Wheat grass is part of the cereal grass family. Wheat grass is known as a “live food” or “living food”. It is a high-density storehouse packed with chlorophyll, amino acids, enzymes, minerals, and vitamins and is easily assimilated in the body. It is considered a super nutrient, the premier “green super food” of nature.
Our wheatgrass is grown aeroponically, which means it is not grown in soil. Indoor Organic Aeroponic Cultivation (IOAC) brings out the maximum nutrients in each plant, and is pollution free, mold free, and bacteria free through out the entire process. Because of its method of farming, our wheat grass contains both the blades and the roots, and it has more nutrients than fresh squeezed wheat grass! We are the only company in the world that includes the roots along with the blades. The roots contain 13 of the 17 amino acids and also contain several cancer fighting agents.
Why is the root of wheatgrass so important?
Nutrients Hidden Within the Roots of Wheatgrass
From the perspective of Chinese medicine, the leaves of wheatgrass have a cooling effect, whereas the roots produce a heating effect. Combining both characteristics neutralizes the effect produced by each individually.
From the scientific perspective, the root of wheatgrass is rich in nutrients, enzymes and active ingredients. Experiments shows that both roots and leaves contain many types of nutrients, which co-exist in synergistic proportion to form a balance and whole nutrition.
They facilitate the absorption of nutrients. Active ingredients found in the root of wheatgrass especially auxin, stimulate damaged cells to undergo cellular repair. Therefore, wheatgrass is the simplest and most convenient way to increase vigor and boost immunity for the physically frail. Our company is the only one that uses one pound of fresh wheatgrass leaves and roots in every packet.
