To start, know that the potato is a source of vitamins groups B, VS, and K, but also: copper(Cu),iron(Fe), potassium(K), phosphorus(P), magnesium(Mg) andzinc(Zn).

It is a food allowing The proper functioning of the system immune, of the nervous system, the digestive system and many reactions within our organism.

She is very rich in water and in starch. Starch is simply a big molecule compound Mainly glucose (sugar), it is the carbohydrate reserve of many plants.

Foods rich in starch, are called starchy foods (Rice, lentils, pasta, bread, ...). These foods are the main source of energy for our body.

It is interesting to know that part of the starch contained in the potato is not digested by our body. She eliminates herself as dietary fiber, which helps to fight against constipation, but Also to prevent the risk of the appearance of colon cancer.

The potato also contains a substance called lectin, it is a protein, which has the power to limit the development of cancer cells.

It is a food rich in antioxidants like the phenolic acids and the flavonoids as well as fibers.

Regular consumption of potatoes limits the risk of the appearance of inflammatory diseases and cardiovascular.

It also reduces the increase in the rate of certain lipids within our body such as cholesterol or triglycerides.

I draw your attention to the fact that a potato with green spots contains alkaloids. These are substances that are made up of atoms ofnitrogen. VSErtaines of them can drive Food poisoning and damage to the nervous system if they are consumed significantly.

Know that alkaloids do not disappear when cooking, it is therefore imperative not to consume potatoes with green spots.

To benefit from all the benefits of the potato, you should not put them in the refrigerator. They must be kept at the darkness in an environment dry safe from humidity.
