The Truth About Eggs & Cholesterol...

So all this time, you've been eating boring, egg-white omelets, denying yourself those rich, delicious, golden-yellow yolks??? Why?

Let me give you the skinny on eggs and why you must eat them, yolk and all!

The facts are these: one egg contains 213 grams of cholesterol, however, studies have found that even two eggs per day have no effect on cholesterol what-so-ever!

Eggs Are Now Healthier! The Secret...

Even though the consumption of two eggs per day has no effect on cholesterol, there are some eggs that are actually beneficial to our health.

Farmers are now producing "designer" eggs. These eggs are very high in omega-3 fatty acids--and everyone knows how good those are for our health. They do this by simply adding flaxseed to the chickens' diet.

"Designer" eggs are found in every supermarket in the country and they're clearly marked: High in omega-3 fatty acids, for example. These are the ones to buy!

Egg Yolks and Biotin... and More!

Biotin is a B-complex vitamin, once known as Vitamin H. It helps in sugar and fat metabolism and for that reason, it's very important to our good health.

If, for example, you suffer pain and muscle cramps after exercising or physical labor, you may have a biotin deficiency. If you suffer skin problems (because of biotin's role in fat synthesis), lack of biotin may be the culprit. The most common condition in adults is seborrheic dermatitis, and in infants, "cradle cap".

Egg yolks are heavy with biotin and are one of our most important food resources to receive this critical B-complex vitamin! So what are you waiting for?

Don't be yoked! Eat those eggs, yolk and all!


For your good health, eat the WHOLE egg!

Madam Aphrodite™ Speaks...

If you've been deluded about eggs, then you need a change of heart, let alone diet!

Eggs are a great source of protein and are low in calories. And although an egg contains 4.5 grams of fat, half of that is unsaturated. What more could you ask?

Be sure to buy "designer" eggs and then you too can benefit from the wonder of the "... incredible, edible egg!"
