Sweet potatoes are not just another starch root vegetable. They contain numerous, significant, and surprising health benefits, including antioxidants, anti-inflammatory compounds, and blood sugar-regulating substances. Their bright orange flesh is one of the best sources of beta carotene, the pre-cursor to vitamin A. Sweet potatoes contain 1000-6000 micrograms of vitamin A in every 3 oz serving. But be sure to include some healthy fat like grass fed butter with those, because your body can’t absorb or convert that beta carotene into vitamin A without some fat!

Sweet potatoes’ phytonutrients lower your health risk from free radicals and heavy metals. These phytonutrients also help with digestive tract problems including IBS and ulcerative colitis.

And be sure to be generous with those super powerful spices–curry powder, coriander, cardamom, and turmeric which have massive benefits from anti-aging, brain health, cancer protection to arthritis.
