What is wheatgrass?
Wheatgrass is a part of the wheat family ‘triticum.’ Not a grain but a green vegetable grass, wheatgrass is grown and harvested at a young age to conserve as many of its nutrients as possible.
Wheatgrass: the ‘Queen’ of Superfoods
Wheatgrass contains a broad spectrum of high quality vegetable nutrition and is among the richest sources of minerals, enzymes, B vitamins, antioxidants and complex proteins.
It also contains raw chlorophyll, which is basically condensed sunlight. Chlorophyll is closer to hemin, a substance that helps make up the molecular structure of human blood, than anything else on the planet.
This means that wheatgrass delivers nutrients in ways that are readily absorbed into your blood stream.
No wonder wheatgrass is classed as a ‘superfood’. By virtue of the complexity, range and number of nutrients it contains, wheatgrass provides essential raw materials from which your body can readily manufacture the goodness it needs to balance its own chemistry.
