Renewing the Mind, Body, and Spirit through juicing

Yams for the Holiday

Yams are recently being re-discovered as a great source of several essential vitamins and minerals. They are high in beta carotene and Vitamins B1 and B6 which are beneficial to people with heart problems. It works by repairing damaged blood vessels. Yams are also high in potassium which is good for controlling cholesterol and blood pressure. Yams are also great source of fiber, manganese and carbohydrates not to mention Vitamin A, Calcium and Vitamin C.

There is always a great confusion between yams and sweet potatoes. Technically they are both called or often referred to as sweet potatoes. But always remember that the flesh or the inside of yams is orange in color white sweet potatoes are white.

Because of the recent craze about juicing, expect a lot of health benefits with yam juice. Daily consumption of yams can increase nutrient absorption of the body. It can also protect valuable enzymes needed by the body for healthier cells and maintaining the good condition of our bodily system. Juicing is so effective because all the vitamins and nutrients of fruits and vegetables are easily absorbed by the body because it’s already in liquid form.
