Eggs Good for the Brain

Melissa Gordon | October 20 2004

Throughout native societies eggs have been promoted as a food for women during pregnancy, and now scientists have discovered one more reason this tradition has thrived world-wide. Eggs contain choline, a nutrient that boosts brain functioning and health. This nutrient has recently been proven to give infants larger brain cells. The study was published in the Journal of Neurophysiology.

Choline is a pre-curser to Acetyl-choline as well; this chemical makes you think clearer and faster. Acetyl-choline is released by nicotine during cigarette smoking, answering the question of why nicotine has recently been found to help such nerve disorders as Parkinson’s disease and schizophrenia. This is also one more reason it can be so difficult to quit smoking-brain fog.

If you are quitting smoking, are pregnant, have trouble concentrating or have a nerve disorder you should be eating a minimum of 3 eggs or egg yolks per day. Other foods that contain high yields of Choline are: nuts, milk, fish and liver.
