Wheatgrass: Nature’s Medicine by Sean Herbert

Have you ever seen a dog or cat when they are not feeling well…What do they look for? GRASS. Instinctual animals will act instinctively because they know what is good for them.  There are 9000 different varieties of grass on the planet and most if not all animals on this planet either directly or indirectly have grass in their diets. We humans of course cannot digest grass, we get the indirect benefits from eating grass fed animals and juicing Wheatgrass. Well grass is grass is grass meaning I could go out and juice lawn clippings and they would be just as beneficial to juicing wheatgrass so why does everyone like Wheatgrass?  It simply tastes good…It’s sweet.  Over the years Wheatgrass has been given almost a legendary status being credited for curing ailments and diseases, from gray hair to increased sex drive to so-called incurable diseases. The truth is that Wheatgrass does have a lot to offer the human body.  I like to call Wheatgrass the medicine of Sprouts. Wheatgrass Juice contains a whopping 92 of 102 trace minerals available to plants from naturally rich organic soil to offer a maximum nutritional profile. Wheatgrass is a rich source of vitamins A, B, C, D and K and provides high quality source of plant based calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium and potassium in a naturally balanced ratio to be easily absorbed by our bodies. To give perspective, Wheatgrass has 11 times more calcium than Cow’s milk, 7 times more vitamin C than oranges and 5 times more iron than spinach. Just juicing 2oz of Wheatgrass juice is said to be equivalent to eating 5lbs of fresh vegetables.  Wheatgrass is also one of the highest sources for chlorophyll (the green blood of the plant). Chlorophyll has a molecular structure similar to hemoglobin in human blood. Chlorophyll cleans and oxygenates our blood boosting our immune response and helps our bodies heal, recover and regenerate.  Wheatgrass Juice is one of the richest sources of vitamins, minerals, trace elements and chlorophyll. Affectionately called “Liquid Sunshine” Wheatgrass Juice provides an intense and pure form of supplemental nutrition due to the fact that it is still alive and growing.  Healthy, oxygenated cells help to ward off disease and complications of every nature allowing us to live a vibrant life.
