Functional Protein. Eggs aren’t just a source of protein, they are a source of 9 essential amino acids (the building blocks of protein). They’re called essential amino acids because we have to get them from food. They help build and repair lean muscle mass, our calorie burner.
Choline. Another essential nutrient that the body cannot make enough of on its own. Choline helps our cells maintain their structural integrity. Strong cells decrease long-term risk of illness such as cancer.
The whole package. Fat-soluble vitamins A and D are important for red blood cell formation, nerve system function, and blood pressure regulation. But since they are fat soluble, they require fats to transport them throughout the body to do their job. The fats in the egg yolk help transport these vitamins so they are optimized.
