Just like the Marvel Universe has several superheroes, the Health Universe has an unrecognized vigilante that should get the crown of a Superfood. It offers a buffet of nutrients to the human body. Some of these nutrients are an outcast in the modern diet and not easy to come across. This article considers the unrecognized silver lining behind the egg diet. What a single egg daily does to your body is beyond miracles. Through conclusive and scholarly human studies, the following health traits are complementary to the diet.

Nutritious Values

On a nutrition hierarchy, the eggs are amongst the top candidates. If a single egg can create a baby chicken from its single cell, you could imagine the health miracles underneath that eggshell. The included nutrients with RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance) on a single healthy large boiled egg are:

  • Selenium with 22% RDA
  • Phosphorus with 9% RDA
  • Vitamin B2 with 15% RDA
  • Vitamin B12 with 9% RDA
  • Vitamin B5 with 7% RDA
  • Folate with 5% RDA
  • Vitamin A with 6% RDA

Zinc, Calcium, Vitamin B6, Vitamin K, Vitamin E, and Vitamin D are also in decent amounts on an egg diet. The egg package also adds 5g of healthy fats, 6g of protein, and 77 calories. The various trace nutrients on an egg diet are of beneficial value to human health, characterizing it as the perfect food. Most nutrients you need to maintain a healthy body are in eggs.

High Cholesterol that Complements Blood Cholesterol

It is no hidden truth that eggs have high cholesterol levels. Moreover, the 212 mg of cholesterol on a single egg exceeds half the recommended daily cholesterol intake, which is usually 300mg. However, nutritionists point out that dietary cholesterol does not directly translate to increased blood cholesterol. The human liver does the work of producing cholesterol daily. Thus, dietary cholesterol does not cause a cholesterol imbalance in the body but only triggers the liver to produce less of its conventional produce.

However, the safety net does not apply to all individuals. 70% of people on an egg diet end up with zero cholesterol issues. The remaining 30% are hyper responders, and their bodies trigger a rise in the LDL (Low-Density Lipoprotein) cholesterol.

The safety net, moreover, does not also extend to individuals with genetic disorders. Individuals with ApoE4 gene variant and hypercholesterolemia may want to avoid or limit egg diets.

Raises HDL Cholesterol

The High-Density Lipoprotein or HDL is the what nutritionists refer to as the good cholesterol. The higher the HDL cholesterol, the lower the risk of health problems like stroke and heart diseases. An egg diet will increase HDL levels. Some studies even suggest that a 10% HDL level increase is equivalent to a six-weeks two-eggs-daily dietary plan.

Contain Choline

The alien-like sound of pronouncing Choline is due to its limited knowledge base. It exists in the same group as the B vitamins. A single egg will contribute 100g or more of Choline, which is mandatory in building cell membranes. It also produces signaling molecules for the human brain as an additional role.

Reduced Risks of Heart Diseases

As HDL takes the role of the good cholesterol, LDL is the bad cholesterol. If it grows towards high levels, then an individual is likely to suffer from the increased risks associated with heart diseases. It is no common knowledge that LDL exists in two subtypes. They are the small and dense LDL and the large LDL. The small LDL has a high affinity to heart diseases than the large LDL. Thus an egg diet will raise the LDL cholesterol to mild levels making it a large LDL and thus contributing to an improvement of the heart condition.

Omega 3

What a single egg daily does to your body depends on the egg diet quality you intake. All eggs cannot be equal. This factor depends on the environment of raising the hens, and the quality of the chicken feeds used. If the chicken feeds rich in omega-3 and pasture, then the omega-3 fatty acids will be high in the produced eggs. The omega-3 fatty acids fight off triglycerides in the bloodstream and thus crippling a factor that also contributes to heart diseases.

What a single egg daily does to your body, thus, depends on whether you have a green light from uncommon health complications and genetic disorders. Otherwise, they are nature’s perfect food. Their taste never seems to bore the tongue; they are a wildcard match for any meal, easy to prepare, and, most importantly, cheap. If you lower the price tag on health, then random diseases and health complications won’t have a place to camp.
