Most of us know that eating more fruits and vegetables will benefit our health, but with hectic social lives, raising families and busy work schedules this can sometimes be challenging.
Though it is ideal to eat a healthy, balanced diet with a variety of fresh produce, supplementing your diet with the right power-foods, such as a few ounces of fresh organic wheatgrass juice can go a long way in helping provide you with many of the minerals, enzymes and antioxidants your body needs to be healthy.
Nutrients in Wheatgrass
Wheatgrass is considered by many people to be the most healing of all grasses. It contains more than 90 elements from the soil, and it is one of nature’s richest sources of vitamins A and C.
When it is grown in fertile organic soil, it contains all of the known mineral elements and is ri ch in calcium, magnesium, selenium, phosphorus, iron, potassium, sulfur, sodium, B12, cobalt and zinc.
Some health experts claim that wheatgrass contains over 100 nutrients!
Wheatgrass is also abundant in vitamin B-17, a substance that is believed to destroy cancer cells selectively.
Scientists at the University of Texas concluded that wheatgrass juice is exceptional in its chlorophyll content.
Known as “nature’s greatest healer,” chlorophyll is ‘bio-chemically similar’ to human blood in nutritional composition and is thought to help build and support a healthy cardiovascular system.
Wheatgrass also helps purify the blood, boost energy and reduce free-radical damage to the heart and body.
This powerful grass creates an internal environment that suppresses bacterial growth and counteracts ingested toxins. It also helps to purify the liver, build the blood’s oxygen-carrying potential and regulate digestion.
As a cocktail, wheatgrass, and the chlorophyll it contains, is a powerful purifier of the stomach, liver, pancreas and circulatory system.
Beyond Chlorophyll, wheatgrass is also rich in amino acids (protein), enzymes which aid in digestion, and a host of vitamins, minerals and natural plant compounds that support optimal health, weight and vitality.
