The Goodness of Whole Eggs

There are so many debates for and against eggs. But at the end of the day a balanced diet is all what you need to keep you going. I chanced upon some interesting info about eggs.

Eggs along with veggies

Studies say that cooked whole eggs along with vegetables are more nutritious. They increase the carotenoid absorption. These carotenoids are powerful antioxidants and they are colorful plant pigments, which can greatly increase your immunity quotient.

16 young men ate three versions of the salad, salad with no eggs, salad with 11/2 eggs and salad with 3 scrambled whole eggs. The salad included tomatoes, shredded carrots, baby spinach, wolfberry and lettuce.

Researchers found that carotenoid absorption was three fold for those persons who ate the highest amount of eggs with salads. So, prepare some nice salad and add whole eggs for a nutrient dense healthy meal.

Eggs can reduce blood pressure

Earlier studies say that enzymes in the stomach and small intestine convert egg proteins into peptides that act in the same way as ACE inhibitors. These ACE inhibitors are prescribed by doctors to lower high blood pressure.

Eggs reduces type 2 diabetes

Researchers found that men who ate approx. 4 eggs per week had 37% lower risk of type 2 diabetes than men who ate 1 egg per week. Their blood glucose levels were also low.

Worried your kids hate the sight of eggs? Here is a creative way to make them enjoy and relish eggs. Watch this video.

Take care,
