Red beetroot really has some amazing and healing properties.
It’s a vegetable familiar since the time of Hippocrates and was used to treat many diseases. Ancient Greeks and Romans used it to decrease high body temperature.
Beetroot contains magnesium, vitamin, chlorine, saponins, betaine, flavonoids, iodine, zinc, calcium, sodium and natural nitrites. Chlorine in beetroot has hypoallergenic property and helps in cleaning of the kidneys, gall bladder and lymph.
Beetroot has healing properties in 15 diseases among which: anemia, atherosclerosis, hypertension, diabetes, helps in diseases connected to the thyroid gland, improves memory and sleep, helps in the period of menopause and strengthens the immunity.
One of the huge benefits of beet juice is that research shows the beet to be cancer-preventive. The betacyanin that beet juice contains, helps prevent the formation of cancerous tumors and also detoxifies the body of all harmful toxins.
Together with dissolving the bad calcium these beet juice benefits may be extremely effective in the prevention and possibly reversal of many types of cancer.
There has been research and success with leukemia, colon, lung and skin, liver, and spleen, breast, prostate and testicular cancer. This seems to be the case, even at a very low dose.
Prevents Birth Defects
100 grams of beet root provides 27% of the RDA for folic acid known to prevent various birth defects in babies.
Raw beet greens contain two carotenoids: lutein and zeaxanthin. Science reports them to be extremely beneficial for the eye – especially the retina. One of the benefits of beet juice (raw) is that you can absorb the carotenoids easily while maintaining the value – these carotenoids are easily destroyed when cooked.
The combination of iron (14% RDA) (a strong oxidant – allows oxygen in the blood) in combination with the antioxidants (127% RDA) (prevent from damage from oxidants) in beet, make iron in beets a valuable source of iron. Therefore, beet juice benefits anemia reversal. (To treat anemia, it is important to also have enough vitamin B12 which is found mostly in animal food and some sea algae e.g. (E3 Live and marine phytoplankton))
The betaine is one of the huge benefits of beet juice. It stimulates the function of liver cells and protects the liver and bile ducts. Beet fiber increased production of detoxifying enzymes in the liver (SOD, catalase, glutathione).
The only side-effect is that the urine becomes reddish in color when you consume greater quantities of beetroot, but that’s harmless.
