Good Meat – “The Super Food of all Super Foods”

Good Meat – “The Super Food of all Super Foods”

There’s a lot of chat these days about super foods, packed full of health promoting vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants, but rarely do they talk about meat as a ‘super food’. The truth is though, it’s the super food of all super foods.

Not only does it have the full complement of good proteins – all 22 – it also has several other vitamins and minerals essential to the body.

Meat is a rich natural source of Vitamins B12, B3, B6, Selenium, Zinc, Iron and other minerals. In fact, Vitamin B12 is a critical nutrient that can only be found naturally in meat and is scientifically proven to be good for the brain, mental health, fatigue, tiredness and for bones, hair and skin. Awesome, right?

Vitamin B3 aids metabolism; Vitamin B6 helps reduce tiredness and fatigue; Selenium is a powerful anti-oxidant; Zinc is great for cognitive function – your brain cogs!

If you were wondering, the stats for red meat are even more impressive, but remember good red meat is lean red meat and we need to moderate our consumption of fatty red meats as much as possible.

Here are a few easily digestible facts in reference to 100g of red meat:

  • Vitamin B3 : 25% of your recommended daily allowance (RDA)
  • Vitamin B12 : 37% of your RDA
  • Vitamin B6 : 18% of your RDA
  • Iron : 12% of your RDA (this is high quality heme-iron, which is absorbed much better by your body than iron from plant based iron)
  • Zinc : 32% of your RDA
  • Selenium : 24% of your RDA
  • Creatine (only found in meat) manages the energy reserves in the brain and muscles
  • Carnosite (only found in meat) – a powerful anti – oxidant aiding inflammation and purifying the body of free radicals

So it is pretty unquestionable that meat is a powerful nutritional agent, but make sure when you choose your meat it is the good stuff – meat that’s lean, healthy, naturally produced, free from nitrates and nasties.
