- Improved eye sight and prevention of cataracts
According to medical experts, consumption of eggs, spinach, and broccoli on a regular basis can help you decrease the risk of cataracts and age-related lens and retinal degeneration which is the leading cause of blindness in elder people. Eggs are a good source of lutein and zeaxanthin, carotenoid vitamins essential for one’s vision. When combined, they lower the risk of macular degeneration related to age. The carotenoids protect the eyes from sunlight damage, improve the night vision, and also decrease the risk of cataracts by up to 50%.

Proteins are crucial elements of one’s nutrition as the body uses up the proteins to build new and repair old muscle tissues. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and 9 of these amino acids can’t be produced by the body and must be consumed through foods that contain enough amounts of these essential amino acids for promotion and maintenance of body tissue. Eggs, milk, and fish proteins are complete proteins; however, the egg protein is the best one with a rating of 100.
