Wheatgrass - The New Fountain of Youth!
Wheatgrass is everywhere these days, quickly becoming the "new age espresso," offered in smoothies and juices, salads and even in tablets and powders.
As many of you know, wheatgrass packs a nutritional punch, including (per 3.5 grams) 860 mg protein, 18.5 mg chlorophyll, 15 mg calcium, 38 mg lysine, 7.5 mg vitamin C, plus an abundance of micronutrients, such as the B complex vitamins and amino acids. Wheat grass enthusiasts boast its potential to help in the treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Research suggests that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables can be "preventative maintenance" for many ailments, and wheatgrass is one more way to increase the veggie power of your overall diet.
Most people who have explored the avenues of self-healing have heard about wheatgrass. Wheatgrass juice has been proven over many years to benefit people in numerous ways: cleansing the lymph system, building the blood, restoring balance in the body, removing toxic metals from the cells, nourishing the liver and kidneys and restoring vitality.
One ounce of wheat grass juice has the vitamin and mineral equivalent of 2.2 pounds of fresh vegetables. Many of the benefits of wheat grass juice stem from the fact that it is a living food, which is a complete protein with about 30 enzymes and is approximately 70% crude chlorophyll.
Astounding success in the reversal of chronic degenerative diseases has been experienced through eating a diet of mainly vegetarian, living foods including wheat grass juice.
