Cage-free (or Free-run)
This literally means the eggs came from hens that do not live in a cage. They are able to roam freely, able to strut their stuff and spread their wings, and able to lay their eggs in nests.
These are three vital natural behaviors that hens raised in cages are withheld from.
Eggs can be thought of like a Mary Poppins bag—so much is packed into such a seemingly small package. You will find the following nutrients packed in an egg:
- Choline: Choline is the precursor to acetylcholine, an extremely important brain chemical (neurotransmitter) for nerve and muscle function.
- Selenium: Nutritionally speaking, selenium is essential to humans. It plays vital roles in DNA synthesis, thyroid hormone metabolism, reproduction, and protection against oxidative damage and infection.
- Biotin (Vitamin B7): Biotin is most commonly known to benefit your hair and nails, but it also supports your digestive tract, skin, nerves, and metabolism.
- Vitamin A: Vitamin A has many important functions for health, including cell growth, vision support, and immune system support.
- Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin): Vitamin B12 is the only vitamin containing a metal element (cobalt). Among other functions, vitamin B12 is necessary to help facilitate the successful transport of oxygen through your blood, which supports your cardiovascular, brain, and nervous system health. It also aids in DNA production and regulates energy metabolism.
- Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid): This nutrient is vital for your energy metabolism. Pantothenic acid is a component of a molecule that goes by the name of Coenzyme A (CoA), an essential chemical for sustaining life. Carbohydrates, proteins, and fats are broken down and burned into fuel thanks to CoA’s assistance. Besides breaking down fats, CoA is also needed for fat storage and building cholesterol.
- Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin): When you get a ton of vitamin B2 in your diet, you will notice your urine turn into a bright yellow color. Besides giving a darker shade of pee, vitamin B2 gives vital support to iron metabolism, antioxidant protection, and energy production.
- Vitamin D: If there were two nutrients you may have been familiar with before reading this article, vitamin D was probably the runner up. Vitamin D keeps your bones healthy, your blood sugar under control, and your immune system in great shape.
- Molybdenum: Dietary intake of molybdenum helps keep your body’s sulfur levels in check. Sulfur is an essential element involved in protecting antioxidants and helping your body eliminate toxic waste. On top of that, it plays a role in the structure of connective tissue. A balanced level of sulfur is especially crucial for your brain and liver.
- Iodine: If you’ve ever done the simple science test for starch in a potato, then perhaps you are familiar with iodine. In a dietary sense, iodine supports your thyroid gland and is a fundamental component of hormone production.
- Protein: If there’s only one thing on this list that you knew about before reading this article, it has to be protein. Protein is basically found everywhere in your body—your blood, bones, digestive system, hair, heart, muscles, skin, tissue, and much more. There are over 10,000 different proteins, and they’re needed for maintaining the integrity of your body’s structure. See also: How much protein do you need?
- Phosphorus: Phosphorus is a key component in making sure your bones stay healthy and strong, balancing vitamins in your body, managing, making, and storing energy, producing your genetic building blocks (DNA and RNA), muscle contraction, and many other crucial bodily functions.
