Do quail eggs contain cholesterol?

Yes of course, but "the good one"! Quail eggs are rich in good fats, the ones that keep the levels of bad cholesterol under control. Also, fat is necessary for the preservation of good health, and since these foods contain the healthy ones, it is necessary to eat quail eggs as often as possible. What is also important is the fact that one quail egg contains only 15 calories.

Do not forget that quail eggs found their application in cosmetics as the part of the popular skin care products and hair products - which are intended mainly for those with slightly deeper wallets.

How much protein and iron do they contain? 

First, to answer why proteins are so important? First of all, they are essential in the muscle building process, and represent a long-lasting source of energy. Proteins that are contained in quail eggs (about 13.3 g) are of high quality, and they come together with a large amount of important nutrients, including vitamin B1. Its deficiency in the body can cause optical Neuropathology, Korsakoff syndrome, fatigue, loss of weight, irritability and confusion.

Quail eggs contain five times more iron and potassium than chicken. The lack of these minerals can cause anaemia. Otherwise, it is essential for protein binding and the transfer of oxygen in the blood. Women before menopause and children often suffer from a lack of this mineral.

This condition begins through the main mechanism that regulates the levels of iron in the blood, which are located in the digestive tract. When the iron is not absorbed in these bodies, we suffer from a lack of this mineral, or anaemia. So if you are prone to anaemia, be sure to eat quail eggs.

Also, there is a potassium deficiency in the body which can cause nausea and muscle spasms, as well as chronic constipation. We lose most of the potassium by perspiration, polyuria (increased urination due to taking certain drugs or diuretics) and intense vomiting.

Quail eggs as a remedy for allergies

Another important feature of quail eggs is that it helps in the treatment of allergies, allergic rhinitis, asthma, hay fever, and eczema and psoriasis. Otherwise, according to statistics of the World Health Organization, even 10 to 15 percent of the total population of the planet suffers from some form of allergy.

However, the cause of this phenomenon has not been discovered yet, nor is the way to solve this problem. Patients are advised to avoid allergens, such as pollen, dust, certain foods and the like. However, some of them sometimes cannot be avoided.

When an allergen enters the body of a sensitive person, it provokes B cells to secrete antibodies known as immunoglobulin E (IgE). These antibodies bind to cells which contain histamine, which is known as a mast cells. The antibodies stimulate the secretion of histamine, which causes symptoms such as shortness of breath, cough and rash.

Conventional antihistamines may help to combat these symptoms, but they are also common side effects. The study that included people who suffer from allergies, and who ate organic eggs of quail, found that these foods reduce the secretion of immunoglobulin E (IgE).

Doctor Jacques Bienveniste from the Institute of National Health and Medical Research in Paris said that the result of this study can be interpreted in two ways:
  • The first - the ingredients of quail eggs can directly affect B-lymphocytes, preventing the production of immunoglobulin E.
  • The second- mentioned ingredients affect another group of white blood cells, T-lymphocytes, which in turn suppress antibody production of B-lymphocytes.

In both cases the result is the same, it stops the release of histamine.

Doctor Fasoli Armando from the Italian province of Asti recommends to patients (a total of 275 adults) who have suffered from allergies hives, asthma and allergic rhinitis to take healthy quail eggs.

After two years, the group that suffered from hives recorded a 100 % improvement. Also, after 18 months, 90 % of asthmatics reported the disappearance of symptoms. Also, 40 % of patients reported that they generally feel a lot better and that the level of energy increased.
A great source of vitamins A and B2

Quail eggs contain twice more valuable vitamins A and B2 than the eggs of ordinary chicken. Vitamin A is best known for keeping the health of your eyes and strengthens the vision, but it is necessary for the development of an embryo and skin health, and it is a very powerful antioxidant.

Vitamin B2 also known as riboflavin, whose lack is manifested in the form of cracked edges of the lips, photophobia (sensitivity to light), dermatitis (dry skin scaly patches) and bloodshot eyes (accompanied by photophobia).

Also, it contains more phosphorus and calcium than chicken eggs. It is therefore particularly recommended for children because it strengthens and preserves the bones, but they are also are a good choice for women before menopause (to prevent weakening of the bones - osteoporosis).

This mineral is essential for all living things, especially for cell physiology, where movement of calcium ions Ca2 + in the cytoplasm functions as a signal for many cellular processes. So try to consume quail eggs as much as possible.

Phosphorus is essential for life. It is an integral part of DNA, RNA and adenosine, and phospholipids, which form all cell membranes.

How to drink quail eggs?

Always take them raw before breakfast, when your stomach is empty. Try not to eat anything for 30 minutes after that. Nutritionists recommend taking a full daily dose in the morning. Be sure not to drink alcohol during treatment, and if by any chance you have a diseased gallbladder, do not consume quail eggs.
