Are You Losing Out On These Healthy Benefits?

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.

 

Are all green drinks the same?

glass and leaves1The nutritional status of a person is often thought to be the number one reason why some develop sickness and disease while others don’t. Our daily diet plays a key role in healthy aging and preventing obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and osteoporosis.
Only a small percentage of the population consumes the recommended intake of a variety of fruits and vegetables, providing vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, phytonutrients and other nutrients.
In humans phytonutrients can have a beneficial effect because of the positive biological responses they elicit, reducing the risk of chronic disease.
Green foods are associated with a decreased risk of chronic conditions. Green drinks are a staple among consumers of natural health products. Once driven by personal testimonies, belief in the health benefits of these drinks has been strengthened by scientific studies.
Wheatgrass drinks are one of those “super foods” that has a powerful combination of nutrients.
That being said there is a vast difference between green drinks.
Frozen juices are harvested with the juice being squeezed out of the leaves, dried and then frozen.
Best Organic Wheatgrass powder is “aeroponically” grown. A process used by NASA, that allows the use of the leaves and roots (the whole plant), not just the leaves as other do.  This is basically a sprouted plant at this point.   It is harvested using a cold drying process, thereby maintaining the enzymes. This is important in digesting our food.
Having the powder in single serving packets has the advantage of being able to take with you on trips, vacations, etc.. and not interrupting your regimen.
