Dairy That Does a Body Good

The magic of grass-fed dairy isn’t just about better treatment for animals and soil health– it’s about better nutrition for our own bodies, too. Because our cows are feeding on grass from healthy soil, nutrients and minerals naturally pass from earth to animal to milk. This makes for milk that ounce-for-ounce is more nutrient-dense than milks from grain-fed cows and plants like almond, oat, and soy, because of higher levels of beneficial nutrients, antioxidants, and vitamins. Grass-fed dairy also usually has a more balanced omega-3 to omega-6 ratio, which is important in reducing chronic diseases, inflammation, and supporting overall health. 



The Omega Difference

One of the most significant benefits of grass-fed dairy is higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids, particularly alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). ALA is a powerful compound known for its anti-inflammatory properties, positive impact on brain and heart health, and supporting skin and eye health.


Grass fed milk also has an amazing balance of omega-6 fatty acids, like conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which in the right amounts can help with everything from metabolism, body composition, heart health, immune support, and even potentially fighting cancer. 


Vital Vitamins

Grass-fed dairy is also rich in antioxidants like vitamins E and beta-carotene, as well as vitamins A and K2, which play an important role in blood clotting, healthy vision, and bone density. And because of the natural path that minerals transfer–  from earth, to grass, to cow, to milk– grass-fed dairy inherently has higher levels of calcium and magnesium compared to conventional dairy.  


So there you have it. This is just the tip of the iceberg of how much there is to know about the nutrition of grass-fed dairy. And its ability to energize, support, and nourish people of all ages– from growing kids to supporting cognition in the elderly is part of the reason why we’re so passionate about what we do. It’s better for the earth. It’s better for our bodies. And man, does it taste good.
