Grass-Fed Butter is Better

Grass-Fed Butter is Better

How many of you know the difference between grass-fed butter and conventional butter? We’ve all heard the term grass-fed, but there’s more to it than simply being the better option. It’s important for you to know that what you’re consuming is benefiting your bodies so you can be healthy.

Grass is the natural diet of cows. For a healthier cow and you, it’s important that cows are eating grass. Cows who ate more grass produced milk with more healthy fats. A widely believed misconception is that fats are the enemy and we should strive to not consume any. This isn’t true as your body needs to consume fats in order to sustain you.

Why Grass-Fed is Better

Grass-Fed butter has high amounts of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which has been known to be beneficial in weight loss. It also has positive effects on cardiovascular disease, cancer, chronic inflammation, and diminished immune response. Grass-fed butter has vitamins A, D, E, and K. Vitamin A is important for brain development as well as strengthening your immune system. For calcium absorption, vitamin D will provide that and promote bone growth. Vitamin E is an antioxidant, that is required in our diets. It works to slow down the processes that lead to damaged cells. Vitamin K helps prevent blood clots and excessive bleeding.

Now, look at how factory-fed cows are treated to produce conventional butter. You’ll never want to consume anything from a factory-fed cow. Overcrowded feeding operations are where the cows are sent at just a year old. They have no room to move around. Cows are killed and put into the feed when they can’t walk.

It’s repulsive and heartbreaking to think about any animal having to go through that way of life. Buying conventional butter is supporting this abuse. We can do our part to put an end to this mistreatment by buying only grass-fed butter.

How Their Diets Effects You

Unfortunately, their diets aren’t any better. Factory-fed cows eat a mixture of grains, antibiotics, and ground-up cows. We are what we eat, and if cows are being fed that horrendous mixture, then we consume products from them, we’re also consuming that mixture. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be consuming that. 

Another factor to consider is that since their diets are horrible, they develop diseases. Then fed even more drugs or killed and fed to the other cows. We could get sick by consuming those products. Is that a risk you want to take for yourself and your family? Especially since the better option is right in front of you?
