Consuming eggs daily

Eggs have a bad reputation due to their linkage with cholesterol. A large egg has about 185 mg of cholesterol, while the daily limit as prescribed by the American Heart Association is 300 mg per day. So, is cholesterol bad? No, cholesterol plays a vital function in the body which is helping in the production of hormones like estrogen, cortisol, and testosterone. There is an assumption that the more cholesterol you intake from food, the cholesterol in your blood increases. Though research has shown that the cholesterol you eat has little impact on its presence in the blood. Our body makes cholesterol between 1 and 2 grams. It is, in fact, around five times more than the cholesterol present in an egg. When you eat more cholesterol from food, your body reduces its production and vice-versa.

Cholesterol is crucial for the body and is a requirement for the growth of infants and adults. There has been an assumption that eating egg yolks will lead to increased chances of heart diseases. Even though this has been backed by research, there are still a lot of misconceptions. Unless you suffer from a medical condition and are advised to reduce cholesterol, you can enjoy eating eggs every day. You have various options to choose from at Ellementry that offer egg cups in brass and ceramic. Both are eco-friendly and easy to use and maintain.

So, order these egg cups from Ellementry to kickstart your day on a healthy note.
