Eggs Are High in Quality Protein
Proteins are the building blocks of life and a single egg contains about 6.3 grams of high-quality protein. The main functions of proteins in the body are to build, strengthen and repair or replace things, such as tissue.
Eggs provide us with very high-quality protein that contains all nine essential amino acids in the right amounts needed by the body for optimum growth and maintenance. Some other foods contain proportionately more protein than eggs but it’s the quality of the protein in eggs that really stands out.
Eggs may also help counteract degenerative vision as you age.
Eggs are rich in the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin, both of which are believed to play a protective role in reducing the risk of certain eye diseases, including cataracts and macular degeneration. Studies show these antioxidants are better absorbed by the body from eggs than from plant sources.
Vitamin A and omega-3 fatty acids in eggs may also protect eyes from retina damage.
