Eggs are known as a "superfood" due to the many nutrients they contain that are essential to the body. Including eggs in your diet can boost your immune system and protect against numerous diseases.
According to nutritiondata.self.com, a single hard-boiled egg contains:
Vitamin A: 6% of the required daily amount (RDA)
Folate: 5% of the RDA
Vitamin B5: 7% of the RDA
Vitamin B12: 9% of the RDA
Vitamin B2: 15% of the RDA
Phosphorus: 9% of the RDA
Selenium: 22% of the RDA
Eggs also contain enough Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Calcium and Zinc for the body’s needs.
Contrary to popular belief, eggs aren’t really bad for your blood cholesterol levels. Recent studies show that the link between high cholesterol and LDL-C (bad cholesterol) depends on the individual’s bloodstream. This means that some people shouldn’t eat too many eggs, but the majority can and should.
According to heart-healthy nutritional guidelines, there is no limit for egg consumption as long as you eat pastured or Omega-3 enriched eggs, which are better sources of nutrients.
Eggs are excellent multi-vitamin supplements and we should never let our houses run out of them!
