Health benefits of eggs
Eggs are among the foods which are classified as superfoods. They are full of nutrients, and some of which are rare in the modern diet. Here are some health benefits of eggs and the reasons why you should eat them more often:
- One of the most nutritious foods on the planet are eggs. One whole egg has all the nutrients required to turn a cell into a baby chicken.
- Eggs are high in cholesterol. A single egg contains 211 milligrams, which is over half of the recommended daily dose. But, it is important to know that cholesterol in the diet doesn’t necessarily raise cholesterol in your blood.
- Eggs raise HDL, which is the “good” cholesterol. People who have higher levels of High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL) often have a lower risk of stroke, heart disease, and other health problems.
- Choline can be found in the eggs, which is an important nutrient that most people don’t get enough of. Choline has a role in producing signaling molecules in your brain and is used to build cell membranes. There are other functions of choline, too.
- Zeaxanthin and Lutein can be found in the eggs, which are antioxidants that have major benefits for eye health. They help build the retina in the eyes.
- Eggs contain all the essential amino acids in the right ratios and are high in quality protein. Proteins are used to make all kinds of molecules and tissues since they are the main building blocks of the human body, that serve both functional and structural purposes.
