Nutrition and Eggs – Another Food Myth Laid to Rest

0 46

Choosing to eat a healthy, nutritious, and truly natural diet is one of the best things you can do to improve the quality of your life. Once you’ve made a decision, you would think that determining the quality of the food you eat would be a fairly simple process. No, the facts about diet and eggs are another example of what I call the “food myth.”

Unfortunately, what ends up in your shopping cart, and therefore in your body, is often based on false information—information that, once disseminated by one marketing department or another, proliferates and becomes the “truth” on which we base our nutritional decisions that are so essential to our health.

Eggs are one of the healthiest foods you can eat; The story about her is also one of the best (or worst) examples of a nutrition myth that can come to mind. Unfortunately, eggs have been slandered by many who believe their consumption contributes to the cholesterol problem.

A recent study in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry several different peptides in eggs that actually act as natural ACE inhibitors (angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors, a group of drugs used primarily to treat high blood pressure and heart failure).

Many people routinely avoid eggs because of the cholesterol hype they have been linked to in recent years. The original study that put eggs on the dangerous foods list was done 50 years ago by the Cereal Institute and was done with dried egg yolk powder.

Louise Gittleman, author of Your body knows beststates: “Recent refutation of this study indicates that dried egg yolk powder in and [only] itself is toxic to blood vessels because it has been oxidized. No subsequent studies have been able to demonstrate any cholesterol or other dangers from eating eggs.”

In reality, it’s hard to say enough good things about eggs. Eggs are nature’s most perfect food – they provide better quality proteins than milk, beef, whey and soy. They contain all nine essential amino acids and are packed with vitamins and nutrients to support your eyes, brain and heart.

In addition, egg yolks contain choline, a chemical similar to the B vitamin family that is essential for heart and brain function, as well as the health of your cell membranes. Choline also protects our liver from cholesterol and fat build-up, is the precursor molecule for the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, and more.

When preparing eggs, be careful not to overcook eggs as the cooking process can damage vital nutrients. Overcooking can cause the naturally occurring cholesterol in the egg to become oxidized. Eggs are best eaten soft-boiled, poached, or sunny-side up.

Adding a raw egg to a super nutritious shake is also a great and easy way to add eggs to your diet. If the idea of ​​raw eggs bothers you, just remember that the meringue on a pie and the dressing on your favorite Caesar both contain raw eggs.

Choose organic, free-range varieties and try to buy your eggs direct from the farmer to ensure quality. In Europe and South America, eggs are stored on the counter rather than in the refrigerator. No method is right or wrong; Store them where they lose the least moisture.

Another nutritional error has been corrected. Unless you are allergic, eggs play an important role in good nutrition.
