5 Health Benefits of Eating Eggs

What exactly are the nutritional benefits of an egg? Here we have some of the wonderful health benefits of eating eggs.

1. Better brain health

Eggs, particularly the egg yolk, contain choline, which helps the brains memory function. Along with a super trio of vitamins B12 & D, and omega-3 fatty acids, these nutrients protect the brain from shrinking and developing dementia, and instead promotes healthy brain development.

2. Promotes healthy weight management

Although eggs are nutrient-dense, they are quite low in calories, especially when prepared through boiling or poaching. They contain high quality protein that keeps hungry individuals feeling satiated and from eating excess calories. By consuming nutrient dense eggs, you promote healthy weight management by getting nutrients in without a lot of calories.

3. Protects eyes

Eggs don’t contain one, but two antioxidants that serve as protection for the eyes. Zeaxanthin and lutein are carotenoids that are known as ‘eye vitamins’. These two nutrients protect eyes from macular degeneration, harmful UV rays, and-free radical damage.

4. Improves muscles, skin, hair, and nails

Thanks to its complete essential amino acid profile, free-range eggs contain high quality protein that nourishes our muscles, skin, hair, and nails. Along with its protein content found in the white, the yolk has other nutrients that work synergistically. Strong muscles are supported by strong bones thanks to an eggs calcium content, and skin, hair and nails are not only strong, but vibrant due to its sulfur content.

5. Regulates mood
