They contain high levels of beta-carotene – a precursor of vitamin A and also a strong antioxidant which may have beneficial effects on the immune system and help protect cells from oxidative damage.

On top of this, sweet potatoes have a low glycemic index which may be related to the high fibre content which helps to slow down the rate at which the glucose is absorbed into the bloodstream.
