Beetroot is used as a traditional treatment to help treat leukemia. It contains an amino acid called betaine which has anti-cancer properties. Red beet therapy, which involves consuming approximately a kilo of raw, mashed beets ever day, has been favourably reported to help cases of leukemia and tumours. Beet juice can also help inhibit the development of colon and stomach cancer.
When eaten regularly, beetroot can also help prevent certain oxidative as well as stress related disorders.

The fibre in beetroot helps reduce cholesterol by 30 to 40%, and helps normalise blood pressure and maintains the elasticity of arteries. The iron content of beetroot makes it a powerful blood cleanser.

During pregnancy
Beetroot is recommended for pregnant women because it contains folic acid that can help lower the risk of neural tube defects in newborn infants.
Beetroots can also help with problems such as headaches, toothaches, dysentery, skin problems and menstrual problems.
