Why is it important to alkalize your body?

wheatgrass 100

Alkalinity, referred to as pH, is the concentration of hydrogen ions in water, blood, etc…  A pH of 7.0 on the scale is considered neutral, but a 7.4 pH is desirable for the human body.

You get alkaline by eating raw foods, fruits and vegetables.  The acidic foods on the other hand are sugar, white flour, red meats, and processed foods.  Stress can also cause your body to be acidic.  A normal American diet is 80% acid and 20% alkaline; this is the opposite of a good diet.  If you reverse those numbers you will be giving your body what it desires.

Your blood pH must operate in a narrow range for good health.  The complex biochemical processes taking place constantly is an attempt to keep blood pH as near perfect as possible. If your body is not getting an adequate mineral intake from the foods you eat, you will have problems balancing your pH system.  When the body is overly acidic it will leach calcium from the bones or teeth leading to osteoporosis and other health problems.

An easy way to get enough minerals to keep your body alkaline is by taking the only wheatgrass powder with the roots.  Wheatgrass will assimilate into your blood stream in about 20 minutes.  This is like getting a blood transfusion with every drink of wheatgrass.

All wheatgrass powders are not the same, be sure and get the only one that includes the roots.






Why Sprouted Wheatgrass?


SLIDE-3    In 1920 Edmond Szekely classified sprouted seeds and baby greens as the most beneficial foods. And he recommended that they make up 25% of our daily food intake.   Calling them life-generating biogenic foods, he claimed they offered the strongest support for cell regeneration.

In his book “The pH Miracle”; Dr Robert Young says “Sprouts are full of vitamins, minerals and complete proteins, sprouts are just about the best food you can eat.  They are living plant foods that are biogenic–meaning they can transfer their life energy to you!  Seeds become more alkaline as they sprout.”

A healthy body is alkaline (i.e not acidic).  Biogenic foods have an alkalizing effect on the body.  Double Nobel Prize winner Dr Otto Warburg found growth of cancer cells were initiated by a lack of oxygen and these cells, along with viruses and bacteria, could not live in an alkaline and oxygen rich environment.

The supply of vitamins existing in seeds are increased by the sprouting biochemistry from 50% to 1300%.  This biochemistry modifies the array of minerals in sprouts so that they are in a chelated form which is more easily assimilated in the body.

Various factors, in our daily life,  transpire to create free radicals within our bodies.  Free radicals are highly unstable oxygen molecules needing an electron to stabilize their disorder.  By stealing electrons from healthy cells the causal effects of this are the breakdown of vital biological structures and the alteration of DNA.  Once this has occurred, the affected cell will only reproduce the altered version. Super foods are a powerful source of antioxidants (minerals, vitamins and enzymes) which assist in protecting against this damage.

Best Organic Wheatgrass is a sprouted super food, grown aeroponically (without soil, free from fungus and bacteria).  Those wheatgrass powders that are grown in soil do not have the advantages of Best Organic Wheatgrass. It is the only powder on the market that has the roots and the leaves.  The result is a milder taste and more nutrients.


What wheatgrass powder can do for you!

Wheatgrass Powder should not be confused with wheatgrass “juice” powder
Best Organic Wheatgrasspowder” is aeroponically grown, cold-drying the whole plant (leaves and the roots) and then milling it into a fine powder.  The roots  (missing in most wheatgrass powders) are important for higher nutritional value.  The roots also contain SOD and P4D1, also noted in this article.
Wheatgrass ” juice powder” is made by first juicing the wheatgrass leaves and removing all of the cellulose (helps maintain health of the intestines) so a juice concentrate (a heat process which destroys the enzymes) is left, then it is dried into a powder. 

Wheatgrass powder is rich in protein and includes all 8 of the essential amino acids, as well as 13 of the remaining 16 non essential amino acids.  Besides containing 13 vitamins, 10 minerals, 100 enzymes and an excellent source of chlorophyll, wheatgrass has two other special components which make it particularly valuable:

Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) – The aging process has been directly linked to decreasing amounts of SOD in our system.  Increased amounts of SOD cause our body to repair itself quicker.  Additionally SOD acts as an anti-inflammatory and cancer fighting enzyme.

P4D1 EnzymeP4D1 has been found to do two things in the human body.  It is the first known substance to actually stimulate repair of DNA molecules.  It is possible that diseased cells can be repaired with P4D1 so that when they reproduce they will actually produce good cells.  P4D1 has also been shown in laboratory tests to eat the protein sheath off a cancer cell so that the white blood cells can attack and destroy them.

Best Organic Wheatgrass powder, along with the previously noted elements, is a powerful detoxifier of the liver, blood, and gastrointestinal tract while neutralizing toxins.  The enzymes and amino acids found in wheatgrass can help protect the body from free radicals and carcinogens.  Wheatgrass also stimulates metabolism and the body’s enzyme systems by enriching the blood and increasing red blood cell count.  It may also aid reducing blood pressure by dilating the blood pathways throughout the body.  Recent studies suggest that wheatgrass has a powerful ability to help fight tumors without the usual toxicity of drugs.
