Full Spectrum CBD Oil is shown to have antioxidant properties. Couple that with Red Beetroot for a powerful force against free radicals, inflammation, tumors, cancer and dementia.
Betalains and phenolic compounds in red beetroot increase the resistance of low-density lipoproteins (LDL) to oxidation to prevent cancer and cardiovascular diseases by reducing the oxidative effect of free radicals on lipids. Beetroot juice may help to lower blood pressure and protect liver damage when included in the diet and consumption of beetroot-added bread has a positive effect on lowering blood pressure.
Beets promote apoptosis to kill cancer cells in research tests conducted on breast cancer patients.
Beetroot has the potential to improve cerebrovascular blood flow and challenge detriments in cognitive function. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) reveals that a high nitrate diet, such as beets, stimulates a substantial and preferential increase in frontal cortex perfusion, a region of the brain responsible for essential cognitive processes such as executive function, working memory and task-switching. It is important to note that the research testing included only young disease-free participants.
In a study with people in the 67-year-old range, a significant improvement in reaction time was noted. The research suggests that long term supplementation of beets is suspected to have positive impacts on cerebral blood flow.
My grandmother, for example, is a lifetime beet lover. She grew and canned her own beets for generations. She is a perky 103-year-old lady, with a sharp tongue and recalls events as far back as her own childhood.
In this photo she had recently fallen and had twenty-two stitches. She was getting up from her bed in the night to use the bathroom and slipped. She told her friend, “I yelled, I fell. Get in here!” That’s tenacity – at 103.
Because CBD Oil’s beneficial analytes can be destroyed by acidic enzymes, such as in citrus and especially grapefruit, beets are an ideal companion food. Beets boost the power of hemp!
Like hemp, when beets are processed under heat, precious analytes are altered, and some are destroyed. Fresh raw beets are best when consuming for betalain properties.
Red beetroot contains thirty betalains, constituting of eighteen betacyanins and twelve betaxanthins. Beetroot peel has the highest betalain concentration. Betalains are water-soluble, nitrogen-containing natural pigments.
The study of Lee, Wettasinghe, Bolling, Ji, and Parkin (2005) demonstrated the ability of betalains to induce quinine reductase – a potent detoxification enzyme associated with cancer chemoprevention. Eat beets long before chemotherapy, during, and after.
Consult a physician.
In harvesting there is exposure to sunlight which causes decarboxylation. The peeling has the largest quantity of betacyanins compared to the inner rings of the red beetroot. There are many choices in shopping for beet products, including beet juice, canned beets, cooked beets in shrink wrap and fresh. Ideally, organic fresh beets with the greens intact are best. The greens are yummy when lightly scalded with crushed salt and pepper or fresh in a salad.
A nice medicinal salad may include hemp seeds. The October 2018 research in “Nutraceutical Potential of Hemp (Cannabis Sativa L.) Seeds and Sprouts,” relays that hemps seed sprouts may prevent cell damage and slow cellular progression towards cancer. Add raw hemp for more ‘medicine.’ Freshly harvested cannabis only needs to have time to dry out, which is usually completed before it is sold, for maximum THCA and CBDA levels.
Note that fresh raw cannabis is best and has the most THCA. Raw cannabis that has been allowed to dry out, but not more than a year old, has a good amount of THCA. Raw cannabis that is lightly cooked, two minutes at 100 degrees, loses some THCA. Raw cannabis that is cooked, as in stir fried at temperatures up to 160 degrees, may have no THCA.
Data from research in the 2015 article, “Inhibition of Phosphatidylcholine-Specific Phospholipase C Interferes with Proliferation and Survival of Tumor Initiating Cells in Squamous Cell Carcinoma,” by Cecchetti, et al., suggests that the inhibition of PC-PLC activity may represent a new therapeutic approach to selectively target the most aggressive and tumor promoting sub-population of floating spheres originated from squamous cancer cells possessing different proliferative and stemness potential. The outer membrane of surface NK cells (our Natural Killer cells), is correlated with the membrane expression of phosphatidylcholine-specific phospholipase C (PC-PLC). Inhibition of PC-PLC is enacted by THCA – raw cannabis. This kills cancer cells.
Add raw beets, raw hemp seed and raw hemp greens for a ‘killer salad.’
Have a great day!
