The benefits of Egg
Eggs are a great addition to any diet as they are one of the most versatile foods in terms of health benefits and can be combined with any other food.
And according to what was published by the OMG iFACTS website, experts have identified a number of benefits that the human body reaps when eating eggs daily, which are:
Improve eye health
Experts say that eggs are more effective than carrots in terms of eye health, as the yolk is rich in lutein, a carotenoid that can help fight age-related macular degeneration, which is the leading cause of blindness among people over the age of 50.
Raise the level of good cholesterol
Elevated levels of low-density lipoprotein or “bad” LDL cholesterol can cause damage to the body, including cardiovascular disease. Whereas, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) or “good cholesterol” levels can help remove excess cholesterol by directing it to the liver to be broken down. New research has revealed that eggs are somewhat beneficial in raising good cholesterol.
Feeling full for a longer period
Many other foods may give a better feeling of satiety, but eggs come as an ideal choice because they give the body a mixture of protein and fat. Thus, making sure to eat eggs daily helps to significantly reduce the consumption of foods and snacks in the short term.
Prevention of anemia
Eggs contain a high percentage of folic acid, which is essential for the formation of red blood cells. Thus, eating eggs for people with folic acid deficiency leads to a lower risk of anemia.
Strengthening muscles and bones
The body uses proteins to generate all kinds of structural and functional molecules and tissues, so it is essential to incorporate them into the diet. One egg contains about 6 grams of protein in addition to being rich in essential amino acids that allow the body to fully utilize the amounts of protein it contains. Adequate consumption of protein helps boost muscle mass and improve bone health.
Slow down skin aging
It is believed that the amino acids found in eggs work on cell renewal and thus slow down the effect of skin aging, as the egg yolk contains collagen, which is necessary for skin renewal.
