Why Grass Fed and NO FEEDLOTS for your protein!

Grass-Fed – Why now more than ever for the immune system.

There has been much progress among protein powders that I have witnessed over the past 27-years, and all for the good. 

After all, the word Protein translates in Greek to – Prime or First Importance.  

Therefore, it is important to make protein as good as possible. 

However, the biggest movement I am seeing in the health and fitness industry now is a progressive movement towards Grass Fed Protein

There are a few reasons why:

  • Grass-Fed protein has higher amino acid protein absorption
  • Grass-Fed protein does not contain antibiotics
  • Grass-Fed protein is better for the environment

It is difficult to argue against Grass-Fed. 

In fact, Grass Fed is how cows are supposed to be fed. 

For tens of thousands of years, cows have consumed a Grass-Fed diet. 

This is both the more humane and more nutritious way to feed cattle.

Lewter Feed Yard in Lubbock Texas is the first large feedlot on the Great Plains

Beginning in 1955 at the Lewter Feed Yard in Lubbock Texas, large Feedlots began and cows were put on a regime and a schedule to gain the most amount of weight in the shortest amount of time.

In doing so, cows were fed a diet that consisted of milo (millet grain) , some silage (grass), mineral salt, calcium, phosphorus and the new growth hormone DES, diethylstilbestrol. 

Growth Hormone DES would later be banned as a cancer-causing agent.

The problem soon became that grain fed cows in feedlots developed gastrointestinal problems, GERD, and acid reflux. 

In fact, many of the same problems that humans develop when eating grains. 

Therefore antibiotics such as penicillin are needed to give the cows to keep them alive and able to continue to feed to gain weight.

In fact, this is eerily similar to when humans seek help from their doctors for the same types of issues. 

Most of it can be traced back to the high inflammatory process of grains.

The reason why this is important is that whey protein is the highest absorbable and digestible form of first importance protein. 

In fact, here is a list of proteins and their relative digestibility and absorbability in descending order:

  1. Whey Protein – Whey is the most bioavailable source of protein. 
  2. Egg Whites – If you’re lactose intolerant and whey protein disagrees with you, egg whites are a great alternative.
  3. Fish – Oily fish are often higher in unsaturated fat and rich in omega fatty acids which are hugely beneficial for cardiovascular health.
  4. Red Meat – Although red meat is slightly lower in terms of bioavailability, it is rich in other areas. For example, red meat is high in iron, zinc and vitamin B12 and they often contain a good amount of healthy fats.
  5. Poultry – Chicken is next on the list on the protein bioavailability scale. Chicken delivers a high amount of protein with very little carbs or additional fats.

Whey protein sourced from grass-fed cows is also higher in immune factors:

  • Immunoglobulins
  • Lactoferrin 
  • Serum Albumin

Than whey protein sourced from non-grass fed cows.

This is important because it is needed for immune system strength and support.   

In fact, it has many proposed biological functions, including:

  • Antibacterial 
  • Anti-inflammatory activities
  • Defense against gastrointestinal infections
