Benefits of Wheatgrass

Wheatgrass' deep green juice is abundant in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, protein and chlorophyll. It contains every amino acid, vitamin and mineral necessary for human nutrition, making it one of the few actual “whole foods.”


Wheatgrass is a nutrient-rich boost to your body. It's quick, easy and you'll probably notice the difference after a short period of time. Although about a 1oz. shot of wheatgrass is like having the equivalent goodness or nutrient level of 2.2 pounds of fresh leafy greens, vegetables or fruit you can never really substitute the benefits received from consuming a suitable amount and variety of fresh fruits and vegetables.


Containing 70% chlorophyll, wheatgrass juice increases the body’s production of red blood cells (hemoglobin). This helps to normalize high blood pressure and stimulates healthy tissue-cell growth. Chlorophyll also has the ability to break down poisonous carbon dioxide which allows more absorption of oxygen into the bloodstream.


Wheatgrass juice also contains enzymes which help in the digestion of nutrients, and abscisic acid, which is known for its anti-tumor properties. Is it a miracle? Perhaps. Most of the foods we eat today lack vitality. They contain preservatives, pesticides and hormones. Foods are often processed or overcooked, which destroys most of their nutritional properties.


Since wheatgrass juice is raw, drinking it gives us the vitamins, minerals and enzymes we need in one of the freshest and most natural forms available. It is quite simply one of the healthiest things you can put in your body.

A Natural Cleanser


Every day our bodies accumulate internal waste and harmful toxins from eating processed and chemically grown food, breathing polluted air and drinking impure water. If we don’t rid the body of these toxins they can cause long term damage and disease. One of the fastest and surest ways to cleanse our bodies of environmental pollutants is wheatgrass juice.


Its high levels of enzymes and amino acids work like a natural detergent to detoxify the liver, eliminate toxic heavy metals from the blood stream, rid the body of waste matter and help to strengthen the body’s immune system. This allows valuable nutrients to then be distributed more efficiently throughout the body, along with stimulating healthy tissue cell growth.


Wheatgrass juice also has a dilating effect on the body’s blood vessels which allows blood to flow more easily. Basically it’s like a daily grease and oil change for your body enabling it to operate at an optimal level in a highly oxygenated environment.
