Superfoods: Wheatgrass

Did you know that wheatgrass has more vitamin C than oranges or more vitamin A than carrots? Wheatgrass is grown from the red wheat berry, a special strain of wheat that produces high concentrations of chlorophyll, antioxidants, active enzymes, vitamins, vital amino acids and other nutrients. It is one of the most nutrient dense substances on Earth, packed with essential fatty acids and chlorophyll. Wheatgrass is a lush green plant that will eventually become a shaft of wheat, produce grain and be harvested. It has a completely different structure when it is still in the grass stage. At only seven days, the blade is 6 to 9 inches tall and can be cut, juiced and consumed or dried into powder, which can be made into tablets or capsules. To get maximum benefit it must be juiced and just 30ml is enough for a daily shot of healthy goodness, the equivalent of eating 1kg of leafy green vegetables.

Wheatgrass is considered to be a complete food because it contains every amino acid, vitamin and mineral necessary for human nutrition and can be an important tool in maintaining an alkaline environment in the body. An important feature of wheatgrass is that the chlorophyll molecules are nearly identical to haemoblobin molecules in human blood and pioneer researchers like Dr. Robert Young of pH Miracle claim that this allows the body to absorb nutrients from wheatgrass more easily. Viktoras Kulvinskas, pioneer raw foodist and co-founder of the Hipocrates Institute, states the following about wheatgrass and the blood, “Nutritionally it’s like mother’s milk, chemically it’s the closest thing to the structure of hemoglobin and spiritually speaking, it’s the nectar of the Gods for pure, radiant life energy.”
