Eggs are a favourite addition to meals. The perfect breakfast, snack and even a welcome addition to dinner. Their versatility is an obvious benefit, but did you know how good they are for you? Here are some of the best health benefits our eggs are offering!
Eggs are a super source of protein. More than half of the protein of an egg is found in the egg white, which also includes vitamin B2, and much lower amount of fat than the yolk. They are also great sources of selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and particular minerals like zinc, iron and copper.
There is also a common misconception that eggs are a high-cholesterol food, and should be avoided, especially if you suffer from high-cholesterol. It is now known that the cholesterol found in food has a much less of an effect on our blood cholesterol.
Eggs are incredibly filling and a great addition to weight-loss programs and weight management. They are a useful source of vitamin D, which helps to protect bones and prevent osteoporosis and rickets.
