Your inflammation levels may lower when you eat eggs every day
If you battle chronic inflammation, eating an anti-inflammatory diet can help. Eating a diet that is rich in vegetables, fish, seeds, nuts, fruits, and healthy oils can not only reduce symptoms associated with inflammation but, according to Very Well Health, can also reduce the risk of developing an inflammation-related disease. Foods that contain antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids are especially helpful in reducing inflammation.
Although eggs are not generally thought of as an antioxidant-rich food, a study in 2011 revealed that they do, indeed, contain “antioxidant properties.” When eggs are cooked, they lose about half of these properties, but they’ll still retain enough to matter. “It’s a big reduction, but it still leaves eggs equal to apples in their antioxidant value,” Jianping Wu, one of the experts behind the study and a professor at the University of Alberta’s department of agricultural food and nutritional science in Canada, told ScienceDaily. In addition to their antioxidant properties, eggs are an omega-3 fortified food, making eating eggs a good decision for those following an anti-inflammatory diet.
