3 Secret Health Benefits of Bacon for Men

The USA is a bacon-loving nation, with the average American man consuming in the region of 18 pounds of bacon every year according to the Foundation for Economic Education. Indeed, there aren’t many things in life that can compare to waking up to the sound and smell of bacon sizzling on the stove. While bacon is indisputably one of the world’s most delectable foods, it can also rightfully claim its place in a balanced, nutrient-dense diet. Thanks to containing high levels of very beneficial nutrients such as Omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin B, and phosphorus, bacon can a positive impact on various aspects of a man’s health.

It can boost your libido

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is an understandably sensitive topic. It cannot, however, be ignored as nearly 30 million young men are living with the condition to varying degrees. Although there are many reputable therapies that can be employed to treat ED, indulging in your favorite breakfast food may also prove to be very beneficial.  While bacon is not your typical in-the-mood food, it has been known to improve sexual prowess in men. Bacon is a good source of selenium which, when consumed in moderation, can give your libido a healthy boost. It has also been found that the mere smell and joy experienced from eating bacon can elicit feelings that can improve performance between the sheets.

It boosts your brainpower

The brain is without any doubt one of the most valuable organs of the human body.  Special nutrients are required for the brain to function optimally and to ward off any degenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s, which affects one in ten Americans over the age of 65. Thankfully, consuming healthy amounts of bacon can boost your brainpower and keep your brain functioning at its best. Bacon contains significant amounts of choline which has been proven to reduce the rate of memory loss over time. A recent study conducted by the University of Eastern Finland has found that the use of choline in the production acetylcholine (a prominent neurotransmitter), may help combat the cognitive decay typically associated with dementia and Alzheimer’s.

It protects your heart

One of the most surprising health benefits of bacon is that it is actually good for your heart.  Despite having to endure somewhat of a bad reputation for clogging your arteries, bacon actually contains an astounding amount of Omega-3 fatty acids that can aid in reducing cholesterol and improving overall cardiac health.  Bacon also contains vast amounts of saturated fats and oleic acids which can decrease cholesterol levels even more. All of this is great news for the thousands of American men who are at an increased risk of strokes, heart attacks, and peripheral artery disease brought on by high cholesterol.  Although too much of a good thing is never a good idea, you can indulge in a few pieces of bacon for breakfast (or lunch/dinner) without having to feel guilty about causing irreparable damage to your heart.

Bacon is not only delicious but very nutritious as well. When consumed as part of a balanced diet, it can be of great benefit to the typical, bacon-loving American man.
