Yams are a very nutritious and widely consumed tubercle in many countries in South America.
It can be used in sweet or salty recipes and even juices and broths.
They’re rich in fiber, protein, vitamin C and B-complex vitamins so they can:
Help You Lose Weight
Increase Muscle Mass and Energy
Improve Heart Health
Help Fight Alzheimer’s Disease
In order to benefit from these properties, you should eat your yams cooked, roasted or steamed.
Eating them raw increases your allergenic potential.
In addition, people with kidney stones should consume it cooked, as this reduces their levels of oxalic acid.
