Eggs improve skin complexion and hair
You can’t expect that your hair and skin will look great if you aren’t healthy. Eggs contain vitamins B2, B5, and B12. These B vitamins in eggs strengthen your hair, skin and eyes. These improve the function of your liver and brain, too.

Improve vision
Egg yolks contain lutein and zeaxanthin. This reduces the risk of age-related macular degeneration and cataracts, the two major reasons for blindness and vision impairment. According to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition,

regular consumption of egg yolks increases zeaxanthin levels by 114-142%. Lutein levels are increased by 28-50%.
Lose weight
If you’re trying to lose weight, eggs are the real deal for you. Eggs can help you melt fat and lose excess pounds.

An eight-week study showed people who eat eggs for breakfast lose 65% more weight than these who don’t. You will also lose 16% more body fat, reduce 61% of BMI, and 34% of your waist circumference.\
Reduce stress and anxiety
We already wrote about the nine amino acids found in eggs.

These amino acids can also affect your mental health. A 2004 study by the National Academy of Sciences showed that you can reduce anxiety and stress by adjusting serotonin levels in the nervous system.
Eggs boost energy
Vitamin B2 or riboflavin and other B vitamins are good for your energy, since they convert the food you eat in fuel.
