dr. Ahmed Galal, Dean of Agriculture Faculty, Ain Shams University, revealed the benefits of eating eggs for humans as they contain important nutrients that affect the general health of humans, explaining that eggs have 10 important benefits that protect them. from some diseases, as well as improving his general health level. .
In a post on the social networking platform “Facebook,” Galal explained that eggs have significant benefits, the most important of which are reducing the risk of heart disease, preventing stroke, in addition to weight loss, noting that eggs are one of the few foods to be classified. As “superfoods,” they are packed with nutrients that are rare in the modern diet.
Eggs reduce the risk of heart disease
Here are 10 health benefits of eggs that have been confirmed in human studies:
1. Incredibly Nutritious Eggs are among the most nutritious foods in the world.
A whole egg contains all the nutrients needed to make a chick from a single cell.
A large boiled egg contains:
Vitamin A: 6% of the daily requirement.
Folic acid: 5% of the daily requirement.
Vitamin B5: 7% of the daily requirement.
Vitamin B12: 9% of the daily requirement.
Vitamin B2: 15% of the daily requirement.
Phosphorus: 9% of the daily requirement.
Selenium: 22% of the daily requirement.
Eggs contain choline
2- It contains high cholesterol, but does not negatively affect blood cholesterol. One egg contains 212 mg of cholesterol, which is more than half of the recommended daily allowance of 300 groups.
3- The high content of HDL cholesterol, which means high-density lipoprotein, often known as the good cholesterol.
People with higher levels of HDL tend to be less likely to have heart disease, stroke, and other health problems.
4- Contains choline, an important nutrient that most people don’t get enough of Choline is a nutrient that most people don’t know exists, yet it is a very important substance, often combined with B vitamins.
5- It is associated with a reduced risk of heart disease as low density lipoprotein cholesterol is commonly known as bad cholesterol.
Having high levels of bad LDL cholesterol is associated with an increased risk of heart disease, but many people don’t realize that LDL is divided into subtypes based on particle size: There are small, dense LDL particles and large LDL particles.
6- Contains lutein and zeaxanthin, antioxidants that have great benefits for eye health from the effects of aging, and there are many nutrients that help counter some of the degenerative processes that can affect our eyes, two of which are called lutein and called zeaxanthin, which are antioxidants Strong oxidation that builds up in the retina.
Studies show that consuming adequate amounts of these nutrients can significantly reduce the risk of developing cataracts and macular degeneration, two common eye conditions.
7- Omega-3 or pasture eggs, lower triglycerides.
The difference between different types of eggs
Eggs vary in nutritional composition depending on how the chickens are fed and raised. Eggs from pasture-raised or fed omega-3-rich chickens generally contain much more omega-3 fatty acids.
Omega-3 fatty acids lower blood levels of triglycerides, a known risk factor for heart disease.
Studies show that eating omega-3-rich eggs is a very effective way to lower blood triglycerides. In one study, eating five omega-3-enriched eggs per week for three weeks reduced triglycerides by 16 -18%.
8- High quality proteins, with all essential amino acids.
9- Reduces the risk of heart disease and can reduce the risk of stroke for many decades.
10- Fewer calories, which helps you lose weight.
Eggs rank highly on a scale called the satiety index, which measures a food’s ability to make you feel full and later reduce calorie intake, and in a study of 30 obese women, eating eggs instead of bread for breakfast increased feelings of fullness and automatically made them eat fewer calories over the next 36 hours.
