Most of us love eggs. Eggs are a key ingredient in the kitchen and in our diets. And this is because of the nutritional value they add to our bodies. Plus eggs are very easy to prepare. So, how often do you eat eggs? And whenever you eat them, how many do you eat per serving?
Most of us eat at least one egg daily. But have you ever thought of eating 2 eggs daily? I know it sounds like overkill, but if you eat one egg and enjoy its benefits, imagine the benefits you will enjoy eating two eggs! I am talking about benefits like:
1. Helping you shed weight
Are you still trying to get rid of that stubborn belly fat? Well, I got an answer for you! Try eating 2 eggs daily, and within no time, you will start dropping those pounds. This is because eggs are low in calories, and what better way to lose weight than to curb the intake of calories?
Plus, eggs are rich in protein, which helps in weight loss because it is extremely filling. Especially when you eat them in the morning before you start your day, it could lead to a reduction in your caloric intake throughout the day. Your body also needs a high protein diet for metabolism to take place effectively. Well, eggs are the perfect answer to that.
2. Promoting healthy skin, hair, and nails
Eggs are a rich source of B vitamins including, vitamin B12, B5, biotin, and selenium. To maintain your hair, skin, and nails, you need all these. What they do is that they nourish your body cells, promote skin elasticity, and reverse the damage caused by free radicals.
Eggs deliver amino acids that your body needs to build protein. Well, guess what? Our hair and nails are made from a protein called keratin. So the amino acids help improve the health of our hair and nails. Additionally, eggs contain biotin, which is also a key nutrient when it comes to maintaining healthy hair and nails.
3. Slowing down the aging process
Getting enough protein is very vital in maintaining muscle mass as we age. And as you know, eggs are a rich source of protein.
4. Improving eyesight
Eggs have these two antioxidants called; lutein and zeaxanthin. They also have omega 3 fatty acids. Now, these two antioxidants are also found in the macular region of the eye. The three ingredients mentioned play an important role in maintaining your eye health. Lutein and zeaxanthin help to protect against retinal degeneration as we grow old.
5. Reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases
Eating eggs inhibits your body's own cholesterol production. I’m talking about the bad cholesterol in your body. Eggs help to elevate the high-density lipoprotein (HDL), which is good cholesterol for your body.
People with an adequate level of HDL cholesterol have a lower risk of heart disease and other cardiovascular illnesses. In addition, eggs contain omega 3 acids which reduce triglyceride levels, which in turn also reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
Those are some benefits of eating 2 eggs daily. Do you know any other benefits? Feel free to share your thoughts below, like, share, and follow my page for more interesting tips.
