For Your Eyes
Research has shown that two nutrients (Lutein and Zaaxanthin), that give the egg yolk its bright color, may potentially help protect our eyes from damage as we age. Lutein and Zaaxanthin are two newly recognized nutrients that have put eggs in the "functional foods" category. A functional food is one that provides health benefits beyond its basic nutrient content. These nutrients are members of a family of nutrients known as carotenoids and are found in green vegetables and egg yolks .
