Beets Fight Cancer But Raw Is Best

Author: Ian McAllister

http://healthforu.info/health/healthfood/Beets-Health-Food.php

Beets are a great health food. They fight cancer so well that you have to be cautious. They also fight birth defects and vision problems.

Note: No two beets are the same and no two people are the same, so this page is only about most people and most beets.

Beets first appeared in the coasts of the Mediterranean, and were grown for their greens, as Swiss Chard still is. A couple of thousand years ago they also started eating the roots. Now many gardeners cook up some beet greens and some beetroot in the same meal.

Cooking

Health benefits such as curing cancer are greatly reduced by cooking. If you really must cook them, leave 1inch-2inch (up to 50mm) of stem attached and leave dangling roots intact when cooking fresh beets to prevent loss of color. The skins slip off easily after cooking. The cooked beets are excellent served as a hot vegetable or cooled and added to salads.

Better still, eat them raw without peeling them. You might be surprised by how sweet they are when raw, but remember that sugar-beet is a major source of refined sugar. Grate them for a salad, or blend them into a fruit and vegetable drink.

Red-violet (betacyanin) and yellow (betaxanthin) pigments, which are located in the cytoplasm of plant tissue, only occur in about 10 plant families (and always independent of anthocyanins). 1/2 cup of cooked beet greens contain 3672 IU Vitamin A. Half a cup of cooked beet root contains only 11 IU.

Use them to find out if you are eating too much fiber. If your stools bleed red in less than 12 hours that tells you that your food is going through you too fast to digest everything properly.

Beet is a good example of the harm done by refining. The sugar in sugar beet is good for you, but refined beet sugar is bad for you. Beet didn't get into the top 20 of nutritious fruit and vegetables but the beet greens did.

Cancer

Dr Ferenczi in Csoma hospital in Hungary has been using raw beets to cure cancer, and nothing else since the late 1950s. The only problem is the same one as you get with heroic injections of vitamin C. If you eat too much raw beetroot, it can kill the cancer faster than your liver can dispose of the waste products. 

So if you have a large cancer, start with small quantities of beetroot, and gradually increase them until you start to feel unwell, and then back off the amount. You may get a fever if your liver is being asked to work too hard.

You could probably get the same results with vitamin C injections, but having to increase the quantity gradually would mean multiple injections, whereas raw beetroot tastes good.

You can buy dried beetroot powder in many health food shops. That allows you to use large quantities, so remember the precaution.

Birth Defects

The folate in beets fights birth defects, but there are probably better sources of folate. However if you enjoy beets the folate is an addedorus

  • 325 mg potassium (compares well with bananas)
  • 109 micrograms folate (that is quite good)
  • 33 IU vitamin A
  • 20 micrograms beta carotene
  • Compare that with 100 g raw beetroot greens, which are more watery. Look especially at the vitamins.

    • 91g water
    • 4.33g carbohydrate
    • 3.7g fibre (even though there is more water that in the root)
    • 117mg calcium (that's better)
    • 70mg magnesium
    • 41mg phosphorus
    • 762mg potassium (compares even better with bananas)
    • vitamin C 30mg
    • 15mcg folate
    • 6326 IU vitamin A (steam lightly to kill as few vitamins as possible)
    • 400mcg vitamin K
    • 3794mcg beta carotene (I don't know why I mentioned it in the roots)
    • 1503mcg Lutein zeaxanthin

    Beetroot Juice Found to Boost Stamina

    Health & Wellness

    Beetroot juice boosts stamina by making muscles more fuel-efficient, scientists have found.

    Last year the same researchers reported that the juice can increase physical endurance. The study focused on men aged 19 to 38 cycling on exercise bikes. Drinking 500ml of beetroot juice a day for a week enabled them to cycle 16 per cent longer before getting tired out. Now the scientists believe they understand how the beetroot boost works.

    The new research showed beetroot juice doubled the amount of nitrate in the blood of volunteers, and reduced the rate at which muscles used their main source of energy. Beetroot juice helped muscles work more efficiently and lowered their oxygen uptake.

