Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene), vitamin C, manganese, several B vitamins, and potassium. Vitamin A is crucial for maintaining healthy vision, immune function, and skin health. Vitamin C and manganese are important antioxidants that help prevent cellular damage (check out some vitamin C-packed recipes here). Sweet potatoes are a good source of dietary fiber, which is beneficial for digestive health. Fiber helps to prevent constipation and promote a healthy digestive tract. It can also aid in maintaining a healthy weight by keeping you feeling fuller for longer (find a whopping 50 high-fiber recipes here).
