Eggs could conceivably be classed as the first ‘superfood’. Besides being one of the best sources of protein available, eggs contain an impressive array of vitamins, minerals and omega-3. They are good for the heart, the eyes, the brain and the muscles. Eggs contain compounds that help to protect the heart and the brain, strengthen the immune system and the eyes and improve the skin. Recent studies show that eggs even contain antioxidants that help protect our cells from free radical damage. Choose free range, organic eggs for the best health benefits from this low carbohydrate food.
