Q: Can Wagyu beef be enjoyed as part of a healthy, balanced diet?
A: Definitely yes! A 4-ounce serving of Wagyu provides you with more than ten essential nutrients needed for daily healthy living. These nutrients include protein, iron, zinc, vitamins B12 and B6, choline, selenium, phosphorus, niacin, and riboflavin. Additionally, Wagyu beef is rich in Omega-3 which has good cholesterol and is healthy for the heart.
Q: How much Wagyu beef should I eat at a meal to meet my daily protein requirements?
A: Not all food sources have all the nine essential amino acid which are building blocks of proteins, except animal protein sources such as Wagyu beef. Therefore Wagyu beef is a great protein option and source of essential nutrients to enjoy any day and for any meal! Dietary guidelines recommend that adults eat about 5.5 ounces of protein foods, including beef, per day which is about 25-30 grams of protein for optimal body benefits. Thus, adding Wagyu beef into your various meals will help you meet your required protein needs, increase satisfaction level, and preserve lean muscle mass.
Q What are the benefits of the ten essential nutrients to the body
A: Wagyu beef contains high-quality protein which helps to preserve the muscles, manage weight, and prevent chronic diseases. It also contains zinc and B-Vitamins which help to build muscles, heal wounds, maintain the immune system, contribute to cognitive health, and improve brain function. The other nutrients are Iron (helps the body to use oxygen), Choline (supports nervous system development), Selenium (helps protect cells from damage), Phosphorus (helps build bones and teeth), Niacin (supports energy production and metabolism), and Riboflavin (helps convert food to fuel). With Wagyu beef, you can say it has it all.
Q what nutritional benefits does Wagyu beef offer me that other proteins don’t
A: Wagyu beef is a nutritional powerhouse in a smaller package than any other protein foods providing about 25 grams of protein per Wagyu serving. Furthermore, it would take about 8 ounces of a cooked chicken breast to gain the same about of iron contained in just 3 ounces of Wagyu beef, and nearly about 20 ounces of chicken to get the same amount of zinc in a serving of Wagyu beef.
Q Does Wagyu beef improve cholesterol levels?
A: Absolutely! Research shows that a heart-healthy lifestyle that includes Wagyu beef, even on a daily basis, improved cholesterol levels. Wagyu beef contains 50% mono-saturated fatty acids which reduce cholesterol levels, prevent chronic diseases, and help in weight loss. It further has a significant amount of both oleic and linoleic acids which functions to improve the heart and immune systems, fight cancer and reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. Interestingly, Wagyu beef has the lowest amount of cholesterol when compared to other kinds of meat, 10mg per 100 gram.
Q Can plant-based diets and proteins provide the same amount of protein as Wagyu beef?
A: Many sources of plant protein do not have all the essential amino acids needed for your body. Wagyu beef provides more protein and nutrients than any plant proteins in significantly fewer calories. A 4 ounce Wagyu beef supplies about 280 – 330 calories and 25 grams of protein making it an ideal option that will satisfy your daily value for protein and prevent deficiency.

November is here! Which also means it is Movember! A month when men grow and groom a moustache to help raise fund and create awareness about men’s health especially prostate cancer and depression. According to the world cancer research fund international, 15% of all cancer cases in men are prostate cancer, affecting an alarming number of over 1.1 million men worldwide; this makes it the most dominant cancer faced by men.
Prostate cancer affects the prostate gland, the gland that is in charge of producing some of the fluids in semen. It also plays a crucial role in urine control in men. The prostate gland can be found below the bladder and in front of the rectum. Most times, untested men may not know they have developed prostate cancer until its later stage. There are several symptoms to look out for in order to detect prostate cancer early.
Noticeable symptoms include:
- More frequent urination, especially at night
- Difficulties, pain or burning sensation while urinating
- Feeling like the bladder is never empty
- Difficulties starting or stopping urination
- Blood in urine stream and semen
- Discomfort in the pelvic region
- Bone pain
- Erectile dysfunction
Lads Burger is joining the movement, and we encourage both men and women to join and support us on this journey by Growing the Mo to increase awareness (for only men, of course :)).
We believe that increased knowledge will increase early cancer detection, diagnosis and effective treatments and ultimately reduce its mortality rate. Together we can make a difference.
Grow Mo with Lads and win with us.

It is that time of the year when the breeze is back, and the temperature is dropping, it is a time when friends, families, campers, rock climbers, and adventurers leave the comfort of their homes and embark on an amazing outdoor bonding experience. To make it worthwhile; there must be good food, food prepared fast and with relative ease, mostly from a grill. One of such food that requires grill expertise when outdoor is the burger because a well-grilled patty will produce maximum taste and optimal tenderness.
Beef is an important food as it provides us with the necessary nutrients needed to keep our body healthy.

It’s nothing new, we have all been there, in fact, it happens to the best of us. Though we don’t advice you going over the limit but, sometimes happiness and fun can make us go over the top.
Food is a necessity. We all need to eat to gain enough strength to carry out our day to day activities. However, for some people, food is not just food, it encompasses art, culture, emotion, passion, health, and science all rolled into one. If they want pasta, it must be the best! People are beginning to associate themselves with food that gives them pleasure and set them on a path to gluttony.
