What’s all the fuss about?
Wheatgrass is a ‘must’ health miracle for anyone and definitely for anyone serious about their health and wellness.
In fact, two ounces of wheatgrass juice has the nutritional equivalent of five pounds of the best raw organic vegetables… That’s no joke!
In fact, in addition to chlorophyll, wheatgrass provides vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes in the body as well as it stimulates peristalsis and support thyroid functioning.
So let’s brake it down one by one:
Wheatgrass contains a high amount of Vitamin A, which aids in bone growth, eyesight and reproduction; Vitamin B, which aids brain and body development, the adrenal glands and the nervous system; Vitamin C, which aids the development of healthy skin, teeth, gums, eyes, muscles and joins and Vitamin E which helps the heart and reproductive systems in a form what is much more easily absorbed by the body than synthetic vitamins.
Of the more than 102 minerals available in the soil, 92 of them are absorbed by wheatgrass, including Calcium, which builds strong bones and teeth, regulates the heart, and helps balance blood pH; Iron, which aids red blood cell formation and the transport of oxygen to the cells; Sodium, which helps digestion, elimination and the regulation of the body fluids; Potassium that balances the body, tones muscles and firms skin and Magnesium that helps muscle function and elimination.
Wheatgrass contains 17 amino acids, including all 18 of the essential amino acids, which comprise proteins in the body. These are 8 amino acids that the body cannot manufacture by itself; it must synthesize these from the foods we eat.
Wheatgrass contains a lot of enzymes and also stimulates the body to produce its own natural enzymes.
So here is me enjoying a nice, cold one –
I recommend to drink one to four ounces of wheatgrass per day. Start slow and increase the amount over time. You can find this at any major health food store or juice bar. As always, I get it from Amazon, here is the link.
