Wheatgrass: Nature's Green Gold

Wheatgrass juice comes from young wheat, that would explain its peculiar and sweet aftertaste. Grains such as wheat, barley, rye, and oats, all produce a grass. When we plant wheat, we get wheatgrass. It is harvested just after 7 days and produces a deep green leafy vegetable rich in chlorophyll and nutrients. The juice extracted from the grass is one of the most complete and perfect foods on earth. Wheatgrass helps to increase a person's stamina, build healthy blood, cleanse the whole system, act as a digestive aid, reduce cravings to addictive substances, improve fertility, inhibit the growth of disease causing bacteria and the activity of cancer causing chemicals, and ease practically every physical and mental ailment you would expect to encounter, if not properly nourished. It has as much vitamin C as citrus fruits and is as high in vitamin A as dark leafy greens or carrots. Wheatgrass is an excellent source of B vitamins and contains vitamins E and K as well. Its a power house also containing calcium, iron, sodium, potassium, magnesium, and a variety of trace minerals, such as, selenium and zinc. Wheatgrass also contains all 8 amino acids which are the building blocks of protein. It is 70% chlorophyll, which is condensed sun energy and the most effective healer and body protector. Some people have a shot(1 oz.) a day, which is excellent. If you can only do a a couple of shots a week, that is fine too. Look forward to feeling and seeing all of the benefits of wheatgrass juice. It is not meant to take the place of any medical prescription that you are taking but, if you began to incorporate more healing foods into your diet, the less dependent you will be on them. Be well.....
