Eggs are a Nutritional Powerhouse

Ready to run to the store to get some eggs? Here are a few reasons why eggs are such a nutritional powerhouse! Eggs can help prevent macular degeneration in the eyes, they help prevent cataracts, they contain six grams of protein and nine essential amino acids, and they help prevent blood clots and heart attacks. Eggs contain around 300 micrograms of choline that help regulate the nervous and cardiovascular system. In one study it showed that women who consumed six eggs per week lowered their chances of breast cancer by 44 percent. [1]

Go to the store and get yourself some eggs from free-ranged chickens! They are little powerhouses of vitamins and minerals that are great addition to your healthy lifestyle.

Chronic Cough and Vitamin B12 Deficiency

If you’ve been suffering from chronic coughing and the cause is unknown, you might have a vitamin B-12 deficiency!  Most chronic coughing cases are caused by drug use, smoking, asthma, cough reflex sensitivity, and allergic rhinitis.  One study showed that out of 40 participants who had a chronic cough, 25 of them had a vitamin B-12 deficiency.  The study later showed that those with a B-12 deficiency showed “lower histamine and cough thresholds” that did improve when a B-12 supplement was added. [1]

Increase your intake of vitamin B-12!  The easiest way is to take supplements or by eating healthy animal products such as grass-fed meats and free-range eggs.
