Our body has the ability to heal itself if provided proper nutrition, environment and exercise.  The beneficial nutrients naturally obtained from wheatgrass helps cleanse, alkalize and nourish the body.  Wheatgrass, a “whole food,”  has been used for its therapeutic value since ancient times.

The ancient Egyptians found the young leafy blades of wheat sacred and prized them for the affect on their health and vitality. The Book of Daniel in The Old Testament says that King Nebuchadnezzar (630-562 B.C.) ate only grasses for seven years. His mental clarity was restored, allowing him to again rule his kingdom.

It is well known that vitamins and minerals are more easily assimilated by the body when they occur naturally in whole foods as opposed to synthetic vitamins. In other words your body can’t process and utilize most of the unnatural combinations of nutrients in synthetic multiple vitamin.
We know from research and thousands of testimonials that wheat grass nutrients are easily absorbed and your body processes them efficiently.  Regular consumption of wheatgrass has a positive affect on your health.  Most find that it gives them more energy.  That can be explained by the way the chlorophyll enters the blood stream so easily.

Today’s technology allows the convenience of having the wheatgrass in a single serving packet that you can take with you wherever you go, vacations, or other trips.  Make sure you get the only wheatgrass powder that includes the roots, and leaves for maximum nutrition and milder taste.

According to the Livestrong organization, chemotherapy treatments suppress bone marrow activity (myelotoxicity) which can cause:

  • Decreased capacity for carrying oxygen throughout your body
  • Insufficient blood cells to boost your immune system
  • Decreased blood clotting ability

Myelotoxicity significantly compromises a cancer patient’s immune system.  According to a 2007 study published in Nutrition and Cancer involving 60 breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy treatments, Wheatgrass was shown to boost low levels of white blood cells, which helped prevent this condition from occurring.
