Philippine Egg Board Association enumerates five valid reasons why you should have one egg a day. First, it helps you in weight management. Second, it provides muscle strength and prevents muscle-loss. Third, it makes your brain function better. Fourth, it maintains eyes’ health. Fifth, it contributes to healthy pregnancy for women.
