Benefits Of Eating Sweet Potatoes

  • The flesh of sweet potatoes contains high levels of beta-carotene, which works to fight dangerous free radicals in your body. [1] 
    • Free radicals affect the DNA makeup of your cells and can cause mutations. 
    • Cell mutations lead to various cancers. 
    • Inflammation causes multiple chronic diseases and can lead to health issues if not treated.
