Why is wheatgrass such a wonderful super food? Where do I start?!
A shot size of wheatgrass juice is the equivalent chlorophyll benefit to three large heads of broccoli.
The useful website WHEATGRASS EVIDENCE gives many examples of how beneficial this super food is.
Some people have asked me recently which method of growing is best and whether it makes any difference to consume organic or non-organic wheatgrass.
Organic produce has higher nutritional value than non-organic which is sprayed with pesticides.
In my humble view, the best plan of all is to consume wheatgrass that has been grown outside in organic conditions - that is to say in organic soil and other growing conditions, and approved by the soil association or other bodies to be pesticide and chemical free.
Wheatgrass cultivated in trays, whether inside or outside, is forced, has limited growth time and therefore is likely to be full of sugar and of lower nutritional benefit.
Scientific evidence from testing and a report conducted in 2005 'Evaluation of the Antioxidant Activity of Wheatgrass (Triticum aestivum L.) as a Function of Growth under Different Conditions' proved that wheatgrass harvested from crops grown in natural soil contained higher nutrients. Furthermore, they stated that chlorophyll, one of the active components in the wheatgrass extract, was found to be responsible for inhibiting the metabolic activation of carcinogens (Lai et al., 1978; Lai, 1979).
I have often been asked to test and put my name to 'natural' health products but found, upon close investigation, that some are unsuitable for people with cancer who must follow the very highest standards to minimise risk of toxicity and receive maximum nutritional benefit. Imagine my delight when being reintroduced to live organic wheatgrass juice that arrives in frozen shot sized pouches direct to your door every month. No mess, no sourcing of organic produce, no expensive juicer needed, no time needed to prepare.
A 'shot' size pouch is equivalent to three large heads of broccoli in terms of the amount of chlorophyll.
Do you have time to grow and pick your own broccoli?
Chlorophyll is known to minimise side effects of chemotherapy, stabilise blood sugar, reduce blood pressure, improve digestive function, speed hair and nail growth, stabilise weight, reduce aging and improve symptoms of depression. Wheatgrass alkalises the blood, can reverse diabetes, improves sleep, reduces fatigue and inflammation, increases vitality and so much more.
The nutritional benefits of wheatgrass juice are incredible:-
•All vitamins (-D)
•20 amino acids
•80 active enzymes
NO wheat or gluten
25 x more Vitamin E
1oz = 1.5 lbs broccoli
•All 8 vitamin Bs

Wheatgrass juice on it's own is a bit like drinking grass and not to everyone's taste. You can mix it with a little (healthy) juice. I mostly drink it neat or sometimes add fresh organic lemon juice and a pinch of quality salt.
