U.S. Wellness News Alert

Butter is Back!
New Sister Website - Cell-Wellness

January 30, 2011
Monticello, Missouri


Dear John,
Football Fever!
Football fever is here!  It is that time of year again, and we are looking forward to Super Bowl XLV next Sunday, February 6.  In honor of this special holiday, we have plenty of tasty Super Bowl recipes that will be easy to make and take to any super bowl party.  Our Super Bowl recipe page has several recipes featuring everything from brisket to wings!  Or visit our recipe section below for a Beefy Taco Dip.

Here at US Wellness we routinely receive phone calls from customers on a gluten-free diet, or from concerned parents of Autistic children looking for gluten-free products.  What exactly is a gluten-free diet?  This slideshow from WebMD gives lots of good information.  Basically it is a diet free of grains, focusing on whole, unprocessed foods.  US Wellness is happy to offer an endless selection of gluten free meats and snacks (even ice cream!) to customers with celiac disease, IBS, autism, or gluten allergies. 

Where's the beef?  This week fast food giant Taco Bell was hit with a lawsuit claiming their meat filling was below USDA standards.  Apparently, meat filling must be at least 40% meat - only 40%!  What makes up the other 60% of the "meat"?  Usually extenders, such as wheat, starches and oat flour; and binders such as soy lecithin.  This Today Show video gives a more in-depth look at what you are actually getting in your fast food burritos.  Don't risk your health with mystery meat - our ground beef is 100% grass-fed, antibiotic and hormone-free, with no added fillers or binders.  

Butter is back!  Due to a nationwide shortage of grass-fed cream necessary to make grass-fed butter, we ran short on our famous grass-fed butter this month.  While this is frustrating, it is also a good problem because it means more people are realizing the amazing benefits of grass-fed dairy!   We have both Salted and Unsalted varieties of Kerrygold Butter in stock now.  It is 100% grass-fed made from summer milk when cattle are enjoying lush grasses, and packaged in a convenient 8 oz package. This butter has a creamy texture and a rich butter flavor you will love as much as we do!  Our friends at The Nourishing Gourmet are fans too - read their informative blog post to learn more about Kerrygold.

Thanks to our loyal customers - we are getting very close to our 100,000th order!  To show our appreciation, the lucky customer who places that 100,000th order will receive a $100 US Wellness Gift Certificate.  We are about 500 orders away from this feat, so be sure and place your next order this week for your chance to win!

If you will be in the San Francisco area this coming weekend, February 4-6, 2011, make plans to attend the Fourfold Path to Healing at the Hyatt Regency San Franciso Airport.  Our own John Wood will be there with plenty of samples to try, along with our friends from Vital Choice Seafood.  Featured speakers include Tom Cowan, MD author of The Fourfold Path to Healing, and Sally Fallon, President of the Weston A. Price Foundation. 


US Wellness Trivia Contest! 

Enter for your chance to win a 15% discount code that can be applied to any one order under 40 lbs.  We will randomly draw 30 winners who email the correct answer on Sunday, January 30.  Promo codes will be emailed on Monday morning and will be active for 30 days. 

This week's question: "This year the Super Bowl is being held in the new Cowboys Stadium in North Texas.  How many teams have played the Super Bowl on their home turf?"  Please email your answers to jen@grasslandbeef.com.

Thanks to all who have been participating in our Trivia Contests! In the last news alert, we asked: What are the three main types of Omega-3 fatty acids?  The answer was: ALA, EPA and DHA.

Question and Answer Column

Eric Seranno

Dear Dr. Serrano,

George's question was posted in the January 9th Wellness newsletter and he asked if organic pasturized butter was as healthy as organic raw butter. You said that raw butter was better but you didn't really address whether or not organic pasturized butter was at least the next best thing since raw butter is not very available and is quite expensive.   


Does pasturized organic butter still retain most of the health benefits of organic raw butter?





Dear Jean,


Sorry about my mistake, usually John keeps me in line. Pasteurized butter is the best thing because it still provides vitamins and minerals and actually some of the fat in butter is heat stable, and the vitamins are protected by the fats.


The only problem is that with heat is that something always changes and I am not aware of any body that has the chemical comparison between raw and pasteurized butter.  If one of our readers has that information I would love to have it.  When you pasteurize milk it is different because now you are heating proteins which are very sensible to heat.


Good luck,


Dr. Serrano

Customer Feedback

BurgersDear John,

I have to take a moment to tell you how much we enjoy your company. I have had health issues in the past and have switched my diet to all organic food and grass fed beef. Yours is by far the BEST. I always keep my freezer stocked.

You make it easy for us as consumers and I want you to know how much I appreciate all the hard work you do to run such a fabulous company with such high standards. Your efforts do not go unnoticed! I feel better than I have in years!!!!

I'll be waiting for the butter with great anticipation. It will make me appreciate it even more.

Thanks for everything you do!

We miss summer!  We still have snow in Northeast Missouri which is causing cabin fever, so we thought we would throw in some warmer-weather photos this week!


US Wellness - Supporting Our Troops

Supporting Our Troops
As the war on terror continues to rage in the Middle East, we continue to follow and support our troops both at home and abroad who work daily to protect our freedom.  Beginning in our 2011 News Alerts we will focus on different organizations and individuals who are making a difference in the lives of our American Soldiers.

WoundedWarriorProjectThis week we would like shine some light on the Wounded Warrior Project.  The WWP was founded by a group of veterans when they saw the struggles their comrades were facing when they started coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan. 

One of the signature programs of the project is the WWP Packs.  These backpacks are packed with essentials such as clothes, toiletries, playing cards, etc., and are handed out to wounded warriors at the start of their hospital stays.  Since many wounded servicemen and women arrive with only the clothes on their backs, this gift is invaluable to them. 

The Wounded Warrior Project provides assistance to our troops in endless ways - by helping them find a job, go back to school, get involved in sports and rehab programs, find counseling, etc.  If you would like to learn more about this tremendous organization, visit their website to learn more about how you can help.
