Doctors reveal: This is what happens in your body when you start eating two eggs a day
No matter what you think about eggs, let's face it, you or someone you know has a cardboard of them in the fridge.
Eating eggs is a good way to start your day. Not only because of the taste, but also because of their health benefits. Still, even the egg sworn enthusiasts can't appreciate how good they can be.
But after reading the information in this article, we're sure that they will raise their eggs intake to at least 2 a day.
What eggs contain
Apparently a lot. Eggs contain vitamin A, D and E, as well as B12, Riboflavin and Folic acid. Above all, you will find minerals like Iodine, Calcium, Zinc and Selenium. A lot, we know.
Eggs and cholesterol
Have you heard that eggs are not good for you because they contain cholesterol?
Mistake. There is definitely cholesterol in the eggs, but it's not one that is bad for you, the one that enters your blood. You don't need to worry about the cholesterol in the eggs, says nutrition expert Jennie Nyenvik of the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet.
1. Lose weight with eggs
Studies have shown that a protein-rich breakfast can help you lose weight.
According to the study, a low calorie diet, combined with a regular intake of eggs in breakfast, can help you lose 2 times faster.
Also, remember that eggs make you feel fuller for longer, which means they help lower your daily calorie intake.
2. Eggs strengthen the immune system
Considering that most people come out of the winter months - you may have sneezed and coughed in recent weeks - and now will be the perfect time to tell you that eggs strengthen your immune system.
Studies have shown that eating two eggs a day help protect against infections, viruses and various diseases.
Eggs contain 22% of the recommended daily amount of Selenium, an element known to strengthen your immune system.
3. Better memory
Have you ever heard of the amino acid Choline? It affects nerve signals that help us remember the little things every day - for example, where you left the keys, the TV remote or the wallet.
According to studies, additional Choline supplements can improve memory.
4. Wonders for your eyes
Lutein helps your eyes maintain a new vision. A new study shows chicken eggs are rich in Lutein, which is very beneficial to your eyes.
Lutein is produced naturally by the eyes, and protects against damage to the retina.

Vitamin D is not easy to get in the winter, when the sun does its best to hide. But eggs can help you get it. Vitamin D is very effective for the pH level in the teeth and it strengthens the bones in general.
Vitamin D also helps against depression.

9. Reduced risk of heart problems
Canadian researchers have found a direct link between foods with eggs and reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and various types of cancer.
The secret? The eggs have two important antioxidants: tryptophan and tyrosine.
