Most people with high cholesterol levels shy away from eggs, but they aren’t as bad for you as you’ve been led to believe. According to the American Health Association, eggs contain around 200 mg of dietary cholesterol. However, experts say that only a minimal amount of food cholesterol enters your bloodstream. And when dietary cholesterol is introduced, your body naturally slows down its own production of cholesterol. That means you can enjoy eggs up to three times a week since they remain an excellent source of protein, amino acids, folic acid, calcium, potassium and vitamins A, B6 and B12.
