Eggs have long been a controversial subject in the health world, due to their high cholesterol content. Nevertheless, they remain one of the most nutrient-rich foods out there. Loaded with high-quality protein, whole eggs also contain B vitamins, choline, selenium, phosphorus, Vitamin A, and iron. Additionally, the antioxidants found in eggs are known to protect vision and maintain healthy eyes. While they do contain a high level of cholesterol, eating eggs is said to increase “good” HDL cholesterol in some people, which can ultimately lead to a reduction in heart disease risk.
