The benefits of organic potato juice are the alkalizing and anti-inflammatory properties, known to treat joint pain and rheumatoid arthritis. In addition, the juice healing properties treat gastritis, peptic ulcers, lowers cholesterol and removes skin blemishes and acne scars.The most nutritious part of the potato is the skin when you remove the skin you lose additional vital nutrients.
Always buy organic potatoes according the Environmental Working Group (EWG) the organization who compiled the dirty dozen list. According to EWG in one of their key findings discovered,”the average potato had more pesticides by weight than any other produce.” If you are concerned with excess dirt on the skin, I recommend washing the vegetable with Veggie Wash, a natural citric wash. As a warning, you should avoid green potatoes or potatoes with black spots; they have an alkaloid property called solanine that has a toxic effect. Other than that, just juice away. After juicing your potatoes, you will notice a white milky substance at the bottom of the glass, I simply stir it up and drink. You are probably wondering about the taste, hmm! The taste is that of a starchy potato. Some people find the taste to be unpalatable. For me, the taste is not offensive. Raw potatoes with salt were one of my father’s favorite delicacies. As a child, I would enjoy eating the raw potatoes with him. If the taste is unpalatable and should you need a mixer to drink the juice, Dr. N.W. Walker suggests combining carrot and celery juice for an extra boost in healing the digestive system and for muscle and joint pain. For the best healing results, consume the potato juice early morning on an empty stomach. Enjoy!
