And today, we will learn how to make a sweet potato and lemon juice. Have you ever heard about this combo?
When consumed frequently, it strengthens the body and helps your organs work more efficiently. But do you know why it works?
Sweet potato is a low glycemic index carb, which slowly releases sugar into the bloodstream. Since this sugar is gradually released into the blood, it doesn’t stimulate insulin.
Diabetic people can eat sweet potatoes, following the orientation of health professionals. Besides, it is rich in antioxidants, like cryptoxanthin, anthocyanin, and vitamin A, which help eliminate the buildup of toxins in the body.
It also helps reduce the bloating, as the soluble fibers unite with fats and sugar once digested. Besides, it also helps reduce cholesterol levels, preventing cardiovascular diseases.
And, if it wasn’t enough, sweet potato also is good for the liver, the organ responsible for eliminating toxins. Sweet potatoes can be considered natural anti-inflammatories essential for good health since they contain beta carotene.
If you are subscribed to our channel, then you probably already know all the benefits of lemon. It is excellent to eliminate toxins from our body!
Lemon is rich in citric acid and ascorbic acid, substances that benefit different parts of the body. It helps prevent bleeding, which are a big worry for diabetic people, and it is also beneficial for people who have wound healing troubles.
Besides, lemons are also high in nicotinic acid, which protects the arteries and prevents cardiovascular issues. This acid also helps reduce blood viscosity, which is a good thing since, when combined with diabetes, it may increase the risk of thrombosis.
And, if all of that isn’t enough for you, nicotinic acid also increases the alkalinity of the body, neutralizing the toxins and eliminating residues.
