The Benefits of Wheatgrass Juice
Wheatgrass juice is extremely bio available. This occurs because wheatgrass requires 50 times more pressure to juice than other fruits and vegetables. This force pulverizes the cellular structures and expresses out miniscule nutritional elements. The benefit of these tiny nutritional elements is that they are easy for the body to assimilate.
When you drink high quality wheatgrass juice, your body may produce spectacular results such as:
- A physical and mental sense of well-being
- More energy and better sleep
- Stronger immune system
- Detoxification on a cellular level
- Reduced inflammation in the entire body
- Lessened appetite cravingsIncreased mental clarity
- Steadier nerves
- Improved eyesight and night vision
- You suddenly start accomplishing more every day
- Actively engaging in and enjoying activities you had been dreading in the past
- Visually seeing results via live blood cell analysis such as the unclumping of oxygen-carrying red blood cells and much more…
Our wheatgrass juice is potent because it is raw and living. Many of the products available to us today have been denatured through drying, oxidation, irradiation, pasteurization, bottling, canning, etc. Be careful to avoid products that show the right ingredients but have a format that has traded the living energy of the food for shelf life.
Why Is Wheatgrass Juice So Good For You?
Our history with wheatgrass juice dates back into the 1970’s. As part of a group of early adopters, we were attending sprouting user groups and travelling across Africa learning and sharing information. We can say with absolute certainty that the juice can do incredible things for people and also say with absolute certainty that we do not know why. Over the years, wheatgrass juice has developed a large following of people who have seen and experienced the benefits. Exciting results and genuine enthusiasm have created a number of bold statements about why wheatgrass juice is so good; including:
- 1 fl. oz. of wheatgrass juice is equivalent to 2½ pounds of the choicest vegetables
- wheatgrass is mineral rich and contains 92 minerals needed by the body
- it is a complete protein containing 20+ amino acids and has higher protein densities than any other food source
- the magic is in the enzymes with more than 30 found in the juice
- the juice is 70% chlorophyll and since the chlorophyll molecule is virtually identical to haemoglobin (red blood cells that carry oxygen), wheatgrass juice will oxygenate your body
- an as of yet unidentified, tiny molecule is responsible for the positive effects
For the most part, these statements have been hypotheses not facts. Further developments have shown some of them to be partially or even entirely inaccurate. Although the explanations have not always stood up to rigorous scrutiny, the good intentions of the people, their experiences, and the benefits derived from the use of wheatgrass juice have never been in question. Although we do not understand the mechanics, you have got to get this juice, should certainly have high expectations and are advised to just be your own best observer as your body will know what to do with it.
The Reasons That Resonate With Us
There is a much discussion today about good health and body chemistry. This has spawned a broad movement toward achieving balanced pH. For most, this means consuming more foods that produce alkalizing effects and less foods that create acidifying effects. The rationale dates back to work done by Dr. Otto Heinrich Warburg who in 1931 was awarded the Nobel prize in Physiology / Medicine. Dr. Warburg looked at a complex relationship between acidic body chemistry, toxicity (caused by fermenting sugars), low oxygen states and corresponding sub-optimal performance of the body.
When pH Balanced » The Body Performs Optimally
Since most of us develop an acidic body chemistry over time, we need alkalizing foods to restore pH balance. Wheatgrass juice is a powerful alkalizer. It is also a preferred food because it seems to possess the ability to single-handedly change people’s body chemistry when used in sufficient amounts. As a result, it is exactly the kind of food needed to help jump start the processes of the body. It is also the perfect food to consume when life’s challenges (like travelling for work) get in the way of the lifestyle choices you prefer. For many, consuming wheatgrass juice is like have a license to exist in the world around us.
It is important to note that we don’t want our bodies to be either alkaline or acidic; rather, we are trying to achieve balance. We love our wheatgrass juice; but don’t think it appropriate to live on it alone. You can help your body build a solid long term foundation by using some wheatgrass juice and making great choices at the grocery store.
News24, Dr Andreas te Reh
In News24 (2005) Prof W. Serfontein was quoted as saying that sooner or later medical doctors must change their attitude about food intake and maintenance of good health. This concept of nutrition should be approached scientifically and this is starting to take shape in Europe and now, finally, South Africa as well.
Western diseases, global obesity, and a great number of serious complications caused by industrialised food and our environment are, in my opinion, not addressed sufficiently by medication alone. The fact remains that the training for medical doctors in matters of nutrition is not sufficient.
When I came into contact with the research of Dr Wolf Funfack and started attending his training in Germany, the success of my own work and welfare of my patients was undeniable, thanks to the revolutionary Metabolic Balance Programme®. This nutritional programme is not only a powerful and preventative approach to common diseases, but also a scientific way to achieve and maintain excellent health without the use of any medication.
Earlier this year, I had the chance to discuss nutrition and health with a medical professor who mentioned the healing powers of wheatgrass. Yes, there are a lot of testimonials on the internet about the many health benefits of wheatgrass, but I was interested in actual and sustainable proof.
I visited the Springreen Wheatgrass farm in Midrand to see the quality of natural, nongenetically – modified farming with my own eyes. Since that visit, the results I have experienced are by far better than I could have expected. Increased energy, vastly improved tissue and joint conditions, acid control, a greater level of alertness, change of hair colour (my grey hair turned darker! Fountain of youth?), reduced gastrointestinal satiety(??) and an overall feeling of excellent health, just to mention a few of the many benefits that I have either experienced personally or witnessed.
My normal workday is somewhat between ten to twelve hours daily, plus an average of fifty to sixty kilometres of marathon running per week- and all of that is done with ease since wheatgrass has become part of my daily food intake.
Since gluten is found in wheat grains and not wheatgrass this is no reason for concern. The clean farming of Springreen Wheatgrass is surely a source of excellent nutrition. Everyone who is interested in good health (and boundless energy) should start making wheatgrass a part of their food intake.
