Did you think you only eat eggs in the morning? Well, a boiled egg in the evening before bed can be an ideal snack, according to Nick Bitz, phytotherapist and scientific author of the YouTheory page on Instagram.
The specialist claims that it is advisable to eat an egg, be it boiled, poached or raw, when the Moon is in its maximum phase.
Rich in protein, the egg helps you sleep better, the researcher shows. “We’ve found that if you eat a small portion of protein before bed, about six grams of protein, which is the equivalent of one egg, balances your blood sugar for most of the night,” Dr. Bitz explained at the latest Well+ conference. Good TALK from New York.
Protein induces sleep
Women are the most exposed to blood glucose disturbances, and the body’s reaction is to produce cortisol, a hormone released in response to stress, interrupting sleep and generating insomnia.
Just six grams of protein can induce sleep at night. But if you’re not used to eating scrambled eggs in the evening, you have other sources at hand, writes Well+Good. A handful of cashews, a spoonful of Greek yogurt or half a cup of fried chickpeas is a snack full of protein that helps you enjoy a good night’s sleep.
Boiled eggs, good for the figure and psyche
Egg white is a complete protein, because it does not contain lactose, cholesterol or other fats, but a lot of vitamins and minerals (niacin, riboflavin, magnesium, potassium). A weighted consumption of egg white reduces by 60-70% the risk of metabolic diseases, which can disrupt the proper functioning of the glands (pituitary, thyroid, adrenal glands). In addition, it gives a good mood.
“The content of glutamic acid in the egg white is a permanent source of vitality of the cerebral cortex, reducing the risk of nervous diseases and the onset of psychosis. Glutamic acid is essential in supporting all functions of the nervous system. Because it is a strong allergen, it is not recommended for children under 2 years old”, says nutritionist Lygia Alexandrescu.
Egg yolks are the ones that contain cholesterol, so you shouldn’t eat more than two a day. It is recommended for those suffering from gastritis, ulcer, enterocolitis and other digestive problems, but prohibited for those with gallstones, diabetes, atherosclerosis and hypercholesterolemia. The egg does not fall hard on the stomach, on the contrary, it is very easy to digest if it is fresh. The longer it is cooked, the harder it will be to digest.
The soft-boiled egg is completely digested after an hour or two, the hard-boiled egg or omelet after three hours. Doctors recommend the hard-boiled egg, especially for those who follow a weight loss diet, because it is harder to digest and postpones the feeling of hunger. Fried eggs are not recommended, they contain toxic compounds and are difficult to digest.
