We’re not talking about the ones smothered with brown sugar and butter that you eat at Thanksgiving. No, sweet potatoes deserve to be treated better than that – they’re full of vitamin E and rich in carotenoids, or plant compounds that nix cell damage resulting from everyday living and challenging physical activity like pumping iron. A medium sweet potato can account for 10% of your daily fiber needs and as for your muscles, the copper found in these sweet tubers assists in the production of connective tissue, including collagen. With spring season in the works, sweet potatoes may actually have the ability to help you breathe easier and ward off allergies.
