Why Quail Egg is an Antidote for Hypertension, Liver Disease – Scientist

Quail eggs are critical antidotes for fat-related diseases such as hypertension, Animal Scientist at the Institute of Agricultural Research and Training (IAR&T), Dr. Yemi Popoola has revealed.

Quails are a fast-growing small short-tailed game bird that could reach maturity at about 56 days. They contain low fat and low cholesterol, according to Dr. Popoola.

In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, Popoola disclosed that quail was highly recommended for the adults due to its numerous nutritional benefits.

He maintained that quail egg could provide five times as much iron and potassium as chicken eggs, adding that it also contains more phosphorus and calcium.

According to him, studies have shown that quail eggs have positive effects on people with stress problems, hypertension, digestive disturbance, gastric ulcer, liver problems, blood pressure and lipid control

People with migraine, asthma, anaemia, various types of allergies, eczema, heart problems, bronchitis illnesses, depression, anxiety and panic are also not left out, he said.

In his words, “It does not cause allergy and diathesis. It can help to fight allergy symptoms due to the ovomucoid protein that is even used in the production of some anti-allergic drugs.

“Regular consumption of quail egg will boost the immune system.

“The egg is also known to stimulate growth, increase sexual appetite, stimulate brain functions, thus improving intelligence quotient and generally rejuvenates the body. It is a gem of nature, given to heal humans”

“Quail egg is small (between 10 and12gms) but it is packed with many substances needed to keep the body healthy. It is also an abundant source of useful trace elements and vitamins and a powerful stimulant of sexual potency.

“The eggs nourish the prostate gland with useful substances like phosphorus, proteins and vitamins and, therefore, help restore sexual potency in men. They promote good memory, enhance brain activity and regulate the nervous system.

“It (egg) also strengthens the immune system to slow down the aging of organs and increase the life span,’’ he added.

Quail-rearing occupies less space compared to other classes of poultry. They eat less feed and have short generation interval.
