Eggs have gotten some bad press over the years for really no good reason at all. Many tout about the fat content. Others scream horror about the cholesterol contained in the yolk. And then there’s the hormones contained inside eggs simply because they come from the the unfertilized cycle of a female chicken.
The truth of the matter is, eggs are incredible, and have earned that title just by being themselves. What’s better? You can eat several of eggs a day and reap a whole carton-load of benefits — and that’s no eggs-ageration.
In fact, one large hard-boiled egg contains:
- Vitamin A: 6% of the RDA
- Folate: 5% of the RDA
- Vitamin B5: 7% of the RDA
- Vitamin B12: 9% of the RDA
- Vitamin B2: 15% of the RDA
- Phosphorus: 9% of the RDA
- Selenium: 22% of the RDA
- Eggs also contain decent amounts of vitamin D, vitamin E, vitamin K, vitamin B6, calcium and zinc
