Turkey ingredient helps produce nitric oxide!

Turkey is good for you, say the scientists. Not only is it high in protein and low in bad fat, “Turkey is also a good source of the amino acid arginine. The body needs arginine to produce nitric oxide, a compound that helps dilate blood vessels.

Now they hasten to tell us they don’t know for sure if eating foods rich in arginine actually helps keep your arteries clear. But hey, we hear practically every day some new way that nitric oxide is beneficial; so they just haven’t gotten around to exploring the next step down the chain. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say you’re probably safe to assume turkey is really good for you.

So buy a big one, cook it with love, and have a great holiday.
