01- Eating just 2 eggs every day has these 8 health benefits
Do you remember the advertisement where a grandfather tells his grandson, “Sunday ho ya Monday, roz khao ande” and explains him how eggs have helped him to stay healthy?
Whether they are boiled, poached or scrambled, the healthy eggs are the go-to breakfast for a lot of people. Though some people believe that the high cholesterol content in the egg yolk can be harmful to health, experts maintain that moderation is the key.
Talking about moderation, here is a list of eight health benefits of eating two whole eggs every day.
02- How eating eggs can affect cholesterol
For the uninitiated, a single egg contains around 186 milligrams (mg) of dietary cholesterol. However, according to the dietary guidelines by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, eggs do not raise cholesterol in about 70 per cent of people. The remaining 30 per cent people, who are hyper responders, can experience a moderate increase in their total and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) by consuming eggs.
Another good thing is that eating eggs also elevate the high-density-lipoprotein (HDL), the good cholesterol. People with an adequate level of HDL cholesterol have a lower risk of heart disease and other cardiovascular diseases. According to a study, eating two eggs a day for six weeks can raise the HDL by 10 per cent.
