Why a daily diet?

Eggs should be a part of your healthy diet. They also come with a long list of proven health benefits.

They raise your “good” cholesterol, which lowers bad cholesterol

There are two types of cholesterol: good and bad. Bad cholesterol is known as LDL cholesterol. This is the type of cholesterol that clogs up your arteries and increases your risk of heart disease, heart attacks, and stroke.

On the other hand, your good cholesterol is known as “HDL” cholesterol. Research shows that eating eggs can increase your HDL or good cholesterol, which can help keep your heart healthy.

Eating eggs seems to be more beneficial for your heart when you combine it with a low-carb diet.

They contain all nine essential amino acids, the building blocks of protein.

A food that contains all nine essential amino acids is known as a complete protein. Eggs are one such.

They support the growth of lean muscle tissue. Amino acids are also needed to restore and repair damaged tissues and cells in the body.

Eggs are good for your brain (and baby)

Eggs are an amazing source of choline, a micronutrient that is used to make a neurotransmitter that’s important for learning and memory. It’s also involved in the methylation cycle, which affects energy and mood, and has been shown to regulate inflammation. Finally, choline is essential for pregnant women since it’s important for fetal and infant brain development.

Eggs can help reduce anxiety

Let’s be honest: it’s a very stressful world out there. Albeit you didn’t have anxiety as a toddler, you’re likely to develop anxiety later in life. That’s the bad news.

The good news is that eggs can help reduce that anxiety! Eggs are a solid source of lysine. In some studies, lysine was helpful in reducing both acute stress and longer-term anxiety. Lysine also helps in other ways. For instance, it can lower vital signs and even improve your digestion!
