Are Eggs Healthy to Eat?
Throughout the years, there has been a lot of debate between physicians and nutritionists about the benefits of eating eggs. Eggs are small in size but pack a lot of nutrition that is essential for a well-balanced diet. Just one egg contains approximately six grams of protein, 77 calories, and features Vitamins A, B5, B6, B12, D, E, and K, as well as natural folate, phosphorous, selenium, calcium, and zinc. Eggs also contain five grams of healthy unsaturated fats, so it is essential to eat both the white and the yolk. And, while the yolk does contain approximately 186 milligrams of cholesterol, studies show that eating eggs won’t raise cholesterol levels at all for approximately 70 percent of the population. Those who do have an issue with cholesterol from eggs are considered to be “hyper responders” by medical staff, yet they still will only see a mild increase in the total and low-density (LDL) cholesterol after consuming eggs.
In fact, for many who eat eggs for breakfast in Kingston, Rhode Island, and around the globe, eating eggs increases the good HDL cholesterol levels, which help to lower the risk for heart disease, stroke, and other related health issues. One study even involved consuming two eggs every day for six weeks to boost HDL levels by as much as ten percent. You can even find some eggs that are better than the average barnyard favorite and support local businesses as well. Omega-3 enriched eggs can help to reduce triglycerides, especially for those who don’t eat a lot of fish, nuts, and seeds, which are naturally rich in this nutrient. Eggs can help you to get your daily values of choline, proteins, and amino acids and help you to stay fuller longer than other sugary breakfast foods, which can aid in weight loss.
