You love eggs but are on a low cholesterol diet?
Well, you may want to eat MORE eggs. Yes, you read that right!
Here's what some doctors recommend for foods that lower cholesterol, and for avoiding amnesia Lipitor, myalgia Lipitor - the side effects of high cholesterol medication:
Most naturopathic doctors put VERY FEW patients on high cholesterol medication – only in extreme cases, and only for short periods of time. Instead, they help people find statin alternatives for lowering cholesterol naturally.
Here's why to add egg yolks to low cholesterol diets:
Eggs contain nutrients to help the liver make lecithin, which in fact helps prevent cholesterol oxidation, and keep it from doing any harm!
Researchers have found a link between naturally occurring high cholesterol and modestly better mental function in areas such as visual organization, MEMORY, attention, and concentration. (Boston University, journal Psychosomatic Medicine.)
Cholesterol is also needed for making HORMONES, and the CELL MEMBRANE.

A huge Harvard study found:
The research team concluded that despite their high cholesterol content, this excellent food contains substantial amounts of healthy nutrients including antioxidants, folate, other B vitamins, and unsaturated fats.
(The Journal of the American Medical Association 1999;281:1387-1394.)
Researchers have reported for years that high cholesterol is just an innocent bystander of heart disease, and not a cause.
Instead, they are suggesting that controlling inflammation is the key to stopping vascular and heart disease.

FIRST SOLID FOODS FOR BABIES
Yolks are often recommended for babies, especially for their brain development.
PREGNANT MOMS TOO
"Research with animals shows that if a mother doesn't have enough choline during pregnancy, the fetus' brain doesn't develop normally and the baby can be born either with defective memory or lower memory capabilities that lasts throughout their life," says professor Steven H. Zeisel, M.D., Ph.D
"I think that pregnant women should eat one or two eggs a day to deliver the right amount of choline during pregnancy."

SENIORS, BETTER MEMORY AND EYES
Research has also shown that yolks in particular are a good source of lutein and zeaxanthin because they provide an excellent lipid matrix, making the carotenoids more readily absorbed.
LUTEIN & ZEAXANTHIN are better ABSORBED from your DIET than from taking pills and supplements.
An important dietary source of choline, they contain a more highly bioavailable form than other food sources.
Choline is recognized as a memory booster.
Among the most complete foods, they are the highest dietary source of sulfur-based amino acids including taurine, methionine and CYSTEINE (cysteine intact only when raw), which are needed for the liver to regulate bile production for proper digestion.
HEART DISEASE, Heart Irregularities, AFIB
Taurine is used in Japan as a supplement to treat ischemic heart disease as well as certain heart arrhythmias.
People who suffer from congestive heart failure are reported to have benefited from taurine therapy and taurine may also be helpful in the treatment of both hypertension and high cholesterol.
You may need extra help from supplements if you are worried about a heart attack or stroke - or blood clots due to AFIB or heart irregularities.
