No, you don’t need to spend a mint to get the latest and greatest superfoods. One of them is almost certainly in your refrigerator already, in the form of a dozen eggs. Eggs are so good for you that we often refer to them as “nature’s multivitamin.”
“But wait,” you’re probably thinking, “aren’t eggs bad for me?” No. For most people who don’t have uncontrolled cholesterol levels or serious heart disease, eggs are a slam dunk nutritional win. Indeed, an egg is one of the most nutrient-dense foods in the world, containing just about every vitamin and mineral our bodies need. We’re talking protein, of course; 6 g of it. Egg yolks are a rich source of antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin. Choline is scarce as nutrients go unless you eat liver or eggs. Vitamin A and many B vitamins also fit in the shell of an egg, along with cell-preserving selenium and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which aid brain function and moderate the body’s inflammatory response. Also, eggs offer low-calorie satiety that sets us up for reduced caloric intake throughout the day.
Still worried eggs will negatively affect your cholesterol? Recent research shows that a reasonable intake of eggs – up to three per day – can decrease the “bad” LDL cholesterol and increase levels of “good” HDL cholesterol, improving heart health.
