HEALTH BENEFITS OF SWEET POTATO
Not only are sweet potatoes readily available, inexpensive, and delicious, they also have many benefits for your health. Here are four.
- They are high in vitamin B6, which reduces the chemical homocysteine in our bodies, a chemical linked with degenerative diseases such as heart attacks.
- Great source of vitamin C.
- Most commonly known for helping to ward off the cold and flu viruses, vitamin C plays an important role in bone and tooth formation, digestion, and blood cell formation as well as helps to accelerate wound healing.
- Sweet potatoes contain iron which supports a healthy immune system by helping with the production of red and white blood cells.
- High in magnesium, sweet potatoes are a good source of relaxation and anti-stress creation.
