You’ve probably heard that eating cholesterol and saturated fat raises cholesterol levels in the blood, BUT did you know that more recent (and better) research doesn’t support this hypothesis.

Chris Kresser, a Functional Medicine practitioner, explains why in his article – The Diet-Heart Myth: Cholesterol and Saturated Fat Are Not the Enemy.

“Well-designed cholesterol feeding studies (where they feed volunteers 2-4 eggs a day and measure their cholesterol) show that dietary cholesterol has very little impact on blood cholesterol levels in about 75% of the population. The remaining 25% of the population are referred to as “hyper-responders”. In this group, dietary cholesterol does modestly increase both LDL (“bad cholesterol” and HDL (“good cholesterol”), but it does not affect the ratio of LDL to HDL or increase the risk of heart disease.

In other words, eating cholesterol isn’t going to give you a heart attack. You can ditch the egg-white omelettes and start eating yolks again. That’s a good thing, since all of the 13 essential nutrients eggs contain are found in the yolk. Egg yolks are an especially good source of choline, a B-vitamin that plays important roles in everything from neurotransmitter production to detoxification to maintenance of healthy cells.”

Get more choline & nutrient-rich egg yolks into your diet with this delicious Scrambled Eggs with Kale Pesto breakfast.
