Bright Eyes and Gastro...

Do you have dark circles or shadows under your eyes? Then try this easy remedy :)
Juice 1 potato. Place pulp in a clean cloth. Squeeze juice into a cup and pulp into the compost bin. Dip cotton wool balls into juice and dab on your skin under the eyes. NOT in the eyes. Leave on for about 30 mins. Rinse with warm water and gently dab dry. Do this regularly. Then drink the juice it is said to be an excellent natural remedy for gastro and as an alkaline it may be helpful in neutralising stomach acids.  Potatoes contain the enzyme catecholase which is used in many commercial cosmetics as a skin brightener. They also contain a significant amount of beta-carotene, vitamin A, vitamin C and B complex vitamins (B1, B2, B6, folic acid). Did you know that a single potato provides almost half of the recommended daily quantity of vitamin C and vitamin B6, and 18% of the necessary daily intake of iron and vitamin B3? Besides these, potatoes also contain potassium, calcium, iron, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, copper, and fibres and proteins as well. Bringing the humble potato back into vogue :)
