Softshell turtle egg: The king of eggs

The eggs of any animal - not just turtles - play a crucial role in the growth of life. They provide essential nutrients and protection from natural enemies. The shell contains calcium, the white provides an immune system and acts as a natural disinfectant, and the yolk is a rich source of key nutrients.
Eggs are very near the "perfect food", even from the perspective of modern nutritional science. They contain nearly all of the nutrients the body needs, and in rich supply. Eggs are probably the only richest food there is in terms of nutrition. 。

And of all the varieties of this "perfect food" there are in the world, one reigns supreme…
softshell turtle eggs !

Most people are surprised by this. Many assume that chicken eggs are the best.

This is not true. The softshell turtle egg is the

A softshell turtle egg has a better balance of nutrients than other species. Turtles have been around longer than humans, and they live longer. A softshell turtle egg is about 2 cm in diameter and weighs 5g. They are perfectly round and encased in a whitish shell. Just like with chicken eggs, when cracked open they contain egg white and a yolk, but compared with chicken or quail eggs, there is a higher ratio of yolk to white, and therefore a more intense and fresh visual presence. The white of the softshell egg is more viscous and thicker than that of a chicken egg. That is because the protein comprising the white is different from a chicken egg. Softshell turtle egg white is made up mostly of an enzyme called lysozyme. This enzyme has excellent disinfecting properties. It builds up the immune system and fights off infections.

What is lysozyme?
In the human body this enzyme is found in tears, nasal mucous and saliva. It is also found in egg white. Lysozyme is a strong natural disinfecting agent, and it works by destroying the cell walls of bacteria.

The properties of softshell turtle eggs alone make them a good health food supplement, but Remain Young contains added ingredients to make it even more ideal and near perfect.

The egg white is not only a rich source of nutrients, it also protects the yolk from bacteria.
Lysozyme, the chief component of the egg white of softshell turtle eggs, is a natural bacteriolytic.



We have performed experiments by cooking turtle eggs and quail eggs "sunny side up".

They were cooked together in the same frying pans. Because they are the same size, they are perfect for the purposes of comparison.Even after the white of the quail eggs were burnt almost to a crisp, parts of the white of the turtle eggs had only begun to turn a cloudy white.

Why does it take longer for the white of the turtle eggs to firm up.
The reason has to do with the tenacious power of softshell turtles to survive despite extreme conditions.
Softshell turtles live in climates that are hot year round. They lay their eggs in hot sand. Under these conditions, eggs laid by any other animal would certainly not produce hatchlings. They would die from the heat. The softshell turtle, however, has adapted over millions of years and become a robust creature able to reproduce despite harsh environmental conditions.
Its high degree of adaptability is manifested in its ability to lay heat-resistant eggs.
Let's now look at the differences between the eggs of softshell turtles, quails, and chickens from a nutritional perspective.
These results demonstrate why the softshell turtle egg is called the "King of All Eggs".
