Eat pork tenderloin as a good source of the essential minerals selenium and phosphorus. Selenium helps regulate your metabolism by controlling the activity of thyroid hormones, and it also protects the cells that line your blood vessels from damage. A 3-ounce serving of pork tenderloin contains 26.2 micrograms of selenium, or 48 percent of the recommended daily intake. The phosphorus abundant in pork tenderloin helps control enzyme activity, makes up a component of DNA and contributes to strong bone tissue. Each serving contains 210 milligrams, which is 30 percent of your daily recommended phosphorus intake.

Pork tenderloin is relatively low in calories; a 3-ounce portion, with any visible fat removed, contains just 93 calories. Roughly three-quarters of these calories come from the tenderloin's 17.8 grams of protein. You can use this protein to make hormones, as well as to maintain strong tissues. Pork tenderloin also contains 1.8 grams of fat per serving, which accounts for 17 percent of its calories. Fat helps you absorb vitamins from your food and also provides energy you need to support your active lifestyle.
