The health benefits and uses of Quail Eggs.
1. Quail eggs come from small birds which have been bred domestically for over 4000 years. The ancient Egyptians used these as a source of protein. The birds even had their own hieroglyph in the ancient language.
2. These eggs are smaller than those from a chicken, but are more nutrient-dense and have a richer delicious flavour.
3. They contain 10% more Vitamin B12 than chicken eggs. This very important vitamin helps to build red blood cells and nerve fibre called myelin.
4. If you are trying to lose weight then eating quail eggs can help. They are an excellent source of protein and amino acids. These are the building blocks of life which provide energy, keeping you full throughout the day.
5. The essential amino acids found in quail eggs also help to build collagen which is needed for healthy skin, eyes, naeakhabaar and connective tissues.
6. In Asia, these eggs and other types are found very easily as inexpensive street food, although that can also be purchased in the US, Europe and around the world.
7. Quail eggs have a higher yolk to white ratio than chicken eggs, meaning they contain a higher concentration of nutrients packed into their small shells.
8. These are also a wonderful source of iron in its natural form. Iron found in eggs and plant-based foods is easily digested and absorbed, unlike supplements which are made from rocks.
9. Iron helps to build red blood cells and prevent anaemia. It also plays an important role in strengthening the immune system and fighting off disease.
10. Quail eggs also contain selenium an important trace mineral for the human body. Selenium performs over 25 different functions in the body such as protecting brain tissue, converting thyroid hormones, protecting the heart muscles and many more.
11. Eating these and other eggs often will supply your body with lecithin which can be used to reduce memory disorders such as dementia and Alzheimer’s. Lecithin can help to protect and repair brain tissue.
12. When eating quail eggs we recommend enjoying them soft boiled. The yolk will retain its full flavour yet without overcooking the egg and destroying some of its nutrients.
13. Eggs are one of the best food-based sources of Vitamin D in the human diet. Vitamin D helps to keep the bones and teeth strong. It is also important for keeping you feeling calm and peaceful.
14. The many nutrients in quail yolks have been shown to help prevent cough and reduce asthma by healing the throat, lungs and respiratory system.
15. We always recommend eating only organic pasture-raised eggs. These eggs have a higher quality and will hold more nutrients than batch farmed eggs.
16. Choline is a very important nutrient for cleansing and detoxifying the liver. Quail eggs contain lots of this nutrient which is grouped with the B vitamins.
17. The choline in eggs also helps in brain development, muscle movement, building nerve tissue and metabolising foods. We highly recommend that parents feed children eggs to boost their nutrition.
18. Eating quail eggs also supplies the body with lots of healthy B vitamins, especially vitamin B1. These work to calm the nervous system and make the brain work properly. B1 enhances memory, recall and mental clarity. This is why eating eggs helps people to focus when studying or learning.
19. If you suffer from a loss of libido or a low sex drive, eating quail eggs can help. All eggs contain phosphorus and other trace minerals which improve blood flow. They also produce dopamine a “happy neurohormone” in the brain will improve libido.
20. Eating eggs also helps to grow long and healthy hair, by providing the raw materials that the body needs to make strong follicles.
21. We recommend cooking these and adding to delicious salads with lots of leafy greens. Use an extra virgin olive oil salad dressing with some red wine vinegar. Nutrient-rich salads are fantastic for boosting the overall health of the body.
22. Eating rich sources of vitamins like quail eggs protects the body from free radical damage. The Vitamin A and selenium act as antioxidants to slow down the effects of ageing to the organs and skin.
23. You can make a delicious and flavoursome mayonnaise using the yolk of quail eggs. Whisk the yolks vigorously and slowly add in a little vinegar and olive oil. A little mustard makes this taste even better.
24. If you are trying to build muscle then you should be consuming more healthy proteins. Quail eggs and other birds eggs are some of the best natural sources of protein.
