Health and Fitness

Turkey is a very rich source of protein.  One serving (4 oz.) can provide up to 65% of the recommended daily amount you should have per day.

Turkey helps protect against cancer, heart diease and can even help prevent birth defects.

Turkey helps boost your immune system and helps with the healing process as well.

Turkey regulates blood pressure and helps keep your blood cholesterol levels down.

The B vitamins in turkey help improve brain function, help with keeping your muscles tone and help with maintaining healthy skin.  One serving provides up to 36 percent of the recommend daily allowance.

Believe it or not, turkey can also enhance your mood because of the tryptothan it contains; it makes serotonin.  (I know I feel pretty happy after a big turkey dinner on Thanksgiving, also sleepy!)
