Sadly most people assume that bacon and other tasty high-fat foods are very dangerous. But what if bacon is actually good for us? What if it actually provides many health benefits? It’s finally time to hear what the actual science and medical tests have to say on the matter of bacon’s nutritional benefits to our health.
Top Reasons why bacon is good for you
Loaded with Protein
The protein found in bacon is extremely valuable to maintaining our energy levels and a fully functioning, healthy body, with a minimum of those nasty, waist, thigh and butt expanding, fat-building carbohydrates.
If you suffer from inflammation, bacon is your best friend. Because of its high monounsaturated fat content, bacon can improve tryglycerides, lower blood pressure, and keep you feeling satiated.

Bacon is full of a vital nutrient called “choline,” which helps increase our intelligence and memory. Studies have shown that choline improves memory, intelligence testing and reduces the speed of damage to the brain from dementia.
Loaded with Essential Vitamins & Minerals
Bacon has one of the highest amounts of essential amino acids (meaning your body needs them but can’t make them) out there, including tryptophan (important for brain health), leucine (builds muscles), and glutamic acid (essential for your nervous system).From bacon, we receive: 65% of our Recommended Daily Intake of Thiamin (Vitamin B1) as well as 47% of our Niacin (Vitamin B3), 38% of our Vitamin B12, 36% of our Zinc, 24% of our Vitamin B6, 22% of our Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), 22% of our Phosphorus, 10% of our Pantothenate, 10% of our Magnesium, 9% of our Iron and the Protein to fat balance in bacon is actually 4 to 1, which is one of the highest protein to fat balances found in any meat, fish or fowl found on Earth.
Effective Mood Elevator
Bacon is a natural mood enhancer that helps encourage positive mental states. In fact, bacon is an addictive substance that has a neurological impact on the brain.
Protects the Heart
Bacon contains omega-3 fatty acids, which are the same nutrients found in fish. The healthy benefits of omega fatty acids are the reduced cholesterol and improved overall health in the heart. In fact several studies that show that the Omega-3 Fatty Acids and “choline” found in bacon can actually protect the heart.
