Eggsponential Nutrition Potential

Imagine eating eggs as part of a heart healthy diet. The idea might not seem so far-fetched after hearing about new research published in the Journal of Agriculture & Food Chemistry and Nutrition Bulletin. The first suggests that boiled and fried eggs may contribute to cardiovascular health by reducing blood pressure. The other study was a review of evidence that resulted in a debunking of the egg cholesterol myth.

The Bigger Picture: Whether follow up research backs these findings or not, eggs are considered the 'gold standard' source of protein because they're packed with amino acids including all 8 essential amino acids and are very nutrient dense. A single extra large egg contains 7 grams of protein, 5 grams of fat, just 1 gram of carbohydrates and 80 calories. They should have a place in any active person's diet.

actually egg albumin protein has been shown to be a good protein source. especially with it's high amino content. it's even recomended by chemotherapy and renal patients as a good lean protein.

oh! also there was a recent study in which adults (60 years old) who had lower levels of B-12 had significantly more brain atrophy than those with high or normal levels. the natural remedy...EGGS and Tuna. sounds worth it to me
