Egg yolk – seven extraordinary health benefits

       Egg yolks are rich in cholesterol, but a recent study shows that a regular consumption of eggs does not affect at all the blood cholesterol level, while another has stated that this aliment increases the level of good cholesterol, which protects the heart.
       This can cause confusion, but the medical community shows us that the cholesterol from the diet should not be confused with the cholesterol from the blood, which is associated with an increased risk of heart attack and stroke.
“There are bigger problems in terms of American diet, than cholesterol”, sais Drew Ramsey, psychiatrist professor at Columbia University, who studies the associations from the life style and mental health. “There are no evidences to sugest that on the top place among concerns about food choices must also be cholesterol. Everyone agrees with this: the diabetes and obesity are caused by excessive consumption of processed foods”, sais Ramsey, according to the Huffington Post.

Here are seven of the most important benefits of egg yolk consumption (or whole eggs):
egg yolk

Eyes – the egg yolk contains lutein and zeaxanthin, two carotenoids associated with a reduction in the risk of developing cataract and macular degeneration.
Heart – the regular consumption of eggs (one per day) reduces the risks of blood clots, heart attack and stroke.
Brain – Egg yolk, even though is reach in cholesterol, it brings great benefits to overall health, among them being the fact that it contains a high level of choline (vitamin B7), which contributes to the improvement of the neurological functions, to the reduction of inflamations inside the body, also contributes in brain development in utero stage (consumed by pregnant women) and to the production of serotonin and dopamine, also known as the hormone of happiness.
Breasts – the choline from yolk also helps to prevent breast cancer, according to some studies, especially if this regular consumption of eggs has started in adolescence. Other studies had established an association between egg consumption and a lower rate of breast cancer, but with a statement: the consumption of maximum two eggs per week is associated with a lower risk of breast cancer, while the consumption of seven eggs per week increases this risk.
Hair, nails, skin – eggs are rich in sulfur, an essential ingredient for absorption of B vitamin, useful for a proper functioning of liver, but also for production of collagen and keratin, which helps maintaining the health of skin, nails and hair, offering an extra shine.
Building muscle – with six grams of protein per egg, along with the contained amino acids, the eggs are a perfect choice to encourage muscle development.
Maintaining an optimal weight – several studies have shown that a regular consumption of eggs for breakfast helps to combat excess weight. People who have consumed eggs at breakfast, for 8 weeks has experienced a 61% reduction in body mass index (BMI), compared with those tho ate food with the same caloric content. The BMI is obtained by dividing the weight (in kilograms) to the square of height (in meters).
