Why is it important to eat camote tops?

I  love to eat camote tops (talbos ng kamote) because of its health benefits.  
Camote tops have the highest content of total polyphenolics among other commercial vegetables studied.
Contain protein, dietary fiber, lipid, and essential minerals and nutrients such as calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, sodium, potassium, sulfur, iron, copper, zinc, manganese, aluminum and boron.
Important sources of vitamin A, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin and ascorbic acid.”
Excellent sources of antioxidative compounds, mainly polyphenolics, which may protect the human body from oxidative stress that is associated with many diseases including cancer and cardiovascular diseases.
Promotes good health especially to people who were ill or who had undergone a medical treatment.
