October 09, 2022 00:00:00

Potato peel is more beneficial than potatoes. Some researchers suggest that it plays an important role in reducing the risk of heart attack. Potassium, magnesium and calcium in potato peels keep blood pressure under control, they argue. If you have problems with your heart, you can try some potato peels. Moreover, it reduces the risk of cancer as the peels are rich in antioxidants.

Potato peels are equally beneficial in preventing bone loss. Rich in calcium, the peels reportedly take care of one's bones and increase bone density. They have essential fibres that keep an individual's cholesterol levels under control. If you are diabetic, you can have potato peels in place of potatoes.
