As the month has been designated National Diabetes Month, high fiber food is important, particularly lean proteins as well and special foods with low GI Index.

Let us talk about potatoes, as there is a difference between normal potatoes and the sweet ones. Which one is better, what is the difference??

Sweet potatoes are not similar to regular potatoes. They are actually a completely different vegetable than regular potatoes.

It is true that both of them have their place in a healthy diet, but these two foods offer different tastes and unique nutritional benefits.

Sweet potatoes are loaded with nutrients and have an impressive array of antioxidants. Sweet potatoes are also higher in fiber and they have a lower glycemic index which is important for diabetics and carbohydrate watchers.

Sweet Potato benefits:

1. Very rich in Vitamin A (beta-carotene) and Vitamin C which are powerful antioxidants that work in the body to remove chemicals that damage cells.

2. Good for stomach ulcers and flatulence and colon problems.

3. Loaded with potassium and so is a food remedy for people with high blood pressure.

4. Because of its high fiber content, it fights against constipation and colon cancer

5. A good food for people involved in heavy muscular work, since it is high in essential vitamins and minerals.

6. Good food for diabetics, because it helps stabilize blood sugar levels. It is counted as a low glycemic index food.
