Essential Vitamins: 
Consume turkey eggs as a source of vitamins, especially vitamins B-9 and B-12. Both vitamins help you make red blood cells, a process essential for healthy oxygen transport. Vitamin B-9, also called folate, also promotes healthy fetal development, while low B-9 levels can lead to neurological birth defects. Vitamin B-12, or cobalamin, supports nerve function and might help lower cancer risk, notes the Linus Pauling Institute. A turkey egg contains 56 micrograms of vitamin B-9 -- 14 percent of the recommended daily intake -- as well as 1.34 micrograms of vitamin B-12, or 56 percent of your daily B-12 intake requirement.

Beneficial Minerals: 
Turkey eggs come loaded with minerals, especially selenium and iron. Your body incorporates iron into heme -- a component of proteins responsible for oxygen storage and transport -- and uses it to support immune function. Each turkey egg provides 3.24 milligrams of iron, which is 18 percent and 41 percent of the recommended daily intakes for women and men, respectively. The selenium in turkey eggs promotes healthy cell growth and aids in thyroid function. Eating a turkey egg boosts your selenium intake by 27.1 micrograms, providing half your recommended daily intake.
