Have a cup or two before bed, it calms nerves and promotes good sleep zzzZZZZ.
Grass fed beef
You knew that was coming, right? Grass fed beef has increased levels of Omega 3 fatty acids and far less inflammatory Omega 6. Healthy Omega 3’s are linked with a lower risk of a host of disorders, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, depression, and inflammatory disease. Just Jerky can help with this, our beef jerky is packed to the brim with the best natural ingredients, giving our jerky a delicious taste and flavour.
