Eggs in the daily human diet – the guarantee of health of the heart and blood vessels.
Eating at least one egg a day reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease. To such conclusion the British scientists on the basis of the results of the study, which involved about half a million people.
Eggs are one of the most saturated on the content of nutrients of food. They contain lots of protein, vitamins A, D, B and B12, lutein and zeaxanthin which promote vision, informs Rus.Media.
Abuse the eggs is not necessary, as any other food. They have a lot of protein and its excess in the body causes extra strain on the kidneys.
British Foundation heart health in 2007, recommended to eat no more than 3 eggs a week. However, the Fund refused this recommendation in connection with new research about the effects of cholesterol on the body. Today, scientists do not name the exact number of eggs you can eat per day without harm to health, but this figure is certainly more than three eggs a day.
But what about the cholesterol
Egg yolk does contain a lot of cholesterol, but on its level in our body is influenced by saturated fats, not eggs. Cholesterol in food and blood are two different things.
The cholesterol we get from food can be both harmful and useful. It all depends on how you cook the eggs. If you eat boiled or steam omelets, obtained from yolk cholesterol will become useful, and if you fry in butter, and even bacon is bad.
