Health Benefits of Sweet Potatoes

Studies have shown that people who consume good qualities of sweet potatoes are likely not to suffer any of these sicknesses:

1. High Blood Pressure: This is because of the presence of fiber in sweet potatoes. This can help lower blood sugar.  One medium sweet potato with the skin on provides about 6 grams of fiber.

2. Cancer: This is because of the presence of beta-carotene  in sweet potatoes.  It can help protect against prostate cancer. Beta-carotene may also protect against colon cancer.

3. Constipation: This is because of the presence of high fiber content in sweet potatoes which can help prevent constipation and promote regularity for a healthy digestive tract.

4. Infertility: This is because of the presence of iron in sweet potatoes. Thus, consuming more iron from plant sources appears to promote fertility in both male and female.

5. Inflammation: This is because of the presence of Choline in sweet potatoes. This  can helps to maintain the structure of cellular membranes, aids in the transmission of nerve impulses, assists in the absorption of fat, and reduces chronic inflammation.

6. Poor vision: This is because of the presence of Vitamin A and beta-carotene in sweet potatoes. This can aid visions.
