Eating eggs every day keeps the doctor away
Eggs are chock full of vitamins and minerals, according to Medical News Today — and this is good for the immune system. Vitamins A and B-12, in particular, have been found to boost immune function.
Egg yolk is also a great source of vitamin D, which can both help you avoid getting sick as well as aid your recovery if you do happen to catch something. “When you’re recovering from a cold or flu and don’t have much energy, eggs are probably about the easiest and fastest food to whip together,” Frances Largeman-Roth, a registered dietitian nutritionist, explained in an article for NBC Today.
Eating eggs can also help supply you with two vital minerals for immune health: zinc, which “keeps your immune system kicking,” according to to Largeman-Roth, and selenium. Medical News Today explained that selenium is “an essential trace mineral that is important for many bodily processes, including cognitive function, a healthy immune system, and fertility in both men and women.”
