Eggs contain important nutrients for brain health

Choline is critical for brain development during pregnancy and infancy. However, more than 90% of Americans (including approximately 90% of pregnant women) don’t get enough of this essential nutrient and it’s not found in high quantities in many foods. Fortunately, eggs are an excellent source of choline. Two large eggs supply more than half of the recommended intake for pregnant women and can help them meet their needs. Lutein has long been associated with eye health but research has discovered lutein may also play an important role in cognition. There is 252mcg lutein and zeaxanthin per large egg.
