Is sweet potato healthier than a potato?

It’s crazy to think that a sweet potato is healthier than a potato.  Potatoes are amazing at spiking blood sugar, the reason they are at most ultra-marathon running tables.  Not good if you’re trying to lose weight though, as we all know a high GI equals a subsequent high hunger. 

Sweet potatoes, even though they taste sweeter than a potato, are a low GI starchy veg.  Amazing, right?  But it doesn’t stop there, sweet potato is a great antioxidant as well as an anti-inflammatory agent and can help with the reduction of multiple sclerosis (MS is the breaking down of the myelin sheath – the case that nerves are wrapped in).

Pretty sweet, right?
