The humble potato is one of our favorite vegetables, but did you know that in its raw form it’s also one of the healthiest?

A raw potato is loaded with potassium, thiamin, niacin, vitamin C, and more, making it the perfect food to fight these 10 ailments.

1. Stomach and digestion problems

Upset stomach, ulcers, and gastritis can all be alleviated by drinking potato juice.

2. High cholesterol levels

The juice in raw potatoes contains antioxidants, so drinking it can help lower cholestrol

3. Arthritis

Drinking 1-2 teaspoons of potato juice before each meal can help ease arthritis symptoms. As an alternative, boil clean potato peelings for 3-5 minutes, strain, and then drink the liquid after it’s cooled. Repeating this four times daily will help reduce pain and inflammation.

4. Scurvy

5. Skin problems

Rubbing raw grated potato over your skin will help moisturize and provide a healthy boost of nutrients.

6. Tired eyes

If you want to reduce puffiness, place a slice of raw potato over each eyelid for a few minutes. It works like a charm!

 

I’m glad to know that potatoes are not only delicious, but good for you, too. Weird, but definitely awesome.
