3 Health Benefits of Parmesan Chicken Wings
#1: Supports Joint Health
These crispy baked chicken wings contain added collagen powder, which is amazing for your joints. Here’s how it works.
Your joints are where two or more bones meet. Between your joints lives a connective tissue called cartilage. And cartilage protects your bones from rubbing against each other and causing pain and inflammation.
One of the easiest ways to keep your joints from aging is to maintain healthy cartilage. Strong
cartilage leads to better bone health, and better bones lead to pain-free joints.
So how do you keep your cartilage happy?
One way is to ensure that your body is getting enough of the nutrients needed to provide the building blocks for this incredibly important tissue.
Collagen is an essential component of your cartilage. For people suffering from osteoarthritis supplementing with collagen powder can result in greater physical capabilities, less joint pain, and less stiffness in the joints[*].
Inflammation is a primary component of many common diseases that plague the U.S., including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, neurodegenerative disease, and cancer — to name a few.
One of the best ways to combat inflammation is by changing the way you eat. Limiting carbohydrates and adding plenty of healthy fats is a great place to start lowering chronic inflammation and stopping disease in its tracks.
Olive oil, found abundantly in the Mediterranean diet, contains a potent anti-inflammatory compound called oleocanthal. Oleocanthal has even been compared to Ibuprofen for its anti-inflammatory properties[*].
Research into oleocanthal suggests it may even be protective against cancer, cardiovascular disease, and neurodegenerative diseases[*].
#3: Boosts Immune Health
Garlic has been used for thousands of years as a medicinal plant for a variety of ailments. In modern times, identification of specific compounds in garlic validates the wisdom of our ancestors.
One compound in particular, allicin, shows great potential as an immune-enhancing agent.
In a placebo-controlled study, researchers gave a group of subjects either a control or an allicin-containing garlic supplement for a 12 weeks. The group taking the garlic supplement not only experienced fewer viral infections, but those who did get sick also recovered faster than the control[*].
