10 Health Benefits of Eggs

1. Eggs are great for the eyes. According to one study, an egg a day may prevent mascular degeneraton due to the carotenoid content, specifically lutein and zeaxanthin. Both nutrients are more readily available to our bodies from eggs than from other sources. 

2. In another study, researchers found that people who eat eggs every day lower their risk of developing cataracts, also because of the lutein and zeaxanthin in eggs. 

3. One egg contains 6 grams of high-quality protein and all 9 essential amino acids

4. According to a study by the Harvard School of Public Health, there is no significant link between egg consumption and 
heart disease. In fact, according to one study, regular consumption of eggs may help prevent blood clots, stroke, and heart attacks.

5. They are a good source of choline. One egg yolk has about 300 micrograms of choline. Choline is an important nutrient that helps regulate the brain, nervous system, and cardiovascular system. 

6. They contain the right kind of fat. One egg contains just 5 grams of fat and only 1.5 grams of that is saturated fat.

7. New research shows that, contrary to previous belief, moderate consumption of eggs does not have a negative impact on cholesterol. In fact, recent studies have shown that regular consumption of two eggs per day does not affect a person's lipid profile and may, in fact, improve it. 
Research suggests that it is saturated fat that raises cholesterol rather than dietary cholesterol. 

8. Eggs are one of the only foods that contain naturally occurring 
vitamin D

9. Eggs may prevent 
breast cancer. In one study, women who consumed at least 6 eggs per week lowered their risk of breast cancer by 44%.
