Sweet potatoes are nutrient-dense root vegetables that come in a variety of colors. They’re high in antioxidants and fiber, which protect our body from free radical damage and helps to improve a healthy gut and brain. Just one sweet potato gives us 400% of the vitamin A we need each day. This helps keep the eyes healthy as well as the immune system, and body’s defense against germs. It’s also good for the reproductive systems and organs like the heart and kidneys.

It has earned the name “superfood” because of the number of nutrients they have.

It can be prepared in both sweet and savory dishes.

 4 – Support Healthy Vision:

Sweet potatoes are rich in beta-carotene and anthocyanins, antioxidants that may help

5 – Sweet potatoes can help in regulating blood pressure:

Sweet potatoes contain considerable amounts of both magnesium and potassium, both of which are essential in the fight against hypertension. They also help regulate blood pressure, which reduces the chances of individuals suffering from cardiovascular diseases.

 

How to Add Them to Your Diet: Sweet potatoes usually taste better in the winter, because then the benefits are even greater. They can be enjoyed with or without the skin and can be baked, boiled, roasted, fried, steamed, or pan-cooked. Their natural sweetness pairs well with many different seasonings, and they can be enjoyed in both savory and sweet dishes. Preparing sweet potatoes with a little fat such as coconut oil, olive oil, or avocado can help boost the absorption of beta-carotene since it’s a fat-soluble nutrient.

Although cooking sweet potatoes slightly reduces their beta-carotene content, they still retain at least 70% of this nutrient and are considered an excellent source.
