Sexual Health Benefits of Eggs
The egg is the ultimate fertility symbol among almost every ancient nation since time began. It's believed that the egg contains the ultimate gift of virility straight from the Gods. They symbolize rebirth, long life and even immortality. It makes sense that it's considered a powerful natural aphrodisiac as well.
In Iran, brides and grooms exchange eggs. In seventeeth-century France, a bride broke an egg when she first entered her new home. In Egypt eggs were hung in the temples to encourage fertility. In the Chinese/Indian border area, if a woman gave an egg to a man it was considered a marriage proposal. Colored eggs were considered especially powerful and they were tossed into the laps of women to help assure pregnancy. Everywhere around the world, eggs have been associated with birth and renewal.
Eggs are one of the earliest known food staples. Jungle fowl were domesticated in India by 3200 B.C.E. Record from China and Egypt show that fowl were domesticated and laying eggs for human consumption around 1400 B.C.E., and there is archaeological evidence for egg consumption dating back to the Neolithic age. One egg has 13 essential nutrients in varying amounts, including high-quality protein, choline, foliate, iron, calcium and zinc, all for only 75 calories.
Along with improving sexual health, eggs also play a role in weight management, muscle strength, healthy pregnancy, brain function, eye health and much more. They are also the perfect mix of amino acids needed in building tissues. The B vitamins in an egg will help balance stress. The zinc in the egg also is beneficial to blood flow and is just one of the reasons eggs are considered a great food to enhance sexual health.
Chicken eggs are obviously the most popular and quail eggs are used quite often as well. They are used in numerous recipes and eaten on their own by being broiled, poached, baked, boiled and scrambled. Caviar is also an egg and has the same benefits. They are a true delicacy and create a sensual experience on their own with how the juicy delights pop open in your mouth.
