What Does Your Blood Have to Do With Age?

Scientist_Holding_Wheatgrass

Greater vitality and longer life span is the result of healthy blood.  Rich, healthy blood carries nutrients to every cell of the body; otherwise we merely survive with poor health and low energy.

According to Dr. Bernard Jensen from “Chlorophyll Magic from Living Plant Life”, no blood builder is superior to wheatgrass.  The blood building results occurred quickly when the patients drank wheatgrass regularly.   Blood rich in iron brings more oxygen to the cells, promoting youthfulness and preventing senility.

 In “Cells Grow Younger”, Dr. Brown Landone discussed the power of root auxins-substances found in the roots of all young, growing plants.  He cited research experiments conducted by botanists who placed root auxins on the tip of a leaf, causing roots to grow on the edge of the leaf.  Dr Landone reasoned that we could get a sort of youth auxin from eating baby greens, sprouts, and grasses.  Others have proven his assumptions correct.    Dr. Weston Price, founder of the Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation, isolated a substance from the tips of young grasses which had a similar effect to that of root auxins, showing an ability to promote regeneration in damaged cells.

Wheatgrass may be used as a tonic and rejuvenator because of its abundance of natural vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and enzymes.  It is a high-quality source of fuel, and is easily assimilated, requiring little energy to digest.

It is important to note that wheatgrass with the roots contains auxins and is superior to just wheatgrass leaves alone.

WHEATGRASS JUICE:

  • Has been known to increase the red blood-cell count and lowers blood pressure. It will cleanse the blood, organs and gastrointestinal tract of debris.
  • Wheatgrass also stimulates metabolism and the body’s enzyme systems by enriching the blood. It also aids in reducing blood pressure by dilating the blood pathways throughout the body.
  • Stimulates the thyroid gland, correcting obesity, indigestion, and a host of other complaints.
  • Restores alkalinity to the blood. The juice’s abundance of alkaline minerals helps reduce over-acidity in the blood.
  • Is a powerful detoxifier, and liver and blood protector. The enzymes and amino acids found in wheatgrass can protect us from carcinogens like no other food or medicine. It strengthens our cells, detoxifies the liver and bloodstream, and chemically neutralizes environmental pollutants.
  • Fights tumors and neutralizes toxins. Recent studies show that wheatgrass juice has a powerful ability to fight tumors without the usual toxicity of drugs that also inhibit cell-destroying agents. The many active compounds found in wheatgrassgrass juice cleanse the blood and neutralize and digest toxins in our cells.
  • Contains beneficial enzymes. Whether you have a cut finger you want to heal or you desire to lose five pounds…enzymes must do the actual work. The life and abilities of the enzymes found naturally in our bodies can be extended if we help them from the outside by adding exogenous enzymes, like the ones found in wheatgrass juice. Don’t cook it. We can only get the benefits of the many enzymes found in grass by eating it uncooked. Cooking destroys 100 percent of the enzymes in food.
  • Has remarkable similarity to our own blood. The second important nutritional aspect of chlorophyll is its remarkable similarity to hemoglobin, the compound that carries oxygen in the blood. Dr. Yoshihide Hagiwara, president of the Hagiwara Institute of Health in Japan, is a leading advocate for the use of grass as food and medicine. He reasons that since chlorophyll is soluble in fat particles, and fat particles are absorbed directly into the blood via the lymphatic system, that chlorophyll can also be absorbed in this way. In other words, when the “blood” of plants is absorbed in humans it is transformed into human blood, which transports nutrients to every cell of the body.
  • Offers the benefits of a liquid oxygen transfusion since the juice contains liquid oxygen. Oxygen is vital to many body processes: it stimulates digestion (the oxidation of food), promotes clearer thinking (the brain utilizes 25% of the body’s oxygen supply), and protects the blood against anaerobic bacteria. Cancer cells cannot exist in the presence of oxygen according to DR Otto Warburg Nobel laureate.
  • Lessens the effects of radiation. One enzyme found in wheatgrass, SOD, lessens the effects of radiation and acts as an anti-inflammatory compound that may prevent cellular damage following heart attacks or exposure to irritants.
  • Is a beauty treatment that slows down the aging process when the juice is consumed  .Wheatgrass will cleanse your blood and help rejuvenate aging cells, slowing the aging process down, making you feel more alive right away.

What factors can affect your longevity?

David Kekich, founder of Maximum Life Foundation, recommends the following steps to increase the quality and quantity of your life.

Appropriate diet: One factor is regulating your insulin through diet and exercise. Optimizing your insulin level has been found to be a key factor in slowing down the aging process.

Exercise Program: Even if you’re eating the best diet in the world, you still need to exercise effectively to reach your highest level of health. This means incorporating core-strengthening exercises, strength training, and stretching and high-intensity activities into your rotation.

Stress Reduction and Positive Attitude: Your emotional state plays a role in nearly every disease, from heart disease and depression to arthritis and cancer. Effective coping mechanisms and stress management are major factors in promoting longevity, in part because stress has a direct impact on inflammation. Meditation, yoga, prayer, social support and exercise are all ways to help you maintain emotional equilibrium.

There is no quick fix, when it comes to longevity. There is no magic pill and no fountain of youth. Although some people seem to be blessed with longevity in spite of their lifestyle choices, this is the exception and not the rule. For most of us, becoming healthy centenarians will require some effort and attention to the factors outlined above.

While the above factors will tend to reduce the body’s acidity level; Best Organic Wheatgrass powder when added to your daily diet is an excellent way to reduce acidity level and is one of the highest alkaline foods on the planet.  Our wheatgrass is also an excellent way regulating your insulin level.  Check out our testimonies page.
