7 Reasons You Should Be Eating More Eggs
Because of their ‘Cholesterol’ label, these poor, oval shaped, white-bodies, have been pushed away by many. Somewhere along the way we’ve forgotten how much good they can do for us. So stop shying away from eggs. Sure, there’s a lot of research still going on everywhere, these handpicked facts are true anyway.
1. Weight Issues
Yes, it’s true. But it’s not that they eat away the fat. It’s that they’re so filling that you can feel full for a longer period and stay away from cravings.
Getting enough protein is important for the body. Eggs are an excellent source of protein, with a single large egg containing 6 grams.
3. Eye Health
Eggs contain Lutein and Zeaxanthin that powerful antioxidants that tend to build up in the retina of the eye.
4. LDL Cholesterol
LDL is normally known as the ‘bad cholesterol’. There are small, dense LDL particles and then there are large LDL particles. Even if eggs tend to mildly raise LDL cholesterol in some people, studies show that the particles change from small, dense to large LDL- which works out well for you.
Choline is used to build cell membranes and has a role in producing signalling molecules in the brain, along with various other functions. Yes, you got that right, Eggs contain choline- try a 100 mg of it.
The nicer cousin of Cholesterol, HDL is good cholesterol. In one study, 2 eggs per day for 6 weeks increased HDL levels by 10%.
Eggs also contain decent amounts of Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Calcium and Zinc. Now that’s a lot.
