You who love egg dishes but do not eat egg yolks for fear of cholesterol content? From now on, it's better to quit the habit.
Health experts warn that cholesterol intake causes a spike in blood cholesterol that causes clogged arteries and damages the heart's work. This substance is found in the yolks.
But there is no reason to worry about eating egg yolks. Scientific research found that eating foods containing cholesterol had no real impact on cholesterol metabolism.
That is, eating foods high in cholesterol does not mean you will necessarily develop high cholesterol. Some evidence suggests that eggs may even be beneficial for increasing levels of HDL cholesterol, a good cholesterol associated with a lower risk of heart disease.
Egg yolk contains a dynamic mixture of saturated and unsaturated fats, vitamin E, carotenoids, and zeaxanthin, which helps the health of the eyes and protects the body from inflammation.
Carotenoids should be eaten with fat in order for the body to more fully absorb the substance and eat eggs is one way. Two large eggs provide 143 calories, 13 grams of protein and nearly 10 grams of fat.
A study last year found that when people eat eggs with raw vegetable salads, their bodies absorb about 9 times carotenoids, including lutein and zeaxanthin from eggs and alpha carotene, beta carotene and lycopene from vegetables. The latest findings found absorption of vitamin E as well.
So next time, when you want to eat eggs do not throw away the yellow part yes. Similarly, as reported by Time.com.
