Have you ever wondered where your coworker gets that glowing skin and hair? He or she probably eats eggs regularly. Eggs are rich in sulphur minerals and B12 vitamins, which encourage hair growth and promote healthy hair and strong nails.
Get Cracking for Heart Health
A Harvard School of Public Health study found that weekly egg consumption may help prevent both heart attack and stroke, or more specifically stop the formation of blood clots.
Yolks = Good Fats
Nutritionists who once cautioned against the consumption of egg yolks because of the fat content are reconsidering their claims. While egg yolks contain only a fraction of saturated (or bad fats = 1.5-grams); they make up for it in good fats (3.5-grams), which doesn’t promote high bad (or lipid) cholesterol.
Lower Breast Cancer Risk
You may be more likely to link eggs to ovarian health. However, regular ovule consumption was linked to decreased risk breast cancer by almost 24-percent in a study funded by the US National Institutes of Health (or NIH).
You might want to eat eggs along with those carrots if you’re concerned about eye health. It turns out that the nutrients (lutein and zeaxanthin) found in eggs help to prevent cataracts, macular degeneration, and other forms of eye deterioration.
