When we talk about sheep meat, we need to consider that there are several types. A sheep in its first year is known as Lamb.
A sheep in its second year is known as hogget, and older sheep’s meat is called mutton.
Lamb is the most tender and delicious of all three, and of course the most expensive due to its demand.
However, considering that it has a high-quality protein and a LOT of vitamins and minerals, lamb is an excellent element for a healthy diet.
But how good is it for our health?
Lamb is mainly composed of high-quality protein, contributing to the all nine amino acids our body needs for growth and maintenance.
But Lamb beef does not only contain protein, it is also a rich source of many vitamins and minerals, such as Vitamin B12, Vitamin B3, Selenium, Iron, Phosphorus and Zinc.
By cause of all these benefits, Lamb beef has been a major ally to bodybuilders, recovering athletes, and people post-surgery. It contains high levels of carnosine, which has been associated with fatigue decrease and exercise performance.
Not only that, but thanks to its iron abundance, it is an amazing help to prevent and fight anemia, which is caused by low levels of red blood cells.
Experts and medical staff say that we are what we eat, hence we encourage eating healthy and grass-fed meat, like ours.
