Eating eggs often is a nice and cheap way to keep your health at a good level. Eggs are rich in nutrients, and they are very low on carbohydrates. Let’s not also forget that eggs feature quality protein and more. Researchers knew all this stuff for a long time, but they still uncover new info about egg consumption even today.

SciTechDaily speaks about new research involving the survey of over 4,700 individuals. The study found that eggs might have the potential to increase the number of metabolites that are healthy for the heart. This is great news if we care about our health, as we all know that eggs can be found in pretty much any supermarket or store on the planet.

Reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease by eating eggs

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) refers to a wide range of conditions that affect the blood vessels or the heart of an individual. In the US alone, a person dies of CVD once every 36 seconds.

The new study indicates that if we consume up to just one egg every day, the risk of cardiovascular disease might get reduced. A number of 4,778 people were assessed for the new research, and they were participants from the China Kadoorie Biobank. Three thousand four hundred one of them had to deal with cardiovascular disease, while 1,377 didn’t. The researchers took plasma samples from the participants to measure 225 metabolites using targeted nuclear magnetic resonance. Twenty-four of these metabolites were found to be associated with the levels of egg consumption of the participants.

Lang Pan, first author of the study and MSc at the Peking University’s Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics from Beijing, explained as SciTechDaily quotes:

Few studies have looked at the role that plasma cholesterol metabolism plays in the association between egg consumption and the risk of cardiovascular diseases, so we wanted to help address this gap.

The new study was published in eLife.
