  Purpose

Study Rationale:

As epidemiological research has shown negative effects of high egg consumption on increased all-cause mortality and diabetes and on diabetes outcomes, and egg modification may modulate their effects on diseases risks, it is important to test the effect of eggs with different composition on markers associated with dyslipidemia, dysglycemia and inflammation.

The aim of this study is to assess the effect of n-3PUFA (Omega 3) fortified egg compared to omega-6 Israeli regular egg on metabolic, inflammation and other physiologic parameters.

Arms Assigned Interventions
No Intervention: Stage 1

Dietary regimens:

Stage1 - all participants (N=20) in first stage will receive two regular (high n-6 PUFA) hard-boiled eggs/day at breakfast for a three weeks period for each participant.

Experimental: Stage 2
Stage 2 will be conduct after 3 weeks for wash-out with no eggs. All participants(N=20) in second stage will receive two high n-3 PUFA hard-boiled eggs/day at breakfast for a three weeks period for each participant.
Dietary Supplement: eggs enriched Omega-3
In second stage participants will receive two Omega-3 enriched hard-boiled eggs/day at breakfast for a three weeks period for each participant.

Detailed Description:

STUDY OBJECTIVES

First endpoint:

To assess the effect of high n-3 PUFA (Omega 3) egg, as compared to regular- high n-6 PUFA (Omega 6) Israeli egg, on glycemic levels after night fasting and post prandial of 2 egg breakfast test meal.

Secondary endpoint:

To compare the effect of high n-3 PUFA fortified egg versus high n-6 PUFA (Regular) egg on measures associated with CVD risks including: CRP, LDL oxidation, MDA, post prandial Flow mediated dilatation (FMD), liver enzymes, and blood lipids and lipoproteins, and further blood chemistry measures.

Third endpoint:

To assess the influence of n-3 Egg on erythrocytes fatty acid profile.

Study design: Prospective, Crossover, Compared Study Study population: 20 Healthy subjects

Study Methods:

Subjects will complete two study stages. In first stage study participants will get 3 weeks regimen including 2 Regular, Israeli (high n-6 Pufa) eggs/day.

In second stage after 3 weeks washout without eggs, study participants will get 3 weeks regimen with 2 high n-3Pufa eggs/day.
