“Sweet Starch” BEATS Diabetes and More!
Diabetics have a lot to worry about.
There are the ongoing issues with regulating blood sugar levels, managing medications, and facing painful side effects like peripheral neuropathy.
But in the past year-plus, this particular group of people has experienced a threat of another kind: COVID-19.
You probably already know that COVID-19 is much more dangerous for diabetics than for other folks.
Luckily, there’s one “sweet starch” that can help with BOTH issues.
Not only can it help regulate blood sugar levels — making it an ideal food for diabetics — it can also boost your immune system and help prevent infections.
It’s a powerhouse superfood you’ll want to be sure to start adding to your diet today.
If you’re planning to have potatoes with dinner tonight, consider choosing the orange ones rather than the white ones.
I’m talking about sweet potatoes.
Like most healthy, natural foods, the brighter the color, the higher the health benefits — and sweet potatoes are no different.
While they provide similar carbohydrate and fiber content to their white potato cousins, the compound that gives sweet potatoes their signature orange color is also what gives them a leg up when it comes to health benefits.
That’s because they’re loaded with beta-carotene.
Your body converts this nutrient to vitamin A, which not only protects your vision, but also plays a key role in increasing your body’s immune response to pathogens.
This is key for preventing infections.
Vitamin A also has anti-inflammatory properties and has been shown to be protective against autoimmune diseases.
Even though sweet potatoes are sweet, they have a low glycemic index, which means they release their blood sugar into your bloodstream more slowly.
This makes sweet potatoes are especially good for people with diabetes or prediabetes, since it helps regulate blood sugar levels.
Sweet potatoes are also loaded with magnesium, a key mineral that can help combat stress, depression, insomnia, blood pressure, and more.
You get the picture.
When it comes to the health benefits of potatoes, sweet potatoes truly are the sweetest of them all.
