Juicing Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potato juicing recipes have vitamin B6, which breaks down homocysteine. Homocysteine is a compound that damages blood vessels. Research suggests that people with heart attacks have high levels of homocysteine in their blood vessels.
Research has shown that vitamin B6 reduces the risk of heart disease. Sweet potatoes are also packed with potassium, which control blood pressure and are rich in fiber, which helps you to feel full for longer periods. Sweet potatoes have a slow digestion rate due to their fiber content and are considered a complex carbohydrate, which in turn stabilizes an individuals insulin levels.
Choose sweet potatoes that are firm with no signs of decay. If you prefer sweeter tasting sweet potatoes, then choose darker sweet potatoes.
