The Best Amount of Eggs for Your Heart
Eggs are all over the news these days.
But it’s not because of how they affect your health… it’s because of their price.
The cost of eggs has shot up 49 percent in the last year alone.
But don’t let their higher price tag turn you away from this superfood.
In fact, a recent study showed that you should eat MORE eggs than you might think!
Because when you do, it can lower your risk of the MOST common health condition in seniors (and the top killer).
It turns out, eating eggs LOWERS your risk of heart disease—as long as you’re getting enough of them.
Researchers evaluated data from the famous Framingham Heart Study. The study includes detailed health information on volunteers from 30 to 64 who were tracked for about 12 years.
Contrary to popular (misguided) opinion, eggs were not only NOT bad for your heart… they were undeniably beneficial!
Eating 5 or more eggs per week was linked to…
- improved blood sugar levels, and
- lower systolic blood pressure.
Eggs are also associated with a significantly reduced risk of developing high blood pressure in the future.
And it’s not the first time we’ve seen these kinds of results. In fact, another recent study concluded that eating one to three eggs a week was associated with a 60 percent drop in heart disease risk.
With results like these, I think the egg farmers should consider changing their slogan to “EGGS, they do a HEART good.”
High blood sugar and blood pressure are two primary risk factors for heart disease. But now we know that the chances of developing both conditions can be slashed by regularly including eggs in your diet.
Yes, the price of eggs is skyrocketing. But when it comes to your heart health, I consider it money well spent.
After all, with nearly 22 percent of adults over 65 developing coronary heart disease, it’s a small price to pay for the chance to dodge this deadly disease.
P.S. Eggs are one of nature’s perfect foods – and you should eat them every day! But to get the most bang for your (health) buck, THIS is the only kind of egg you’ll want to eat.
