Eggs are a wonderful food. One large egg contains the highest quality protein and 14 key nutrients. They are one of the few foods considered to be a complete protein, because they contain all 9 essential amino acids. Amino acids help build protein, something your body really needs. Eggs provide the energy needed to start your day with only 70 calories.
The protein found in eggs is used by your body to:
- Build and repair body tissue and cells
- Grow strong hair and nails
- Build and maintain healthy muscles
- Help fight infections
- Help keep your body fluids in balance
