One Large Egg

Top health benefits of eggs:

Incredibly nutritious

A whole egg contains all the nutrients required to turn a single cell into a baby chicken. A single large boiled egg contains the following:

  • Vitamin A: 6% of the RDA
  • Folate: 5% of the RDA
  • Vitamin B5: 7% of the RDA
  • Vitamin B12: 9% of the RDA
  • Vitamin B2: 15% of the RDA
  • Phosphorus: 9% of the RDA
  • Eggs also contain amounts of Vitamin D, E, K, B6, Calcium & Zinc.

High in Cholesterol

It is true that eggs are high in cholesterol, but eating eggs will not necessarily raise cholesterol levels. The liver produces large amounts of cholesterol every single day – when you increase your cholesterol intake, your liver will produce less cholesterol to even it out.

Raise HDL Cholesterol

The “good” cholesterol. People with higher levels of HDL usually have a lower risk of heart disease, stroke and other health problems.

Contain Choline

Choline is used to build cell membranes, and has a role in producing signalling molecules in the brain. A single egg contains more than 100mg of choline.

Reduced risk of Heart Disease

Egg consumption changes the pattern of LDL particles from small dense LDL (bad) to large LDL, which is linked to the reduction of heart disease.

Contain Lutein & Zeaxanthin

Powerful antioxidants that accumulate the retina of the eye.

Omega 3

Omega-3 fatty acids may reduce blood levels of triglycerides, a risk factor to heart disease.

High in Quality Protein

Proteins are the main building blocks of the human body. Eating enough protein can assist with weight loss, increase muscle mass, lower blood pressure and optimize bone health.

Eggs contain biotin

Biotin is an important nutrient for healthy hair, skin and nails as well as insulin production.
