Different people respond to wheat grass differently, based on dietary history, metabolism, body type, and lifestyle. The number 1 response we get from our customers is that our wheat grass boosted their energy level. Others experience heightened immune system function, faster recovery from exercise, greater endurance before fatigue sets in, better sleep, weight loss, better regulated bowel movements, clearer skin, stronger nails, shinier hair, and reduced chronic symptoms of such ailments as arthritis, diabetes, acid reflux, anemia, and others.
Wheat grass has a high alkalizing effect, which helps restore the balance between acidity and alkalinity in our body. Most processed foods are acidic, and when we consume too many of them, the acidity-alkalinity balance is upset.
Our cells cannot effectively function if our body is out of balance. Prolonged acidity can lead to stress of our body’s cells and organs and ultimately may lead to illness and disease. Cleansing and detoxifying our body will balance the acidity-alkalinity pH resulting in rejuvenated cellular activity. After our body’s pH levels are balanced, you will notice an increase in energy, stamina and less need for sleep.
There is no debate that consuming dark leafy green vegetables is extremely beneficial for our health. Wheatgrass offers one of the most potent sources of dark green leafy vegetables in a convenient way that aligns with today’s busy lifestyles. There have been hundreds of government and private studies that suggest an increase in consumption of green vegetables may reduce occurrence of cancer and disease, and lead to fewer health problems. Given that over 90% of us fall short of getting 5 servings of vegetables every day, wheatgrass offers an easier and effective way to meet this goal. One of our wheatgrass sachet has the equivalent nutrients of 17 lbs. of vegetables.
Dehydrated cereal grass has been a popular food supplement since the 1930’s. Before synthetic vitamin supplements were available, people took cereal grass tablets. Doctors gave cereal grass tablets to patients with nutrient deficiencies or for specific conditions.
There is a good chance it will. Not only does wheat grass give support to nutritional deficiencies, it also eliminates waste that clogs your blood, cells, tissues and organs.
Ann Wigmore, author of the Wheat Grass Book writes; “Each of us is the keeper of ten trillion little batteries called cells. Like flashlight batteries, our cells hold a charge of electricity. In order for this charge to be strong and steady we need to have a steady supply of proper nutrients… With the addition of wheatgrass and raw foods to your diet, your cells will store a maximum electrical charge, and you will have plenty of energy.”
Most likely you can eat wheat grass. Wheat allergies are usually a reaction to the gluten found in the wheat berry. Wheatgrass is a vegetable, cut before the wheat plant forms the grain (berry). Our Wheatgrass has no gluten. In fact, many customers have found consuming wheat grass actually helps with allergies since the body needs all the nutrients it can get to combat allergens. It’s always recommended that you check with your doctor/allergist or nutritionist before adding anything new to your diet.
Our modern diet consists of an abundance of processed foods, including junk food that typically contains sugars or artificial sweeteners. Consequently, our taste buds are not accustomed to eating cereal grasses. Many people find they don’t like the taste the first few times they try wheat grass. These same people usually find that after taking it for a week they actually begin to crave the nutritious taste of wheat grass. If you still don’t care for the taste, we suggest mixing it with your favorite juice or smoothie…making it difficult to taste the wheat grass at all. After taking it for a few weeks, our customers also report craving sweets less, eating healthier and feeling healthier.
How is chlorophyll in Wheatgrass good for the blood?
In the early 1920’s, the similarity between hemoglobin and chlorophyll was demonstrated. Hemoglobin is the substance in the blood which is responsible for carrying oxygen. Many of the components, which build and sustain the essential elements in the blood, are also found in foods high in chlorophyll. A relationship exists between the process of respiration in humans and animals, and the process of photosynthesis in plants. The Wheatgrass absorbs and synthesis’s the nutrients vitamin K, vitamin C, folic acid, vitamin B6, iron, calcium and protein, all of which are vital to the generation and utilization of hemoglobin in humans.
In what other ways is chlorophyll beneficial to us?
Scientists have found chlorophyll to be effective in detoxification, deodorizing and in healing of wounds. In the 1950’s many products were available using chlorophyll as a deodorizing agent – toilet paper, nappies, chewing gum and shoe liners. In 1980, Dr Lai at the University of Texas Medical Center, found extracts of Wheatgrass and green vegetables inhibited the effects of two carcinogens. He noted that the more chlorophyll in the vegetables the greater the protection. Spector and Calloway in 1959 demonstrated that green vegetables provide protection from radiation damage in test animals. Chlorophyll limits the growth of germs by providing an environment which interferes with their growth. Chlorophyll heals wounds by stimulating the repair of damaged tissues by inhibiting the growth of bacteria. Chlorophyll decreases swelling, has been shown to be effective in healing peptic ulcers and promoting bowel regularity.
Start with 1 sachet and see what suits you best. If you take too much too soon, you may start to have detoxification symptoms i.e. headaches and nausea etc. If that occurs simply reduce your intake for a couple of days then increase slowly.
Unfortunately, commercially produced fruit and vegetables are grown using pesticides, fungicides, insecticides and artificial fertilizers’. The soils they are grown in are often mineral deficient. Our wheatgrass is 100% organic and uses no artificial chemicals, preservatives or other ingredients in the growing process. All processes from seed to shelf are closely monitored and ISO 9000 certified to ensure the best quality.
Absolutely! We like to answer that question by asking ‘Is it good to eat kale, broccoli or spinach while you are pregnant?’ Our wheat grass is also a whole-food, green leafy vegetable. It is very important to get the best nutrition possible when you are pregnant. Not only for yourself, but of course for your baby. Nearly every doctor or nutritionist will attest that eating vibrant fruits and vegetables everyday is good for your health, especially when you are pregnant.
The fiber and naturally occurring digestive enzymes really help with constipation. Wheatgrass is a good source of folic acid and other naturally occurring vitamins and minerals that your body and baby need more than ever when you are pregnant. Best of all, it is a green leafy vegetable…so you are getting your quota of greens everyday.
We recommend taking wheatgrass first thing in the morning to jump start your day. It can however, be taken any time. Many people take it about an hour before a meal with water or juice. This allows their body to take full advantage of the nutrients it needs without competing with other foods. Furthermore, since the dehydrated grass expands, many find they don’t eat as much at meal time. Some report losing weight, while feeling healthier.
