Scrambled, hard-boiled, boiled or boiled, eggs are part of our diet and are very popular with young and old for their pleasant taste.
Some health benefits of eggs:
Rich in nutrients:
Containing significant amounts of proteins, vitamins (A, B2, B6, B12, D, E), minerals (zinc, phosphorus, selenium, iron, magnesium, etc.) and fatty acids, eggs represent an important source of nutrients for the body, which helps to ensure the proper functioning of its organs and various tissues.
High choline content
Choline is an essential nutrient, considered to be part of the B-complex vitamins. Main constituent of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that plays an important role in the central and autonomic nervous systems, it contributes to the proper development of the brain, to the improved memory and learning. It is also beneficial for pregnant women, given its ability to reduce the risk of malformation in the fetus.
Choline deficiency increases the risk of anencephaly and spina bifida 2.4 times, according to a Stanford University study.
Good for the eyes
Lutein and Zeaxanthin are powerful antioxidant carotenoids that help reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration, protect the eyes from the damaging effects of sunlight, and significantly reduce the chances of developing cataracts.
Nourish the muscles
When our body lacks protein, it draws it from muscle mass, which melts it. Thanks to their concentration in these nutrients, eggs help prevent this phenomenon, nourish and strengthen the various muscle tissues of the body. Even though egg white is known for its high protein content, egg yolk should not be excluded because it also contains a significant amount of it.
