Happy Holidays! Let's Talk Turkey

For those who celebrate Thanksgiving or any holiday with this particular poultry, turkey may be healthier than you think.

Turkey is an excellent source of lean protein. It is used in many fat loss and muscle building diets because of it's muscle repairing and building qualities. Eating small portions of lean protein helps your liver do its job of detoxification, making it more efficient for fat-burning at the same time.

Turkey is also an excellent source of selenium, a trace mineral which is important to thyroid metabolism, antioxidant defense, and immune function. Selenium also has been shown to aid in the repair of DNA and damaged cells.

Turkey is a good source of vitamins B6 and B12 which are important for the conversion of proteins, fats and carbs to usable energy. These vitamins also help optimize blood sugar regulation.

This protein has gotten a bad rap for causing fatigue. However, the amino acid in question, tryptophan, has been proven in studies to only cause drowsiness when consumed in large quantities without any other nutrients.

When choosing a lean meat protein, try to find hormone and chemical free meats when possible. Stick to a portion the size of your palm so your body can digest and utilize all the nutrients and keep your metabolism up. And don't forget to enjoy your holidays!
