Like all meat, pork is mostly made up of protein. It is one of the richest dietary sources of protein. It contains all the essential amino acids necessary for the growth and maintenance of our bodies. In fact, meat is one of the most complete dietary sources of protein. For this reason, eating pork, or other meats, may be of particular benefit for bodybuilders, recovering athletes, post-surgical patients, or other people who need to build up or repair their muscles. High-quality protein is the main nutritional component of pork, making it useful for muscle growth and maintenance.
Pork has high content of magnesium. This in turn helps in muscle movements through contraction and relaxation of muscles. Magnesium also helps regulate neurotransmitters, which send messages throughout your brain and nervous system.This in turn regulate nervous system functionality.
Pork is also a source of calcium. Calcium not only strengthen bones and teeth but also has other functions like maintaining cardiovascular health. It plays an important part in ensuring that the heart muscles contract as they should, with the heart regulating tight control over calcium ions to ensure that an electrical charge gradient is maintained.
B vitamins help metabolize food into energy, create normal red blood cells and produce neurotransmitters. Pork chops contain all of the B vitamins except folate, but they're an especially good source of three that contribute to cardiovascular health. Niacin lowers levels of cholesterol and triglycerides. Homocysteine is the normal byproduct of biochemical reactions, but if it’s allowed to accumulate in the blood, it increases the risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 remove homocysteine by converting it into beneficial substances.
Zinc is so essential for the creation of new cells that normal growth and development depend on getting enough of it in your diet. While everyone needs zinc, it’s especially important for pregnant women and during growth spurts through adolescence. Zinc forms the structure of protein and supports the immune system. A zinc deficiency impairs the ability of white blood cells to destroy pathogens.
