Health Benefits

Here are a few health benefits from making sweet potatoes part of your diet. Sweet Potatoes are an amazing source of:

Potassium - regulates fluid in the body’s cells, helps control muscle contractions, and helps prevent bone loss and kidney stones, and may help lower blood pressure.

Beta Carotene/Vitamin A - Beta Carotene which gives the sweet potato its orange colour, is converted to Vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A is responsible for eye health, vision, and also a well-functioning immune system. With the skin on, sweet potato contains more than 400% of the daily recommended amount of Vitamin A.

Vitamin C - helps the body fight infections, supports the immune system, aids the body in absorbing iron, and is needed for the formation of collagen.

Dietary Fibre - flesh of the sweet potato is loaded with soluble fibre which promotes good gut health, a well-functioning digestive system, and is linked to improving cardiovascular health.
