While it’s not a plant, the egg has something that is very hard to come by in the food world, but is critical for healthy skin and bones. That thing is Vitamin D. Sure, the best way to get Vitamin D is from exposure to the sun, and that may seem simple enough. However, Vitamin D deficiency is a common problem, especially in the aging population.
A focused review on Vitamin D and the skin concluded that a deficiency could have significant ties to disorders including skin cancer, psoriasis and ichthyosis, as well as autoimmune skin disorders such as vitiligo, blistering disorders, scleroderma and systemic lupus erythematosus. Atopic dermatitis, acne, hair loss, infections and photodermatoses were also noted as being related to insufficient amounts of Vitamin D.
So, when you can’t get outside, make sure to eat your eggs.
