Not only is a juicy steak delicious but its health benefits are abundant. Steak is an excellent source of zinc, needed for wound healing; iron, essential for red blood cell production; and vitamin B12, necessary for nerve health. Always check the label and choose “Grass-fed” beef rather than grain or corn fed.
