The 1873FM Continental Sunrise Breakfast Show host Tinashe Mpasiri spoke to George, a diabetic type 2 patient around his experience with Quail Eggs, see link below. The discussion was focused around promoting good health and well being in individuals.
The future of Africa is insecure because the health of its people is at risk. Quail eggs are not a delicacy many people talk or even know about. This, as nutritionist Daniel Franks of a well know university in Johannesburg says, “Because there is little known knowledge about their nutrition benefits. Research is still on going to find out the true nutrition value of these eggs.”
However, according to Dr Dlamini, quail eggs have a high nutritional value, and the public is encouraged to consume them regularly. According to her, quail eggs are richer in vitamins and minerals compared to chicken eggs. “Quail eggs contain 13 per cent protein compared to 11 per cent found in chicken eggs. They also contain 140 per cent of Vitamin B1, compared to 50 per cent found in chicken eggs,” she says.

Dr Dlamini further states that quail eggs are known to promote good memory by enhancing brain activity and regulating the nervous system.
Besides stimulating the brain, quail eggs have carcinogenic elements that prohibit the growth of various types of cancer.

People who suffer from diseases such as tuberculosis, bronchial asthma, diabetes and vegetative-vascular dystonia are encouraged to include quail eggs in their day-to-day diet.
