Studies have shown that all-natural, grain-fed, Black Wagyu beef composition is quite different than that of commercial American beef alone, producing meat that is healthier for consumers. Because Wagyu cattle are fed for a longer period of time than commercial cattle, the fat is higher in monounsaturated fat leading to higher levels of oleic acid, omega-6, omega-3, and other essential fatty acids, thus eating Wagyu regularly may actually reduce the effects of some cardiovascular health issues such as high cholesterol.