    The scientists, from the University of Exeter's School of Sport and Health Sciences, believe nitrate from beetroot juice leads to increased levels of nitric oxide in the body, which affects a range of functions including blood flow, hormone levels and cell signalling. The findings are published in the Journal of Applied Physiology.

    The study's leader, Professor Andy Jones, said:

    "We have seen growing interest in the benefits of drinking beetroot juice in the world of professional sport and I expect this study to attract even more attention from athletes."

    Beet Borscht: An Extremely Effective Liver Cleanser
    Posted on June 1, 2012 by 1healthcoach

    Have you ever heard of the Borscht Belt? It was a very popular resort area in the Catskill Mountains that is the home to numerous hotel, motels and resorts that were visited during the last century by those whose ancestry was from Eastern and Central Europe, Western Russia, and especially the Ukraine. It was named after Borscht, a beet-based soup/stew that has been eaten by those cultures for the past few centuries, especially the Ukraine.

    The Health Coach grew up not far from the Borscht Belt and traveled to and through the region as a child. He also lived in Sullivan County, NY for a couple of years, which is in the very heart of the Borscht Belt.

    Quite coincidentally, he also grew up in an area that boasted one of the largest Ukrainian Churches in the world, and therefore was populated by a large number of Ukrainians. He worked and played with them, and was always struck by their extraordinary strength, speed and robust health. Surely, these people must be doing something that the rest of us are not. And so they were.

    It appears that borscht originated in the Ukraine and was the home to many a varied recipe utilizing the plentiful beets that grew well in their mineral-rich soil. Whether a borscht recipe is of Polish or Russian[1] or German descent, all roads lead back to the Ukraine and should always contain beets. Where cabbage and potatoes and tomatoes are also used, it is always the beet that makes the borscht. 

    Why all the history? When a region of the country is named after a food recipe, it must have great significance. Borscht was such an important part of the diet of an entire culture that they brought it from the old country and kept it alive in their new home. But why?
    Because beets are an extremely effective food for detoxifying the liver. And borscht is a great way to receive these detox benefits in a highly nutritional stew. Borscht has been highly valued as an essential meal for those who recognized its capacity to produce positive effects on the digestive process that no other foods could produce.

    Because the combination of ingredients found within any recipe of borscht can increase its detoxifying capacity or tone it down. Therefore, we recommend staying true to the original beet-heavy recipe since it is the beet that functions as a roto-rooter for the liver.

    In this day and age with such an ‘epidemic’ of liver congestion going on, keeping the liver as decongested as possible has become a necessity if one is to enjoy good health. The average American liver contains hundreds of gallstones. Yes, that’s right hundreds; some even have thousands of tiny little gall-pebbles which clog up the main bile duct and smaller bile ducts, impeding the flow of bile. This predicament has has quite negative effects on the entire digestive process. It has also created a very conducive environment for many of the modern-day liver diseases to evolve.

    The liver is the major detoxification organ of the body and therefore ought to be kept free and clear of gallstones. Our diet can contribute to gallstone formation, as well as gallstone dissolution and movement out of the liver and gallbladder. Beets in the diet on a regular basis are perhaps the best way to promote the movement of gallstones toward the bile ducts and out of the liver. Even after you perform a liver/gallbladder flush, eating beets can be instrumental in mobilizing gallstones from the three corners of the liver so that they may appropriately exit this vital organ.

    What is it that make beets such a powerful liver detoxifier?

    “Beets and beet tops are the richest source of betaine, a natural liver detoxifier and bile thinner.” By thinning the bile, the flow is facilitated which serves to greatly relieve low grade constipation, which plagues much of sedentary Western society. As a root vegetable, beets are also known to increase the regularity of bowel movements which allows the passed gallstones to exit the GI tract.

    There are many other health benefits which come from eating beets on a regular basis. Here’s a nice list which will motivate those who might have been turned off by canned beets as a kid.

    Eight Health Benefits

    (1) Beet juice is alkaline and helps stave off acidosis, a harbinger of all diseases.

