The Benefits of Pork

Not everyone knows that pork is a very healthy white meat due to the fact that it’s a significant source of protein. It’s rich in vitamins such as B6, B12, and niacin, among others. Furthermore, it contains a variety of minerals that help the organs function as they should: zinc, phosphorus, magnesium, and potassium.

Doctors recommended that children should consume this meat during their development, especially because it helps build tissues. Moreover, its thiamine content helps keep you active. In turn, it improves digestion and keeps the immune system healthy.

Nevertheless, always remember that excessive consumption of pork products could lead to an excess of saturated fats. However, this will depend on how it’s cooked, as pork normally contains 2.4 grams of fat.
