What's the purpose of some people swallowing or drinking raw eggs?

I've tried to swallow just one before and vomited it up. I would just like to know why some people swallow them or beat a couple of them in a glass and drink them. I heard it's suppose to be good for health and when your exercising, but not for sure and I'm not even going to try and attempt to swallow another raw egg again....

its a very large amount of protein in one sitting, people drink raw eggs for muscle building and the like.

It has more protein in it, as opposed to a cooked egg. If you cook anything, it will cook some of the nutrients out

I think I'll stick to cooking them instead. Lol

That's tasty too =)
But I'm a lazy cook usually, so if it's already edible, I'm probably not gonna change it for myself. Unless its really really good... Then I just might

they are full of a giant amount of nutrients such as protein. I've never attempted drinking one at this point though, because they do have a rather slimy texture.

Because some people think that it's more or better protein if the egg is raw, which is not true. 94% of the egg protein is digestable when heated (cooked) versus 55-64% when it's raw.

I don't think it would be the best idea if wanting to have a side of eggs I like them scrambled I have never tired a raw egg before !

They say it its for more protein. But that's a good way to catch salmonella!

Yeah that's what I heard also, but that is gross and making the person who does it bound to catch salmonella.

I've tried it once and it's hard going down its cold and slimy. Then it immediately comes back up!
Report as
I've tired it myself too, but didn't succeed in it going down. I vomited afterwards and never tired it again. Lol
