Cathe on EB Eggs
"While exercising, people need enough carbohydrates and protein for energy and muscle development. Adequate protein is especially needed for maintaining health before and after workouts. If, while exercising, people fail to take-in enough calories from carbohydrates and fat, the body will burn muscle protein for energy, thereby creating a "self-destructive" situation for the body. Eggland's Best eggs offer the body the most complete and natural source of high-quality protein, while replenishing essential amino acids in the body used during exercise. Additionally, oxidative damage, caused by free-radical production in the body as a result of exercise, can be significantly offset by Vitamin E, Omega 3 and lutein intake.
Vitamin E - found in wheat germ oil, nuts and seeds, whole grains, egg yolks, and leafy green vegetables - is an antioxidant that protects cell membranes and other fat-soluble parts of the body from damage. Eggland's Best eggs are a superb natural source of Vitamin E, with 10 times more Vitamin E than in an ordinary egg, and they are the only eggs I eat."
