Title: Effects of feeding regular eggs, omega-3 eggs and walnuts on serum lipids
Serum lutein was significantly higher in both egg treatments (P<0.009 compared with the control, but was not different between the two egg treatments. Serum beta-carotene was also higher in the egg groups compared with control, but only approached significance (P = 0.139). n-3 fatty acid enriched eggs and organic eggs may both significantly increase serum lutein in healthy LOV consuming a predominately plant-based diet.
