Nutrition + heatlh benefits...

There has always been a spotlight on the role that steak plays within the human diet, so you wouldn't be the only one wondering! So how healthy is steak and is it good for us? Yes, it is okay to eat steak! And if you're going to choose, it's best to eat any beef and steak that have come from a hygienic back ground and are most certainly grass fed due to how leanness and cleanliness of the beef itself.

What are the benefits of steak and red meat?

1. GIMME' THAT PROTEIN 

Protein is essential for maintenance for our hair, nails, skin, bones, muscle mass and muscle tissue. Eating steak is an easy way to up your dietary protein and keep an easy count of your calories! We will show more of that complicated stuff later... 

2.  IRON, IRON, IRON! It's full of it.

Not only is it iron-rich, but iron in red meat is also more easily absorbed by the body. One serving of beef contains 15% of our recommended daily iron intake, with the iron recommended daily intake sitting being between 13.7–15.1 mg/day. It is known to be extremely helpful for people with low iron levels.

3. SMILE!

Believe it or not, steak is great for maintaining oral health. Medical organisations like the American Dental Association promote red meat consumption because red meat is rich in phosphorus, and phosphorus plays a big role in protecting bone and tooth enamel.

4. MICRONUTRIENTS!

Steak is incredibly rich in other nutrients that our bodies need to function, like Creatine and Carnosine which help our muscles and brains to function. Carnosine is a dipeptide molecule, made up of the amino acids, beta-alanine and histidine. In english - It's the good stuff. Who doesn't want to be muscly and smart?
