Eggs contain important nutrients for brain health.
Choline is essential for brain development during pregnancy and infancy. Unfortunately, 90% of Americans don’t get enough of this nutrient and it’s not found in high quantities in many foods.
Fortunately, eggs are an excellent source of choline. Two large eggs contain more than half of the recommended intake for pregnant women and can help them meet their needs. Lutein has long been associated with eye health but research has discovered lutein’s role in cognition as well.
Similar to how lutein accumulates in the eye, it’s also present in the brain and has been shown to play a role in cognition in older adults and academic performance in children.
