4 benefits of egg whites and why you need to start having this superfood

Improving brain function and building muscle are some of the benefits of having egg whites on a regular basis.
 

 
 

Egg whites (eggs without yolks) are a popular option amongst youngsters who are looking to gain muscle and are working out regularly. Known as a superfood, they are known to have various health benefits. The yolks are avoided, since they contain fat and their caloric content and also lead to a rise in cholesterol levels.
 
Given below are four of the main benefits of egg whites, which is why you should have them on a regular basis.
 
1. Improving brain function
 
Egg whites contain choline, which is a macro nutrient that helps in the proper signalling of nerves and aids in the functioning of the nervous system.
 
A study which had been conducted at the Washington University found that if babies have one egg every day for a total of six months, their brain function would improve. Of course, in their case they would also have to have the yolk.
 
2. Muscle growth
 
 
Egg whites are rich in protein and hence excellent for muscle growth. Having them on a regular basis can help in strengthening muscles, warding off fatigue boosting immunity levels.
 
 

 
 

3. Obesity
 
Since they are high in their nutrition value, egg whites help fight obesity. It is a good option for obese people and as it is low in fat content and the calories make you feel fuller for a longer time.
 
4. Strengthening bones
 
Egg whites are high in calcium content and hence are good for overall bone health. Having them on a regular basis can lead to stronger bones and prevent the occurrence of osteoporosis and fractures. They also help in increasing the level of bone density.
