Wheatgrass as Preventative Maintenance???

Blades and Roots

Wheat grass is full of nutrients and vitamins for the body and has high concentrations of chlorophyll, active enzymes, vitamins and other nutrients.   It increases the hemoglobin in the blood and boosts the functioning of the systems of our body while eliminating toxins.

Research suggests that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables can be “preventative maintenance” for many ailments, and wheat grass is one way to increase the veggie power of your overall diet.

“Fifteen pounds of wheat grass is equal in overall nutritional value to 350 pounds of ordinary garden vegetables. We have not even scratched the surface of what grass can mean to man in the future.”—Dr. Charles Schnabel, Father of Wheat Grass Therapy

As a health supplement, wheatgrass had a humble if not surprising beginning.  An experiment was conducted by Charles Schnabel, on his chickens in the 1930s. The hens were sick and dying when Schnabel got them. He dried and powdered freshly grown wheatgrass and fed it to his hens. Not only did the chickens fully recover, they were also able to produce twice as many eggs. He got 126 eggs from 106 hens. Anyone who knows about chickens will tell you that those are phenomenal results.  Fed regularly to his chickens, he noticed that the lifespan of his chickens was also significantly longer.

His miraculous results inspired him to test it on himself.  He gave the dehydrated grasses, an economical and practical food supplement, to his family of seven. As reported in the Buffalo Courier Express, none of his children ever had a serious illness or even a decayed tooth.

Whether you want to get through a busy day with vigor and enthusiasm or are looking for an alternative way to get rid of a certain health problem, you should definitely look into wheatgrass as a regular supplement.

Best Organic Wheatgrass is grown areoponically (without soil) and that enables the roots to be used along with the leaves.  The advantage is more nutrition and better taste.
