#FitnessFirst: Top 8 health benefits of eating eggs
LAHORE -  Eggs are one of the few foods that should be classified as "superfoods." They are loaded with nutrients, some of which are rare in the modern diet. An egg eaten in the morning keeps the body energized and fulfills the needs of human bodies.

Here are some of the amazing health benefits of eggs that have been confirmed in human studies:

Strong muscles: The protein within eggs helps keep muscles working well while slowing the rate at which they are lost.

Brain healthEggs contain vitamins and minerals that are needed for the regular functioning of cells, including the brain, nervous system, memory, and metabolism.

Good energy productionEggs contain all the daily vitamins and minerals that are needed to produce energy in all the cells of the body.

A healthy immune system: Vitamin A, vitamin B-12, and selenium are key to keeping the immune system healthy.

Lower risk of heart disease: Choline plays an important part in breaking down the amino acid homocysteine, which is associated with the development of heart disease.

Eyesight: Lutein and zeaxanthin help to prevent macular degeneration, the leading cause of age-related blindness. Other vitamins also promote good vision.

Weight loss and maintenance: The high quality of protein within eggs might help keep people energized and feeling fuller for longer. Feeling full prevents snacking, which reduces overall calorie intake.

Skin benefits: Some vitamins and minerals within eggs help promote healthy skin and prevent the breakdown of body tissues. A strong immune system also contributes to a healthy look overall.
