Gobble up some turkey!

Did you know that turkey is an excellent source of iron and zinc?

Zinc has repeatedly been linked to normal hormonal function, cell division and sperm physiology, while we know that iron deficiency has been tied to increased rates in miscarriage and anovulation.

Both nutrients contribute to maintaining healthy sperm and egg quality and are essential for a healthy pregnancy.

In other good news, not only is turkey a lean meat, but it also is an excellent source of protein, which helps maintain lean muscle mass and keep your insulin levels stable after you eat meals.
