Study suggests that eggs could be beneficial for heart health

In a four-month study led by Dr. Nina Nouhravesh at the Duke Clinical Research Institute in Durham, North Carolina, researchers found that consuming fortified eggs is safe for individuals concerned about their heart health. The study included 140 patients at high risk for cardiovascular disease, who were over the age of 50 and had previously experienced a cardiovascular event and two other cardiovascular risk factors.

The results showed that there was no adverse effect on cholesterol levels in participants 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, which may have contributed to the neutral results.

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. The study was funded by Eggland’s Best, a leading egg producer in the U.S.
