When you swallow raw eggs every day, what happens to your body? You're not going to take Apollo Creed 15 rounds, win the rematch he promised you'd never receive, and start a boxing franchise that never seems to die, are you? However, whether you're a prizefighter, a bodybuilder, or just someone searching for an excellent source of protein, drinking raw eggs every day may provide you with some real health benefits.
Of course, even if you can get over the grossness of drinking a glass full of raw eggs, there are some potential health risks. We've all heard the warnings about eating raw cookie dough and the risks of salmonella contamination from the eggs in it. Is it reasonable to assume that eating raw eggs for a month has the same risk? Or do all of the protein and vitamins' health benefits outweigh the risk? Continue reading to find out the answers to all of your burning egg-related questions. Put that cookie dough away for the final time.
Here are the benefits of eating raw eggs:
Minerals and proteins
Eggs are a fantastic protein source. A single egg includes roughly 6 grams of protein, which your body requires to repair and replace cells. In addition, one egg yolk contains over 66 mg of phosphorus and 22 mg of calcium. Phosphorus is required for the proper functioning of each of our 37 trillion cells.
Of course, we all know how important calcium is for our bones and teeth. Selenium is a mineral found in whole eggs that are integrated into proteins to create antioxidant enzymes (selenoproteins). In addition, eggs contain trace levels of iron, zinc, and copper.
Boost your immune system's defenses.
Eggs include high levels of vitamin A and vitamin B-12, as well as other nutrients and antioxidants that contribute to a healthy immune system.
Provide you with extra energy.
Eggs are high in nutrients and make you feel satiated and energized. They contain a lot of protein and are a full source of vital amino acids.
Assist your heart.
HDL, or "good" cholesterol, is abundant in eggs. HDL cholesterol, which is high, protects your heart from LDL cholesterol, which is bad cholesterol. Because eggs are high in both good and bad cholesterol, it's vital to restrict the good to reduce the bad. Eggs also include fatty acids such as Omega-3s, which help to lower harmful cholesterol levels.
Assist your brain's performance.
Choline levels in eggs are high, which is crucial for brain function. Eggs are high in nutrients, and one egg is a good dose of choline.
