HEALTH BENEFITS OF EATING LEAN RED MEAT
CARNEVORE’ MEAT NOT ONLY TASTE’S GOOD – IT’S GOOD FOR YOU !
Lean, red meats are a particularly good source of iron, zinc and vitamin B12 and are easily absorbed. The Australian Guide to Healthy Eating states that “ The iron and zinc found in animal foods is more easily absorbed by the body than in plant foods such as nuts, seeds and legumes.”
A healthy diet improves our quality of life, wellbeing and protects against chronic diseases.
Work at the CSIRO has also shown that lean red meat (which has had the outer fat removed) is effective in lowering cholesterol. Adding lean red meat to your diet one or two times a week can help you consume the amount of iron your body needs for your red blood cells to transport enough oxygen to all parts of your body.
Iron deficiencies can contribute to learning problems, low energy and behavioral issues. Lean red meat provides a natural source of many B group vitamins. B-12 for a healthy nervous system and B-6 for a strong immune system.
