Getting people to “buy-in” when it comes to consuming wheatgrass can be a tough task at times. I can’t blame them. It’s super green and can sometimes smell like a fresh cut lawn. Typically, foods that are green seem to be associated with bad taste, but also deemed good for you. So, why should you suffer from consuming a super green colored water that tastes like grass?
The Green Experience
First of all, if you have some solid wheatgrass, it shouldn’t really taste like grass. It should actually have a bit of a sweet taste to it. It is smooth in texture (once the cube melts) and leaves your body feeling like it just received the extra boost that it needed. Most people start to enjoy consuming their shots of this superfood once they get over the color and smell. The healing properties and the array of nutrients that wheatgrass contains is the magic that helps people “buy-into” taking wheatgrass.
The Science Behind The Superfood
Wheatgrass is the highest mineral source in the world. Over 90 minerals make it extremely alkaline. Wheatgrass is high in chlorophyll, which acts as a powerful detoxifier. Wheatgrass strengthens our cells, neutralizes environmental pollutants, aids digestion, helps with acid reflux, improves digestion, metabolism and weight loss. It also decreases inflammation and improves skin, hair, and nails. The particular wheatgrass we recommend comes in an ice cube form. It is grown, cut, and flash frozen to provide you with the most nutrients.
Wheatgrass juice is an effective healer because it contains all minerals known to man, and vitamins A, B-complex, C, E, L and K. It is extremely rich in protein and contains 17 amino acids, the building blocks of protein. Chlorophyll can be extracted from many plants, but wheatgrass is superior. It has over 100 elements needed by humans. When grown in organic soil, it absorbs 92 of the known 115 minerals from the soil.
I was doing research and found this pretty interesting but not surprising. In the American Journal of Surgery (1940), Benjamin Gruskin, M.D. recommends chlorophyll for its antiseptic benefits. The article suggests the following clinical uses for chlorophyll: to clear up foul smelling odors, neutralize Strep infections, heal wounds, hasten skin grafting, to cure chronic sinusitis, overcome chronic inner ear inflammation and infection, reduce varicose veins and heal leg ulcers, eliminate impetigo and other scabby eruptions, heal rectal sores, successfully treat inflammation of the uterine cervix, get rid of parasitic vaginal infections, reduce typhoid fever, and cure advanced pyorrhea in many cases.
The cubes will contain lots of live digestive enzymes helping to improve bloating, elimination, and absorption, frozen right at its peak nutrient state. The wheatgrass you typically find in the grocery store will be expensive, pasteurized, and low in minerals. How to melt: 3-5 wheatgrass cubes in a glass of water and drink first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.
You may think of taking wheatgrass as some hocus-pocus voodoo food that has big claims but I can promise you that this is some powerful stuff! Try taking 3 cubes a day for 30-days see just how awesome your body can feel when you provide it with the nutrients the body craves to keep performing at your best!
Serving Size: 3 cubes a day or 1.5 ounces/day
