Health Benefits Of Duck
Duck is an animal protein that provides some of the beneficial nutrients common in red meat (such as iron), without as much saturated fat as red meat.
Boosts the Immune System
Duck (along with Brazil nuts, fish, and other animal proteins) is a good source of selenium, an important antioxidant that can help prevent cell damage and fight inflammation, both of which support the body’s immune system.
Supports Thyroid Health
Consuming an adequate amount of selenium is also important for thyroid health.3 A 3-ounce portion of Pekin duck meat provides over 50% of the daily value for selenium.
Some research shows that consuming animal protein, including duck, may improve bone density and strength—as long as calcium intake is also sufficient.4
Reduces Heart Disease Risk
While oily fish is considered a top source of omega-3 fatty acids, duck also contains these heart-healthy acids. Eating duck (and other forms of poultry) in place of steak and other meats high in saturated fat also has the potential for some positive health outcomes related to the risk of cardiovascular disease. Plus, duck provides about as much iron as red meat, significantly more than you get from chicken.
