For medicinal purposes, drink a third of a glass of juice three times a day, preparing it each time before drinking. It is especially effective as an expectorant and diuretic. The juice is used to treat burns and pustular skin diseases. Since rutabaga juice has a specific taste, to improve its taste, it is advisable to add a little juice from currant berries, raspberries, cranberries to it.
