Vitamins and Minerals

These are the most abundant ones:

  • Vitamin B12: Important for blood formation and the function of the brain, vitamin B12 is only found in animal-derived foods, and is absent from vegan diets. Deficiency in vitamin B12 may cause anemia and neurological damage.
  • Selenium: Meat is often a rich source of selenium, although this depends on the feed of the source animal. Selenium has various important functions in the body.
  • Zinc: Found in high amounts in lamb, zinc is usually much better absorbed from meat than plants. It is an essential mineral that is important for growth and the formation of hormones, such as insulin and testosterone.
  • Niacin: Also called vitamin B3, niacin serves a variety of important functions in the body. Inadequate intake of niacin has been linked with increased risk of heart disease.
  • Phosphorus: Found in most foods, phosphorus is essential for body growth and maintenance.
  • Iron: Lamb is a rich source of iron, mostly in form of heme iron, which is highly bioavailable and is absorbed more efficiently than non-heme iron found in plants.

 As an excellent source of high-quality protein, lamb may promote the growth and maintenance of muscle mass.
