Eggs are a part of a healthy diet plan. That is a reason why kids are encouraged to eat eggs from the start. It would surprise you to know that in a lot of coronavirus quarantine facilities around the world, patients in recovery are offered eggs with their daily meals.

There's a reason why people who are sick or recovering are asked to eat eggs. From the shell to the core, they come loaded with plenty of nutrients which are good for a healing body. Eggs come packed with a lot of amino acids and antioxidants, which improve your health and keep your immune system functioning in the best way.

Each egg (85 calories) pack in 7g of muscle-building protein apart from essential core vitamins like selenium (22%) and vitamin A, B and K. They also contain another nutrient, riboflavin, Eggs come loaded with zinc, which can speed up recovery and get rid of a cold. The selenium present in eggs can also help promote good heart health, cut out bad cholesterol and keep lifestyle risks at bay.

A lot of people believe that only egg whites are healthy, and skip out on eating the yolk. Egg yolks may weigh considerably high in cholesterol but they are also rich in protein and selenium.
