Vitamin D helps your Immune System Resist Viruses. Eggland’s Best has 6 times more vitamin D than ordinary eggs!

As the coronavirus situation intensifies, you might be wondering: how can I keep myself and my family healthy? While there are no supplements that can protect you entirely, what you can do is to work to ensure your immune system is functioning optimally -through your diet! Eggs are among the foods experts are recommending for strengthening immunity, principally for their content of vitamin D.

EB eggs have SIX times more Vitamin D when compared to ordinary eggs. Why is this important?

Vitamin D helps to regulate the production of a protein that works to selectively kill infectious agents in the body. It also alters the number and activity level of white blood cells knowns as T 2 killer lymphocytes. These bad boys also help to reduce the spread of bad bacteria and viruses! #winning

Other nutrients that are a key part of Eggland’s Best eggs that are also reported to enhance immunity are: vitamins B2, B5, B12, E, folate, selenium, lutein and omega-3’s.

We put together a few recipes that require minimal ingredients, and will help you to pack in that needed nutrition!
