There's a common misconception that eating eggs is dangerous. But that's not true — eggs are, on the contrary, safe and healthy.
Eggs are a good source of protein and contain vitamins A, D and E, B12, riboflavin, and folate, as well as minerals such as iodine, iron, calcium, zinc, and selenium.
And most people can eat several eggs a day without their cholesterol levels being adversely affected.
Here's what happens to the body if you eat two eggs every day!
Egg yolks contain the amino acid choline, which affects the nerve signals that help us to remember the little things — where we placed our car keys or cell phone, for example.
Studies show that adding choline to your diet improves memory and responsiveness.
Research shows that eggs are rich in lutein. This vitamin keeps your vision sharp and clear.
Lutein is found naturally in the eye. It protects the retina from sun damage and reduces the risk of cataracts.
Strengthens bones and teeth
Eggs are rich in vitamin D, which regulates the levels of calcium and phosporus in blood.
Eating eggs also helps the body absorb calcium, which strengthens bones and prevents osteoporosis.
Protects the skin, hair, and liver
Folate deficiency is common among women who don't get enough folate, a type of vitamin B.
Fortunately, eggs are a good source of this vitamin. Folate metabolizes amino acids, which are required for cell division and the formation of red blood cells.
Reduces the risk of heart disease
A Canadian research team has found a link between eggy foods and reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer, writes Science Daily.
The secret is that egg yolks contain two important antioxidants: tryptophan and tyrosine.
Contributes to weight loss
American researchers conclude that combining a low calorie diet with eggs for breakfast helps people lose weight twice as quickly.
Another good thing? Eggs keep you feeling full for a long time. So hopefully, you won't have to snack so often — which will definitely help with weight loss.
Eggs contain amino acids that build and renew cells.
As we grow older, our need for vitamin D increases. The recommendation for people over 60 years is 10 micrograms. 1 egg contains approximately 0.7 micrograms of vitamin D.
Strengthens the immune system
Do you want to stay healthy? Eat eggs! Studies show that just two eggs a day can protect you from infections, diseases, and viruses.
One egg contains 22 percent of the recommended intake of selenium, which strengthens the immune system.
Increases the chance of getting pregnant
Vitamin E, which is naturally present in eggs, helps increase the health of sperm in men, and once a woman is pregnant, vitamin E can be found in the fluid surrounding embryos, writes Parents magazine.
A lack of folate, which is also present in eggs, can cause anemia. Folate is also required for fetal development during pregnancy.
