Health Notes by Dr. Liz: Turkey Breast

November 9, 2013

Turkey breast meat is an excellent lean source of protein supplying about 50% of the Daily Value in just a three–ounce serving. This same serving also supplies a wealth of B vitamins such as B6 and B12, which both play a role in promoting heart health by lowering levels of an artery–damaging compound called homocystine. • Liz Applegate, Ph.D
