Japanese Quail Eggs: Health Benefits

Updated on June 18, 2013


In this article and further readings, when I mention Quail, it refers to Japanese Quail. In this article I try to explain the health benefits you get by adding quail eggs into your diet.

The medicinal use of quail eggs can be traced back to ancient China and Egypt. The Chinese as well as the Egyptians used quail eggs to treat inflammatory diseases and sexual impotence. And for a long time the therapeutic properties of quail eggs were forgotten. It was in France, in 1960’s that Dr. JC Truffier, effectively used quail eggs in the treatment of sexual impotence and allergies. Since then a lot of studies has been conducted on the therapeutic uses of quail eggs. And it has been proved that quail eggs can be used in the prevention, cure and treatment of diseases associated with age, deficiency or excess of nutrients, allergies etc.

Even though small in size compared to other eggs, the nutritional content in quail eggs is many fold greater than other poultry eggs. Quail eggs are rich in various proteins, Vitamin A, B complex and E, iron, potassium and phosphorus. A comparative study of quail eggs with chicken eggs proved that quail eggs contain 5 times more phosphorus, 7.5 times more vitamin B and 15 times more vitamin B2. That’s the reason why quail eggs are some times said to be dietetic eggs.

Let’s go through the benefits of eating quail eggs one by one

As a Remedy For Respiratory Disorders

Most of the respiratory disorders such as allergic rhinitis, bronchitis, hay fever symptoms etc. are caused by the production of excess mucus by the mucus membrane, thereby inhibiting the free flow of air through the respiratory tract. Mucus is produced due the presence of chemicals like, histamine, immunoglobulin E and free radicals in our body. Free radicals also comes into our body due to atmospheric pollution. These harmful chemicals also results in acute allergic conditions like asthma.

Quail eggs are a rich source of Vitamin A and Selenium which qualifies it as an excellent histamine suppressor and an anti-oxidant. It suppresses the activity of histamine and neutralizes the free radicals there by reducing the production of mucus by the mucus membrane. This in turn makes the functioning of the lungs and the respiratory tract smooth and efficient. More over the ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6 fatty acids is high which helps in reducing the inflammation and improves the lung performance.

Most of the inhalers and pills contains steroid and other drugs which can cause harmful side effects that can last long. These side effects include, drowsiness, weight gain etc. The good thing when taking quail eggs is that, they are 100% natural anti-inflammatory agents and you don't have to worry about harmful side effects.

As a Remedy To Digestive Tract Disorders

As you may know, one of the painful situation affecting our digestive system is the stone formation in kidney, liver and gall bladder. Stone formation occurs due to the deposition of calcium in combination with oxalates. Vitamin C is a good source of oxalates. This oxalates from Vitamin C or other sources combine with calcium. Thus calcium is not absorbed into our body, but in turn deposits as stone. The potassium in quail eggs inhibits the urinary excretion of calcium and the Vitamin B6 along with magnesium inhibits the oxalate stone formation.

Quail eggs are rich in alkaline forming anti-oxidants which make them an all natural cure for gastritis, stomach ulcers and duodenal ulcers. Taking quail eggs as part of your daily diet can get you rid of unwanted pills and unpleasant meals an that too without any side effects. The highly alkaline nature of the quail eggs neutralizes any acid related disturbances in the digestive tract. Hence by including quail eggs in our daily diet, we can have a healthy digestive system as well.

Remedy for Cancer and Heart Diseases

Quail eggs are low in carbohydrate and high in protein. They are rich in good cholesterol and less in bad cholesterol. This makes them an ideal heart diet. They also have the nutrients and vital components that provide the needed energy resistance from illness and also for faster recovery from diseases. This makes quail eggs a healthy heart diet to prevent heart disease and for lowering blood pressure. Quail eggs also improve a person’s blood lipid profile. As a food rich in folic acid, vitamin B12, iron, phosphorus, protein riboflavin and selenium, quail eggs is an excellent choice for reducing heart disease.

The number of cancer patients is increasing day by day. The increasing pollution by automotives, and uses of various chemical pesticides have contaminated our food, water and air toxic and unstable molecules called free radicals. High exposure to free radicals inside and outside our body can lead to cancer. Our cells can be protected from radical damage by taking foods rich in vitamin A and selenium. Both Vitamin A and selenium are excellent anti-oxidants and neutralizes the free radicals. Quail eggs are rich in Vitamin A and Selenium which makes it an all natural anti-oxidant.

Adding quail eggs in your diet makes your body an environment unsuitable for cancer growth. This is because of the highly alkaline property of the quail eggs. Quail eggs can relieve you from the after effects of chemotherapy and also helps in recovery following the surgery for removal of cancer growth. They helps to repair the damages tissues thereby strengthening the immune system of your body.

Sexual Potency and Anti-Ageing

One of the serious problems faced by adult males as they mature is their decrease in sexual desire. This condition can be linked with an unhealthy prostate. And a lot of people depend on various pills to get back that libido. Although these pills based on sexual stimulants can effectively boost a man’s libido, they do have their share of side effects. Most of these pills leave us with conditions such as cottonmouth, stomach pain, achiness etc. These pills can be critical for those who suffer from heart conditions. Moreover, when using such pills you need to schedule your sexual activity around a time window. Quail eggs can increase your libido without any side effects or having to schedule around a specific time. Quail eggs give you a better blood circulation and strengthen your heart muscles, which in turn boosts libido and gives you a better sexual performance. As an enriched source of proteins, phosphorus and vitamin B, D and E, quail eggs stimulates and nourish the prostate gland which is vital to man’s sexual health. Quail eggs give you all day sexual potency without having to schedule. It also increases your sexual stamina and potency naturally.

Another benefit of having quail eggs in your daily diet is Anti-Ageing. Strengthening the immune system slows down the ageing of organs. This in turn makes you look young and your body lasts longer.

Quail eggs also prevent the brain for the oxidative damage associated with the age related memory loss.

It also contributes to the smoothness and moisture content of the skin. For better result on your skin it is better to apply quail eggs directly on the skin.
