Health benefits of Sweet Potato


One sweet potato provides 400% of the vitamin A your body requires each day. This benefits both your eyes and your immune system, which is your body’s fight against infections. It’s also beneficial to your reproductive system as well as organs such as the heart and kidneys.

 The flesh of some is white or cream-colored. Other colours include yellow, red, and purple.

Sweet potatoes have gained the moniker “superfood” due to their high nutritious content. Carbohydrates are found in copious amounts in sweet potatoes. Some cooking methods, such as baking, roasting, and frying, boost the glycemic index of the food, causing blood sugar to spike. If you have type 2 Diabetes, consult your doctor or a dietitian for advice  before using it in your diet.
