Did you know that increasing Omega 3’s and reducing consumption of Omega 6’s is key to reducing inflammation, and therefore helping Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s Disease, Arthritis, and many other inflammatory diseases?
How can you increase your Omega 3’s and at the same time reduce your Omega 6’s consumption?
–By adding Grass-Fed Meats, because research has shown that keeping a healthy ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6’s ( which is close to 1:1) reduces or hinders inflammation within the body and that makes you healthier because inflammation is the under-lying cause of most disease.
Did you know that Grain-Fed Meats have a very unhealthy ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6’s of 1:20 – and THIS wreaks inflammation throughout your body in the form of Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Reactive Arthritis, Heart Disease, and numerous other diseases?
Grass fed animals are key to keeping this Omega 3 to Omega 6 ratio at a healthy 1:1. Native grasses are loaded with Omega-3’s and are found in abundance in grass-fed buffalo. The Nutritional benefits of a diet high in omega-3’s include; cancer prevention, lowering of cholesterol, and reducing inflammation.
WHY EAT BUFFALO?
Rarely is something that tastes so good actually good for you. Buffalo meat is the perfect way to enjoy all the advantages of beef without the guilty negatives. Buffalo meat is America’s healthy red meat — the one your taste buds can enjoy and allow your brain and body to feel good about it!
Unlike other so-called exotic meats, buffalo does not have that “gamey” taste. Rather, it has a full, rich, juicy flavor that is often characterized as sweet despite its low fat content. Many people characterize the flavor as like the best grass-fed beef they have ever tasted, but appreciate that buffalo meat is a healthier choice.
The nutritional benefits of Grass-fed Bison meat:
- Grass-fed Bison meat is naturally leaner, which means lower in calories, with only 245 calories and 4.2 grams of fat per 6 oz. serving.
- Grass-fed Bison meat is naturally 85-90% lean and is lower in calories, fat and cholesterol than skinless chicken, pork, beef or salmon
- Grass-fed Bison meat is lower in “bad” saturated fat and higher in “good fat” or omega-3 fatty acids.
- Up to sixty percent of the fatty acid content in the grasses on the great plains contain omega-3 and are found in abundance in buffalo allowed to graze on native grasses, which is 3.5 times more omega-3s then grain fed bison. The benefits from a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids include: cancer prevention, lowering cholesterol, as well as reducing inflammation.
- Grass-fed bison meat has a greater concentration of iron, as well as other essential nutrients.
- Grass-fed bison meat can contain up to four times as much vitamin E than feedlot meat. This potent antioxidant has been shown to lower the risk of heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
- Grass-fed bison meat is a highly nutrient dense food and….. it’s delicious!
- Grass-fed bison meat is naturally gluten-free and MSG-free (Whole cut meat only, such as steaks, roasts, ribs and burgers. Processed meats such as jerky, hot dogs, brats, etc. may have trace detectable amounts.)
BUFFALO VS. BEEF
Depending on the cut, buffalo is…
- 60-80% lower in fat with up to half the calories of beef
- Higher in protein, vitamin B and iron, and lower in cholesterol
- Sweeter and juicier, with a fresh, non-greasy taste
- Much more tender with a deeper red color and less marbling
- Faster to cook (due to lower fat), and should be cooked at a lower temperature
- More meat per ounce after cooking, as it doesn’t shrink as much as beef does

“Today, we know that the bison is considered a highly nutrient dense food (the proportion of protein, fat, minerals and fatty acids are high when compared to its caloric value.) When compared to other animals from a feed lot, the bison have a greater concentration of iron as well as other essential nutrients. The meat from grass-fed bison can contain up to four times as much vitamin E as feedlot cattle. This potent antioxidant has been shown to lower the risk of heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
The fat content in bison meat is usually a third of that found in cattle fattened in the feedlot. Because the meat is lower in fat also means that it is lower in calories. A 6 oz buffalo steak can have as much as 100 fewer calories than a steak from a grain fed steer. You could loose up to 10 pounds a year just by switching your main source of meat to grass fed buffalo.
Bison is also high in omega-3 fat. Up to sixty percent of the fatty acid content in the grasses on the plains contain omega-3 and are found in abundance in buffalo allowed to graze on the natural grasses. The benefits from a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids can not be overstated. These benefits include cancer prevention to lowering cholesterol as well as reducing inflammation.” – – Dr. Kevin Weiland
“We just received our first shipment of your bison meat and had a sirloin steak for dinner. I followed your marinade suggestion and cooked the steak in a Foreman grill. Not one drop of fat came off the steak as it cooked; the steak was very tasty, and nice and tender as you promised. We are VERY happy with this! We will undoubtedly eat more red meat thanks to you.” – – Betty – SD
