Extraordinary Eggs


What’s so extraordinary about eggs? First off, there’s a variety of ways eggs can be prepared: boiled, scrambled, poached, and fried for example. Second, and more importantly, there are the health benefits that make the egg a truly incredible food. Eggs are all-natural and packed with 13 vital nutrients and vitamins, high quality protein, unsaturated fats, and antioxidants. The nutrients provided by eggs can aid with weight management, muscle strength, eye health, brain function, and a healthy pregnancy. Read on to find out more about the benefits of incorporating eggs into your daily diet.

Reduced risk of cancer: A study found that women with a high intake of choline had a 24 percent reduced chance of developing breast cancer. Thirty percent of the daily-required amount of the nutrient choline can be found in the yolk of one egg.

Healthy pregnancy: Egg yolks, providing the nutrient choline, help fetal brain development and prevent birth defects. Two eggs provide half the daily amount of choline needed for pregnant and breastfeeding women, which healthily supports babies before and after birth.

Increased brain function: Choline also improves brain function in adults by preserving the structure of brain cell membranes, and is a necessary part of the neurotransmitter that assists in carrying messages from the brain through nerves to the muscles.

Extend eyesight health: The yolk of an egg is also rich in lutein and zeaxanthin, two antioxidants that have been shown to prevent macular degeneration, the primary cause of age-related blindness.

Improved weight loss efforts: In one study, obese people lost 65 percent more weight and had more energy from beginning their day with a two-egg breakfast at least five times a week. Eggs make a better choice than carb-filled muffins and bagels because they add protein to your plate, making you feel fuller longer. And at 72 calories for each large egg, it’s a great breakfast choice for anyone watching their waistline.

Better bodies: The unique sequence of the amino acids in the protein of an egg make it easy for your body to absorb, an ideal food for repairing muscles after an intense workout. According to research, the high quality protein found in eggs may help active adults build muscle strength, and may help prevent muscle loss in middle-aged and aging adults. Eggs are also rich in vitamin D, which helps your body absorb calcium, and form and maintain strong bones.

When you are at the grocery store or farmer’s market purchasing your next dozen of eggs, don’t forget to consider the label on the carton. While all eggs contain the essential good-for-you nutrients, ones that are enhanced with omega-3 provide more heart healthy fatty acids. Organic eggs also guarantee that the chickens that produced the eggs haven’t been fed antibiotics, harmful byproducts, or additives. Still, anyway you get your eggs you are guaranteed to receive the health benefits of this incredible food. Take advantage of this easily accessible food and see how truly extraordinary the egg is.
