7 reasons why chicken is healthy to eat
It is full of essential nutrients that your body needs. It carries fewer unhealthy qualities that other meats have. A boneless, skinless chicken breast is an excellent low-fat food that can be prepared in a variety of ways.
Chicken is one of the best non-vegetarian sources of protein. It is lean meat, that means it contains more amount of proteins and less amount of fat. A 100g serving of roasted chicken contains 31g of protein, making it great for those who want to bulk up and build muscles.
A chicken breast is rather low in saturated fat compared to many protein alternatives, especially when the skin is removed. By substituting this poultry for higher-fat cuts of meat, you will lower your risk of developing heart disease by reducing your “bad” cholesterol. This will also help you maintain a healthy weight. Grilling, broiling and baking are great cooking methods to keep the fat content at its lowest.
Prevents bone health
This poultry is rich in several minerals like phosphorus and calcium. These minerals help to keep bones in good condition. Also, it has selenium which has been known to cut the risk of arthritis.
The bone broth in chicken soup contains collagen, which helps boost your immune system, in addition to amino acids and nutrients that help prevent inflammation.
This meat has two nutrients that are great for reducing stress – Tryptophan and Vitamin B5. Both of them have a calming effect, and this makes it an excellent option after a stressful day. If you’re feeling depressed, eating some poultry will increase the serotonin levels in your brain, enhance your mood and blasting stress.
