Eggs, as you’re probably well aware, are among the most nutritious foods out there. Eggs are simply perfect, so much so they can bring a new life into this world. Although in this article we won’t be talking about the “chicken or egg” dilemma, there’s an interesting link between eggs and Latin, that is, the “Ab ovo” phrase which means “from the beginning, the origin, the egg”. Anyhow, as you know, this interesting creation consists of a shell, yolk and the white part. Egg white is the best source of protein because it contains all essential amino acids. We already know that foods rich in essential amino acids are extremely important for our diet because our bodies can’t create them on their own. In other words, we need to introduce them orally. Moreover, eggs will provide you with a decent amount of lutein, biotin, choline, riboflavin, vitamins D and E, folic acid and vitamin B12. Biotin is essential to metabolic processes concerning carbohydrates and fats in our bodies, so by eating eggs you’re constantly creating more energy for yourself. It’ll also do wonders for your skin, hair and nails. Iron, which is abundant in egg yolk, is highly biodegradable which makes eggs perfect for people who lack this particular mineral. The only downside of this story are large cholesterol levels. This means people who suffer from high cholesterol should keep clear of too many eggs. In their diet, that is.
