Ten things that occur in your body when you eat egg!

1. Eggs increase HDLs (the good cholesterol). High-density lipoproteins, commonly referred to as the healthy cholesterol, reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. You can increase the level of HDLs in your body by regularly consuming eggs.

2. Do you know that eggs can help the eyeballs. In addition to protein, eggs contain high levels of lutein and zeaxanthin antioxidants. Studies have shown that these nutrients help build up your retina and reduce the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration.

3. I know you have no idea that eggs can help you eat less. Yes, it can! Eating eggs for breakfast can help you eat less throughout the day. The high amount of protein places eggs high on the list of satiating foods.

4. One whole egg contains 6 grams of high-quality protein and only 70 calories. Pair two eggs with a half cup of oatmeal for a low-calorie meal that's filling and balanced. Eggs gives you a boost of energy.

5. It can also improve liver function. Each egg contains a healthy dose of choline. Choline, a macronutrient, helps increase your metabolism, transports vitamins and minerals and improves liver function.

6. The cholesterol in eggs doesn't affect blood cholesterol the way you think it does. Remember that rumor that said you shouldn't eat whole eggs because they're too fatty? It's false (for most people). According to Health Line, your liver already produces cholesterol. When you eat eggs regularly, your body naturally starts producing less ... sort of.

7. They are gluten- and carb-free. If you can't have gluten or you're on a special diet for diabetes, eggs are a great way to get your protein. It should be noted, though, that some studies show that eggs might increase the risk of heart disease in people with type 2 diabetes.

8. Eggs protect your bones. Eggs have more vitamin D than ever before, and this can help protect your body from osteoporosis.

9. Eggs might reduce your risk of cancer. Choline, that same macronutrient that helps your liver function, might also reduce the risk of breast cancer in women, according to Women's Health. (Note: You'll find choline in the egg yolk, not the whites.Eatt the whole egg!)

10. Eggs contain a B-complex vitamin called biotin. This vitamin helps your body metabolize fats and carbs for energy. As an added plus, biotin can improve your hair, nails and skin!
