Egg Nutrients!

Eggs along with milk, form a complete full-on nutrient meal that consists of all the necessary ingredients required for a balanced diet. A large egg contains an average of 70 calories, 6 grams of protein and 5 grams of fat.

 

Protein

45% of protein provided by the egg white is superior to all other natural nutrients, as all the amino acids that are essential for our body are contained in it. 12% of a man’s and 14% of a woman’s daily nutritional needs, can be fulfilled by an egg.

Fat

A large egg contains 5 grams of fat, of which only 1.5g is saturated fat. Cholesterol ascends to 190 grams. Egg fats make up 56% of an egg’s calories.

Irons & Vitamis

Eggs are rich in minerals and vitamins such as: calcium, phosphorus, iron, sodium, potassium, vitamin A, niacin, biotin, vitamin B12, riboflavin (vitamin B2), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), folic acid (vitamin B9)etc.

Antioxidants

Antioxidants “shield” the body from unwanted harm caused by oxygen metabolism and play an important role inprotecting the body from heart disease and cancer.Powerful carotenoids (lutein and zeaxanthin) found in egg yolk provide security to the photosensitive resin .

Choline

Choline can be found mainly in eggs. According to studies, the lack of choline during pregnancy seems to hinder the normal development of the fetal brain, which can result in babies being born with reduced memory capacity, a feature that will taint them for the rest of their lives. Increased levels of choline granted to the fetus, have been proven to result in above-average memory capacity.
For several years, eggs had been called out for their high cholesterol capacity. However, based on modern scientific research, it has been proved that the cholesterol found in food has little effect on the blood’s cholesterol, thus it’s completely safe to consume up to 3 eggs daily without any sort of problems occurring. Despite that, it is better to consult your doctor in any case, since the above assessment concerns people who are healthy and relatively active in their daily lives.
