As a source of animal protein, eggs are very easy to obtain. No wonder quite a lot of people who eat eggs every day. However, with high cholesterol levels, how often we should consume daily source of this protein?
Just how much should be consumed depends on various factors, such as age, sex, body weight, up to the level of daily physical activity. Researchers from Harvard Medical School recommends the consumption of one egg per day for cholesterol levels and a healthy heart.
It is based on the U.S. dietary guidelines in 2010. Mentioned, healthy adults should consume 46 to 56 grams of protein per day. This amount can be obtained from various sources, including eggs.
In addition to protein and calcium, eggs also contain a number of vitamins and essential minerals. One large boiled eggs not only contain 78 calories, but also 6.29 grams of protein, 25 milligrams of calcium, 00:59 milligrams of iron, and 112.7 micrograms of choline. Eggs also contain 22 mg of folate, vitamin 260 IU, 44 IU vitamin D, 176 mg of lutein and zeaxanthin. Vitamin B is also present in the eggs with a small amount of some kind.
Although identical to cholesterol, but many studies refute. A report published in January 2006 entitled Current Opinion in Clinical Nutrition and Metabolic Care concluded, egg consumption does not contribute to heart disease in adults with no history of high cholesterol. Eggs also had no effect on blood cholesterol levels in 70 percent of the population.
Egg consumption was not associated with a known cause of diabetes. Research in August 2010 titled American Journal of Clinical Nutrition states, often eating eggs showed no greater risk associated with type 2 diabetes. Study followed 3,898 adults who ate one egg per month up to one egg per day for 18 years.
