A recent human trial demonstrated that eating wild meat (kangaroo) caused lower levels of post-meal inflammation than eating conventionally-raised beef.
In other words, how the animal was raised may have affected the level of inflammation in the body after eating it.
When people ate wild meat they had lower levels of inflammation and when they ate meat raised in confinement, they had higher levels of inflammation.
And while we don’t yet know exactly why this happened, Dr. Fred Provenza, acclaimed author, professor and researcher believes it may have a lot to do with underrated, yet powerful nutrients called secondary compounds.
In fact, though you don’t hear much about them, secondary compounds have been shown to…
Most importantly, the levels of secondary compounds change dramatically in meat depending upon what the animal ate and how it was raised.
Tune in to this week’s fascinating podcast with Dr. Provenza to learn about the little-known, yet important, differences in grass-fed and conventionally raised meats and what it means for your health. Here are some of my favorite takeaways…
