How healthy is venison?

Venison contains only one-third as much fat as beef and fewer calories than chicken.

In addition to being richer in protein than any other red meat, venison also keeps you full for longer, satiating the appetite well.

Protein is an essential nutrient for muscle growth and repair, hormone production, cognitive function and sleep. The grass-fed nature of venison makes it leaner than beef and lower in saturated fat.

Moreover, it's rich in conjugated linoleic acid, which is believed to promote heart health, iron, and B vitamins, which aid in the conversion of food into energy, and play a vital role in brain and nervous system functioning.
