LEAN MEAT and HEALTH - Chicken Lean Meats recipe

Lean meat and health


Lean meats are a great way to add protein to your diet. There are many different types of lean meat including beef, pork, chicken, turkey, lamb, goat, venison, buffalo, ostrich, duck, goose, elk, bison, and others. All these animals have been raised humanely and sustainably. These animals are naturally low in fat and high in protein. When choosing lean meat, look for cuts that are free of visible fat. If possible, choose grass-fed meat over grain-fed meat. Grass-fed meat contains less saturated fats than grain-fed meat.

 Lean meat is a good source of iron, zinc, vitamin B12, and omega-3 fatty acids. Lean meats are also rich in creatine, carnitine, taurine, choline, and glutamine. Glutamine is an amino acid that helps maintain muscle mass and supports immune function. Carnitine is an amino acid that transports long-chain fatty acids into mitochondria where they are burned for energy. Taurine is an amino acid involved in osmoregulation (the maintenance of fluid balance). Creatine is an amino acid found in skeletal muscles that increases endurance and promotes recovery after exercise. Omega-3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids that help reduce inflammation and improve brain functioning.

 Lean meats are also a good source of selenium, copper, manganese, and niacin. Selenium is an antioxidant mineral that helps protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Copper is an enzyme cofactor that helps break down food and produce energy. Manganese is an enzyme cofactor necessary for proper bone formation and reproduction. Niacin is a water-soluble B vitamin that helps convert carbohydrates into glucose.

 Lean meats are a good source of tryptophan, thiamine, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, biotin, and folate. Tryptophan is an amino acid that produces serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates mood. Thiamine is an antioxidant that helps prevent cell damage. Riboflavin is an enzyme cofactor involved in carbohydrate metabolism. Pantothenic acid is an essential B vitamin that helps metabolize carbohydrates and fats. Biotin is a water-soluble B complex vitamin that aids in the production of fatty acids and cholesterol. Folate is a water-soluble B-complex vitamin that helps make DNA and RNA.
