“Forbidden” Breakfast Stops Strokes

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

Having a stroke isn’t just scary… even if you manage to survive one, it could change your life forever.

In just a blink of an eye, you can lose your ability to walk, speak or even live on your own.

You’ve probably heard there are plenty of ways to reduce your stroke risk — like exercising and managing your stress.

But there’s one strategy you probably haven’t heard about.

Scientists say a simple, delicious breakfast food may hold the key to making sure you never have a stroke.

The only problem? You were probably told to stop eating it years ago.

Eggs (you know, the food the mainstream health crowd loves to hate) are at the center of this groundbreaking research.

And just last week, a study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition found that eggs aren’t the heart-wrecking nutritional dangers they were once thought to be.

In fact, after scouring the health data of 308,000 people over 33 years, the researchers found just the opposite.

As it turns out, folks who eat an egg (yolk included) a day are at no increased risk for coronary heart disease.

And what the scientists found next was even more amazing…

A daily egg can reduce also your risk of having a stroke by 12 percent!

Not to mention eggs are chock-full of high-quality protein, powerful antioxidants and vitamins E, D and A. Some of these compounds help your body naturally fight inflammation and can even decrease oxidative stress that’s been linked to heart troubles.

This means adding just one of these tasty delights to your diet decreases your chances of suffering a life-changing stroke and may help you live a longer, healthier life.

But the good news gets even better — it seems like even the folks over at the USDA are catching on to how incredible eggs are. The 2015 USDA Dietary Guidelines place no limit on dietary cholesterol and even highlight eggs as an accessible, affordable and nutritious source of protein, which can also help regulate your blood sugar.

[Editor’s Note: Speaking of blood sugar…we’re looking for some advice. Do you suffer from diabetes or high blood sugar? Click here to take a short survey, and give us your input.]

So go enjoy some pasture-raised, organic eggs, and don’t forget they aren’t just a breakfast food — you can enjoy eggs at any meal.

Live well,
