Benefits for Eye Health
The antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin are very important for eye health and can help prevent macular degeneration and cataracts. Eggs are high in both of them.
Pastured Eggs Lower Triglycerides
Omega-3 enriched and pastured eggs may contain significant amounts of omega-3 fatty acids. Eating these types of eggs is an effective way to reduce blood triglycerides.
High in Quality Protein
Eggs are fairly high in quality animal protein and contain all the essential amino acids that humans need.
May Reduce the Risk of Stroke
Many studies have looked at egg intake and the risk of heart disease and found no association. However, some studies have found an increased risk in people with type 2 diabetes.
