Eggs Are High In Nutrients


The most notable nutrients in eggs include immune-enhancing Vitamin A and bone-building Vitamin D, plus the well-absorbed form of iron (heme, compared to non-heme which is less well-absorbed). Eggs now contain 41 IU of vitamin D, which is an increase of 64 percent from 2002. Eggs are one of the few foods that are naturally a good source (or greater than 10 percent of your daily recommended goal) of vitamin D.

    Eggs are a great source of nutrition. They contain lots of Biotin and as you have mentioned they are a great source of Vitamin D. In our home we especially enjoy cage free, hormone free, and most importantly eggs that come from happy chickens that are fed a diet that is as close to as natural that they (the chickens) would find in the wild.

    Speaking of Vitamin D and how essential it is to all of us, you might like this video of Dr. Oz on Good Morning America, explaining how truly important it is in our diet.
