red uggs Having one egg a day ‘reduces the risk of having a stroke
Having just one egg a day could help to keep you alive for longer, researchers discovered
They evaluated the relationships between eating eggs and coronary heart disease plus stroke.
Lead researcher Dr Dominik Alexander, of the EpidStat Institute, US, said research is needed to understand the connection between egg consumption and stroke risk.
But he added: ‘Eggs do have many positive nutritional attributes, including antioxidants, which have been shown to reduce oxidative stress and inflammation.
‘They are also an excellent source of protein, which has been related to lower bloodpressure.’
One large egg boasts six grams of high quality protein and antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin, found within the egg yolk, as well as vitamins E, D, and A.
The findings lends further support to changes in the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which now include regular consumption of eggs among protein choices.
It also builds on a 2015 analysis in which dietary cholesterol was shown to have noassociation with cardiovascular diseases.
Dr Tia Rains, from the Egg Nutrition Centre, said: ‘This systematic review and meta analysis underscores prior research, showing the lack of a relationship betweeneggs and heart disease and now suggests a possible beneficial effect of eating eggs on the risk of stroke.’
The findings were published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition.
