Health Benefits

Beef That’s Big on Benefits.

We Nourish Them. They Nourish You.

Our abundant pastures are essentially an all-you-can-graze salad bar for our cattle. Not only is it an environment that promotes healthy herds, but it’s what the cattle crave—100% grazing, 0% grain. Exactly how nature intended.

It’s a holistic approach with health at the core of every step. Healthy for the land. Healthy for the cattle. Healthy for you. Think: Old-fashioned methods that earlier generations abided by, with innovative touches that benefit the cattle and that you only get from SunFed Ranch.

But what really makes this beef so darn good for you? For starters, it’s packed with essential nutrients for your brain, heart and muscles. It’s loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, beta-carotene and vitamins A and E. Not to mention, a healthy helping of vitamin B12—which is a critical nutrient not readily available from plant protein sources. We may have a lot of acres and heritage backing us up, but we’ve never strayed from that small-farm approach. It’s that hands-on attention to detail that you can trust from start to finish. It’s our standard. And we stand by it.

100% Lean. 100% Green. 0% Machines. 

Low in fat. Loaded with luscious flavor. That’s the traditional grass fed and grass finished beef at work.

Studies show that a sirloin steak from a grass fed steer has about one-half to one-third the amount of fat as a similar cut from a grain fed steer. Because grass fed meat is leaner, it’s also lower in calories and higher in protein. Talk about guilt-free grilling…

More Omega-3’s? Yes, Please.

If you’ve ever taken Omega-3 supplements, you know there’s something a little…fishy about the flavor. These essential healthy fats can’t be produced by the human body, which is why an estimated 40% of Americans aren’t getting enough of them.

But there’s good news on your plate: our grass fed beef gives your body up to 6X more essential Omega-3 fatty acids than grain feed options.

Curious what Omega-3s can really do for you? The list is pretty long, but here’s a start:

  • Supports a healthy heart
  • Supports a healthy brain
  • Prevents hardening of arteries
  • Supports healthy teeth
  • Decreases inflammation
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Possibly reduces the decline of cognitive function and progression to dementia
  • Possibly reduces the risk of some cancers

So, grass fed steak for dinner tonight? Good for you!

CLA’s for Days.

Thought we were done with the healthy fats? Not quite. Grass fed beef is the best—yes, the best—known source of Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLAs). It’s a good fat that does a lot of good for your health. Found almost exclusively in ruminant animals like cattle (read: multiple stomachs.), it helps burn fat, build muscle, reduce inflammation, boost immune systems and strengthen bones. Oh, and did we mention it helps lower the risk of certain cancers and diabetes? Because there’s strong evidence to support that, too.

And it just so happens grass fed beef and milk earns the title of the richest source of CLAs, with up to 3X as much as grain-fed beef. So, if you haven’t made the switch to SunFed yet, now’s the time.

Lean, Clean Protein.

Taking care of yourself never tasted so good. Grass fed beef is a protein powerhouse that helps boost your energy levels and rebuilds your muscles. SunFed Ranch grass fed beef packs a whole lot of protein and nutrients, with less fat and fewer calories. We’re talking as much protein as you’d get from 1.5 cups of beans, with ½ the calories—all in in a 3-ounce serving. You also get as much Zinc as 14 servings of white tuna, and as much Iron as 3 cups of raw spinach. Better fire up that grill, Popeye! 

You’re craving it. Your body’s craving it. SunFed is the move for dinner tonight.
