Eggs are one of the most beneficial foods and are loaded with important nutrients including high quality protein, vitamins, minerals, good fats and antioxidants.

Numerous studies show that eggs are a healthy food for the heart, so a recent study suggests that eating one egg a day may help reduce the risk of heart disease.

A Chinese study published in eLife revealed that moderate consumption of eggs increases the level of heart-healthy metabolism in the blood.

Although eggs contain a variety of essential nutrients, they are a rich source of dietary cholesterol. Is this point often the subject of debate among researchers as to whether egg intake is good or bad for the heart?

In this regard, a team of researchers from Peking University in China began to study the relationship between egg consumption and the risk of heart disease and the role of cholesterol metabolism in plasma.

Analyzes show that participants who eat moderate amounts of eggs have high levels of protein in their blood, also known as protein A1, also known as “good” lipid protein.

These individuals had very large HDL particles in their blood, which helps to remove fat from the blood vessels, thus preventing blockages that can lead to heart attack and stroke.

In addition, the researchers identified 14 metabolites associated with heart disease, and participants who ate fewer eggs had lower levels of beneficial metabolites and higher levels of harmful metabolites compared to those who ate eggs regularly.

Based on their findings, the team concluded that eating a moderate amount of eggs (up to one egg a day) can help protect against heart disease.

Earlier, a study published in the 2018 Journal of the Heart found that adults who ate eggs daily in China (approximately one egg) had a significantly lower risk of heart disease and stroke than those who ate less.
