In this video, we’re going to talk about how you can cook eggs for the maximum amount of antioxidant nutrients.
I’m primarily focusing on two powerful compounds called lutein and zeaxanthin. These two carotenoids are found in vegetables, egg yolk, shrimp, lobster, salmon, and avocados.
Lutein and zeaxanthin mostly accumulate in the eyes. They can help reduce the risk of macular degeneration and cataracts.
As a side note, to further reduce your risk of these issues, avoid inflammatory oils, including vegetable oils, soy oil, corn oil, cottonseed oil, and canola oil. These can cause a lot of free radical damage that destroys healthy tissue.
Lutein and zeaxanthin help the eyes by:
• Filtering out blue light
• Reducing inflammation
• lowering free radicle damage
The best way to preserve the vital nutrients in your eggs is to cook them with a runny yolk. The less you heat the yolk, the more nutrients they contain. Try not to overcook hard-boiled eggs. If you scramble your eggs, try not to cook them too much.
The problem with raw eggs is that the uncooked egg whites can deplete other nutrients like biotin. So always cook the whites, but leave the yolk runny.
Always choose pasture-raised, organic eggs.
