Beetroot is famous for the great amount of healthy nutrients that it consists. It is scientifically proven to be one of the best natural cures for cancer.
Beetroot can be used as chemotherapy. Namely, many scientific studies have shown unbelievable results in patients suffering from cancer who have been treated with high concentration of beetroot.
This root vegetable with red color, can take various forms. It contains great amount of iron, potassium, calcium, sulfur, minerals, phosphorus, magnesium and iodine.
Scientific evidence reveals anticancer power of beetroot
One of the most popular, frequently mentioned studies dealing with the benefits of beetroot juice in the fight against cancer was led by Dr. Aleksandar Ferenci at the Department of Internal Medicine in Hungary, at the end of 1950. Using nothing but raw, red beets, the doctor was able to notice the incredible results of the recovery of cancer patients. Decades later, his work was reprinted by the Australian International Clinical Nutrition Review.
In yet another study, people who suffered from cervical cancer and prostate cancer are taken to hospital. One man who suffered from prostate cancer got treated with beets but the doctor wasn’t sure whether the patient will withstand the treatment.
The patient was bedridden with a catheter, but only a month later the catheter was removed and very soon after that the patient started walking, eating normally and gaining weight. He continued gaining weight and after three month he gained more than 10 kg.
It’s interesting that many other foods which contain high amounts of iron have the same effect. This probably means that the secret anti-cancer properties may lay in beetroot’s red color. Dr S. Schmidt and Dr. Ferenci together believe that the crucial elements are rubidium and cesium.
The main difference between the beets roots and the other foods which contain iron is that the human body absorbs the iron from the beets more easily than the iron from any other food. Many researchers believe that root beets have some kind of catalyst which helps the body to absorb the iron more easily.
What is the best way of consuming beetroot that will help you get rid of cancer?
The biggest advantage of beetroot juice to fight cancer is that you do not have to worry about the side effects of its consumption. Beetroot is available in different shapes, though the powder of beetroot is probably the most popular and can be found in most health food stores.
We suggest consuming one tbsp of beetroot powder in 250 ml juice or water in the morning on empty stomach. If you already suffer from cancer we recommend using 2 or 3 tbsp of beetroot every day. Just don’t forget to eat something first and never consume it on empty stomach.
