The Health Benefits of Eggs

Does anyone remember that commercial “The Incredible Edible Egg”?  Here’s a link to that classic low quality 90’s video. 🍳 Now that I’ve been all into this health and fitness journey for quite some time, eggs are a major staple in my meals. Especially breakfast. Why? Several reasons.

  1. The whites are rich sources of selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron and copper.
  2. They Are High in Cholesterol, But They Don’t Adversely Affect Blood Cholesterol
  3. They Raise HDL (The “Good”) Cholesterol
  4. They Contain Choline – an Important Nutrient That Most People Don’t Get Enough of
  5. Eggs Turn LDL Cholesterol From Small, Dense to Large, Linked to a Reduced Risk of Heart Disease
  6. They Contain Lutein and Zeaxanthin, Antioxidants That Have Major Benefits For Eye Health
  7. In the Case of Omega-3 or Pastured Eggs, They Lower Triglycerides as Well
  8. They Are High in Quality Protein, With All The Essential Amino Acids in The Right Ratios
  9. Eggs do NOT Raise Your Risk of Heart Disease and May Reduce The Risk of Stroke
  10. They Are Highly Fulfilling and Tend to Make You Eat Fewer Calories, Helping You to Lose Weight
