Muyiwa Folorunso says: ‘Pork has a very rich protein content and also contains a lot of vitamins and minerals. The lean version of pork contains all the essential amino acids required by the body. Important vitamins like B6 and B12 and selenium are all contained in pork.
This cannot be compared with chicken which has B6 and B12 but not selenium. Everything you can find in chicken, you’ll find in pork and more’ which is really interesting and informative.
Muyiwa Folorunso is the co-founder of Porkmoney and Porkoyum, Nigeria’s foremost pig farming and processing companies. He has never been able to turn away since he discovered the taste and benefits of pork.
As Muyiwa Folorunso stated, pork is rich in selenium which is very vital for the proper functioning of the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is an endocrine gland situated in the neck which produces hormones that produces metabolism and cardiovascular functions.
While selenium is critical to thyroid health, it also plays an important role in keeping the immune system healthy, it may help reduce asthma symptoms as well as preventing against heart diseases.
Pork is also very good for the body because its fat composition can be trimmed to a desired level unlike other meat products which have to be consumed with their fat content. Studies have shown that pork is not directly linked to any chronic disease.
The taste of the pudding is always in the eating. Don’t take my word for it or even Muyiwa’s word. Make a strong commitment today to add pork to your menu.
