Eggs provide your body with energy and vitality because they supply a complete source of protein and other nutrients. Although egg yolks contain the fat, it is still important to consume them. The yolks contain choline, which is a key component of healthy cell membranes, nerves and brain cells. They also protect against macular degeneration and cataracts because of the lutein, a carotenoid found in the egg!
