The World’s Healthiest Food

Not only are sweet potatoes readily available, inexpensive, and delicious, there are many other reasons to love these yummy vegetables.  Sweet potatoes are high in vitamin B6.  Vitamin B6 helps reduce the chemical homocysteine in our bodies, which has been linked with degenerative diseases.  They are a good source of vitamin C.  This vitamin plays an important role in  digestion, produces collagen which helps maintain skin’s youthful elasticity, and is essen­tial to helping us cope with stress. They contain Vitamin D which is critical for immune system and overall health at this time of year.  Vitamin D plays an important role in our energy levels, moods, and helps to build healthy bones, heart, nerves, skin, and teeth, and it supports the thyroid gland.
