Cocoyam porridge has a lot of essential health benefits for the body. Here are some health benefits of Cocoyam porridge.
1. Promotes digestive health.
Cocoyam porridge plays an important role in digestion because it consists of a high level of dietary fiber (a single serving contains 11.32% of the daily requirement of dietary fiber)
Fiber is very important for supporting our gastrointestinal health. Fiber helps to add bulk to our bowel movements, thus helping food move through the digestive tract and facilitating improved digestion.
2. Boosts the immune system.
Cocoyam porridge plays an important role in the immune system. Vitamin C is found in taro roots, which helps to encourage the immune system to create more white blood cells, which help to defend the body from foreign pathogens and agents.
Additionally, vitamin C acts as an antioxidant, which moderately prevents the development of conditions such as heart disease for a better immune system.
