Eggs are so popular, poached eggs, scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, marinated eggs For many years, these questions have been heard every day: “can I eat eggs every day?” “How many eggs can we eat?”
in the discussion of cholesterol, eggs are one of the victims, because an egg contains 220 mg of cholesterol. Eating more than 300 mg of cholesterol a day raises the risk of heart disease. So you can only eat three eggs a week at most. Eating more is a joke about your health.
eggs are more than cholesterol. Eggs are nutritional bombs with the highest quality of protein, a large number of micronutrients such as magnesium, potassium, calcium, copper, iron, manganese, zinc, iodine and fluorine, choline, omega-3 fat, and a large number of vitamin B groups, including vitamin B12, vitamin A, e and K, and antioxidants such as lutein.
do all the nutrients in eggs have no nutritional value, even harmful? Looking at the animal world, we can see that an egg can hatch a complete life, which clearly indicates that the egg has more value, because researchers should claim back its due reputation for the egg.
cholesterol has been haunted by negative news for decades. It’s time to stop spreading rumors because the myth that cholesterol is a nutritional medicine bomb has been defused. As the core building material of cell membrane, cholesterol is the substance we need urgently.
because cholesterol is indispensable to human health, nature allows us not to rely on food to get cholesterol. Only a small part of cholesterol is ingested through food, and 90% of it can be synthesized by itself in the liver.
even if we eat pure plant-based, cholesterol free foods, the human body will produce the amount of cholesterol we need. Most people are born with the function of regulating cholesterol, which works perfectly. Cholesterol in food has little to do with cholesterol in the blood. Most people can enjoy eggs, or other foods containing cholesterol.
but there is a principle question: should we reduce the high cholesterol in the blood at all costs? For decades, there has been a brief distinction between “bad” LDL and “good” HDL.
this simple classification is out of date because further observation is required for what used to be called ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol and ‘good’ HDL cholesterol. Newer studies have shown that, for example, having a high HDL value is not necessarily associated with a low risk of cardiovascular disease, nor does it reduce the risk of atherosclerosis. And bad cholesterol has two different sides.
the ideal value is 200 mg of total cholesterol per deciliter of blood, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol should be below 160 mg / dl, and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol should be above 40 mg / dl.
advanced preventive medicine is not willing to rely solely on laboratory beautified cholesterol values. Because we have already understood that it is meaningless to hit cholesterol values at any cost. We must have an overall observation of everyone’s risk, family history, exercise habits, internal stress and diet. High values alone are not fatal.
the study found that the amount of eggs consumed had no effect on the risk of cardiovascular disease, whether it was eating eggs or eating sun eggs until full. But a strange trend has been found in women: the more eggs you eat, the lower the risk of cardiovascular disease. What a surprise!
excess cholesterol in the human body can be easily eliminated through the gut. Soluble dietary fiber, such as apple pectin, or 1-2 tablespoons of oat bran a day, is recommended. Dietary fiber is like a vacuum cleaner to deal with excess cholesterol particles.
in addition, dietary fiber can also promote intestinal peristalsis and inhibit cholesterol reabsorption. Eat more salads, green leafy vegetables and oat bran containing a large amount of dietary fiber. Even if you eat high cholesterol food, you don’t have to worry about high cholesterol.
phytosterol is the counterpart of cholesterol in plants in animal food. Phytosterol is the natural component of vegetable oil and has the effect of reducing cholesterol naturally, because these substances have similar structure. In particular, oil extracted from the germ, such as wheat germ oil, is rich in phytosterols.
