One egg a day for a healthy heart
Until recently it was thought that eggs are not so good for human organism, but eggs have twice as much antioxidant properties then apples, say experts. Eggs are an excellent source of protein, lipids, vitamins and minerals, and contain antioxidants that help prevent cardiovascular disease and cancer. This is especially true for eggs from chickens fed with wheat and corn. Egg yolks contain two amino acids, tryptophan and tyrosine, which have excellent properties for the preservation of cells in the human body. Scientists have confirmed that the two egg yolks in their raw state have nearly twice the antioxidant properties then apples and about the same as 25 grams of cranberries. However, when the eggs are fried or boiled, antioxidant properties have been reduced by about half, and slightly more if you use microwave. While this is a great reduction of properties, two eggs still have the same antioxidant properties as well as an average size apple.
