Eggs are full of high-quality protein and omega-3s from hens eating a diet rich in omega-3s. An excellent source of vitamin B12 (riboflavin), B2, B5 and D. One boiled egg contains more than 20% of the daily recommended amount of tryptophan. Carbohydrates crucial for converting tryptophan into serotonin protein are also an important part of the process.
A balanced diet that includes high-quality lean protein (found in eggs and healthy carbs) helps to stabilise blood sugar and prevent emotional highs and lows. And, vitamin B12 plays a significant role in the production of energy helping alleviate memory problems and symptoms of depression.
