I know you feel a bit guilty whenever you have that craving to munch some potatoes.  Yes, we all have that inkling for having that smooth, soft and mushy texture of US Potatoes that massages our mouth unlike any other.

Well, go ahead!  Have some.  I’m not going to stop you.  In fact, I’m giving you the Top 4 Reasons why you should give in to your US potato craving.

1.    For detoxification
With our daily exposure to toxins, we need all the help we can get to get rid of free radicals from the body.  Potatoes contain carotenoids, flavonoids, and caffeic acid, as well as unique tuber storage proteins, such as patatin that works wonderfully in doing that.

2.    For nutrition
We should eat nutrition-rich foods to meet the daily nutritional requirement.  Need a boost on vitamin C, potassium, iron and vitamin B6?  Then, have some US potato.  It has more vitamin C than tomato and sweet potato and has more potassium than bananas.

3.    For digestion

US potatoes are rich in dietary fiber.  One medium potato with skin contributes 2 grams of fiber of 8% of the daily value per serving.

4.    For heart health
US Potatoes are cholesterol-free, naturally sodium free and have zero saturated fat.  Dietary fiber improves blood lipid levels, regulating blood glucose, and increasing satiety.  While, Vitamin C protects the arteries and Vitamin B6 reduces levels of homocysteine of the high levels have been implicated in the heart disease and stroke.
