Study suggests that eggs could be beneficial for heart health

A new study has shown that it is safe to consume eggs, even for individuals concerned about their heart health. The study, led by Dr. Nina Nouhravesh at the Duke Clinical Research Institute in Durham, North Carolina, included 140 patients at high risk for cardiovascular disease and lasted four months. Participants were over the age of 50 and had previously experienced a cardiovascular event and two cardiovascular risk factors like high blood pressure or diabetes.

The results of the study showed that there was no adverse effect on cholesterol levels in patients who consumed 12 eggs per week compared to those who did not. Fortified eggs contain less saturated fat and additional nutrients such as vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids. The study was funded by Eggland’s Best, a leading egg producer in the U.S.

Dr. Nouhravesh stated that while the study was small, it provides reassurance that consuming fortified eggs is safe in terms of lipid effects over a four-month period, even among individuals at higher risk for cardiovascular disease. This research suggests that individuals can enjoy eggs as part of a balanced diet without negatively impacting their heart health.
