An extract of sweet potato leaves was discovered to be extremely toxic to prostate cancer cells in this study, killing 94% of them in vitro & slowing the growth of prostate tumors in mice by 75%. Other research has shown that these super-greens are also active against breast cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer, stomach cancer & leukemia. And the health benefits of these greens are not just for the lab. One study in Taiwan showed that eating at least 100 grams per week of this super vegetable decreased lung cancer risk by up to 57%! In other studies, sweet potato leaves boosted immunity (T lymphocytes & natural killer cells) in humans & lowered blood sugar in mice with Type II diabetes. And if you need an energy boost, sweet potato leaves could be just the vegetable for you. A recent study showed it significantly relieved fatigue in mice, increased exercise capacity & even boosted muscle glycogen levels! Why are these greens so powerful? They are an excellent source of potent antioxidants called polyphenols, including the unique & powerful caffeoylquinic acids, & anti-cancer peptides. And alkaline diet fans take note: these greens are one of the most alkalizing vegetables out there, delivering 400% of the alkalizing power of pure lemon juice, ounce for ounce.

The new analysis published in the journal HortScience found the leaves have 3 times more vitamin B6, 5 times more vitamin C, and almost 10 times more riboflavin than actual sweet potatoes. So it is nutritionally similar to spinach, but sweet potato leaves have less oxalic acid, which gives some greens like spinach and chard a sharper taste.
