Turnip Green Health Benefits
It's rare to find greens that provide this level of nutrition. Usually a lack of calcium is the biggest concern with greens, but turnip greens actually provide a large surplus of calcium per serving making them a great choice for bearded dragons. It's calcium to phosphorus ratio puts turnip greens in our list of super foods (along side collard greens).
Other than calcium, turnip greens provide a large amount of Vitamin A. The large amount of Vitamin A should not be worrisome unless you're giving your beardie synthetic vitamin A.
You may notice turnip greens have a high amount of oxalates, which is normally a concern because oxalates reduce the amount of calcium being absorbed. However, turnip greens have so much surplus calcium the oxalic acid will have a major effect on calcium absorption.
