Antioxidants are important nutrients for preventing disease, like certain types of cancers. Antioxidants function in the cell membrane and protect against oxidation. Grass-fed beef is higher in antioxidants like Vitamin E compared to conventional beef. Including grass-fed beef into your diet can help you consume more important antioxidants such as Vitamin E.
