I just wanted to take a few minutes to discuss the nutritional content of chicken eggs, specifically the minerals and vitamins. A lot of people eat them, and some folks don't. Here's a quick rundown of how they are helping keep you healthy.
Previously, I shared a lecture about egg consumption and cholesterol. I would strongly encourage you to check that out, but I will summarize it for you here. Although eggs do contain cholesterol, this does not translate to increased serum cholesterol. More importantly, egg consumption does not increase your risk of atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease, heart attack or stroke.
The research is clear: eating the egg yolk is not unhealthy and it is filled with nutritious protein, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. Generally, it's unnecessary to separate the egg yolk out as you are losing nutritional content. Here is the nutrition facts label of 1 large egg, which includes the egg white and egg yolk.
Eggs have significant nutritional value. They contain alpha Linolenic acid, B vitamins, cholesterol, cobalamin, Docosahexaenoic acid, Eicosapentaenoic acid, folic acid or folate, triglycerides, lutein, carbs, protein, calories, monounsaturated fatty acid or MUFA, macromolecules, niacin, oleic acid, palmitic acid, phospholipid, polyunsaturated fatty acid or PUFA, retinol, saturated fatty acid, and trans fatty acid. Consumption is linked with a reduced risk of alzheimer's disease, anemia, asthma, atherosclerosis plaque formation, bone disease, cancer, coronary heart disease, depression, diabetes, fatigue, heart attack, memory loss, multiple sclerosis, nerve disease, parkinson's disease, reduced sleep quality , reducing cholesterol, and stroke.
