Organic Wheatgrass

Powder

Ancient Egyptians used wheatgrass, also known as “liquid gold”, to detox and maintain their health and vitality. Harvested from the leafy growth of the young wheat plant it boasts a wealth of minerals and nutrients, such as chlorophyll, magnesium, calcium, copper and phosphorous. One serving of wheatgrass juice is the rough equivalent of 700g of leafy green vegetables.

Wheatgrass is the harvested leafy growth of the young wheat plant (Triticum aestivum) and grown around the world in many countries. Since the 1930’s agricultural research determined the effectiveness of this crop as a dietary supplement. For millennia wheat has been used as a cereal crop but more recently the nutritional richness and potential benefits have made wheatgrass into a true Superfood.

It is packed with nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytonutrients and all the essential amino acids. The rich nutritional profile of wheatgrass was used as long ago as the ancient Egyptians, who valued its detoxing properties and its contribution to maintaining their health and vitality.

Adding organic wheatgrass powder to your diet is an effective way to get your quota of 5 to 9 servings of fruits and vegetables a day, according to Illinois State University.

Wheatgrass protein contains 19 of the 22 amino acids, including all of the eight essential amino acids (those the body can’t make for itself). Wheatgrass is enriched with vitamins, including A, B1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, B12, C, E and K.

Wheatgrass also contains Chlorophyll, the substance that gives wheatgrass its signature, bright green colour. It is used for a number of important processes: It’s a natural liver cleanser and detoxifier, acts like an antioxidant to reduce free radical damage, is a blood strengthener (it has a similar chemical composition to that of haemoglobin,) and can help give you a boost in energy.
