Sweet potatoes promote productive bacteria in the stomach, small intestine, and colon, while at the same time, they starve out unproductive bacteria and fungi such as mold. By keeping these microbes at bay, sweet potatoes help enhance the body’s production of B12.
Sweet potatoes help prevent megacolon, which is an expansion of the colon due to proliferation of C. difficile, Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, E. coli, H. pylori, Chlamydia, and/or other bacteria. Plus, they help alleviate narrowing of the intestinal tract due to the chronic inflammation that’s so commonly diagnosed as Crohn’s or colitis.
Orange-fleshed sweet potatoes are packed with carotenoids such as beta-carotene and lycopene. If you are fair and eat a sweet potato daily, before long you’ll see your skin take on a glow, as if it’s been sun-kissed. The lycopene, combined with sweet potatoes’ abundant amino acids, helps draw radiation from the body.
Sweet potatoes are phytoestrogenic and help rid the body of unusable, destructive, cancer-causing estrogen that interferes with the body’s hormone function. These estrogens come from plastics, pharmaceuticals, food, and environmental toxins, as well as from the body producing an overabundance of the hormone (due to a diet high in estrogen-producing foods). By purging this excess estrogen, sweet potatoes make room for healthier estrogens to take their place.
Sweet potatoes help regulate hair growth. And if you struggle with insomnia or another sleeping disorder, sweet potatoes provide a critical form of glucose that stimulates the development of neurotransmitters such as glycine, dopamine, GABA, and serotonin, all of which aid in the ability to sleep soundly.
How To Use:
Whether you like orange, yellow, white, pink, or purple sweet potatoes, eat up. Each type holds medicinal qualities. Steamed sweet potatoes (or in soups, stews or stir-fries) hold the most healing properties.
