February is Heart Health Month
 
Over 29 cuts of nutrient-rich beef meet the American Heart Assocation certification as a lean cut of beef
and a heart-healthy choice.
 
 
February is American Heart Health Month and it is the perfect time to spread the word that beef is the perfect addition to a
heart-healthy diet.
 
The Beef in an Optimal Diet (BOLD) study showed that adding a daily serving of nutrient-packed lean beef to a heart-healthy diet could lower the risk of heart disease by reducing LDL (bad) cholesterol levels.
Bonus - beef also has 10 essential vitamins and minerals!
 
 
 
 
Eight beef cuts are now certified to display the Heart-Check mark, signifying they meet the American Heart Association's requirements for heart-healthy foods as part of a healthy diet.
