Potatoes are a popular vegetable in our country. It is included in the daily diet of a large number of people, because in addition to excellent taste characteristics, potatoes are a healthy product. It took potatoes almost a hundred years to win the love of the Russian people.

It is well known that the potato belongs to the Solanum family (lat. Solanum tuberosum), but few people know about its "brotherhood" with such crops as tomato, eggplant, nightshade, tobacco. The relationship is clearly visible in the inflorescence of the same type and the structure of the stem.

The medicinal properties of freshly squeezed juice have long been used by healers in their practice. And after determining its chemical composition, many times more medicinal products based on potato juice appeared.

What are raw potatoes?

Is raw potato juice really beneficial, or is its medicinal properties exaggerated? There are different opinions. For example, nutritionists do not recommend using it because of its high calorie content.

  • Solanine poisoning. It is a toxic substance found in the skins of potatoes. If the vegetable is stored incorrectly, it will certainly form. A root vegetable with a high solanine content is green.

    Sprouted potatoes are also no less harmful. When using such a product, possible dizziness, vomiting, nausea, headache, diarrhea, general malaise, weakness. Solanine poisoning is especially dangerous for pregnant women.

  • The advantage of carbohydrates in the composition. And as a result, the high calorie content makes it undesirable to use this product with a poor metabolism, diabetes mellitus.

  • When eating a vegetable product in large quantities, you can harm the pancreas.

How to use for treatment?

To extract the maximum of useful substances from potato juice, you should use it freshly squeezed, no later than 10 minutes later. Otherwise, over time, the juice oxidizes, darkens, and the substances become less useful and nutritious.

It is best to prepare vegetable juice in a special juicer that can process whole tubers.... Well, if such a device is not at hand, you should use a fine grater and gauze to squeeze the pulp.

  1. First of all, we choose a healthy, non-sprouted vegetable, without visible traces of rot.
  2. Wash well, remove dirt and sand.
  3. Peeling is not necessary, because the peel also contains vitamins.
  4. Apply a suitable spin method.

It is recommended to choose pink varieties of potatoes... Also, the best time for treatment with vegetable juice is summer-autumn, but no later than February. In winter, potatoes age, dehydrate, and germinate. Solanine accumulates in it, which will not bring any benefit.

It is important not to overuse the product. An overdose will obviously lead to undesirable consequences. The number of doses of a natural substance should be no more than 4 per day. The total volume of liquid is 600 mg per day, that is, drink 125 mg at a time.

With a small size, this outgrowth does not cause unpleasant sensations. Women live a full life. However, over time, the tumor can grow in size, and sometimes reach 1 kg of weight, which makes it dangerous for the body as a whole.

Daily on an empty stomach, 125 ml of juice, and so on for 6 months. After, they take a break for 4 months and again the course is restored. It was noticed that after two months of taking potato juice, the tumor begins to shrink.
