“A box without hinges, key or lid, yet golden treasure inside is hid.”-J.R.R Tolkien.
The ladies out there, do you ever think about what will happen to you if you start eating 3 eggs a day?
Yes, I could see somebody answering that it’s healthy and somebody is echoing it’s associated with cholesterol and weight gain.
So what is the truth?
Eggs have been getting a bad rap in the health and fitness community because they are associated with cholesterol and weight gain others say they may trigger a heart attack, but you might be missing more benefits than you realised, let’s crack the myths behind the eggs and the egg yolks and let you know what will happen if we eat 3 eggs a day.
Now I think you got a nice egg-spression!
The eggs are loaded with amazing nutrients like calories, proteins, healthy fats, folate, calcium, zinc, phosphorus Selenium vitamin B vitamin B5 vitamin B12 vitamin B2 vitamin E vitamin D vitamin K and Vitamin B6.
They all sound like multivitamins but these nutrients and vitamins can be found in an egg and they are the cheapest multivitamins found in the market rather than a vitamin tablet. When you are trying to be healthy, watch your weight and eat plenty of lean-tissue, satiating protein and eggs seem the perfect go-to.
Some people do not get carried away by this fact and are still worried by the eggs which contain an insane amount of cholesterol; firstly know that there are two types of cholesterol and some cholesterol are good prominently needed for health.
Good cholesterol and bad cholesterol:
According to medical news today, cholesterol can be found in every cell in our body. This waxy and fat-like substance plays an important role in digestion and production of Vitamin D and helps to generate steroid hormones like testosterone, oestrogen and cortisol.
The American Heart Association describes the difference between the two the cholesterol:
Lower density lipo-proteins (LDL) which is commonly known as bad cholesterol because it collects in the walls of blood vessels, increasing your chances of health problems like heart attack and stroke.
Higher density lipo-proteins (HDL) which is also known as good cholesterol because it helps to remove other forms of cholesterol from your bloodstream and lower the risk of heart disease. They didn’t completely agree that HDL is like Street Fighter type but the more HDL and less LDL is better for health.
So let’s see what kind of cholesterol the eggs contain, to your surprise, it contains neither HDL nor LDL cholesterol; they contain Omega 3 fatty acids and dietary cholesterol.
The National Heart Foundation of Australia states that Omega 3 fatty acid or good cholesterol can reduce blood pressure levels and improve blood pressure function and the delay the buildup of plaque in coronary arteries which can lower your heart rate and rhythm. And according to Healthline, the dietary cholesterol do not increase the risk of heart disease so, the eggs are pretty healthy and proven wrong about the traditional misconception of eggs.
