Chicken is one of the most common birds eaten occasionally. This is because it has a variety of health benefits to the body. For instance, it provides you with lean proteins since they have no cholesterol or fat and have very low carbohydrates. The fiber and certain enzymes in them also help to lower cholesterol levels. Moreover, the high lean protein content found in them helps burn cholesterol when they are digested. Balancing levels of cholesterol between LDL or bad cholesterol and HDL or good cholesterol is essential in the prevention of various cardiovascular diseases like atherosclerosis, heart attack, and stroke.
Anemic patients are characterized by having low levels of iron in their blood, resulting in fatigue, headaches, reduced neural function, and digestive issues. This meal is a very good source of iron, and over 90% of the nutritive iron value can be absorbed by the body, which promotes the formation of red blood cells and keeps people healthy and functioning at their full potential.
Adding chicken to your diet at least twice a week can be of benefit to your health. This is because these bird's meat are very effective in preventing breast and prostate cancer due to the significant presence of beta-glucans and conjugated linoleic acid, which both these acids have anti-carcinogenic effects. Out of these two, linoleic acid is particularly helpful in suppressing the harmful effects of excess estrogen. This increase in estrogen is one of the prime causes of breast cancer in women after menopause. The beta-glucans, on the other hand, inhibit the growth of cancerous cells in cases of prostate cancer.
Vitamin B6 (or B-complex vitamins) encourage enzymes and metabolic cellular reactions (or a process known as Methylation), which means eating this bird will keep blood vessels healthy, energy levels high, and metabolism burning calories so you can manage a healthy weight and activity level.
Chicken also happens to be rich in niacin, one particular B-vitamin that guards against cancer and other forms of genetic (DNA) damage.
Chicken is high in retinol, alpha and beta-carotene, and lycopene, all derived from vitamin A, and all vital for healthy eyesight.
