart from one another before concluding which is ideal for you, for health reasons as well as the benefits (both pro’s and con’s)

Grass Fed means the cattle are pasture fed and free roaming
NON Grass Fed means grain fed and usually in doors/confined area

Let’s start with GRASS FED protein.

Grass Fed Protein (The benefits)

The grass-fed protein is highly beneficial for the following reasons:

  • An abundance of omega-3 fatty acids is good for decreasing blood pressure and maintaining the health of your arteries. This lowers your risk of heart attacks and other heart problems.
  • More conjugated linoleic acids enhance the body’s immunological system while also reducing fat accumulation.
  • Reduced inflammation is also one major benefit of this type of protein powder. Exercise exhausts the body, and utilizing natural grass fred protein can speed up recovery and promote the development of stronger muscles due to the antioxidants, healthy omega 3 fatty acids and purity.
  • More amounts of Vitamin E and A support healthy skin and eyes. Not only that, but it also boosts the body’s natural defenses against disease.
  • Other useful elements like Beta-Lactoglobulin, Cysteine, Lactoferrin and Lysozyme also have a lot of benefits to human health.
  • Grass fed does NOT contain GMOs, antibiotics, hormones, or other pointless artificial substances
  • Studies have shown anti-aging qualities are the biggest benefit when used over an extended period time.

In addition to the advantages of the above composition, grass-fed protein is healthier since it is produced in a more natural stress free environment. With fewer additives, chemicals, and unnatural substances, the cattle consume pasture and are much healthier and happier roaming free.

As we all know, anything natural has more advantages than anything synthetic. Right?

Non-Grass Fed Protein (Grain Fed)

On the contrary, NON-grass fed protein may have little to some health benefits. According to health experts, Grain Fed definitely have the following negative side affects:

  • According to Atli Arnarson (Phd) Healthline, Omega 6 that can raise blood pressure, resulting in heart attacks and strokes in some people with poor nutrition and health, to begin with. Additionally, it makes your body retain water and results in a puffy physique, accessive gassing and joint problems.
  • Grain fed has much fewer antioxidants, which means much fewer health advantages than protein from grass-fed cattle.
  • Grain fed often has certain chemicals that might promote inflammation and disease in the body, which you would want to avoid if fitness is your number one priority.
  • GMO’s is a serious problem found in grain fed cattle and passed on through the milk through to the powder, undetected! Gmo has been linked to illness and deadly diseases – should be avoided at all costs!
  • Artificial sweeteners are commonly found in non-grass-fed proteins, this is due to the fact many companies that use grain fed are using this source of protein to keep costs low and profits high, artificial sweetners make these nasty proteins easy to drink.
  • These cattle are usually treated with hormones & antibiotics, this is not only un ethical it’s also very harmful for the human body, as these problematic compounds pass on to the human body when consuming the protein powder (or anything grain fed for that matter) and has many underlining health risks.

More Humane Farming

 

We’re going to reveal something to you that you might not be aware of. Cows that are not pasture-fed are often confined in a restricted space and fed grains. This causes trauma and stress to the cattle which increases their stress hormone (especially if they’re preimpregananted and forced to develop milk)

Frequently, hormones and antibiotics are used to keep the cows healthy, this puts consumers at great risk. Can you imagine how those poor cows must live their entire lives crammed into a little area…

They experience stress and trauma which negatively affects the protein indirectly.

You won’t get the health advantages/benefits from grain fed protein, as you would grass fed sources of protein for these main reasons.

 


Conclusion

Grass-fed protein contains more Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and glutathione, a powerful antioxidant, but it also has more of what some call healthy fats. Specifically, it has more omega-3 fatty acids, which have been linked to everything from healthier joints to better mental health, and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which has been linked to lower levels of inflammation and body fat. Most importantly to wrap this up, it does not contain antiboiotics, hormones, gmo’s, artificial colours or flavours.
