THE UNTOLD STORIES BEHIND RABBIT MEAT

Rabbit meat is more than just a delicacy, nutritionists say. Milicent Achieng, a nutritionist and student at Kenyatta University School of Health Science, says rabbit meat is tastier than chicken.
 
“Rabbit is white meat, which means it is healthier. It nourishes the body with nutritional values like proteins, iron and phosphorus. its low-calorie content almost equates it to a balanced meal that meets the optimal health goals.” Rabbit meat is relatively low on saturated fat compared to beef. Consuming high amounts of saturated fat subjects one to greater risks of coronary heart diseases due to its high cholesterol content.
 
“Additionally, eating rabbit meat adequately meets the body’s demands for protein, an important building block for essential muscle strength. With such strong muscles, the body generates more energy to build and maintain other tissue types, thereby helping increase metabolism,”
 
For one striving to drop weight, rabbit meat, supplemented with any food low in carbohydrates like greens, is ideal.
 
Rabbit meat contains selenium, a mineral the body uses to make antioxidants and stimulate sperm production, with each portion containing 46.8% of the recommended daily value of selenium.
 
This sperm stimulation is boosted by a vitamin commonly known as niacin, which converts carbohydrates to energy, thereby manufacturing a variety of sex hormones. Selenium also guards against hardening of the arteries, as well as cancers such as stomach, lung, prostate and skin cancer.” 
 
Other benefits include brain development — the reason it is recommended for the young and old. Secondly, it is good for a healthy skin.
