Health Benefits of Organic Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes/yams are a staple food around the world and there is good a reason why. Sweet Potatoes are jam-packed full of great nutrition which is vital for enjoying life. Sweet Potatoes are full of B-6 Vitamins which is great for helping reduce inflammation and which also helps reduce arthritis, cardiovascular problems, and also strokes.
Sweet Potatoes are also filled with a good amount of iron that helps your blood transport more oxygen and powers up your muscles, boosts your immune system, and also helps with stress. And most people don't get enough magnesium which helps you feel relaxed and is important in the integrity of your blood vessels, heart, nerves, and your bones. And potassium is great for anyone with electrolyte problems and irregular heartbeats–you will find a lot of potassium in Sweet Potatoes.
And you can get Vitamin D from Sweet Potatoes which is great for enhancing your mood and giving you a boost of energy, and build a strong and vital organ system. Sweet Potatoes are full of beta-carotene which is a great anti-oxidant that helps with those nasty free radicals... and what I like most about Sweet Potatoes is that they break down into glucose much slower than other starches thus making them great for diabetics.
Bake them, mash them, grill them, make long strings out of them with a peeler and make Sweet Potato pasta–it's great!
Remember to Eat Organic - Regular Sweet Potatoes contain up to 6 cancer-causing chemicals, 12 hormone-disrupting chemicals, and 10 other disease-causing chemicals, so please eat organic and stay healthy.
