Why eggs should be a part of your diet ?

Complete Source of Protein

Egg protein is a complete protein and thus includes a number of amino acids such as leucine, isoleucine, valine, methionine, cysteine, lysine, tryptophan, and other essential amino acids that contribute to the repair and regeneration of muscle.

Just one egg can supply over 12 percent of the daily recommended intake of protein. The quality of egg protein is so high that the World Health Organization (WHO) uses it as a reference standard against which the protein quality of all other food is judged.

Conjugated linoleic acid

Conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA, is derived from animal sources. Chickens fed their natural diet and raised organically produce eggs with higher levels of CLA. CLA has been found to have antitumor activity at levels achievable through your diet. In other animal studies, CLA has been shown to help with regulation of glucose and to decrease the percentage of bodyfat. CLA is found in the yolk of the egg.

Heart-Healthy Cholesterol

Years ago, the egg was demonized because of its cholesterol content, which is also located in the egg yolk. However, in most circumstances, dietary cholesterol has little to no impact on blood cholesterol levels—one of the reasons cholesterol-lowering drugs are such a big business. Many studies have demonstrated that the consumption of several eggs per week has no significant impact on blood cholesterol levels, stroke, or heart disease.

Super Fats

Omega-3 fatty acids include the essential fatty acid ALA, or alpha linolenic acid, and the conditionally essential fatty acid DHA, or docosahexaenoic acid. These polyunsaturated fatty acids are critical in helping the body reduce levels of inflammation. They are also critical in the maintenance of heart and brain health.


Flax Seed For Good Heart

Flax Seed is full of fiber and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, a little sprinkling of flaxseed can go a long way for your heart. Top a bowl of oatmeal or whole-grain cereal with a smidgen of ground flaxseed for the ultimate heart-healthy breakfast.
