Dexter "SUPERBEEF", is like no other beef in the world. Tastier, more tender, but most importantly, healthier. We've provided a few sources of information about a few of the main health advantages to our meat. Enjoy!
SUPERBEEF has between 34 to 105 times more testosterone than commercial cattle, which benefits both men and women.
Testosterone is Proving to Be A Man's most Important Whole Body Anti-Aging
Youth Restorer. It Affects Almost Every
Part Of Your Health and Not Just Your Sex
Life Like We Used to Believe.
Testosterone helps women maintain bone density, muscle mass, and a healthy energy level. Women with low testosterone (low T) may experience decreased libido, persistent fatigue, and a decreased sense of well-being.
Men with diabetes are particularly prone to low T. According to the American Diabetes Association, a man with type 2 diabetes is twice as likely to suffer from low T as a man without diabetes (ADA, 2013).
A book titled Testosterone For Life was published in 2008 by a Harvard Medical School professor who specializes in urology and male sexual health. The book discusses the many published studies showing that men with higher testosterone levels live longer and have reduced risk of heart attacks!
Eugene Shippen, M.D., co-author of The Testosterone Syndrome, states that low testosterone correlates with heart disease more reliably than does high cholesterol! Recent studies show that testosterone:
- Strengthens the heart
- Lowers LDL and total cholesterol
- Improves every cardiac risk factor
- Promotes coronary artery dilation
- Promotes healthy blood pressure
- Promotes weight loss in stomach area
In fact, a recent study showed blood flow to the heart increased 68% for people who were receiving testosterone therapy. Clearly, it is a powerful heart protector and healer every mature man should take advantage of!
"I know you've heard all of the buzz over the last few years about the health benefits of wild salmon and other fish that have higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids. However, did you know that there's a "land meat" that has similar omega-3/omega-6 ratios as wild salmon? In fact, this "land meat" not only contains as much, or even higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids, but without the possible negatives such as heavy metals (mercury, etc) and PCBs that can be found in fish frequently. I've talked about this type of meat before and how its one of the healthiest forms of meat you can possibly get... its grass-fed beef"

How Too Much Omega-6 and Not Enough Omega-3 Is Making Us Sick
"At the onset of the Industrial revolution (about 140 years ago), there was a marked shift in the ratio of n-6 fatty acids in the diet. Consumption of n-6 fats INCREASED at the expense of n-3 fats. This change was due to both the advent of the modern vegetable oil industry and the increased use of cereal grains as feed for domestic livestock (which in turn altered the fatty acid profile of meat that humans consumed). Vegetable oil consumption rose dramatically between the beginning and end of the 20th century, and this had an entirely predictable effect on the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fats in the American diet. Between 1935 and 1939, the ratio of n-6 to n-3 fatty acids was reported to be 8.4:1. From 1935 to 1985, this ratio increased to 10.3:1 (a 23% increase). Other calculations put the ratio as high as 12.4:1 in 1985. Today, estimates of the ratio range from an average of 10:1 to 20:1, with a ratio as high as 25:1 in some individuals. So what are the consequences to human health of an 1-6:n-3 ratio that is up to 25 times higher than it should be? The short answer is that elevated n-6 intakes are associated with an INCREASE IN ALL INFLAMMATORY DISEASES - which is to to say all diseases."
Grass-fed beef is better than grain-fed beef in ten different ways, according to the most comprehensive analysis to date. The 2009 study was a joint effort between the USDA and researchers at Clemson University in South Caroline. Compared with grain-fed beef, grass-fed beef was:
- Lower in total fat
- Higher in beta-carotene
- Higher in vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol)
- Higher in the B-vitamins thiamin and riboflavin
- Higher in the minerals calcium, magnesium, and potassuim
- Higher in total omega-3s
- Healthier ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids (1.65 vs 4.84)
- Higher in CLA (cis-9 trans-11), a potential cancer fighter
- Higher in vaccenic acid (which can be transformed into CLA)
- Lower in the saturated fats linked with heart disease

Grass Fed Beef versus Grain Fed Beef
"Beta-carotene, the precursor to vitamin A, is 7 times higher in grass fed beef compared to grain fed beef according to three scientific studies. Vitamin A plays a crucial role in vision, reproduction, bone growth, and cell function. It is important for healthy skin, as well as healthy linings of the respiratory, urinary and digestive tracts. Vitamin E (alpha-totpherol) concentrations are 3 times higher in grass fed beef compared to grain fed beef according to six different studies. Antioxidants such as vitamin E are important for protecting cells against the damaging effects of free radicals. Free radical damage is believed to be associated with a variety of aging issues and chronic diseases from cancer to cardiovascular disease. The antioxidant enzymes GT (glutathione), SOD (super-oxide dismutase), and CAT (catalase) are all increased in grass fed beef, as well. Antioxidant enzymes, like antioxidant vitamins quench free radicals, and they do so in a way that is particularly useful for preventing DNA damage, and protecting cell function. Grass fed beef contains significantly larger amounts of TVA (trans vaccenic acid) than grain fed beef, which is required for the body to make CLA (conjugated linoleic acid). CLA is another valuable consideration for grass fed beef due to its ability to reduce the developemnt of cancer, and the onset of diabetes. CLA has also been shown to reduce the deposition of fat in humans."

There are many kinds of fats in the body. Some of the most crutial fats are in the list of compounds that make up the cell walls or all of the body's cells. After isolating these fats scientific experiments determined that if the ratio of omega 6 fats to omega 3 fats exceeds 4:1, people have more health problems. This is especially meaningful since grain-fed beef can have ratios that exceed 20:1 whereby grass-fed beef is down around 3:1.
