The incredible edible egg

The incredible edible egg

Chicken eggs are consumed in tremendous quantities worldwide, and many nutritional authorities suggest that eggs are one of the best proteins available. The egg protein, which is about 50% of its makeup, contains all the essential amino acids to be readily used by our body. 

Most of the rest of the egg is fat, about two-thirds of it is unsaturated (the good fat.) Eggs also contain cholesterol, which has brought them under some scrutiny in recent years. Two large eggs contain about 10 grams of fat and more than 500 mg of cholesterol. However, there are over 224 dietary studies over the last 25 years showing with regular consumption of eggs, there is very little evidence of increased serum cholesterol. 

Many health benefits come from eating eggs, such as, brain health, promotes healthy thyroid function, promotes eye health and even heart health. Eggs are a good source of low-cost, high-quality protein that provides us with amino acids that we use to make our muscles, tissues, skin, immune system antibodies and a host of other compounds vital to physiologic function.

Eggs are a good source of iodine, lutein, B vitamins, choline and omega-3 fatty acids. However, free range organic chickens provide the most nutrient dense eggs on the market today. If you can, source your eggs locally from a farmer that practices organic farming with no use of antibiotics or hormones.
