Which comes first the chicken or the egg? This is a causality dilemma which often evoke the question of how life & the universe first began. Metaphorically & obviously one cannot exist without the other. But we are not about to argue over the answer. It’s just to illustrate the fact that the egg is undoubtedly the single most complete natural food available . . . out of which the chicken is hatched. As such, it can indeed be classified as a “superfood” with the all nutrients necessary to sustain life.

I have read many a conflicting report on the consumption of eggs. Some said this, some said that . . . advising for health reason just eating the egg white & dispense with the yolk. Yet this is the part containing 43% of the protein that feeds the developing embryo.

Egg white consists primarily about 90% water into which is dissolved 10% proteins (including albumins, mucoproteins, and globulins). Unlike the yolk, which is high in lipids (fats), egg white contains almost no fat, and carbohydrate content is less than 1%. Egg whites contain just over 50% of the protein in the egg.

  • Eggs Are Incredibly Nutritious – Eggs are among the most nutritious foods on the planet. A whole egg contains all the nutrients required to turn a single cell into a baby chicken.A single large boiled egg contains: Vitamin A: 6% of the RDA, Vitamin B5: 7%, Vitamin B12: 9%, Vitamin B2: 15%, Phosphorus: 9%, Selenium: 22%.

  • Eggs also contain decent amounts of Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Calcium & Zinc.

  • This is coming with 77 calories, 6 grams of protein and 5 grams of healthy fats.

  • Eggs also contain various other trace nutrients that are important for health.

  • Really… eggs are pretty much the perfect food, they contain a little bit of almost every nutrient we need.

  • If you can get your hands on pastured or Omega-3 enriched eggs, then these are even better. They have more Omega-3s and are much higher in Vitamin A and E.

  • Bottom Line: Whole eggs are among the most nutritious foods on the planet, containing a little bit of almost every nutrient we need. Omega-3 enriched and/or pastured eggs are even healthier.

  • Eggs Are High in Cholesterol, but They Don’t Adversely Affect Blood Cholesterol.

  • Raise HDL (The “Good”) Cholesterol

  • Eggs Raise HDL (The “Good”) Cholesterol

  • Turn LDL Cholesterol From Small, Dense to Large, Linked to a Reduced Risk of Heart Disease

  • Eggs Contain Lutein and Zeaxanthin, Antioxidants That Have Major Benefits For Eye Health

  • In the Case of Omega-3 or Pastured Eggs, They Lower Triglycerides as Well

  • Eggs Are High in Quality Protein, With All The Essential Amino Acids in The Right Ratios

  • Eggs do NOT Raise Your Risk of Heart Disease and May Reduce The Risk of Stroke

  • Eggs Are Highly Fulfilling and Tend to Make You Eat Fewer Calories, Helping You to Lose Weight

  • Eggs Are Highly Fulfilling and Tend to Make You Eat Fewer Calories, Helping You to Lose Weight

Studies clearly show that eating up to 3 whole eggs per day is perfectly safe.

There is no evidence that going beyond that is harmful, it is just “uncharted territory” as it hasn’t been studied.

Egg giving life to chicken itself is proof of its miraculous food nutrients. Undoubtedly, you can’t go wrong with egg consumption.

PEOPLE BEEN EATING EGGS FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS.
