Sweet Potatoes can benefit people with diabetes, autoimmune disease, compromised immunity, poor vision, obesity, cognitive degeneration and more.
Sweet potatoes are by far one of my favorite tubers. When it comes to nutrition, these potatoes are my top pick. They are loaded with Vitamin A (pair with fat to receive full benefits), have a lower glycemic index (great for diabetics) and are loaded with beneficial antioxidants (the darker the potato the more antioxidants). Sweet potatoes also have a high amount of vitamin C, B3, B5, B6, manganese, potassium and copper.
Some other benefits of eating sweet potatoes include boosting brain function, improving vision, enhancing immunity, and helping with weight loss.
*Sweet potatoes are also safe for autoimmune disease (not related to nightshades) and a great source of nutritional carbs for other primal oriented diets.
