With its high protein content, chop suey is a great way to get the necessary proteins that our bodies need for tissue repair, energy and a strong immune system. In addition, the vitamin C in the dish protects against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, eye disease, prenatal health problems and even aging effects such as skin wrinkling.

Chop suey is high in iron, which aids the blood in carrying oxygen from the lungs to the muscles and other organs, and is therefore highly recommended for pregnant women. Additionally, it is high in magnesium, which is an essential micronutrient that regulates the functioning of the body's muscles and the heart beat. It is therefore especially useful for people who suffer from a heart condition, in conjunction with the fact that is it low in sodium. As an antitoxidant, chop suey is an average source of selenium, which is especially effective in combination with vitamin E.
