Pack with Nourishing Nutrients
Eggs are packed with a variety of nutrients, from B vitamins, vitamin A, D and E, to minerals such as Zinc and Iron. Eggs also provide a good source of antioxidants such as lutein and zeaxanthin which are beneficial for eye health (among others, reducing risk of age-related macular degeneration). Choline, which is important to the brain and liver, is also found in eggs. For pregnant mothers, choline is especially important for healthy fetal growth and development.
In fact, eggs contain all the essential proteins, minerals and vitamins except vitamin C. Egg yolks are some of the few foods that naturally contain vitamin D, which helps with the absorption of nutrients in our body. Vitamin D also helps to prevent osteoporosis and arthritis by assisting in the balance of calcium in our body.
