Organic Wheatgrass has poetically been called ‘Nectar of Rejuvenation & Plasma of Youth” and is what health buffs call “complete food.”
Look around and you will see wheat grass popping up just about everywhere. It is offered in health bars as fresh juice, added to salads, smoothies and many other food products, or can be bought in tablets, capsules and powders. Athletes and health conscious people have used the fresh juice and its dry products for many years now, with the general public slowly but surely warming to it too.
Dehydrated wheat grass is convenient, nutritious, and safe for anyone looking to improve their physical and mental well-being.
If you are looking for a health elixir… wheat grass is “it”!
People in fast paced societies like ours often eat very little, or none at all, of deep green, leafy vegetables. And those of us who eat them regularly don’t usually consume anywhere near the amount we need for balanced healthy living, unless we supplement our diet with nutrient concentrated green foods like wheat grass.
Well, maybe if you eat enough green leafy vegetables you’d see some similar health giving effects, but you would need to eat truckloads of raw (not cooked) green vegetables.
Compared to the costs of other vegetables, wheat grass is a real bargain,as well as being an extremely good way to make sure you obtain enough of the nutrients and fiber provided by deep green, leafy vegetables in your diet. And a major advantage, which it has over most vegetables, is that it can easily be grown organically.
What is Wheat Grass?
Dr. Earp-Thomas said, “Wheat is the king of all grain foods”.
Wheat grass is grown from the Red Wheat Berry, a special strain of wheat that produces high concentrations of chlorophyll, antioxidants, active enzymes, vitamins, vital amino acids and other nutrients – as such, it is one of the most nutrient dense substances on Earth.
It is packed with essential fatty acids and chlorophyll. A study done in 1930 found that animals could survive on grass alone, but failed on other healthy vegetables like carrots and spinach!
Wheat grass is a lush green plant that will eventually become a shaft of wheat, produce grain and be harvested. It has a completely different structure when it is still in the grass stage. At only seven days, the blade is 6 to 9 inches tall and can be cut, juiced and then dried into leaf powder, which can be tableted or capsulated.
The result is a product abundant with vitamins, minerals, enzymes, chlorophyll and vital life energy.
