Historically, many findings concluded that the cholesterol found in the yolk caused your cholesterol to increase in an unhealthy way.
However, this has since been disproved, as new studies have found that the natural cholesterol which your body produces, naturally decreases its production, when cholesterol from foods are introduced into your system.
In addition, cholesterol has a critical impact on your body’s ability to create testosterone, estrogen and cortisol. A study reported by Authority Nutrition, in which subjects consumed 1 to 3 whole eggs per day, found that 70% of people had no negative effect on cholesterol, and for the other 30% a change in LDL (bad cholesterol) occurred.
The small dense molecules were expanded, which lowered their health threat substantially. The only population that was poorly affected by daily consumption of eggs were Diabetics, in whom an increased risk of heart disease was found.
The negative connotations associated with eggs have been debunked, because the advantages to their regular consumption are really revolutionary for positive impact on one’s overall health.
Eggs provide the highest-quality protein, and a lesser known nutrient named choline, which is critical to brain functioning. As Authority Nutrition reports, 90% of the population is deficient in choline which is plentiful in eggs.
The video below discusses, the potent nutrients found in eggs: Vitamins, calcium, omega-3 fatty acids to name only a few, and explains the benefits of eggs to bones, eyes, hair and nails.
Starting your day off with eggs promotes a fuller feeling, that aids weight control by allowing you to experience less hunger throughout the day. One to two eggs per day is generally agreed upon as safe and will provide you with all the benefits discussed above.
Getting organic pastured eggs, instead of the supermarket variety, will afford you optimal amounts of the beneficial nutrients!
