Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.
For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

High-protein diets have been shown to help prevent and treat obesity.1, 2 Researchers have found in a number of studies that, compared to eating carbohydrates in the morning, eating an egg breakfast is associated with appetite reduction and reduced calorie intake that could lead to weight loss in overweight and obese people.3, 4, 5, 6, 7 A mid-day egg meal has also been found to induce more of a sense of fullness than a carbohydrate-rich meal.8 How egg protein compares to whole eggs and to other protein supplements for reducing appetite and calorie consumption is not yet known.

Some protein supplements (particularly from whey) have been linked to increased muscle building in athletes and more efficient repair of muscle injuries after exercise.1, 2 The branched-chain amino acids in egg protein appear to be well used by muscle tissue after exercise, but researchers found that athletes taking 20 grams of egg protein or more after a workout were not able to use all of the protein and instead increased the excretion of protein breakdown products by the kidneys.3 In another study, supplementing with 15 grams of egg protein per day for 8 weeks did not have any effect on muscle mass or function in adult female athletes.4 A preliminary study found that post-exercise fatigue was unaffected by up to 20 grams of egg protein prior to exercise in long-distance runners.5

During the digestive process or hydroysis, egg protein is broken down into short amino acid chains. Some of these small peptides have been found to inhibit angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE), while others act as antioxidants in the blood vessels.1 These actions could lead to blood pressure reduction and improved blood vessel function.
In a study looking at overweight people with high blood pressure, taking three 20-gram servings of a protein supplement containing egg, pea, soy, and milk proteins was associated with blood pressure reductions compared to people taking a supplement with the same calorie content made with maltodextrin (a carbohydrate). After four weeks, systolic blood pressures were 4.9 mm Hg lower and diastolic blood pressures were 2.7 mm Hg lower in the protein group compared to the carbohydrate group.2

Egg protein is derived primarily from egg whites and is a complete protein, providing adequate proportions of all of the body's required (essential) amino acids.1 It is highly ranked for protein quality and digestibility,2 and is relatively high in branched-chain amino acids, which are used primarily to make and repair muscle tissue. Egg protein is sometimes used in protein supplements and protein-enriched foods.
Egg protein contains a compound called avidin, which is well known to interfere with the absorption of biotin, a B-complex vitamin.3 Ordinarily, people who eat eggs are not exposed to enough avidin to have a significant impact, and avidin is also neutralized with heat. However, those who eat raw egg whites on a daily basis or people using large amounts of egg protein supplements might need to be concerned. Because of this issue, some egg protein supplements are heated during processing and are promoted as "avidin-neutralized."
