Wonderful World Of Wheatgrass

     No wonder our freeze dried wheatgrass powder and wheatgrass juice powder has become our best selling geen superfood for 2010. Wheatgrass is being being consumed by more and more people each and every day. Why you ask? First and foremost people in modern day society are opening their eyes and turning their cheek to big name food companies and for a good reason. These brand name foods such mac and cheese, chicken TV dinners, microwave breakfast foods, etc., etc., are produced with additives such as artificial food colors, flavors, preservatives, hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup and the list goes on and on.

These additives simply hurt our body, deplete essential nutrients, and cause harm. Nowadays, people are more and more modifying their diets to include organic grown fruits and vegetables, meats from free range animals, and more. On top of this is the increasing education of green superfood powders. These amazing powders such as wheatgrass, barleygrass, spinach, and alfalfa powders are truly a godsend to ones body. Many are choosing a healthier diet along with a daily health shake which may include one or more of these super potent and nutrient dense superfoods. Along with this many are adding flax seeds, frozen fruits, aloe juice, and more into their daily health drink for a blast of nutrients that helps heal and protect our cells.

Did you know wheatgrass is one of the richest sources of chlorophyll? The renewal of blood is due to the similarity of chlorophyll to hemoglobin. Chlorophyll contains magnesium in the central atom, and hemoglobin contains iron. Wheatgrass contains 20% protein, (meat has 17% and eggs have 12%). Protein in grass is in the form of poly peptides, shorter and simpler chains of amino acids which are deposited more efficiently into the bloodstream and blood tissues. Wheat grass contains enzymes which digest the toxins in your body. The toxins accumulated in your body are from foods not able to rid or digest themselves.

Wheatgrass is considered to be a complete food because it contains every amino acid, vitamin, and mineral (some in only trace amounts) necessary for human nutrition. No complete nutrition analysis of wheatgrass or wheatgrass juice is available in the literature. It is mentioned that 1 ounce of fresh wheatgrass juice is equivalent to 2.5 pounds of vegetables in nutritional value. One ounce of wheatgrass has more vitamin C than one ounce of oranges. One ounce of wheatgrass has twice the vitamin A than in one ounce of  of carrots. It is said that 25 ml of wheatgrass is equivalent in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to a kilogram of fresh garden vegetables in nutritional value.
