The Power of Wheatgrass Powder with the Roots

Wheatgrass contains over eighty different minerals, is high in fiber, and averages 25% protein (more than meat, fish, eggs, beans or dairy products). It is also more concentrated in iron than spinach but, unlike spinach, contains little or no oxalic acid, which binds the useable calcium in the system and can leach calcium from teeth and bones.

Wheat grass has about as much magnesium as broccoli, brussel sprouts, beets and carrots. Magnesium is vital for muscle contraction and bowel health.

Potassium, ”the youth mineral”, which is plentiful in wheat grass, maintains mineral balance, tones the muscles, firms the skin, and promotes overall beauty. If you are on a calorie restricted eating plan for weight loss, you can have all the potassium you need if you use wheat grass, without all the calories from the potassium rich fruits such as bananas.
Wheat grass contains about the same amount of Vitamin C as citrus fruits, and more than common vegetables like tomatoes or potatoes. As you know, Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant crucial to the health of the skin, teeth, gums, muscles, and joints. 

Wheatgrass is rich in Vitamin A, which is essential for maintaining healthy eyes and skin, as well as supporting normal development and reproduction.
Antioxidant Vitamin E “protector of the heart” is a fat-soluble “fertility” vitamin, responsible for the healing of wounds and infections, and prevention of muscle degeneration.

Wheatgrass is a good source of calcium, which is essential for strong bones and teeth, in addition to acting as a buffer to restore balance to blood pH.

After reading about the abundance of different ingredients in wheatgrass, is it any wonder that a single packet of wheatgrass powder is equivalent to 17 pounds of choice vegetables?

Wheatgrass powder that includes the roots is more nutritious and has a milder taste than the wheatgrass powder from leaves only.

What is a SUPERFOOD?

A superfood is a whole food; that is also a raw food (nutrients are maintained), a food that is easily digestible and is especially nutritious.

A food that is rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes.   It is a food that aids in the prevention and elimination of disease, premature aging, and strengthens the immune system.

A superfood is NOT synthetic, NOT chemically altered; NOT cooked or highly processed, and is NOT a substitute for a well-balanced diet.

Why is it important to consume a superfood?

1). Soil depletion produces foods that do not contain enough quality nutrients.

2). Busy and stressful lifestyles raise our need for superior nutrition.

3). Proper nutrition is fundamental for health and healing.

In general, superfoods are beneficial for many health conditions.  Wheatgrass meets all the requirements of the superfood definition mentioned above.  Wheatgrass is a superfood that is also inexpensive and easy to acquire.

This wheatgrass powder comes in a single serving, convenient packet.  The packet can be used either at home or carried with you while traveling.   Our powder is 100% wheatgrass, with nothing added and with nothing removed.  The cold drying process maintains all the nutrients, including enzymes that are vital to digestion, especially as a person ages.

As a powder mixed with water, it is easily digestible and assimilates into your blood stream in about 20 minutes.  You receive maximum benefits when wheatgrass is added to a whole foods, plant based diet.  So why wouldn’t you add wheatgrass to your diet?
