For decades, mainstream doctors told us we should avoid eggs. They warned that the cholesterol in eggs would clog our arteries, which could trigger a heart attack.
Researchers have now discovered this is nonsense.
Eggs are a rich source of bioactive compounds that have a wide range of beneficial effects on health. And it turns out that the dietary cholesterol in eggs does not clog arteries.
Now, scientists have discovered that eggs may have an important benefit for people with blood sugar issues. They prevent and treat type 2 diabetes.
Researchers at the University of Finland took blood from 239 subjects over a 19-year span. They did a detailed analysis of the samples and tracked what the subjects ate.
It turned out that people who ate at least one egg a day were more likely to stay diabetes-free than those who ate fewer. And their blood markers were healthier overall.
An Egg a Day Keeps the Doctor Away
In addition to warding off type 2 diabetes, other research shows that eggs contribute to:
- Improved heart health. Each egg contains about 7 grams of high-quality protein. Protein promotes heart health, builds muscle, and lowers blood pressure.
- Better brain function. Choline plays a key role in your brain cells communicating with each other. One large egg gives you 250 mg of this brain-boosting nutrient. That’s more than half the recommended daily intake.
- Cancer prevention. Omega-3 fatty acids prevent the growth of cancer cells. A single egg contains about 450 mg of omega-3 fatty acids, half of what we recommend you consume daily.
- Less inflammation. Eggs are high in selenium. This mineral prevents inflammation and lowers your risk of insulin resistance.
- Sharper vision. Eggs contain vitamin B12, lutein, and zeaxanthin. These nutrients protect your eyes and reduce your risk of macular degeneration by at least 25%. It’s the leading cause of blindness among seniors.
Ignore the wrongheaded warnings of conventional doctors. Eat eggs regularly—especially if your blood sugar readings are high. But choose the right kind.
To optimize the health benefits, buy organic eggs from pasture-raised, free-roaming chickens. Factory-farmed eggs can contain pesticides and other harmful chemicals.
Editor’s Note: The diabetes epidemic gets a lot of publicity. But what doctors won’t tell you is that there’s another, hidden epidemic that plagues people with blood sugar issues. It has taken thousands of lives. And it’s actually caused by drugs that are supposed to treat diabetes. To get all the details, read our monthly newsletter Independent Healing. GO HERE.
