Hey! Did you get a chance to check out my blog post about the woman who cured her terminal cancer by juicing 5 pounds of carrots daily? (which is equivalent to five 8oz. cups of juice). Click here to read the full story.
Although she used orange carrots to heal her body, she recommends that you try to find purple carrots whenever you can (I always find them in Trader Joe’s!). Why? Because purple carrots have SIX TIMES the amount of falcarinol found in their orange counterparts. Falcarinol is one of the active chemical compounds found in carrots that nature has created to destroy both fungus and cancer cells. So if you’re suffering from candida, this is important for you too!
Falcarinol is a compound in carrots, celery, parsley, and parsnips. Its purpose is to prevent fungi from attacking the vegetable’s roots. When ingested by humans, falcarinol prevents fungus from attacking our tissues and blood – and it has the added bonus of destroying cancer cells!
Dr. Kirsten Brandt from the University of Newcastle-on-Tyne has spent years investigating carrots and falcarinol. In many of her experiments, lab rats and mice were injected with carcinogens. Dr. Brandt found that, compared to mice or rats eating their normal diet, those fed either carrots or falcarinol developed a third fewer large tumors. Research in China has shown that men who ate carrots at least three times a week were 18% less likely to develop a tumour. Researchers at Harvard University found women who ate at least five carrots a week were nearly 2/3 less likely to have a stroke than those who ate them only once a month!
Purple carrots are the wild variety, and are therefore packed with a lot more of the bitter, medicinal compounds that produced such amazing results in the studies above. Purple carrots are even higher in antioxidants than orange carrots, and have been found to be antiviral, antiparasitic + antimicrobial!
Let me know if you’ve been able to find any in your area, and if so, where. I’m always on the hunt! xx
