Since I gave up red meat and other sorts of meat instead of seafood, one of the questions I had was “eggs.” I love eggs as much as I love red meat and for people with endo, eating out gives us very few choices except for Asian restaurants and if you order fried rice, you’ll get eggs, etc. So are eggs good for endometriosis and for shrinking endometriomas? Whatever helps endometriosis will also help endometriomas because it’s the same toxic cells acting up that lead to everything.
Endometriosis is led by these cells called Fibrin and everything we’ve been eating or stating on this site has been trying to dissolve and get rid of these bad fibrin. Where does egg come along? Is it safe to eat? Is it inflammatory? I have no idea why some people say eggs are inflammatory. It may be because they didn’t really know what chemicals or nutrients eggs are composed of. The web is full of conflicting opinions and that made me really confused on what foods you can and cannot eat.
I wanted to get to the bottom of this so I researched into the nutrients of eggs…The eggs I usually buy are organic as well as vegetarian fed. Some I guy are even vitamin enhanced to get the most benefit. Next time you’re at the market, look at the egg nutrition label. This is what mine reads:
Not only is egg low on fat, it also includes a load of vitamins that we need (especially those trying to get pregnant). A study published in Biological and Pharmaceutical Bulletin showed that proteins in egg yolk inhibit platelet aggregation. It also showed that it makes the process of turning fibrinogen into fibrin longer. Fibrinogen is a protein in the blood. Fibrin is what we’re fighting against. Fibrin is created when platelets and red and white blood cells are deposited to form a blood clot. Eggs prevent the clotting and they do it by the dose. The more eggs you eat, the less clotting. But note, don’t go out eating crazy amounts of eggs. 2 per day is a good quantity that is beneficial for your health as well as your endo.
What in eggs reduces, yes, actually “reduces” and not increases, inflammation? Choline. 2 eggs contain about 250mg of choline. This is half the recommended dosage for a normal diet. 90% of the American population is choline deficient. When you’re deficient of choline for a prolonged period of time, men and women develop a fatty liver as well as muscle damage.
You can do a search on egg health benefits and find more information on their good values but my point today is to clear up the whole whether to eat eggs when you have end problem. The answer is: yes, you may eat it! It’s about the only protein besides vegetables that’s great for you during your process of ending endo. Go for it!
