Eggs, as you’re probably well aware, are among the most nutritious foods in the world. Eggs are simply perfect, so much they can bring a new life into this world. Although in this article we won’t be talking about the “chicken or egg” dilemma, there’s an interesting link between eggs and Latin, that is, the phrase “Ab ovo”, which means ‘from the beginning, the origin, the egg’.
Anyhow, as you know, this interesting creation consists of a shell, yolk, and the white part. Egg white is the best source of protein because it contains all essential amino acids. We already know that foods rich in essential amino acids are extremely important for our diet because our body can’t create them on their own. In other words, we need to introduce them orally, through food or supplements.
Moreover, eggs provide you with a decent amount of lutein, biotin, choline, riboflavin, vitamins D and E, folic acid and vitamin B12. Biotin is essential to metabolic processes related to carbohydrates and fats in our bodies, so regular consummation of ggs will ensure your body the energy you need to perform physically more demanding tasks. It’ll also do wonders for your skin, hair and nails. Iron, which is abundant in egg yolk, is highly biodegradable which makes eggs perfect for people who lack this particular mineral.
The only downside of this story is – it may increase cholesterol levels if eaten too much. This means that people with high cholesterol should avoid eggs, especially fried ones. However, having self-control is important in every aspect of life, and this is particularly true when it comes to proper nutrition.
