Beet Juice and Detoxifier

      I have a cheap-o juicer, in fact it was free! ha,ha!!! Its kind of a pain in the ass and I can't wait to get a nice one, but that isn't what this is about. LOL!
      Do you love to juice? I do! That's why I deal with this one until I get my new one! ha,ha,ha, LMAO!
   Anyway~~~ I came up with this great recipe a few years ago. its a great detox, liver and kidney cleaner. Amend to it any way you want but it is sweet and you will feel every cell in your body soak up the goodness! ha,ha!!! This is the recipe in more to less of amount that I use. It takes a lot of parsley to make a little juice.
           Don't let it scare you when you do your regular business the next morning! ; )
      Below are all the benefits and cancer studies:  
                                 Most of the nutrient value of beets lies in the layer just underneath the skin, so simply wash this carefully so that it doesn't "bleed" and juice those beets. A beet is packed with nutrients, and contains vitamins C and A in the form of beta-carotene, the B-complex vitamins, thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2) and niacin (B3). Beets are also rich in the minerals calcium, for healthy bones, magnesium, phosphorous and potassium and also has lesser amounts of sodium, zinc, copper, manganese and selenium.
For centuries beetroot have been used as a cancer remedy in Europe and modern research has found that the selenium and other minerals found in this root vegetable have antioxidant properties which seem to particularly decrease the risks of breast, prostate, lung and colorectal cancers.
Beetroot juice is also thought to be cardio-vascular protective and can help to lower high blood pressure. A study undertaken by researchers at the University of Exeter, UK has shown that beetroot juice can help athletes as they need less oxygen to perform and this means there is less stress on the heart during exercise. It was found that the juice lessened fatigue and improved stamina but it isn't only athletes who can benefits from drinking it. It improves blood circulation and given the amounts of potassium in the juice, so you are less likely to have muscle cramps and cardio-vascular irregularities.
The trace mineral selenium is though to improve menopausal symptoms including hot flashes or flushes, and as it mimics the action of insulin is useful for diabetics, perhaps helping to prevent secondary symptoms such as macular degeneration and cataracts forming in the eyes. Selenium is also necessary for healthy hair and skin and is believed to slow the skin's ageing process, helping it retain its youthful elasticity. It also helps to increase the quality of a man's sperm and its production and also to help male potency. Perhaps this is why this vegetable was regarded as an aphrodisiac in ancient Greece and Rome. (They ate the green tops too as they are still eaten in the Mediterranean area.)
