Raw Potato Juice Benefits

French fries, baked potatoes, potato chips, potato salad—there are hundreds of ways to cook and eat your potatoes. But have you tried consuming this vegetable in raw juice form? For a long time, potato juice has been used as a remedy for a wide array of ailments from skin disorders to constipation to inflammation, and even cancer. It’s not a surprise why. This vegetable is an excellent source of fiber, vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C, carbohydrates, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, manganese, and iron among others.

Let’s have a look at the countless benefits of potato juice.

BENEFITS FOR THE SKIN

Angular cheilitis – One of the most important purposes of potato juice is for treating angular cheilitis, a common skin disorder characterized by redness and swelling of the mouth corners. Potato juice is known to be an effective anti-inflammatory so applying this on the corners of your mouth can tone down the lesions in no time. If you make it a habit to drink potato juice everyday, you’ll get enough vitamin B complex, which you need to fight angular cheilitis. Experts say that vitamin B deficiency is a leading cause of this skin problem.
Blemishes – To treat blemishes, apply a generous amount of cold potato juice on the affected skin once a day.
Sunburn – Apply cold potato juice on sun burnt skin. This gives a cooling sensation that alleviates stinging and pain.
Wrinkles – Keep wrinkles at bay by dabbing potato juice gently on the face everyday. This also gives your skin a youthful glow.
Dark circles under the eyes – Dip cotton balls on potato juice. Put them under your eyes every night before going to sleep. In a week, you can say goodbye to those unsightly dark circles.
Puffy eyes and tired skin – Soak a cotton ball on potato juice and rub gently on tired eyes and skin.
Skin lightening – Potato juice is a natural skin lightener. Mix it with lemon juice and apply on the dark areas of your skin. An alternative is mixing potato juice with cucumber.
Anti-aging – For an anti-aging regimen, you can use a facemask made with potato juice and curd. This is a great way to hydrate the skin and reduce signs of aging like fine lines. Mixing potato juice with olive oil can help get rid of crow’s feet and dark circles under the eyes.
Dry skin – Apart from applying potato juice on your skin, it also helps to drink one glass of it everyday. This is good for dry skin and skin protection against toxins.
Eczema – Apart from angular cheilitis, drinking potato juice can also treat eczema, another common skin problem.
BENEFITS FOR THE HAIR

Hair loss – Potato juice can be used to grow hair faster. To do this, mix it with egg white and honey. Apply on your hair and let it stay there for two hours. Rinse off with mild shampoo and then, water.
Dry hair – Mixture of aloe vera and potato juice can bring back the healthy shine of your dry and frizzy hair.
Gray hair – Instead of using water to rinse off shampoo from your hair, use potato juice as this will help darken gray hair, and also give it a beautiful glow.
BENEFITS FOR THE HEALTH

Detoxification – Potato juice helps flush out toxins from the body. By doing so, it wards off numerous health problems like angular cheilitis. Angular cheilitis is usually caused by bacterial or fungal infection, which won’t occur in the first place if the body’s immune resistance is strong. Toxin overload can deteriorate your immune defense so by drinking potato juice for detoxification, you can help strengthen your immune system to fight off mouth corner cracks.
Arthritis and joint pains – As mentioned earlier, potato juice is a wonderful anti-inflammatory. Apart from doing wonders for inflammatory skin disorders like angular cheilitis, it can also be used as a remedy for arthritis, gout, back pain and joint pain. For best results, drink it in the morning before eating breakfast.
Cancer – Although not scientifically proven yet, many attest to the efficacy of potato juice for treatment of cancer. Drinking it everyday is said to help fight cancer cells and inhibit them from damaging other healthy cells.
Kidney disease – Drink potato juice to prevent calcium stone formation in the urinary tract.
Cholesterol – Lower cholesterol levels by drinking potato juice daily.
Cardiovascular disease – Healthy for the heart, potato juice can prevent artery blockage and heart attacks.
Weight Loss – This vegetable juice can also aid in weight loss. Drink it twice a day—first in the morning on an empty stomach and next, at night about two to three hours before sleeping.
Digestion – Regular consumption of potato juice can improve digestive function and thwart ailments like constipation, diarrhea, bloating, and indigestion.
Heartburn – When consumed first thing in the morning, potato juice is said to have positive effects for people who suffer from gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
Peptic Ulcer – Combine potato juice with carrot juice to treat peptic ulcer.
Food poisoning – For food poisoning, potato juice works wonders when mixed with pure honey or carrot juice.
Other ailments – Drink one to two glasses of raw potato juice daily to treat a number of medical problems like liver disease, diabetes, gastric ulcer, hypertension, and pancreatitis.
For those suffering from angular cheilitis or other medical problems mentioned above, or for those who simply want to live a healthier life, make it a habit to drink potato juice daily. Make the flavor more appetizing by adding honey, carrot juice or herbs like nettle, spirulina or sage.

***** Menchies Frozen Yogurt, 11057 Pinese Boulevard, Pembroke Pines, Florida 33026, (954) 495-4044.

Holy Moly!!!—just what we need, a-n-o-t-h-e-r self-serve yogurt joint. Say hello to Menchies Frozen Yogurt…franchise chain with loads of locations all over America… When you check its website–www.menchies.com you will find, that (for our purposes) it currently has outlets in Pembroke Pines, Davie, Hialeah and Tamarac. Menchies also has spots in Orlando, Lake Mary, Kissimmee and Winter Park- Florida. The chain’s website has a “huge” list of furture South Florida-locations with addresses and phone numbers…so, if Pembroke Pines, Davie, Hialeah and Tamarac don’t “work” for you, don’t cha worry, you’ll soon be able to fill a cup at 44 cents an ounce with 10 rotating flavors and loads of toppings.

For the record…yesterday (Sunday), I tried the Pembroke Pines’ joint out. Got there about 3:30pm and there must have been at least 20 people on-line waiting to load their cups up. You regular Jeff Eats’ readers…know that I am not a big-yogurt-fan…give me a Dairy-Queen Chocolate Heath Bar Blizzard, any day. With that in mind, I found the chocolate-vanilla-original tart “samples” to be delicious. To be perfectly honest with you, I gotta rate Menchies right-up there with the best self-serve joints that I’ve been to. The yogurt was right on the money…the toppings bar literally had “tons” of offerings (check website for list), the joint was as clean as a whistle and the toppings bar was constantly being tended to by an employee who was as pleasant and helpful as could be.

You-regular readers know, that I consider the self-serve yogurt business to be a huge FAD…which will soon have loads of unhappy owners and franchisees. That said, for as long as this party lasts, from what I can tell…Menchies has a terrific product and knows how to operate stores on the ground level.

If self-serve is your game, you will really enjoy Menchies.

Menchies is open Sunday-Thursday 11am-11pm and Friday-Saturday 11am-midnight.
