Eggs are a common food source and have been eaten by humans across the world for thousands of years common choice for consumption is the egg of the chicken.Eggs are among the few foods that I would classify as “superfoods.”
Eggs also contain decent amounts of Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Calcium and Zinc. This is coming with 77 calories, 6 grams of protein and 5 grams of healthy fats .
Eggs also contain various other trace nutrients that are important for health. Really… eggs are pretty much the perfect food, they contain a little bit of almost every nutrient we need.
The benefits include
Lower risk of heart disease
Having a healthy immune system helps. Choline plays an important part in breaking down the amino acid called homocysteine, which is associated with the development of heart disease .
Lutein and zeaxanthin help to prevent macular degeneration , an eye condition which is the leading cause of age-related blindness. Other vitamins also promote healthy vision.
Good energy production
Eggs contain all the daily vitamins and minerals that are needed to produce energy in all the cells of the body.
A healthy immune system
Likewise, vitamin A, vitamin B12 and selenium are all key to keeping the immune system healthy.
High in Quality Protein
Proteins are the main building blocks of the human body. They’re used to make all sorts of tissues and molecules that serve both structural and functional purposes.
Getting enough protein in the diet is very important and studies show that currently recommended amounts may be too low.
Well… eggs are an excellent source of protein, with a single large egg containing 6 grams. Eggs contain all the essential amino acids in the right ratios, so our bodies are well equipped to make full use of the protein in them.
People are advised to avoid eating raw or undercooked eggs. Bacteria can enter the egg through pores in the shells.
Storage and cooking
Eggs should be avoided if their shells are cracked or if they are out-of-date. Most advisory bodies recommend that eggs are stored in the refrigerator. The USDA state that if eggs are left out at room temperature they can sweat, making it easier for bacteria to move into the egg and grow.
Eggs with cracked shells should not be consumed, unless the cracking occurs during the process of cooking.
