Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta-carotene, an antioxidant which protects our bodies against harmful free radical damage. Some studies suggest that those who consume four servings of beta-carotene rich fruits and/or vegetables per day are at lower risk for developing cancer and heart disease. Aim to support and increase your body’s antioxidant defense by including more beta-carotene rich foods such as broccoli, carrots, pumpkin, kale, asparagus, squash, onions, and sweet potatoes into your daily diet.
