Cholesterol per se is not as bad as most people think it is. Taking supplements will regulate your cholesterol levels for an even healthier body today!
New research has confirmed that nuts can be an excellent tool in lowering cholesterol levels.
New research shows that a heightened sugar intake can affect your cholesterol levels negatively.
Egg yolks can be beneficial for you in a balanced diet. They contain good protein and fat along with an array of vitamins and minerals. Click here for a nutritional run-down of a single egg yolk.
The problem with too many egg yolks in your diet is due to the high fat and cholesterol levels contained within. The high fat levels result in a high calorie count which can pose a problem when trying to lose weight. Worth noting, egg yolks may not be directly responsible for increases in blood LDL cholesterol levels (ie. "bad cholesterol"). In fact, some of the latest research suggests that whole eggs may improve your blood lipid profile. Whole eggs also carry a number of health benefits, including eyesight protection, improved brain function, blood clot prevention, age-related cataract prevention and prevention against breast cancer (to name a few).
I personally think that it is of benefit to include egg yolks into your diet in moderation.
