The Benefits of an Omega-3 Rich Diet
Omega-3s are nutrients that help build and maintain a healthy body. Your body doesn’t make this nutrient, so it’s important that you include it in your diet. Foods rich in Omega-3s can help improve your health in several ways. Eating omega-3s could increase good cholesterol and lower blood pressure, reducing your risk of heart disease and stroke. Not only is Omega-3 consumption important for adults, it’s also important for visual and neurological development in infants.
Meat from our cows have significantly higher levels of Omega-3s, and that’s thanks to our superior nutritional feed. Designer Beef cows are fed a custom meal plan that’s formulated by a nutritionist—a practice that sets us apart from other beef ranchers.
The phrase “You are what you eat” is true even for our cows. Cows that eat better food have healthier and tastier meat. That’s why we take the care and time to put together feed that consists of nutritional grains and hay that add Omega-3s to a cow’s diet. Here are a few of those ingredients:
- Bermuda hay- packed with fiber to help a cow ingest food and nutrients in their diet, providing cows with nutritious Omega-3s.
- Alfalfa hay- 23% protein and an excellent source of fiber, vitamin K and C, and other minerals.
- Cottonseed and flaxseed- A unique nutrient feed ingredient that is full of protein, available fat, and effective fiber. This ingredient helps support muscle growth, animal development, digestive health, and inflammation. But most importantly, these supplements help convert the marbling (intramuscular fat) into healthy Omega-3, the same way olive oil or avocados do. This is important for both the cows' health and human health through consumption.
- Other Healthy Grains- Designer Beef uses a proprietary mixture of healthy grains designed by our nutritionist to provide energy and gut health to promote weight gain and growth. They create the best marbling and fat content for consistent taste and a higher yield of meat.
- Supplements- plays a vital role in meat nutrients.
