Could be eating an egg a day keeps the doctor away as well?

Most of us are aware that eggs are a notable derivation of dietary cholesterol. At the same time, they are also loaded with high-quality protein. It also contains several vitamins along with bioactive substances like carotenoids and phospholipids.

Based on the previous studies, there is no significance between eggs consumption and its effect on health, particularly with the stroke or coronary heart disease. However, according to the latest research of the Peking University Health Science Center, there really is an association between eating eggs and cardiovascular diseases.

The university researchers Liming Li and Canqing Yu together with their co-authors used information from the China Kadoorie Biobank study. It is a current potential study of 512,891 adults ranging from 30 to 79 years old. They came from 10 geographically varied survey locations from five urban and five rural areas throughout China.

At the beginning of the research, 13.1% of the group informed of everyday consumption while 9.1% admitted of never or occasional consumption. The evaluation of the results demonstrated that people who eat eggs regularly developed lower risks of cardiovascular diseases.

“The study finds that there is an association between moderate level of egg consumption (up to 1 egg/day) and a lower cardiac event rate. Our findings contribute scientific evidence to the dietary guidelines with regard to egg consumption for the healthy Chinese adult,” scientists said.

The researchers emphasized that although Science displays that cholesterol in eggs could heighten levels of “unhealthy” LDL cholesterol. But it could at the same time raise amount of heart-protective HDL cholesterol. Eating eggs on a daily basis could enhance its capability to wipe out bad cholesterol. The protein in eggs helps lessen blood sugar and make people eat less which is a good way to manage weight.
