Health Benefits of Raw Eggs


I came across a great article by Dr. John Claydon and it looks very good on explaining the great benefits of eating raw eggs. I do this and if you read on Mercola.com Dr. Mercola has some great advice regarding eating raw eggs as well as the quick testing methods for a healthy or unhealthy egg. Sick eggs only come from sick chickens. 1 in 30,000 eggs contains salmonella and the chances of you eating that many in your life are very slim. This is explained much further on those 2 websites.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

"The process of cooking eggs destroy the very goodness that our bodies so desperately need as the nature of proteins and fats is altered when exposed to heat. When cooked, the egg protein changes its chemical shape; it is often this process that can be the cause of allergies. Generally when eating raw eggs, any incidence of egg allergy will disappear.

Surprisingly, in spite of ‘bad press’ raw eggs, organic or at least from a known source of healthy free-range chickens, are an excellent health tonic. The regular consumption of raw eggs will do wonders for your overall health. Exceptionally easy to digest, raw eggs provide a wonderful boost to the immune system, and a completely balanced nutritional package. A good immune system is one of several things the body needs to overcome cancer."

I eat raw eggs by blending them into a post workout recovery smoothie as follows:

1. 1-1.5 cups of filtered water
2. Fruits are usually 1 cup of strawberries and pineapple and/or some blueberries
3. 2 tblspns of Virgin Coconut Oil. Always get Virgin as it is unrefined and promotes health.
4. Blend first the above ingredients together well and then add 4 whole organic raw eggs. I blend for no more than 2 seconds, because the egg protein is very fragile, and then drink right out of the blender pitcher.
