Dieting is bigger today than ever before. In 2014, the weight-loss industry market share comprised $59.8 billion, and is projected to grow by a much as 1.4 percent by the end of this year. And with so many diets to follow out there, from paleo to vegan to Atkins to Weight Watchers, that market value should hardly shock you. Most diets have at least one trait in common lately, though, and that’s to cut out fat. Intuitively, it makes sense: I want to lose fat on my body, so I’ll do it by putting less fat into it. But before you go running to buy low-fat everything, take pause, because the fatty acids in omega-3 chicken are an incredibly healthy and nutritious—so much so that you would be loathe to cut it from your dining repertoire.
Omega-3 Chicken Health Benefits
Certain nutrients have clearly defined benefits: beta-carotene helps eyesight and calcium keeps bones strong, for example. Omega-3 blows these nutrients out of the water
- Osteoporosis: Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids (both of which abound in D&D Poultry’s Omega-3 Chicken line) have multiple beneficial effects on bone health, including osteoporosis.
- Arthritis: Omega-3 supplements boost the efficacy of anti-inflammatory drugs used for arthritis treatment; but why take a supplement when you can get your omega-3 with your meals?
- Depression: Latitudinal studies have found that cultures that consume more omega-3 fatty acids tend to have lower rates of clinical depression. Further, omega-3 boosts the efficacy of many antidepressants.
Clearly, omega-3 chicken is an incredibly healthy option for you and your family. D&D Poultry’s Omega line offers high-quality chicken from a local Ontario farm, so you can be confident in your dietary choices.
