I love eggs and usually eat one or two organic eggs each morning. The following article describes how healthy the incredible egg is and personally, I believe eggs provide excellent brain power, they keep me full until lunch and my skin free of upsets.

I don't know about you, but I always have eggs in the house. I eat them hard-boiled (alone for a snack or chopped up in a salad for lunch), scrambled for breakfast, or in a frittata with veggies for dinner. Eggs are easy to make, affordable, and very nutritious, but in the past few years, they've gotten an undeserved bad rap due to their high cholesterol and saturated fat content.

The truth is, dietary cholesterol doesn't have as much influence on elevating blood cholesterol as you think. In fact we only absorb about half of the cholesterol we get through our diet. The real culprit for elevating your cholesterol is saturated and trans fat. And while one whole egg contains about 240 mg of cholesterol and 8 percent of your daily allowance for saturated fat, the [Link Removed] says you can eat up to four egg yolks per week. In my practice I tell patients they can use egg whites as their source of protein for all meals if they want.

Eggs have a lot of surprising functions:

They can boost your memory

Egg yolks are rich in choline, an essential nutrient that acts as a precursor for acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter involved in many functions like memory and muscle control.

They can help you see better  

Lutein, a carotenoid found in eggs, is thought to prevent oxidative damage to the eye and reduce age-related eye disease. Egg yolks also contain vitamin A, which in adequate amounts, helps prevent night blindness, regulates the immune system, and prevents mutations during embryonic development.

They make your bones stronger  

Egg yolks contain some vitamin D, which aids in calcium absorption and helps prevent osteoporosis.

They can help you get a leaner, stronger frame  

One large egg white has about half of all the protein in an egg — 3.5 grams — for just 20 calories and 0 grams fat. It is the ultimate source of high biological value lean protein — the kind that keeps us full, helps grow healthy tissue, and repairs muscles after exercise. It is also a good source of riboflavin, a B-vitamin used in carbohydrate and fat metabolism.

They're the best beauty secret  

Since eggs contain all the amino acids that are needed to build keratins, a group of tough, fibrous proteins that form the structural framework of certain cells, they strengthen hair, skin, and nails.
