Switching to a healthier, more nutritious meat has health benefits for anyone, but there are certain groups that will find the rewards of organic meat especially abundant.
If you’ve ever wondered how your kids manage to wear through so many pairs of shoes in such small amounts of time, then think about how that growth has to be facilitated by a healthy diet.
Young bodies require a lot of fuel to grow at the rate they do, which is why organic beef and lamb, as well as other organic products, are so beneficial to their development.
Countless studies have shown that organic foods have higher levels of all those essentials for growth such as calcium, magnesium, iron and chromium. On average, this is at a rate of 25 per cent more than chemically grown foods.
Pregnant women and new mums
All this extra nutrition is great for expectant mums looking to improve their diets.
One study found that mothers who consumed mostly organic milk and meat products had 50 per cent high levels of rumenic acid in their breast milk. This acid is said to have the potential for anticarcinogenic, anti-diabetic and immune-modulating effects.
The extra levels come from the farmers who rely on pasture and forage grasses rather than grains and supplements.
Those recovering from sickness
A big part of repairing our bodies after injury or sickness is eating the right food, and with organic meat’s high levels of protein, vitamins and minerals, every meal that is organic has more of the good stuff than an ordinary plate.
Including organic meals in your diet can help on a day-to-day basis with little things like boosting the immune system. A nutritious diet will help keep the body strong and ready to fight off winter colds.
