Eggs are incredibly healthy and should
be part of your regular diet.
They are an easy- obtainable, versatile
and inexpensive source of proteins.
Furthermore, they are rich in amino
acids, iron and antioxidants. Moreover,
eggs also improve your health, since
each 85-calorie eggs packs a solid 7
grams of the muscle-builder.
You should eat the whole egg, as its yolk
contains a fat-fighting nutrient called
choline. Thus, it can help you reduce
excess pounds.
Nevertheless, you need to be careful and
always look at the labels of eggs, and
choose organic ones. Organic eggs do
not contain antibiotics, hormones and
vaccines, and their quality is regulated
by the USDA.
On the other hand, this is not the case
with their color. Namely, Molly Morgan,
RD, a board certified sports specialist
dietician based in upstate New York,
claims that the color of the egg differs
according to the type of the chicken, but
the nutritional value is the same.
Eggs are extremely healthy food, so it is
highly advisable to include them in your
daily menu.
Here are 12 most important reasons to
do so:
1.Eggs Can Save Your Life
Many of you do not know that the
human body can produce eleven
essential amino acids, necessary to
sustain life, but it needs nine more, so
can you guess where can you find the
rest? In eggs, indeed! A lack of those 9
amino acids can lead to muscle wasting,
decreased the immune response,
weakness, fatigue, and changes to the
texture of your skin and hair.

2. Improve Your Cholesterol Profile
We all know some the main things
concerning cholesterol, that it can be
bad if high, that there are two types of
cholesterol: good and bad, and that
eggs contain cholesterol in large
amounts.
Nevertheless, the ratio of ‘good’
cholesterol, or HDL, and ‘bad’
cholesterol, or LDL, is the main concern
of doctors. Namely, there are 212
milligrams of cholesterol in a big egg.
However, this does not indicate that
eggs raise the ‘bad’ cholesterol levels in
the blood. Out body constantly produces
cholesterol.
However, numerous studies have shown
that eggs can, actually improve your
cholesterol profile, as they increase the
HDL, the good cholesterol, and the size
of the LDL particles.

3. Boost Your Immune System
An egg or two in the day can help you
prevent infections, diseases and viruses.
Namely, eggs include around a quarter
(about 22 percent) of your RDA of
selenium, a nutrient that boosts your
immune system and regulates the
thyroid hormones.
It is also advisable that children
consume eggs. Selenium deficiency in
children and adolescents may cause the
development of two illnesses which
involve the joints, bones and heart,
Keshan disease and Kashin-Beck
disease.
4. Reduce The Risk Of Heart Diseases
LDL cholesterol is ‘bad’ cholesterol,
since LDL particles broadcast their fat
molecules into artery walls, and drive
atherosclerosis, mainly botching the
arteries.
Conversely, the HDL particles discard fat
molecules from the arteries’ walls.
Nevertheless, there are several kinds of
LDL particles, so they can differ in size.
Namely, scientific research has shown
that the bigger the particles, the better,
as people with predominantly small,
dense LDL particles have a higher risk of
cardiovascular issues compared to
individuals who have predominantly
large ones.
What’s more, researchers have found
that although in some cases, eggs can
raise the LDL cholesterol, they enlarge
small LDL particles, leading to a reduced
risk of heart disease.
5. Improve the brain function
The essential nutrient called choline
found in eggs provides their nutritive
value and power. It is a component of
cell membranes and is needed for the
acetylcholine synthesis.
Believe it or not, a U.S. dietary survey
found that more than 90% of Americans
consume less than the daily
recommended amount of this
neurotransmitter. According to many
studies, low amounts of choline can
cause neurological disorders and
impaired cognitive function.
6. Eggs lead to healthy teeth and bones
Being one of the rare natural sources of
Vitamin D, eggs are extremely beneficial
for the health of the bones and teeth, as
they strengthen them. They help the
calcium absorption, which is crucial for
the healthy function of the heart, colon
and metabolism.
7. Eggs can improve your hair and skin
B-complex vitamins are crucial for the
healthy condition and appearance of
your skin, hair, eyes, and liver, and eggs
are abundant in B2, B% and B12. They
also maintain the proper brain function.
8. Great for your eye health
Two antioxidants, found in the egg yolk,
lutein and zeaxanthin, protect the eyes
and promote eye health.
These antioxidants significantly
decrease the risk of macular
degeneration and cataracts, which are
among the major reasons for blindness
and vision impairment in the case of
older people.
The findings of a study published in the
American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
pointed out that participants who
regularly consumed 1.3 egg yolks for a
month experienced increased blood
levels of zeaxanthin by 114-142% and
lutein by 28-50%.
9. Eggs can help you lose weight
Eggs are known to be very useful in the
process of melting fat and losing excess
pounds. The major reason for this may
be the fact that they provide a longer
feeling of fullness.
The findings of a study on this subject
were remarkable: in eight weeks, people
ate a breakfast of either eggs or bagels,
with equal amount of calories.
Compared to the other group,
participants who consumed eggs lost
65% more body weight, 16% more body
fat, experienced a 61% greater reduction
in BMI and reduced 34% more in waist
circumference.
10. You’ll Feel Fuller And Eat Less
They are so rich source of quality
protein, that all other sources of protein
are measured compared to eggs. Many
studies have demonstrated the effect of
high-protein foods on appetite. In other
words, they take the edge off. On a
scale called the Satiety Index, which
estimates how much foods contribute to
the feeling of fullness, eggs score pretty
high.

11. Eggs Eliminate stress and anxiety
The deficiency of the nine amino acids
that can be found in eggs can affect the
mental health. According to a study
from 2004, published in Proceedings of
the National Academy of Sciences,
potentially by adjusting serotonin in the
nervous system, diets containing lysine
greatly decreased anxiety and stress
levels.
12. Eggs provide much energy
Vitamin B2, also known as riboflavin, is
part of the eight B-group vitamins.
These vitamins are extremely beneficial
for the body, as they promote the energy
production, by converting the consumed
food into fuel. Namely, an egg contains
15 percent of your RDA of vitamin B2!
Apart from energizing your body, eggs

toned body.
