Benefits of Raw Potato Juice

Potatoes are one of the most readily available tubers in the world. Sadly, they are often viewed as unhealthy due to the cooking methods that are most often used (fries, for example). However, when left raw the benefits of potatoes are pretty extensive. Nutrient dense and capable of helping with a variety of health issues, juicing potatoes can be a fantastic way to improve your overall wellbeing.

The juice of raw potatoes can have a significant effect on the digestive system, especially when it comes to health issues resulting from a buildup of acid or bile in the stomach or digestive tract. When drank regularly, potato juice can reduce the amount of acid in the stomach, which can be especially beneficial for those suffering from acid reflux, as well as improve digestion by cleansing the digestive tract of uric acid, which can cause blockages that lead to constipation or bloating.

Raw potato juice also helps to create a healthy environment for beneficial bacteria to grow. This one-two punch not only clears out existing buildup, but also helps to keep your digestive tract clear in the long run, making it easier for your body to process the foods you eat.

Perhaps one of the greatest benefits of raw potato juice is the fact that it can almost eliminate that too-heavy feeling many people experience after eating. As the body stores anything it doesn’t digest into fat, ensuring that everything you eat is used up by your body can have a dramatic impact on weight loss as well as how you feel during the day.

From keeping your digestive tract clear to helping your body utilize the food you eat, raw potato juice can benefit a variety of systems in your body, as well as have an impact on your overall health and well-being.

If drinking raw potato juice by itself is not your thing, you can mix it with a surprising amount of different fruits or vegetables. Since potato juice has a milder flavor you can disguise it with other flavors pretty easily. So try sneaking raw potatoes into some of your current juicing recipes and see how it goes. Since potatoes help with digestion, you can try mixing with other digestion themed drinks like ones that include ginger. Some detox juice recipes also tend to include potatoes.
