Research into Eggs
Many studies have shown that eating eggs makes no difference to our cholesterol levels. The cholesterol we eat in our diet reduces the cholesterol we make in our liver.
In 2013, a study by researchers at the University of Conneticutt showed people on a low-carb diet, eating whole eggs, improved insulin sensitivity and heart health.
'Scores of studies have confirmed the value of eggs, which are quite possibly the world's most perfect food; the yolk is the most nutritious part.'
The whole egg contains all the essential amino acids we need to survive, plus antioxidants known to protect the eyes. They contain plenty of choline which is very important for a healthy brain and pregnancy.
Dr David Perlmutter promotes the eating of eggs. He is a board certified Neurologist and a Fellow of the American College of Nutrition and a Fellow of the American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine.
