This creamy Thanksgiving sweet potato soup is perfect for your annual family get together. Let’s take a look at the ingredients.

Cayenne pepper:
One of cayenne peppers most potent properties is its ability as an anti-inflammatory agent. It is believed that the hotter the pepper, the stronger the anti-inflammatory properties.

Onions:
Onions are an excellent source of a sulfur molecule called Onionin A, which inhibits the activity of the white blood cells that cause inflammation. Onions are also packed with antioxidants, the most potent being quercetin. This antioxidant also provides anti-inflammatory benefits.

Sweet potatoes:
They are an excellent source of vitamin A and beta-carotene, which are two key antioxidants for overall health. Sweet potatoes have anti-inflammatory properties, and have shown benefits in regulating blood sugar.
