U.S. Wellness News Alert

Great Grilling Specials for Father's Day!  

June 19, 2011
Monticello, Missouri

Dear John,
T-Bones Grilling  

Happy Father's Day!  In honor of one of the most special holidays of the year, we decided to throw a great grilling sale!  Some of our summertime favorites are on sale - T-Bone Steaks, Summer Sausage and two grilling essentials: our All-Natural BBQ Sauce and Lump Charcoal.  So be sure and treat Dad to a special barbecue soon!  


Speaking of Dad - thank you to everyone who entered our "Dad's Dish" contest on Facebook!  The winners have been notified and if you haven't read the entries yet be sure and check them out for some great grilling tips and ideas! 


The good fat!  Not all fats are bad for you, and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids are an essential part of any diet.  This slideshow courtesy of WebMD explains the many benefits of omega-3's and the potential diseases that can possibly be prevented by having a healthy omega-3:6 ratio.  If you are looking to add more omega-3's to your diet, the best way is by eating foods rich with the healthy fat, such as Wild-Caught Salmon, Grass-Fed Meats, Walnuts, and dark leafy vegetables.   


The Endocrine Society released new guidelines recently that suggest Americans are not getting enough Vitamin D in their diets.  According to author Jonny Bowden, Vitamin D deficiency is starting to become a "silent epidemic."  He goes on to say this essential nutrient is important for many reasons: 

  • absorbing calcium for bone health
  • fighting and possibly preventing cancer
  • preventing osteoporosis and multiple sclerosis
  • can help improve physical performance in elderly
  • as we age, it can help prevent dementia, Alzheimer's and disability
  • new mothers with low Vitamin D levels transfer that deficiency to the newborn

According to the Weston A. Price Foundation, Vitamin D helps control the amount of calcium in our blood, thus helping improve bone health, and may even help combat heart disease.  Vitamin D can be absorbed through sunlight, and the best way to get it through diet is by consuming organ meats, oily fish, and cod liver oil which are all excellent sources of Vitamin D.  Sadly, the standard American diet is low in Vitamin D due to the low-fat/vegetarian dieting trends.  For more information on the many health benefits of Vitamin D and a great list of food sources, read The Miracle of Vitamin D on the Weston A. Price website.  If you are looking for a Vitamin D supplement our Vitamin D3 is twice as effective since it comes in a base of Wild Sockeye Salmon Oil which is naturally rich in D3, so be sure to add a bottle to your next order! 


We stumbled upon a  blog post this week that really got us thinking - if we had to choose only ten foods to sustain us for the next ten years, what would they be?  This is a question Mark's Daily Apple tackled this week - and we suggest you check out his answers!  Some of our favorites were listed: Wild Salmon, Grass-Fed Ribeyes, Cheese, Bacon, Broth and Butter - so be sure to read his post to find out why these are all such essential parts of any diet!   


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, June 19.  Promo codes will be emailed on Monday morning and will be active for 30 days. 

This week's question: "What is one of the best food sources of Vitamin D that you are going to add to your diet?"  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: Father's Day was made a permanent holiday when which President signed it into law in 1972?  The answer was: President Nixon. 

Best Father's Day Regards, 

John, Lee Ann, Megan, Tressa, Jennifer and Amanda on behalf of the farm families of U.S. Wellness Meats

Question and Answer Column


Dr. Eric Serrano


Dear Dr. Serrano, 


Can a person get too much iron from grass-fed red meat? I've read that menopausal women have to be careful about getting too much iron.


Thank you!





Dear Terry,   


The only way I would tell somebody to stop eating red meat would be if the person is allergic to red meat which is very rare.  Or, if the person had a condition called hemochromatosis, which is when iron levels are so high that it is dangerous to the person, and still I would only limit the red meat not tell them to stop it.

Terry the answer to your question is a big NO.   

Thank You,  


Dr. Serrano

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.

Mission: ABLEThis week our focus is on The Paralyzed Veterans of America Mission: ABLE, an extraordinary group dedicated to making sure our wounded warriors receive the care and compassion they need and deserve, and help them adjust to life once the return home. 

This is such an important campaign because there are over 40,000 American veterans currently living with paralysis, and the costs for treatment and therapy are astronomical.  Our veterans deserve the best healthcare and rehab treatments possible, and we can help make that possible for them.  There are many ways you can help besides donating funds, which are always needed.  You can send them a Salute, sign up for the newsletter, shop for gear, or follow the group on Twitter or Facebook for more ideas.
