One of my favorite protein sources, naturally-raised bison is truly delicious.
It also offers a host of vitamins, a big one being iron which aids in many metabolic reactions and the regulation of cell growth, both of which help you build muscle and keep a lean physique. It also encourages proper function of the liver, an important detox organ. So fire up the grill and enjoy the many benefits of this awesome bison burger – including the awesome taste!
