It is made of amino acids that make up protein which are the building blocks of our muscle.

Chicken, an important source of minerals and vitamins, health benefits include controlling blood pressure, development of muscles, healthy bones, reduces PMS symptoms, prevent cataracts and skin disorders.

It also boost immunity and testosterone levels, eliminates weakness, regulates digestion, improves the nervous system, as well as preventing migraines, heart disorders, grey hair, high cholesterol, reduced cancer risk, diabetes and weight reduction.

Diets with high levels of protein have been known to be effective in reducing weight and chicken has been one of the main contenders in weight loss, since it provides high protein content.

Tips

Here are suggestions that may help you reap the maximum nutritional benefits of chicken:

  1. It is healthier to consume hormone-free, 100% organic free range chicken, if possible.
  2. It is healthier to discard the skin prior to consumption, as chicken skin tends to be fatty.
  3. Chicken meat should always be cooked thoroughly prior to consumption, since raw chicken meat commonly has the salmonella organism that can make you very sick if ingested.
  4. Using soap and water be sure to wash all surfaces and hands that come in contact with raw chicken meat.
  5. Sensitive to heat, it is best to marinate or defrost chicken in the refrigerator rather than at room temperature.
  6. Raw chicken can be frozen up to 2 years.
