Egg yolks aren’t as bad as your thought! Read below why you should consume 3 egg yolks daily!
Most people are afraid of eating too many eggs because they have long been considered as a driver of heart issues. There is a general belief that the cholesterol level within egg yolks is very high and that’s why people shouldn’t consume eggs daily.
High cholesterol levels can cause many health problems and it’s very dangerous for people already suffering from heart diseases, so everyone should be concearned about it, but not so much in the case of eggs.
After several studies many people agree that the ingestion of eggs has been reported to lower, not increase blood cholesterol levels. Egg yolks contain a lot of healthy fats and essential nutrients for our bodies. In fact, they contain over 80% of the overall vitamins and minerals that can be found within the egg as a whole: iron, folate, potassium, selenium, biotin, vitamins A, B, E, D.
The scientists from the Kangwon National University recently conducted a study in which they observed similar reductions in ‘bad’ blood triglycerides and total cholesterol, as well as increases in ‘good’ high-density lipoprotein cholesterol as they were observed in the egg eating minority of human subjects in epidemiological studies.
This study indicates that eating 3 egg yolks per day does wonders for your heart and can help you prevent the accumulation of fat in both, the midsection, as well as the subjacent liver. Many nutrients in the egg yolk can actually aid in lowering cholesterol levels (especially riboflavin) and can prevent much of the cholesterol from being absorbed within the digestive tract (lecithin).
The lutein can reduce the inflammations in your body and this if very helpful for people suffering from heart diseases.
You should ask your doctor about the consumption of egg yolks and try to inform yourself more before saying that eating eggs daily can harm your body. There can be a lot of amazing benefits if you consume eggs regularly!
