What is Wheatgrass?

Wheatgrass is a special strain of grass that has the highest chlorophyll content among all plants: 70% in fact. Chlorophyll is “plant blood” with a very similar structure to our own blood. It’s very rich in enzymes and amino acids beneficial to both plants and you. Wheatgrass has so much chlorophyll in it that just one ounce of wheatgrass juice is equivalent to 2 ½ pounds (that’s a kilo) of raw vegetables!
It is considered as a Superfood and a wonder medicine that can cure or prevent various health problems. So imagine getting all the wholesome goodness of all those veggies in a day and then some with just an ounce of wheatgrass juice! Who knew being naturally healthy was that simple?

Why does Wheatgrass work?

Wheatgrass is so effective because of chlorophyll. The structure of chlorophyll is similar to your own hemoglobin or red blood cells. Oxygen, hydrogen, carbon and nitrogen are held together by iron – that’s your blood. Chlorophyll also has those elements but is structured around a different metal: magnesium. The similarity of your blood and chlorophyll is what makes it so easy for your body to absorb all those nutrients quickly. It is also referred to as the green blood.

Since wheatgrass is 70% chlorophyll, you’re effectively giving your blood fresh, raw, and abundant materials to use in improving your whole body! Your body can easily transform chlorophyll into hemoglobin which increases your red blood cell count. And an increased amount of red blood cells means that more amounts of oxygen and other nutrients are delivered to the different parts of your body faster!

Why juice?

You might think that it’s easier to just take wheatgrass pills or use its powdered form as opposed to taking time and juicing your fresh wheatgrass. We believe in juicing because of one thing: enzymes.
The enzymes contained in wheatgrass could be denatured or rendered inactive when the product undergoes pasteurization, which is essential to turn wheatgrass into its pill or powdered form. You might have an easier time popping a wheatgrass pill or mixing powdered wheatgrass into your favorite smoothie, but you’re missing out on the enzymes that were destroyed in the heating and packaging processes.
Juicing raw wheatgrass not only ensures freshness, but makes sure all the enzymes are there when you drink it. Juicing also makes it easily digestible since it’s in a liquid medium. This is why wheatgrass juice is best taken on an empty stomach. Within 20-30 minutes, the juice would’ve been absorbed by your body so you can go on to eat your breakfast knowing that you didn’t skip out on all those beneficial enzymes.

How often should I drink Wheatgrass juice?

Before we talk about how often or how much wheatgrass juice to drink, keep in mind that you’re juicing wheatgrass fresh for a reason. Wheatgrass juice is potent for up to 2 hours after you juice it; if refrigerated will last for 12 hours.
If you’re new to taking Wheatgrass, we suggest you start out at one to two ounce a day for a week and increase to 4 ounces after that. Your body needs a bit of time to adjust to the wheatgrass and you may experience nausea the first few times you take it. Rest assured that the nausea will pass and it is not an allergic reaction to wheatgrass. Wheat allergies are caused by the gluten in wheat breads, which is not found in wheatgrass juice. You’re getting all the health benefits of chlorophyll and enzymes, but not the allergies.

yeah they grow on backyard, but if you intend to juice it. I dont recommend you do it that way. (for sanitary reasons)

no fertilizer needed to grow wheatgrass....just soil for sprouting and water.

For some the first time you take it there is a feeling of nausea,but this is just natural,it's not an allergic effect. In my experience it smells like guava and has a sweet taste.

Fresh is always better than processed. :thumbsupsmiley:

soak the seed for 8 hours
then rinse let it germinate for overnight
after you see the seed sprouting for about a quarter to an inch,
you can begin to plant the seeds to the soil.
then water twice a day, don't expose to direct sunlight.
place in an area where it is well ventilated.
grow for 5 days and then you can harvest it
cut just above the root, wash thoroughly with running water.
Use a juicer designed for wheat grass or other leafy vegetables.
