Eat Your Greens

New Scientific Evidence Supports the Need to Eat Your Greens

Make Sure you are Feeding YOUR ‘Green’ Gene!

Eating your greens may be even more important than previously thought, with the discovery that an immune cell population essential for intestinal health could be controlled by leafy greens in your diet.

The immune cells, named innate lymphoid cells (ILCs), are found in the lining of the digestive system and protect the body from ‘bad’ bacteria in the intestine. They are also believed to play an important role in controlling food allergies, inflammatory diseases and obesity, and may even prevent the development of bowel cancers.

Dr Gabrielle Belz, Ms Lucie Rankin, Dr Joanna Groom and colleagues from the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute’s Molecular Immunology division have discovered the gene T-bet is essential for producing a population of these critical immune cells and that the gene responds to signals in the food we eat.

If you’re one of the many who fail to eat their five daily recommended servings of vegetables, you need to consider taking Best Organic Wheatgrass. Wheatgrass is the best source of greens over all other vegetables because of the high alkaline content.  It is for this reason it is called the “King of Alkaline Food”.  Your body fights disease and heals itself when it is alkaline.  So, you can see why wheatgrass is important. Nobel Laureate Dr Otto Warburg made the discovery in 1920’s that cancer cannot live in an alkaline environment.

Best Organic Wheatgrass powder is the only powder on the market that includes the roots with the leaves.  We are able to include the roots because our wheatgrass is grown aeroponically therefore eliminating pollutants, fungus and bacteria that are in the soil. When the roots and leaves are combined it creates a milder taste over all other wheat grasses. The roots and leaves combined provide higher nutritional value. A cold-dried process is used to maintain the live enzymes and nutrients in the wheatgrass. The single serving packets are convenient to take to the gym, shopping, wherever you go, for when you need that extra boost of energy.

Get your healthy on with Best Organic Wheatgrass!
