Turnip Green Nutrition

Turnip Green Nutrition Turnip green nutrition provides a stack full of various nutrients which help to prevent numerous health conditions.

  • Turnip greens are an excellent source of beta carotene which helps to protect the bodies' cells from free radical damage and also provides a source of vitamin A. Beta carotene also helps the immune and reproductive systems to function properly.

  • Turnip green nutrition also provides an excellent source of vitamin A which plays a part in eye health and can help to fight off viral infections.

  • Containing lutein and zeaxanthin, turnip greens can help eye health and also protect the bodies' cells from free radical damage.

  • Turnip green nutrition also provides an excellent source of vitamin K which helps with blood clotting and can prevent postmenopausal bone loss. Vitamin K also protects against liver and prostate cancer.

  • Turnip greens contain a very good amount of vitamin C which helps to protect the cells and tissues from free radical damage, thereby helping to prevent cancer. Vitamin C also aids in dietary iron absorption.

  • Turnip greens are also a good source of calcium which helps to build strong bones and teeth. Calcium also helps with blood clotting.

  • One cup of turnip greens contains around 18 calories.
