Eggs are definitely one of the most popular choices for a good breakfast. However, they also got a lot of hate for their high cholesterol levels. There’s a long debate about how healthy eggs are or they’re actually dangerous to our health.
While a lot of people are still convinced that eggs are one of the healthiest options out there, others are scared to add them to their diet. But before you totally scratch off eggs from your grocery list, here are the nine benefits of eating a couple of eggs a day.
1. Reduces risk of cancer
National President, Poultry Association of Nigeria (PAN), Mr. Onallo Akpa said:
”Eggs may prevent breast cancer, as women who consume at least six eggs per week reduce their risk of breast cancer by 44 percent according to scientific study.”
2. Reduces risk of cardiovascular diseases
3. Improves eyesight
Egg yolks are high in lutein, a type of carotenoid that helps fight macular degeneration – which is the leading cause of legal blindness.
4. Protects brain function
Eggs contain choline that could reduce the chance of developing Alzheimer’s.
5. Slows down aging process
6. Prevents birth defects
Eggs contain 0.7 mcg. of vitamin B9 (folic acid), which is important for pregnant women to avoid birth defects.
7. Supports liver, skin, and hair
The egg yolk contains protein and sulfur which can revitalize hair and improve skin quality. Eggs also contain lecithin, which assists the liver in the detoxification process, resulting in much-improved digestion.
8. Aids weight loss
Eating eggs will make you feel full longer. They will help you eat less and that will eventually lead to weight loss.
9. Keeps bones healthy
Eggs are rich in vitamin D and calcium, two essential nutrients for having healthy bones and teeth.
