With 70% chlorophyll, wheatgrass juice is known as ” the green blood” and the best source of chlorophyll available today. Chlorophyll can be extracted from many plants, but wheatgrass is superior because it has been found to have over 100 building blocks needed by the human body. Some of these building blocks consist of minerals, vitamins, amino acids, fiber, over 1oo enzymes and much more. Rich in oxygen, wheatgrass promotes the oxygenation of cells, beneficial to the brain and all body tissue functions and provides better blood circulation. According to Dr. Otto Warburg, Nobel Laureate, cancer cells cannot survive in an oxygen rich environment.
The chlorophyll molecules in wheatgrass closely resemble that of the hemin molecule, the pigment which combines with protein to form hemoglobin which intensifies blood production, improves it’s quality and aids in prevention of anemia.
Wheatgrass juice also contains SOD (super-oxide dismutase), a copper containing protein found in mature red blood cells. This enzyme decomposes superoxide radicals in the body into a more manageable form thereby helping to slow down the aging process.
When compared to carrot juice, other fruits and vegetables, wheatgrass is a superior detoxification agent. It is a quick energy source, using very little of the body’s energy to extract the nutrients and is assimilated into the blood stream in 20 minutes or less.
Best Organic Wheatgrass is unique in that it includes the leaves and the roots, producing a milder taste and is more nutritious than when just using the leaves.
