The BOLD (Beef in an Optimal Lean Diet) study found participants lowered LDL “bad” cholesterol 10%, when they followed a heart-healthy diet and consumed four ounces of lean beef every day.
More than half the fatty acids in beef are the same heart-healthy type found in olive oil (monounsaturated).
One-third of beef’s saturated fatty acid is stearic acid, a saturated fat that has a neutral effect on cholesterol.
Many of the B vitamins found in beef are essential for a healthy heart.
One 3-ounce serving of lean beef has about 150 calories and is naturally rich in 10 essential nutrients, including protein, iron, zinc and B-vitamins.
