A lot of health organizations issued warnings about the cholesterol present in eggs. Eggs, just like coconut oil and avocados were thought to be bad for the health. According to medical experts, when we consume foods rich in cholesterol, the liver adjusts itself by lowering its own production.
This means that consumption of eggs doesn’t increase the already existing amount of cholesterol in the body, but it only replaces one type with another. Consumption of whole eggs is crucial for one’s health. For example, the yolk has an abundance of healthy nutrients. In fact, more than 90% of the egg’s calcium and iron are found in the yolk. Additionally, the egg white contains half of the egg’s protein. These are 10 reasons why you need to consume eggs on a regular basis:
- Improved performance
Eggs have a high satiety index which means that the eggs will make you feel full. Hence, a medium sized egg has 6 grams of high-quality protein and other essential nutrients, except vitamin C. Therefore, you should consume fruit or orange juice with eggs and whole-wheat/low GI bread for breakfast as breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
- Iron deficiency problems
A great part of the population suffers mild iron deficiency and as a result they experience symptoms like fatigue, irritability, and headaches. Iron is in charge of oxygen supply to the blood and therefore it is very important for the immune system, energy metabolism, etc. The iron found in the yolk of the egg is in the form of heme iron, the most absorbable and usable form of iron present in food. Moreover, many experts believe that this iron is much more absorbable than the iron found in supplements.
