Many of us have heard of this little miracle before, but how many of us are actually know the facts, truths, myths and importance of natures finest medicine.
Let me share my love of this super green juice with you!
First off, why wheatgrass? While sitting here trying to put together all the facts with my thoughts on this superfood, I don't know where to begin! It's that beneficial. Wheatgrass is a powerful concentrated liquid nutrient. Two ounces of wheatgrass juice has the nutritional equivalent of five pounds of the best raw organic vegetables combined! With twice the amount of Vitamin A as carrots and higher amounts of Vitamin C than oranges, it also contains the full spectrum of B vitamins, as well as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium and potassium in a balanced ratio. Wheatgrass is a complete source of protein, supplying you with all the the essential amino acids, 20% of total calories coming from protein, and more.
In addition to all this overflow therapeutic dosages of vitamins, mineral, antioxidants, enzymes, and phytonutrients, wheatgrass is also a powerful detoxifier, especially of the liver and blood. It helps neturalize toxins and environmental pollutants in the body, getting all that icky stuff out that you just can't control on a day-to-day basis! Wheatgrass can do this because of the beneficial enzymes it contains that help protect us from carcinogens, helping us lessen the effects of radiation and toxins being digested into the body.
You're really cleaning your body from head to toe, inside and out, of any heavy metals, pollutants, and other toxins that may be build up and stored in the body's tissues and organs.
So when can we start taking this beautiful living juice? We recommend is at least once a day, taken always undiluted and on an empty stomach to absorb all the nutrients more efficiently. The juice must be consumed fresh-within 15 minutes of juicing for best results. But not to worry! Nowadays, Juice Bars and local organic markets, have made it easily accesible for you, selling freshly juiced shots by the ounce! We recommend 2 ounces at a time, twice a day if you can!
"When wheatgrass is consumed fresh it is a living food and has bio-electricity. This high vibration energy is literally the life force within the living juice. This resource of life-force energy can potentially unleash powerful renewing vibrations and greater connectivity to one’s inner being. These powerful nutrients can also prevent DNA destruction and help protect us from the ongoing effects of pre-mature aging and cellular breakdown. Recent research shows that only living foods and juices can restore the electrical charge between the capillaries and the cell walls which boosts the immune system. When it is fresh, wheatgrass juice is the king of living juices."
Among other things wheatgrass juice is particularly high in chlorophyll. Wheatgrass cleanses and builds the blood due to its high content of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is the first product of light and therefore contains more healing properties than any other element. All life on this planet comes from the sun. Only green plants can transform the sun’s energy into chlorophyll through the process of photosynthesis. . Chlorophyll is known as the ‘life-blood’ of the plants. This important phytonutrient is what your cells need to heal and to thrive. Drinking wheatgrass juice is like drinking liquid sunshine.
Chlorophyll carries high levels of oxygen (among other things) which is especially powerful in assisting the body to restore abnormalities. The high content of oxygen in chlorophyll helps deliver more oxygen to the blood. We see red blood cell counts rise and blood oxygen levels rise very quickly with the regular drinking of wheatgrass juice and using wheatgrass juice implants. This marker is a key indicator of health recovery for abnormalities, ailments and disease. Oxygen is vital to many body processes, especially for the brain which uses 25% of the oxygen supply. This high oxygen helps support a healthy body.
