Wheat Grass and Its Superfood Properties

Making Wheatgrass JuiceWheat grass is one of a large variety of grass which is grown in fields like barley, rye, and oats. It also refers to grass that is grown indoors in special trays for around 10 days from which, later on, their juice is squeezed and consumed fresh. Most of the dehydrated grass that is around 60 days old is mainly used as supplements or nutritional supplements. Such juice when mixed with some of the sprouted wheat berries is especially rich in chlorophyll content. This juice is known to cleanse the body and also to neutralize most of the toxins in our body along with slowing down the process of aging and at the same time is believed to help prevent cancer.

Wheat grass can certainly benefit a number of serious diseases as has been shown by a number of medical professionals. The herbal medicine is also known to have a good healing power just like aloe vera. The theory can be better understood as most of the cats and dogs can be seen nibbling on the grass especially when they feel sick or unwell. It is known to neutralize all the rotten food that forms toxins in our alimentary canal and the blood streams. Most of the enzymes that are found in the wheat grass have the power to detoxify most of the known toxins and additives found in our normally daily diet.

Chlorophyll is known as the life blood of all the green plants. Most of the medical professionals believe that wheat grass should not be cooked as cooking could kill most of the chlorophyll and so destroy its beneficial effects on our body. The most known fact is that most of the grass eating animals are generally spared from cancer as they eat chlorophyll in fresh form. Chlorophyll cannot detoxify the body itself but has certain enzymes present in it that do have the power to detoxify.

For a number of years most of the vegetable juices have been known to have a cleansing effect on our body. That is the prime reasons most of the doctors prescribe taking vegetable juices when we have a stomach ache or are not simply feeling well. Most of the vegetables have chlorophyll enzymes present in them. The wheat grass that is grown in the laboratory has more iron than spinach, more amounts of proteins than fish, eggs or even beans for the same weight. They have natural powers to heal the body system.

Wheat grass could be considered one of the superfoods and more and more people are discovering its health benefits. Try adding wheat grass to your daily diet and experience the benefits it has to give.

This article explores why wheat grass is beneficial and why you should dig out your old power juicer and start juicing today.

Wheatgrass Barley Grass and Green Superfoods

It's all about going Green

Wheatgrass and Barley Grass are SuperfoodsWheatgrass, Barley Grass and other "cereal grasses" are nutrient powerhouses. The young tender leaves of the wheatgrass, barley grass, oat and rye plants have a nutrient density like no other plants.. During their early stages of growth, these grasses are actually considered to be vegetables, not grains. Once they reach their nutritional peak, usually after seven days, just before developing into a firm stalk, the grasses are harvested and grinded into juice, or low-temperature dehydrated into a whole food powder, which preserves all the natural nutrients and enzymes in the grasses.

Green Superfoods like Cereal grasses are richer than ordinary vegetables in many nutrients, including antioxidants like beta-carotene. They're also very rich in phytonutrients, and have what early researchers called 'The Grass Juice Factor'. This unidentifiable 'factor' was consistent evidence that livestock and other animals raised with these 'cereal grasses' as part of their diets showed superior health and vitality when compared to animals raised on more conventional feeds. Prominent food scientists Charles Schnabel and Dr. George Kohler began researching the effects of these powerful foods in the 1920's and 30's. They discovered uniquely high amounts of diverse nutrients and food factors in the grasses, when compared to other vegetables. "15 lbs of wheat grass is equal in overall nutritional value to over 350 lbs of ordinary vegetables,' said Schnabel.

After Schnabel and Kohler's findings were recognized and endorsed by government agencies, dehydrated wheat grass tablets were the first 'multivitamins' sold nationwide, and were even prescribed by doctors for various ailments. It wasn't until the chemical revolution in the 1950's that consumers began forsaking nature's nutrients in favor of manmade vitamins. But…results don't lie, and over the last few decades there has fortunately been a renewed interest and appreciation for whole food nutrition, and green superfoods like cereal grasses.

Green Superfoods such as wheatgrass are an awesome addition to anyone's daily diet. They are:

  • Super-rich in Antioxidant beta carotene
  • Source of Alkalizing trace minerals and Phytonutrients
  • Big nutritional punch per gram vs. many common vegetables

Superfoods are in general ultra-concentrated sources of broad spectrum nutrients
When shopping for a wheatgrass / barley grass product / green foods product, there's a few requirements you should have. A good green superfood product should:

  • Use organically grown grasses
  • Be concentrated and in a form easy to drink and digest
  • Have a dark green look, a smooth rich texture, and a rich, 'greens' scent
  • Be wild-crafted and all-natural, with no added synthetic ingredients
  • Use no low cost fillers such as soy lecithin or apple pectin fiber
  • Have additional support super-ingredients like spirulina and chlorella

In my opinion, green superfoods are the absolute best whole food supplement to your daily diet.

Remember, invest into your health, and your life will thank you!
