Did you know that eggs are superfoods? Yes!

They contain plenty of nutrients, and some of these nutrients aren’t available in the modern diet.

This article will discuss why you should eat eggs every day.

1. Eggs contain a whole lot of nutrients

Eggs are highly nutritious. They’re among the most nutritious food on earth.

One whole egg is enriched with all the nutrients needed to create a baby chicken from a single cell.

Here’s a breakdown of the nutrients that are contained in one large boiled egg (1):

· 6% of the RDA of vitamin A

· 7% of the RDA of vitamin B5

· 5% of the RDA of folate

· 9% of the RDA of phosphorus

· 9% of the RDA of vitamin B12

· 22% of the RDA of selenium

Eggs are also enriched with selenium, vitamin D, E, K, B6, zinc, and calcium. There are also 77 calories, 5 grams of healthy fats, and 6 grams of protein.

There are also plenty of trace nutrients in eggs that help boost your health. And so, without a doubt, eggs are just the perfect food for everyone. You’ll get a little bit of every nutrient that you need in it.

Omega-3 enriched eggs or pastured eggs are the best options. They contain high amounts of omega-3 fat and are also rich in vitamin A and E (2, 3).

2. Eggs are high in cholesterol but do not affect your cholesterol level

Yes, eggs are high in cholesterol.

One egg contains 212mg, which is more than half of the recommended daily intake. Recommended daily intake of the egg is 300 mg.

But it is important to note that having cholesterol in your diet doesn’t necessarily raise your blood cholesterol level (4, 5).

You see, your liver produces substantial amounts of cholesterol daily. Therefore, when you up to your dietary cholesterol intake, your liver will reduce the amount it makes. This evens out total cholesterol level (6, 7).
