The common misconception of eggs, is that they’re unhealthy and have a high cholesterol count. However, the egg white itself holds many nutritious values, some that you probably weren’t even aware of.
Putting a stop to the whole cholesterol debate, an egg white doesn’t contain any cholesterol at all, not even a tiny 1%. But it sure is packed full of high quality protein - it’s up there with lean meat, fish and poultry. That’s why many bodybuilders and athletes will mix in a few egg whites with their protein shakes as a refuel after a hard training session.
A single egg white contains the following:
- 16 calories
- 0% fat
- 2.3mg calcium (making your bones stronger!)
- 3.6mg magnesium
and many other beneficial attributes!
The magnesium helps to regulate blood sugar levels and blood pressure alongside the muscle and nerve system, whilst building protein, blood and DNA.
It’s eggcellent what egg whites can do for your health! ;-)
