Who doesn’t love warm muffins, fresh out of the oven?
But, there is even MORE to love about these muffins since they are FULL of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agents!
Health benefits of sweet potatoes
The flesh of sweet potatoes contains high amounts of beta-carotene that can fight dangerous free radicals found in the body.
In addition, free radicals affect the DNA makeup of the cells and can result in mutations.
These cell mutations contribute to various cancer types.
However, sweet potatoes are rich in anti-inflammatory nutrients that fight against chronic and acute inflammation.
If not treated, inflammation can trigger multiple chronic diseases and health issues.
