This is What Just 2 EGGS PER DAY Do to Your Brain

recent exhaustive study by Harvard University’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health, determined that eggs are good for overall health. Researchers initially thought that since eggs contain high cholesterol, there is an increased risk of heart attacks, coronary heart disease, and strokes. However, the study concluded that the only associated finding between high intake of eggs and cardiovascular risk is people with type 2 diabetes. These results are consistent to the American Heart Association 2019 cholesterol advisory and previous guidance from the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee.Eggs are a rich source of vitamins B6 and B12 which are important for brain health and development. It helps reduce your risk of dementia, heart disease, and cancer. B vitamins are linked to slowing the progression of mental decline for patients with Mild Cognitive Impairment. Folic acid, found in eggs, is important for the nervous system affecting mood and cognitive function especially in older people. Researchers have found that folate deficiency in the elderly increases the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia.The antioxidant lutein gives egg yolks their bright yellow color. Additionally, it boosts eye health by providing protection against diseases. Examples include cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. More recently, researchers have found a connection between lutein and better cognition across different domains like memory, language, and learning.

The bad rap against eggs for years has been cholesterol. Despite its longstanding and misunderstood reputation, cholesterol plays a vital role in brain health. Your brain needs it to function properly. Both fish and seafood contain “good” cholesterol which is the most healthy. You can find that same cholesterol in egg yolk – so be sure to eat the whole egg!
