An Egg a Day to Keep the Eye Doctor Away

Eggs are nutritious for vision health because they contain protein, fat, vitamins, and minerals necessary for healthy eyes, including the most common eye disorders, such as cataract and glaucoma.

Previously, eggs were associated with high cholesterol, and therefore not recommended for those who were prone to heart diseases. But recently, research studies have found that eggs contain “good cholesterol” for healthy hearts, as indicated by a research study at the University of Connecticut that consuming three eggs a day showed a significant increase in the good cholesterol. Therefore, rethink the negative impact of eating too many eggs.

Egg yolks, organ meats, shellfish, and whole-fat dairy products are good sources of dietary cholesterol, with little effect on blood cholesterol that may affect heart health.

Eggs are particularly rich in lutein and zeaxanthin, which are needed by your eyes to avoid age-related degenerative eye diseases.

Egg yolks contain choline, an essential nutrient for the brain and the immune system.

Eggs from free-range chickens are particularly rich in omega-3s.

Eggs may also help weigh management (feeling fuller) and combating cancer.


Consume eggs on a daily basis, and this may keep your eye doctor away.
