For generations, Wheatgrass has been a foundational healing tonic in alternative medicine. Its many advocates claim seemingly countless benefits.
Add one serving (1 scoop) to your favorite dish or drink for a nutritious boost.
Wheatgrass shots are the most requested “add-ins” at juice bars nationwide – understandable considering how much nutrition they deliver.
Wheatgrass is considered to be the most healing of all grasses. It has more than 90 phytonutrients. It’s one of nature’s richest sources of vitamins A and C. When grown in organic soil, it has all of the known mineral elements and is rich in calcium, magnesium, selenium, phosphorus, iron, potassium, sulfur, sodium, B12, cobalt and zinc. It is high in chlorophyll adding additional pure green power.
Scientists at the University of Texas say Wheatgrass is exceptional in chlorophyll content. Chlorophyll is “bio-chemically similar” to blood and can support cardiovascular health. It helps purify blood, boost energy and reduce free-radical damage.
Wheatgrass’ high levels of enzymes and amino acids can work like a natural cleanser to detox the liver, eliminate toxic metals and slow down cellular aging. Many of these benefits are also due to its concentration of sun-activated chlorophyll.
Some say a shot of Wheatgrass equals more than a pound of fresh vegetables that are 100% biologically available. One ounce contains 103 vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids and oxygen-rich chlorophyll. Sounds like great health insurance to us.
Wheatgrass has long had advocates in Ayurvedic and Traditional Medicine. Thousands attest to its healing benefits. Studies show it may be beneficial for issues from diabetes to some cancers. For now, we believe in green grass for the greater good.
