WHY EAT EGGS! NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS.







Eggs !! I love eggs,  Eggs Are Incredibly Nutritious


Eggs are among the most nutritious ,inexpensive,versatile, foods ,on the planet.




A whole egg contains all the nutrients required to turn a single cell into a baby chicken.


One of the major nutritional advantages of eggs is their protein content. Each large whole egg contains 6.3 grams of protein -- 3.6 grams from the white and 2.7 grams from the yolk. Like other animal products, eggs contain complete protein, which means that egg protein provides all the amino acids you need to survive. Your body uses these amino acids to maintain your tissues and support brain function. Each whole egg provides 20 percent of the recommended daily protein intake for women and 17 percent for men.


A single large boiled egg contains


Vitamin A: 6% of the RDA.

Folate: 5% of the RDA.

Vitamin B5: 7% of the RDA.

Vitamin B12: 9% of the RDA.

Vitamin B2: 15% of the RDA.

Phosphorus: 9% of the RDA.

Selenium: 22% of the RDA.


Eggs also contains reasonable amounts of Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Calcium and Zinc.



Cholesterol


Despite their nutritional profile, eggs do not represent a healthy diet option for everyone. Eggs contain a lot of cholesterol -- 185 milligrams for each large egg, or 62 percent of your maximum daily cholesterol intake, according to Colorado State University. Although not everyone responds poorly to dietary cholesterol, some people notice an increase in blood cholesterol levels when they eat foods that contain cholesterol. Since high blood cholesterol puts you at risk of heart disease, cholesterol "responders" should avoid eggs. However, because all of the cholesterol in an egg is found in the yolk, eating the egg white only allows you to enjoy eggs without eating cholesterol.


Prepare Eggs in a Healthy Way.


Practice healthy cooking methods when preparing your eggs. Ensure your eggs are cooked thoroughly, since raw or undercooked eggs can provide a breeding ground for harmful bacteria and foodborne illness. Limit your use of oil when cooking eggs, and pair eggs with healthy flavorings, like chopped red peppers, galic and other veggies. Limit your cholesterol by cooking egg whites. Alternatively, get the best of both worlds by using a mixture of whole eggs and egg whites to get the flavor of egg yolk while still limiting your cholesterol intake. If you have a history of high cholesterol, talk to your doctor about including eggs in your diet


Apart from health benefits ,Eggs are equally good sources for hair growth.


Benefits of Egg for Hair


Eggs are rich in vitamins A, D and E in addition to proteins, fatty acids and sulfur. These nutrients make eggs a very potent treatment for all your hair woes. Moreover, they make it a natural hair conditioner too. The health benefits that eggs might have on your hair are:


Lack of moisture is the reason why hair becomes dry. Applying egg on such hair can provide it the moisture it is lacking. The moisturization properties of eggs thus make the hair smooth and soft as if they were new.


Prevention of hair breakage and repairing the damage sustained by them is also made possible by the nutrients present in eggs.Using eggs on hair can return their natural luster and shine with the help of the fatty acids they contain.


People having hair that is hard to manage can be made a lot more manageable with the use of eggs.


The loss of hair problems are taken care of by the vitamins A and E present in eggs. Besides, egg yolk which is rich in protein makes the hair follicles as well as the roots of hair strong so that they do not fall off easily.To help speed up the growth of hair, the vitamin B12 and sulfur present in egg yolk can prove to be very useful. It can make your hair thicker and increase its volume by a considerable amount.

  12. I love eggs, I eat them about twice a week! I haven't tried making a hair masque with them though, which I want to try because I've heard, as you've mentioned here, that they're great for adding moisture and shine! Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a great week ahead!
