Softshell turtle egg nutritional checklist

Softshell turtle egg nutritional checklist①

~Being low-calorie and high-protein, softshell turtle egg is an ideal ingredient.~

While meats and dairy products are also good sources of the protein that the body needs to make muscle tissue, they are also high in fat, meaning that you might get more calories than you need. Softshell turtle eggs, on the other hand, are high in quality protein but low in calories.





In addition to providing the nutritional building blocks needed to grow skin, bones, muscle tissue, hair and blood, they contain the precursors to enzymes, peptide hormones, and neurotransmitters generated by the human body. Although there are many sources of protein, one important factor is getting the right balance of proteins and the amino acids—and getting it from the right source. As human beings are animals, it is only natural that animal protein is better for the body than vegetable protein. Most people think of meat when they hear the word "animal protein", but meat also contains an abundance of fat, so you have to watch your fat intake. So what is a good food from which to get animal protein? Eggs. And of all the kinds of eggs available, softshell turtle eggs are ideal because of their high protein content and low fat ratio.
People get energy (i.e. calories) from three main sources: carbohydrates, protein, and fat. Unneeded calories, however, end up being stored in the body as fat, which may lead to obesity. Health and energy can be affected by either getting too many calories or not enough.

~Our product also contains DHA, an agent which sharpens the mind and found most abundantly in tuna.~

It also contains omega-3 fatty acids such as DHA and EPA, which are found in blue-backed fish and are effective in lowering cholesterol and triglycerides. These fatty acids are thought to be beneficial for preventing or attenuating the risks for many lifestyle related ailments, including arteriosclerosis and serious heart disease. DHA is also involved in the functioning of the nerve tissue in the brain. As is clear from the graph, softshell turtle eggs are rich in DHA and EPA, the former of which is only present in trace amounts in chicken eggs, and the latter of which is absent altogether in them.


●Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is vital for brain and nerve tissue development and function, and is found in large quantities in human brain cells. When DHA is depleted from brain cells, they do not function as well, and neurotransmitters are not generated or exchanged smoothly. In infants, this can lead to poor brain and nerve development, and can through cell aging hinder the ability to learn new things, as well as contribute to eyesight deterioration.

Epidemiological studies have shown that EPA helps to keep the blood fluid, lowers "bad" cholesterols and triglycerides, and raises levels of "good" cholesterol, which helps prevent or attenuate the risk of arteriosclerosis, cerebral infarction, stroke, thrombosis, hyperlipidemia, and hypertension.

~Softshell turtle eggs also contain twice the mineral content as chicken eggs.~

Softshell turtle eggs are about 2 cm in diameter and weigh 5g. The minerals become the raw materials needed for the body to make teeth and bones and to maintain a good environment inside and outside living cells. Just why are softshell turtle eggs so rich in minerals? One theory has to do with softshell turtles being hibernating animals. Softshell turtles have evolved so that their eggs contain an abundance of minerals to help them get through the hibernation season.

In the world of nutrition, a mineral is an element that an organism needs to survive. Minerals are counted among the five major nutrient groups, the other four of which are sugars, fats, proteins and vitamins.
Softshell turtle eggs contain over 50 vitamins and minerals in just the right amounts for the human body, making them an ideally balanced food for staying healthy.
