Good Friday and A Happy Easter!

Good Friday and A Happy Easter!Easter Eggs Benefits:

Easter eggs are lovely but do we know that eggs are incredibly nutritious and a great addition to diet too.

Great for fertility, healthy heart, weight loss along with many other health benefits, here are a few reasons to crack one daily

An egg a day can fulfill the following daily vitamin and mineral requirements

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 contain vital vitamins such as  of Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Calcium and Zinc.

Protein Intake

One egg gives about 6.5 g of protein. The protein component is largely found in the egg white.

Daily protein reqt  is approximately 50 gms so 3 egg whites alone can make up for roughly half of daily protein recommended intake.

One egg has as much protein as 30g cooked meat, fish or poultry.

Breast Cancer

Research shows that Choline can reduce the risk of breast cancer by 24 percent. An egg yolk contains 125.5 milligrams of choline, about 1/4th of the recommended daily intake, so just two boiled eggs can work wonders.

Women who eat 6 eggs a week have a 44% reduced risk of developing  breast cancer.

Preggers – Eggs are the best for foetus development

Choline found in the eggs helps in foetal brain development and l memory enhancement.  Choline is of extreme importance during pregnancy and lactation when the reserves may get depleted.  Going in for an IVF(In Vitro Fertilization), don’t forget your daily intake of 2 eggs a day.

Weight Loss

One Egg contains roughly 70-86 calories. Eating eggs for breakfast keeps us full at a low calorie count and leads to less snacking and subsequent weight loss when on a diet.

Many dieticians recommend atleast 6 egg whites in a week during weight loss programs

Prevents Cataract

An egg  a day may reduce your cataract risk by 20%. It may also reduce age-related lens and retinal degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in the elderly (up to a 40% decrease).

Eggs are a good source of the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthine, which play an important role in keeping the eyes healthy.  Getting enough lutein and zeaxanthine is therefore very important from childhood onwards throughout life.
