Eggs-Nature’s Perfect Food

Eggs are one of the most perfect foods you can eat.  They are cheap and can be prepared in a lot of different ways.  Should I also mention that as compared to every other healthy food, eggs are also considered the best quality of protein on the planet?  3 out of 4 studies that test quality of proteins showed that protein was the highest quality beating out milk, beef, whey, and soy.  Quality of protein was decided by measuring: Protein Efficiency Rating, Biological Value, and Net Protein Utilization.


Ok now that I got that out of the way lets talk about why they are so good.  They contain all nine essential amino acids, and they are loaded with vitamins and nutrients that help your eyes, your brain, and your heart.  Yes you read that right…your heart.  They are one of the best sources of choline, which is essential for cardiovascular function, brain function, and the health of your cell membranes.  Choline is an essential part of a special phospholipid called phosphaditylcholine.  Without enough levels of phosphaditylcholine both fat and cholesterol accumulate in the liver.  So understand that, the yolk contains choline which prevents cholesterol and fat build up!  Also, choline lowers homocystine levels which is a risk factor for heart disease.  This is done through the formation of betaine.

Phosphaditylcholine is also used to treat liver disease, as it helps protect the liver from a bunch of toxic substances.

Choline is also needed for the the synthesis of acetyl choline, which is one of the main neurotransmitters in the body.  It is critical for memory and thinking and is also believed to be protective against certain types of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease.

Eggs also contain two of the most important nutrients for eye health.  The two nutrients lutein and zeaxanthin are extremely important for eye health and studies have shown that when you get these nutrients through eggs they are more bioavailable than when you get them through supplements.

Eggs are also shown to be protective against breast cancer.  In a 2005 study that was published in Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers And Prevention showed that women eating the most eggs, were least likely to get breast cancer.  Eating six eggs per week vs. two eggs per week decreased the chance of breast cancer by 44%.  It should also be noted that the other significant factor that greatly lowered breast cancer rates was fruit and vegetable intake.  The more fruits and vegetables you they consumed they lower the breast cancer rates.  Which really shouldn’t be a surprise.

Eggs also contain trace amounts of more than 15 vitamins and minerals.  It has appreciable levels of Vitamins B2, B12, and cancer fighting selenium.

Eggs are also the perfect combination for breakfast as they they contain both protein and fats, which is what you want.  They are quick to make and can be boiled for snacks or meals later in the day.

So there you have it.  Eat your eggs and eat them whole!  There is no doubt that both your health, and your physique will improve!

    Awesome love all the nutritional information. I love eggs so now I can eat them and LOVE them even more! I avoided eating them most of my life until recent years but always felt guilty because they had a bad reputation for years!
    For people who have trouble with digestion there are green eggs (shell only! ) which can be purchased locally through select producers.
    My favorite are brown eggs.

    THANKS Blaine ☺

      Thanks Anna, I am really glad you are enjoying the posts! Thanks for the tip on the green eggs, never heard of them before. And yes eggs have certainly gotten a bad rap through bad studies.

    Started followIng Blaine’s egg advise over a decade ago. Everything he says is true and it is amazing, I never get tired of eating eggs for breakfast. I only add a small amount of olive oil to the pan. LUV’EM. Not hungry until about noon.
