Hi Carl,

This is one of most frequently asked questions! Eggs are a great source of many vitamins and nutrients that you need in your everyday life.

One large egg will provide 6 grams of high-quality protein and only 70 calories. 

Eggs are a complete source of all nine amino acids that your body needs. Eggs are also a source of Vitamins A, D, E, B12, Iron, Folate, Selenium, Lutein and Zeaxanthin as well as choline.

It's pretty amazing that all those vitamins and nutrients fit in one little egg, don't you think?
