Health Benefits of Wild Game

Wild game is leaner, has fewer calories, less saturated fat and significantly higher percentage of cholesterol-reducing polyunsaturated fatty acids compared to domesticated animals. Wild game is a heart-healthy choice. Game meat also has a significantly higher content of EPA (Eico Sapentaenoic Acid), a type of omega 3 fatty acid. Wild game has a full spectrum of antioxidants such as C, E, flavonoids, and carotenoids.These phytonutrients can help the body prevent a range of diseases, including heart disease and various types of cancer. Wild game also contains essential vitmains such as vitamin B12 and riboflavin, which aid the proper functioning of your body's red blood cells, boost your immune system and contribute to tissue repair. Wild Game averages one-third the calories of beef, one-eighth the fat content of beef, and is lower in cholesterol than a skinless chicken breast. There is no safer, more nutritious meat.
