Eggs can be eaten in many ways – scrambled, poached, hard-boiled – you name it. But no matter how you eat it, eggs will always have great health benefits to your body.
For one thing, eggs have Vitamin D, which aids in absorbing calcium. It strengthens the bones and teeth.
Apart from that, eggs also have lots of vitamins and nutrients that are helpful for the body.
One egg contains 13 essential nutrients, nine essential amino acids, six grams of protein, lutein and zeaxanthin, choline, and of course, vitamin D.
REDUCES OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE RISK
Another advantage to eating eggs every day is that the risk of having cardiovascular disease decreases.
Most people are afraid of eating one too many eggs because of the cholesterol levels. Although, new research revealed that the phosphatides balance the cholesterol found in eggs.

Consuming eggs slow down the aging process. According to research, 87% of the women participants aging between 35 and 40 said their age spots vanished, and their skin looked lifted. As for the men, they noticed that the wrinkles around their eyes smoothened.

The study’s lead author, Elizabeth J. Johnson, Ph.D., said, "Studies indicate that lutein can help protect against diseases such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts, as well as lowering risk for some forms of cancer and heart disease.”
Lastly, eggs have also been proven to improve insulin sensitivity, which leads to a decrease in diabetes risk.
