Why Sprouted Wheatgrass?

 

SLIDE-3    In 1920 Edmond Szekely classified sprouted seeds and baby greens as the most beneficial foods. And he recommended that they make up 25% of our daily food intake.   Calling them life-generating biogenic foods, he claimed they offered the strongest support for cell regeneration.

In his book “The pH Miracle”; Dr Robert Young says “Sprouts are full of vitamins, minerals and complete proteins, sprouts are just about the best food you can eat.  They are living plant foods that are biogenic–meaning they can transfer their life energy to you!  Seeds become more alkaline as they sprout.”

A healthy body is alkaline (i.e not acidic).  Biogenic foods have an alkalizing effect on the body.  Double Nobel Prize winner Dr Otto Warburg found growth of cancer cells were initiated by a lack of oxygen and these cells, along with viruses and bacteria, could not live in an alkaline and oxygen rich environment.

The supply of vitamins existing in seeds are increased by the sprouting biochemistry from 50% to 1300%.  This biochemistry modifies the array of minerals in sprouts so that they are in a chelated form which is more easily assimilated in the body.

Various factors, in our daily life,  transpire to create free radicals within our bodies.  Free radicals are highly unstable oxygen molecules needing an electron to stabilize their disorder.  By stealing electrons from healthy cells the causal effects of this are the breakdown of vital biological structures and the alteration of DNA.  Once this has occurred, the affected cell will only reproduce the altered version. Super foods are a powerful source of antioxidants (minerals, vitamins and enzymes) which assist in protecting against this damage.

Best Organic Wheatgrass is a sprouted super food, grown aeroponically (without soil, free from fungus and bacteria).  Those wheatgrass powders that are grown in soil do not have the advantages of Best Organic Wheatgrass. It is the only powder on the market that has the roots and the leaves.  The result is a milder taste and more nutrients.
