A glass a day keeps the doc away!
Drinking raw potato juice is a good way to increase your overall health, according to Healthline.
The provider of specialist health information says juiced raw potato can give you a bunch of different nutrients that a cooked or baked potato can’t while studies found that it could help with digestive issues like acid reflux. More recent research suggests it might help reduce symptoms of some gastrointestinal diseases.
A 2013 study on mice suggests some components of potatoes have anti-inflammatory properties that could help with skin issues like acne or rashes. But more research is needed to prove the potato’s power as a skin treatment.
Healthline also states that a cup of potato juice can help you reach the reference daily intake (RDI) for vitamin C, boosting your immune system while one cup has about 11% of the recommended daily intake of zinc for women and 9% for men.
Potato juice also might have anti-inflammatory properties. But there’s still a lack of research in this department.
Those heading for the juicer are encourage to add carrots or leafy greens or fruit to improve flavour.
