Maybe, you have never been told that raw potato is one of the best natural remedies. Even though the medicinal properties of raw potatoes have been known and used for years, but it is generally thought that they are unsafe for consumption.
But, surprisingly, this opinion is actually wrong! Namely, the raw potato juice has been proved to be one of the best natural remedies for treating various diseases. For instance, it can reduce the high blood pressure, treat diabetes and even cancer!
Before consuming, the potatoes have to be peeled as some of them may have harmful ingredients, particularly those that have green skin or sprouts (first must-do is to peel the potatoes).
There have been a number of articles on the medicinal properties of raw potato juice by many health experts.
To be more specific, according to John Lesindzer, the raw potato juice is the most effective natural remedy in the treatment of gastritis, which is the most common disease in the 21st century. In addition, he recommends taking 1 tablespoon of raw potato juice in a little water, and consuming it before meals, 3 times daily. When it comes to treating stomach and duodenal issues, drink 500 ml of raw potato juice each morning, on an empty stomach, and another 500 ml half an hour before meals, 3 times on a daily basis.
Also, a professor of the Medicine University of Akita, Japan, Dr. Kagamine, conducted a study that focused on isolating the substance of raw potatoes. Moreover, he found out that this substance suppressed the growth of tumor cells in mice, and the results were published in the International Congress held in Germany.
