Did you know that a raw potato is one of the best natural remedies for numerous diseases? Raw potatoes have been used in alternative medicine for centuries, but people consider them generally unsafe for consumption. However, we couldn’t have been more wrong – raw potato juice has been proven as an excellent remedy for high blood pressure, diabetes and even cancer!
Potatoes must be peeled before consumption due to the presence of certain harmful ingredients, especially if their skin is green. Recently, many articles written by health experts on the medicinal properties of raw potato juice appeared online. John Lesindzer for example, says that raw potato juice is the best natural remedy for gastritis. He suggests consuming a tablespoon of the juice diluted in a glass of water before breakfast, lunch and dinner, while for treatment of duodenal ulcers, you should drink 500 ml. of raw potato juice every morning on an empty stomach, followed by another 500 ml. of the juice before breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Dr. Kagamine, a respected professor at the Medicine University of Akita, Japan, recently conducted a study which focused on finding the substance responsible for the medicinal properties of raw potatoes. He discovered that one substance suppressed the growth of tumor cells in mice, and the results of the study were later presented at the International Congress held in Germany.
At the moment, thousands of people are using raw potato juice as a natural remedy against high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney and heart disease. Raw potato juice can also reinforce your immune system if you drink it every morning and evening for a couple of weeks.
