Are eggs healthy, or not? Let’s talk about what would happen if eggs were your only protein source.
In six clinical studies, it was found that eggs were not associated with heart disease in healthy people. I believe that if you had to rely on eggs as your only source of protein—you would be much healthier.
Eggs are high in cholesterol but also contain lecithin, choline, and vitamin B3, which help combat cholesterol.
Eggs are the best source of protein other than breast milk. Just one egg has seven grams of high-quality protein and is packed full of nutrients. Eggs also have a complete amino acid profile, and the nutrients and amino acids have high bioavailability.
Eggs are a unique source of protein because they’re not just muscle protein—they have a lot of additional factors to support your health. They even have potential anticancer effects and immunomodulation effects.
Eggs contain important nutrients, such as:
• Vitamins A, D, E, K1, and K2
• B vitamins
• Omega-3 fatty acid
• Sphingomyelin (helps prevents plaquing in the arteries)
• Choline (helps prevent a fatty liver, supports the brain, and helps combat high cholesterol)
• Lutein and zeaxanthin (supports the eyes)
• Phospholipids (helps reduce inflammation and helps build cell membranes)
• Essential nutrients for repair, muscle building, and helping to prevent sarcopenia
Don’t just consume egg whites. Egg yolks actually have more protein than egg whites, and the yolks contain essential nutrients.
Depending on your size, age, and how much muscle you have, you may want to consume two to four whole eggs to satisfy your body’s nutrient requirements.
