Why is Wheatgrass beneficial to our health?
Dr. Ann Wigmore, proponent of "living foods diet", has embraced the benefits of wheatgrass in her teachings and writing. According to Dr. Wigmore, wheatgrass has an exceptional ability to both nourish and detoxify the body.
One of the ingredients with major benefit in wheatgrass is chlorophyll, which draws out toxins from the body. Chlorophyll can soothe and heal tissues internally. The chlorophyll in wheatgrass is high in oxygen and light energy, which can provide the brain and body tissues with an optimal environment in which to function. The chlorophyll in wheatgrass also has antibacterial properties, which can stop the development of harmful bacteria in the body.
Wheatgrass Powder is easiest to consume in powder form and has the maximum shelf life in this form unlike fresh wheat grass juice which has to be consumed immediately upon extraction. Wheatgrass powder can be added to juices or smoothies. Wheatgrass powder contains all of the benefits of the wheatgrass plant, such as nutrients, minerals and vitamins.
Nutrients in Wheatgrass
This nutrient-rich wheatgrass contains 17 amino acids which are the building blocks of proteins. The body uses these amino acids for things like building muscle tissue, repairing cells and clotting the blood. Wheatgrass retains 92 of the 102 minerals found in the soil. These minerals include calcium, phosphorus, iron, magnesium and potassium. It is a rich natural source of vitamins A and C. Wheatgrass has more vitamin C than oranges and twice the vitamin A of carrots. It is exceptionally rich in vitamins E, K, and B-complex. It is also a natural source of laetrile (B-17). Wheatgrass produces an immunization effect against many dietary carcinogens.
