Fresh Chicken Eggs
If you are looking for fresh chicken eggs that are humanely produced from chickens that are cared for, look no further.
The benefits of free-range eggs are not only in how they are produced, but also in their nutritional value. Studies show several advantages to farm-fresh eggs, including:
- less cholesterol
- less saturated fat
- increased vitamins A, E and D
- more omega-3 fatty acids
- more beta carotene
Omega-3 fatty acids are essential to the human body’s day-to-day functions and help to prevent several chronic diseases. Why do small-farm and free-range eggs have more fatty acids? Such chickens eat things such as bugs, leafy greens, corn and flowers—ingredients absent from the diet of caged hens.
The vitamins in eggs are all extremely beneficial to the human diet. Many people have a vitamin-D deficiency, though they might not know it, and can suffer the health issues associated with this deficiency. Pasture-raised eggs are widely regarded as one of the best food sources for vitamin D.
While farm-fresh and store-bought eggs have cholesterol, backyard eggs contain less. Most of the cholesterol in eggs is considered “good” cholesterol that doesn’t cause the health problems that “bad” cholesterol does. Cholesterol is an important part of humans’ diet. It helps us maintain calcium and phosphorous levels in our bloodstreams. – HobbyFarms.com
