Red Potato is an antioxidant

The first factor that differentiates Red Potato from white is its color. But don't think it doesn't make a difference! This purplish color is due to the large amount of a vegetable pigment called anthocyanin, and its greatest benefit is that it is a powerful antioxidant. This means that it fights the much-feared free radicals, which are nothing more than molecules produced by our own bodies. The big issue is that, when they are present in large amounts, they can cause serious health problems, as they oxidize the cell membrane.

The consequences are many, and can range from premature aging to the onset of cancer. In addition, the antioxidant factor makes the immune system stronger, which reduces the chances of the body suffering from the symptoms of any disease. Finally, in general, anthocyanin prevents not only chronic diseases but also cardiovascular and cerebrovascular ones.

Food is rich in fiber

Another advantage of Red Potato is that it is rich in dietary fiber, substances that are very beneficial to our body. After all, they are the ones that give that feeling of satiety, and that's why they are often on the menu of those trying to lose weight, as they prevent the person from consuming more than they need for the body to stay well. In addition, they help with the digestion process, preventing both constipation and diarrhea, and eliminating stomach bloating. Finally, they allow the absorption of nutrients, which is essential for the proper functioning of the body.

If none of these reasons seemed enough to you, be aware that a diet low in fiber can lead to several health problems. After all, the absorption of vitamins and minerals will be impaired. In addition to constipation, a lack of fiber can also lead to diverticulitis and colon cancer. Remembering that these substances are present in several foods, but the ideal is to have a balanced diet rich in nutrients, which can be done through the chromatic diet.

It is a source of vitamins and minerals

Red Potatoes also have good amounts of iron, potassium and magnesium. Each of these minerals brings a different benefit, which is why this combination in just one food is so good. Iron, for example, in addition to preventing anemia, also increases the body's metabolism, which is why it is very suitable for people who exercise. Potassium, on the other hand, acts in muscle contraction and nerve transmission, also helping good athletic performance. Finally, magnesium protects against cardiovascular disease and prevents kidney and gall stones. You already understand why the Red Potato is so suitable for those who like the gym, right?

And although it has the same vitamins present in white sweet potato, purple has a higher amount of A, C and E. Vitamin A is good for the eyes, besides making skin and hair more beautiful. As for C, in addition to making the body more resistant to colds and flu, it helps in the body's absorption of iron. Finally, E has a strong antioxidant factor.

Regulates blood pressure

Red Potato is rich in chlorogenic acid, which is a component that prevents blood clots from forming and helps regulate blood pressure. In fact, in general it reduces pressure levels, and therefore it is more suitable for hypertensive patients. Remembering that the root can be prepared in different ways, such as fried, roasted or in the form of a puree. This allows it to be a versatile ingredient that can be added to anyone's daily diet, as it also has no gluten or lactose, and is also suitable for allergic and intolerant people.
