An 87-g serving of chicken breast contains 3.3 g of monounsaturated fat. According to both the American Heart Association, consuming monounsaturated fats can reduce blood cholesterol levels and reduce risk of cardiovascular disease and strokes. Foods with monounsaturated fats are generally high in the antioxidant vitamin E, which can help fight off cell-damaging chemicals in the body.
Chicken breast contains about 1.7 g of polyunsaturated fat per 87-g serving. Like monounsaturated fat, polyunsaturated fat can reduce blood cholesterol and reduce risk of heart disease. Included in the polyunsaturated fat category are the essential fatty acids, or EFAs, omega-3 and omega-6. Unlike other fats, dogs and cats cannot manufacture EFAs, and they must consume them through food. EFAs assist with brain function, tissue growth and, researchers are continuing to investigate their ability to prevent cognitive disorders, cardiovascular disease and arthritis.
