Something egg-citing for your heart

Most adults think that eggs have high cholesterol levels and should only be eaten twice a week. Well that’s partially true, they contain cholesterol. But a recent study in Thailand showed that the individuals eating eggs once a day showed that their High Density Lipoproteins (the good cholesterol) increased by 48% while their Low Density Lipoproteins and triglycerides didn’t budge. “We think the lecithin in egg yolks may be responsible for the rise,” says study author Korapat Mayurasakorn, MD. But before you take in dozens and dozens of eggs be sure that you have the approval of your physician.

For me, one of the most important part of our body is our heart. The brain can be dead but the heart will still pump… Heart Diseases can be avoided by healthy lifestyle and exercise. And with this new information, I am not anymore afraid to eat eggs everyday (because I want to increase weight by increasing my proteins).

Thank you Men’s Health Magazine, march 2009 edition for this information. and thank you readers for taking some of your time to read my article. God Bless you all!
