A lot of us remove the chicken skin without knowing the health benefits it provides. It is known that chicken skin increases cholesterol levels and blood pressure, but the latest researches found that it is not true.
Health experts at the University of Harvard say that moderate consummation of chicken skin doesn’t harm our health at all.
Health benefits of chicken skin:
- Chicken skin contains unsaturated fats which reduce our blood pressure and lower our cholesterol levels.
- It balances our hormones
- It is high in calories.
- It doesn’t need excessive salt
- Chicken skin doesn’t absorb much oil
Here you have enough reasons to start eating chicken skin and maintain your good health.
However you must keep in mind that it still contains more omega-6 fatty acid and omega-3 fats, so you shouldn’t consume it in excessive amount. In excessive amount it can also cause some inflammation and irritation.
