Health Benefits of Eggs

 After decades of being accused of causing heart attacks, eggs were mostly cleared for eating again in 2000, that's when the American Heart Association (AHA) revised its dietary guidelines and said it was okay for healthy adults to eat eggs once again. The AHA's guidelines now allow an egg a day for healthy adults while still advising a total daily cholesterol limit of 300 mg.

 

Scientists learned at one point that high blood cholesterol was associated with heart disease so they blamed foods with high cholesterol content like eggs, but after decades of research it now appears as though cholesterol in diet doesn't actually increase blood cholesterol that much and is not the enemy of good health. Saturated fats do much more to raise cholesterol levels in the blood.

Studies have shown that eggs are not harmful for your heart and may actually reduce the risk of heart disease.

There are some studies that show that eggs will increase the good cholesterol, HDL.

Cooked egg yolks have antioxidant properties that are equivalent to that of an apple.

Eggs contain lutein a powerful antioxidant that helps protect our eyes from age related degeneration.

Eggs are also an incredible source of high-quality protein and fat and nutrients that many are deficient in.

Free-range organic eggs are the best, containing higher levels of nutrients than conventional.

A single large boiled egg contains:

Vitamin A: 6% of the RDA.
Folate: 5% of the RDA.
Vitamin B5: 7% of the RDA.
Vitamin B12: 9% of the RDA.
Vitamin B2: 15% of the RDA.
Phosphorus: 9% of the RDA.
Selenium: 22% of the RDA.
Eggs also contain decent amounts of Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Calcium and Zinc.
 

An egg contains 6-12 grams of protein which we need to build muscle.

Eggs contain choline which is used to build cell membranes.

Eggs can help you feel fuller longer, leading to weight loss.

There are some people that are allergic to eggs.
