Wheatgrass powder is a young wheat plant, highly nutrient rich and potent. Having captured the energy of the sun, wheatgrass converts it into all that goodness that is stored in its bright green leaves. The leaves are then dried to produce wheatgrass powder. Even though it comes from a wheat plant, it is gluten free.
Benefits of wheatgrass powder
Wheatgrass juice is an effective healer because it contains all minerals known to man, and vitamins A, B-complex, C, E, l and K. It is extremely rich in protein, and contains 17 amino acids, the building blocks of protein. It contains chlorophyll, essential fatty acids, antioxidants, enzymes and energy-metabolising minerals. Chlorophyll contains enzymes and super- oxide dismutase, a copper-containing protein found in mature red blood cells. This enzyme decomposes superoxide radicals in the body into a more manageable form, thereby helping to slow down the aging process. Wheatgrass juice can dissolve the scars that are formed in the lungs from breathing acid gasses. The effect of carbon monoxide is minimized since chlorophyll increases hemoglobin production. Wheatgrass is high in oxygen like all green plants that contain chlorophyll. This is beneficial because the brain and all body tissues function at an optimal level in a highly- oxygenated environment.
