Eating a healthy, balanced diet – including at least five portions of fruit and vegetables a day – could lower your risk of an early death, according to the NHS. But, you could also boost your life expectancy by regularly eating eggs, it’s been claimed.
Doing regular exercise can help to boost your lifespan. It’s the “miracle cure” we’ve all been waiting for, said the NHS.
Making some small diet or lifestyle changes could help to increase your life expectancy and avoid an early death.
One of the easiest ways to lower your chances of an early death is to add eggs to your daily routine.
Eggs are a heart-friendly, calorie-cutting “wonder food”, nutritionists have claimed.
“These powerhouses are packed with nutrients linked to good health and the prevention of many age-related diseases,” said the nutritionists in their book ‘Eat Better Live Longer – Understand What Your Body Needs To Stay Healthy’.
“Their positive effects on weight loss, memory, and eye and bone health mean that eggs are a great protein food to put on your menu.
“Eggs may have a high cholesterol content, but current research shows that cholesterol in food generally has little impact on blood cholesterol levels or heart disease risk.
“Eggs contain vitamin A, which is vital for healthy vision. In addition, they contain lutein and zeaxanthin, antioxidants known as carotenoids, which are concentrated in the macula and are critical for healthy eyes.”
