The unsaturated fatty acids and cellulose content in sweet potatoes are particularly large. These ingredients can not only promote intestinal peristalsis and achieve the effect of detoxifying the intestines.
It can also promote the rapid metabolism of some lipids and sugars in vascular, which can not only play a role in lowering blood lipids, but also prevent excessive deposition of some lipid components in the blood vessel wall to prevent thrombosis.
In addition, sweet potatoes contain particularly rich vitamin ingredients, such as vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C and vitamin E.
