A fact about Chicken & Turkey
Turkey is an excellent source of vitamin D, which has a positive effect on our immune system and strengthens our natural resistance.
Here's how healthy chicken & turkey are
1. Protein bomb
Turkey and chicken are richer in proteins than other meats. These are the building blocks for your muscles (your whole body, in fact). They are also easy to digest, which makes them ideal for a sports diet.
2. Cholesterol control
Good news for anyone with high cholesterol! Chicken and turkey are ideal. Lean white fish is the only thing better.
3. Vitamin boost
The meat contains a cocktail of vitamins. Vitamin B3 (niacin) regulates the metabolism, vitamin B6 is great for the skin, vitamin B12 for a properly functioning nervous system and vitamin D for strong bones.
4. Low in Calories
Turkey is hands-down winner when it comes to calories. It's so lean that it’s streaks ahead of its little brother, chicken.
5. Source of minerals
Poultry is an excellent source of minerals and trace elements (these are also minerals, but they only occur in the body in small amounts). Both help to regulate the metabolism. A single portion contains phosphorus, selenium, calcium, potassium, zinc and iron: essential nutrients for the body.
