Easter Eggs and its health benefits

Healthy Easter Eggs

Easter is the around the corner and everyone is looking forward to making Easter eggs for the Easter hunt game for their kids. An egg is a symbol of the rebirth of earth in pre-Christian celebrations of spring. Early Christians believed that Easter is the symbol of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

So, people celebrate Easter Sunday as easter hunt game for the kids and give prizes for the most collected eggs in the basket. This Easter, let us collect all the benefits of eggs in our basket and win the prize of a healthy life!

Great source of protein

Protein is the building block of the body and helps in muscle growth and development. Athletes feed themselves with lots of eggs daily to help them grow their muscles and strengthen them.

Consuming eggs will help you to stride longer without cramping muscles!

Good cholesterols and fatty acids

The HDL is known as good cholesterol. It lowers the risk of heart disease. Choline present in eggs plays an important role in breaking down the amino acid homocysteine, which is linked with heart disease.

An egg is enriched with Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids reduce blood levels of triglycerides and reduce the risk of heart disease.  Also, Omega-3 fatty acids are great for our skin. Doctors suggest having eggs every day to have healthy and glowing skin.

Weight loss

Eggs are complete filling foods. They are high in protein and have satiating micronutrients.

Eggs give a feeling of fullness which ultimately reduces the calorie intake. So, have eggs every day for breakfast and get a shaped waistline!

Improves eyesight

Eggs provide nutrients that prevent health degeneration. Carotenoids have antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties which are responsible for vision health. Carotenoids are required for Vitamin A production and it assists in retinal function.

Fertilizers for your plants

Eggs are helpful for human growth and development. But do you know that eggs are also great for plants? Along with the yolk and white,  the eggs shells, too, are rich in calcium and other nutrients. So, an eggshell powder is a great alternative to artificial fertilizer like bone meal.

An eggshell if dried and powdered is a great fertilizer for the growth of plants. Sprinkle this powder on the soil, little away from the plant and you will definitely see the result!

Great for your pearly whites!

Eggs are surprisingly good for your teeth. They contain proteins, Vitamin D, K and phosphorous. Eggs help to make your teeth strong and fight a number of dental issues.

Now that you know all the health benefits of having eggs, eat them every day and grow stronger, wiser and healthier!
