Wheatgrass is a plant that is grown from the Red Wheat berry, a special strain of wheat that produces high concentrations of chlorophyll, active enzymes, vitamins and other nutrients. Wheatgrass is one of the richest sources of vitamins A, complete B complex, B-17, C, E and K. In addition, it is an excellent source of Calcium, Potassium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorous,
Sodium, Sulphur, Cobalt, Zinc, 17 amino acids, and enzymes as a body cleanser.
Wheatgrass Juice is a powerful cleanser and may start an immediate reaction with toxins and mucus in the stomach, possibly causing nausea. Chlorophyll brings toxins into the bloodstream that have been stored in cells or in fatty tissue. Start with one to two ounces and work up to more slowly. Drink it on an empty stomach as a bodybuilder, as an energizer, and as an appetite
Wheatgrass juice is very high in enzymes and chlorophyll. It contains up to 70% chlorophyll, an important blood builder. The chlorophyll molecule closely resembles that of the hemin molecule, the pigment that combines with protein to form hemoglobin. The major difference is that the chlorophyll molecule contains magnesium as its central atom, and the hemin molecule contains iron. The molecular structure of these two substances is almost identical in every other respect.
The starch of the wheat berry is stored energy that, when converted to simpler sugar, is quick energy source. It is especially good for athletes because it is a juice and is absorbed in 20 minutes. Wheat picks up 92 of the 102 minerals in the soil and contains all the vitamins that science has isolated. Because one ounce of juice equals two pounds of produce nutritionally, it naturally shuts off the appetite in the brain.
