We know that potatoes can be high on calories and they shouldn’t be consumed a lot when our goal is to lose weight. However, potatoes are also known for their amazing health benefits, and these benefits can be noticed, not only by eating them, but also by drinking potato juice.
High on vitamin C and other vitamins and minerals, like calcium, zinc, iron, and potassium, this specific juice is not only super easy to make but has a lot of health benefits that you will find out by reading this article.
But first, how to make potato juice?
You’ll need 2 large potatoes and 2 cups of water, clean and cut them in small pieces (leave the skin on!) and then in a processor, mix it all for 2 to 3 minutes. Now, all that’s left to do is strain the juice and drink it!
You can always mix other fruits and veggies to make it taste better!
So now, without any further ado, let’s talk about why you should drink potato juice and how many times should you drink potato juice per day!
1. Improve digestion
Potato juice can, and will, help you with digestive problems since it’s high in alkaline, which means that drinking potato juice can decrease acid reflux and work as a pain reliever for gastritis and other stomach problems.
Extra tip: Pink potatoes are also known to help with stomach ulcers, so drinking half a cup before each meal is recommended!
2. Relieves heartburn
We all have suffered from heartburn at least once in our lives.
Heartburn happens when stomach acid flows back into the esophagus causing a burning and very uncomfortable sensation in your heart.
Potato juice might help you with this since it has certain compounds that, not only avoid this from happening, but also help with gastrointestinal inflammations.
3. Boosts immune system
Potato juice has a lot of vitamin C, as well as vitamin K and vitamin B. But, vitamin C is specially designed to help you fight infections and other diseases like cold and flu.