    (2) Beet juice helps stimulate liver cells and cleanse and protect bile ducts. It also helps relieve the kidneys of stress to help cure gout. It also helps relieve constipation.

    (3) Beets help cleanse the blood and create more red blood cells. They are useful for treating and curing anemia. Heavy daily beet consumption has even been used to treat leukemia and other cancers. With normal consumption, one can benefit from beets’ anti-carcinogenic properties.

    (4) Red beets and their leaves are a high source of folate, which is the natural base of folic acid. Folate helps build tissue and red blood cells. Folic acid from folate is more beneficial for pregnant women than folic acid synthetically derived. It is healthier long term to depend on folate rather than to use folic acid supplements. Unfortunately, the two terms are misused interchangeably.

    (5) Beets contain lots of lutein and zeaxanthin, both of which help prevent or even cure macular degeneration and other age related eye issues.

    (6) Beets are a high source of phytonutrients called betalains. Beet betalains provide strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support.

    (7) Beets help lower blood pressure, maintain blood vessel elasticity, and even help eliminate varicose veins.

    (8) Beets are high in fiber, potassium, magnesium, niacin, calcium, iron, and biotin.[2]

    Caveat to those with sugar problems:

    Make no mistake – beets are sweet. So sweet that beet sugar is manufactured from white sugar beets. Therefore, for those with any kind of sugar problems, the best way to take them is in the form of a borscht. Juicing beets and then mixing them with carrot or apple juice is a big mistake. Too much sweet, too fast, and in a highly concentrated form. It’s not really a good practice for anyone to drink too much beet juice on a regular basis. Here is a factoid about sugar beets:

    “Sugar can represent between 15% and 21% of the sugar beet root’s total weight; however, depending on the cultivar and growing conditions, the sugar content can vary from 12 to above 20 percent.”[3]

    Now you can see why borscht is such a great way of getting your weekly beets. When the recipe includes cabbage and celery, onion and garlic, and dill and parsnip, the sweetness of the beet is both toned down and quite savory.

    In case you’re wondering whether you ought to pay more attention to your liver, here’s a great quiz from our holistic friends at AltMedAngel.com.

    Modern Health Concepts
    “In today’s drugs-and-surgery approach to health care, the old concepts related to liver health are all but forgotten. In the holistic camp however, the liver is paid close attention. 

    The following is a little quiz to help you judge the health of your liver. If you answer yes to five or more of the following questions, it’s important that you pay more attention to liver health.

    1. You suffer from dry, brittle nails and/or chronically painful joints.
    2. You have persistent skin problems (especially psoriasis).
    3. You have a habitual bitter taste in your mouth.
    4. You have constant dry eyes (which are not caused by prescription drugs).
    5. You have menstrual problems.
    6. You have chronic indigestion when eating fatty foods.
    7. You have burning feet.
    8. You often have a generalized queazy feeling.
    9. Your stools are perpetually light-colored.
    10. You have periodic bad dreams or nightmares.
    11. You have a history of gallbladder attacks or gallstones.”[4]

    On the emotional side, if you experience lots of anger, or fits of rage, or extreme frustration or general impatience, chances are the liver is in much need of a detox. The liver is well known for being the repository of certain emotional energies, especially anger. When the liver is clogged with toxins and congested with gallstones, how can you feel good? All the normal detoxification pathways are operating at low efficiency and all the bad stuff starts to back up.

    If you’ve answered “yes” to a majority of the questions above, it’s time to also consider doing a gallbladder/liver flush.

    Here’s our version of the Hulda Clark Liver Cleanse & Gallbladder Flush protocol. It has proven to be an easy and very effective way to release the gallstones which are not passing normally out of the liver or gallbladder.

    Liver and Gallbladder Flush

    Regardless of how you choose to address your liver health, both borscht and beets are foods which ought to be included in your diet whenever you can work them in to your menus. Truly, they are nature’s way of assisting the human body in off-loading all the accumulated toxins, waste products and other harmful substances which the human body wants to be rid of.

    May you enjoy great health,
