What Each Ingredient Does
1. Beetroot (Key Ingredient)
Drinking beet juice can actually lower your blood pressure just a few hours after ingestion (1). Beetroot extract was even found to treat human pancreatic, breast, and prostate cancers (2).
According to NaturalHealth365.com this is how beet juice helps to kill cancer cells,
“Beet juice helps to detoxify as well as protect our cells with much needed (easily absorbed) nutrients and oxygen.
Some breakthrough studies have shown that the same characteristics in beets – which help athletes perform better – help cancer patients reverse their condition. The link between oxygen and cancer is well known and beets can increase oxygen, within the blood, by 400 percent while helping to eliminate waste products.
The Ferenczi’s Effect is named after the man that discovered a tumor-inhibiting effect of a flavonoid (betazyane) in beets – which proved that beets have the ability to increase oxygen intake within the cells, while protecting the levels of vitamin C – another great anti-cancer nutrient.
One of the anti-tumor effects of beetroot juice is explained by its high iron content, designed to regenerate red blood corpuscles that supply cancer cells with more oxygen. This higher oxygen content improves cellular respiration – which helps to kill cancer cells.
Beets are considered one of be best cleansing foods, and their main accomplishment in that regard is they detoxify the kidneys, liver and lymph system – while promoting the regeneration of new (healthy) cells.”
