Incredible Edible Egg – Weight Loss, Muscle Building, Brain, And Health Food

Aside from being an easy and relatively inexpensive source of protein, eggs have lots of positive nutrients that make them essential to a healthy, whole food based diet.

Did you know?

Eggs contain twice as much choline as a normal serving of most any other food. Choline is a super nutrient for the brain (helps prevent mental decline). But guess what? Even though eggs are a (healthy) source of fat… Choline helps the body to metabolize fat and helps remove fat from the liver. So, eggs are a great weight loss food. Two to three per day is not a problem.

Eggs are also in the top foods containing selenium which is a mineral known to help boost testosterone (muscle builder) and improve thyroid function. Selenium is also important for a healthy immune system. Selenium may help prevent cancer.

Egg yolks are a top source for true vitamin A (retinol) which improves eyesight and immune function. Retinol is important for skin health.

Eggs are one of the few food sources of vitamin D (particularly if the hens have access to daily sunlight). Vitamin D has enormous health benefits, including bone health, hormone health, cellular health, brain health, and much more.

Egg yolks contain vitamin K2 which is an important, but often overlooked, vitamin for both bone health and heart health. Vitamin K2 also helps protect brain health.

Eggs are also a good source of iron. Iron is important to many metabolic process and can prevent anemia and hair loss and thinning hair in women. Iron is important to normal thyroid function. Iron deficiency is associated with obesity and postpartum depression. *For most people, iron should be obtained via food rather than supplements.

As you can read, eggs are nutrient dense. Most of the nutrients are in the yolk, so be sure to always eat the yolk.

An egg and spinach omelet is a great way to get in two of the foods you should eat regularly, but of course there are plenty of other ways to eat eggs. *See recipes on this website.
