It comes as no surprise anymore that an eating eggs everyday has unsurpassed benefits for your health and well being. Studies have now negated the long-held theory that eggs increase cholesterol levels in the body. In fact, research has shown that it is now possible to have up to 2-3 a day.

What’s equally interesting is that a recent study revealed that eating one egg a day can actually reduce the risk of Type-2 diabetes.

Despite the controversies around eggs and their high levels of cholesterol content, eggs are a rich source of several bioactive compounds, which are beneficial for your health.The fact that eggs have been judged so far largely on the impact they have on your cholesterol levels, the other benefits they offer are only starting to surface.

The study tried to explain the inverse relationship between the intake of egg and the risk of developing Type-2 diabetes.

“Although it is too early to draw any causal conclusions, we now have some hints about certain egg-related compounds that may have a role in Type-2 diabetes development.”

“Further detailed investigations with both cell models and intervention studies in humans that use modern techniques, such as metabolomics, are needed to understand the mechanisms behind physiological effects of egg intake,” Noerman noted.
