WHAT IS WHEATGRASS?

  • Wheatgrass is actually a vegetable not a grain. It is considered a cereal grass along with barley, alfalfa, etc.
  • The grass is cut and harvested when it is approximately seven inches tall.
  • One of the numerous good things about wheatgrass is that it does not contain the gluten that is in the grain.

Wheatgrass is a complete food made up of:

  • 12.0%    water
  • 70.0%    chlorophyll bonded carbohydrates
  • 12.0%    protein
  •  2.0%     fat
  •  1.8%     minerals
  •  2.2%     crude fiber

In addition, it contains an impressive array of trace minerals, vitamins, amino acids (all eight essential ones), and enzymes.

MAIN DIFFERENCE IN WHEATGRASS AND OUR BLOOD

Chlorophyll is the blood of plants. Its makeup is almost ODidentical to that of hemoglobin in human blood. The only difference is that chlorophyll has magnesium as its central atom. The central atom of hemoglobin ( BLOOD)  is iron. 

Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Hans Fischer while doing research on red blood cells, discovered that chlorophyll is remarkably similar to human blood on the molecular level. When wheatgrass juice is taken internally, its chlorophyll is rapidly assimilated into the bloodstream due to its resemblance to hemoglobin. It enters the red blood cells and works to heal tissues, purify the liver, balance blood sugar, and flush out toxins. Chlorophyll stimulates the production of red blood cells in hemoglobin, which carries oxygen to the cells. Chlorophyll often returns red blood cell counts to normal within four to five days. 

Chlorophyll / Oxygen / Blood

Otto Warburg, a German biochemist, won a Nobel Prize for his study that revealed that cancer cells cannot exist in the presence of oxygen. The enzymes, amino acids, and chlorophyll in wheatgrass juice contain antibacterial compounds that are especially good at destroying anaerobic bacteria that thrive in oxygen-poor blood and tissue.

Chlorophyll increases the function of the heart and affects the vascular system, the intestines, the uterus, and lungs. It helps in the stimulation and regeneration of the liver – the main organ of detoxification in the body.

   

The main difference between wheatgrass, and our blood:

 
     Blood  Central Atom  
   Plants  Chlorophyll  Magnesium  
   Humans  Hemoglobin  Iron  
 Major Components of Wheatgrass Utilized by the Human Body
 WATER  Involved with nearly all body processes
CARBOHYDRATES  Supply fuel
PROTEINS  Build and repair tissue
 FAT  Supplies energy
 MINERALS  Blood building and waste removal
 FIBER  Helps with good elimination
 CHLOROPHYLL  Protects / heals/ cleans/ builds blood / oxygenates (SUN ENERGY)
 ENZYMES  Workers who act as catalysts in many processes including digestion
 AMINO ACIDS  Building materials
 VITAMINS  Growth and development of cells

 Minerals and Vitamins
  •  Wheatgrass has approximately 92 of the 102 known minerals found in the soil.
  • Wheatgrass, has thirteen essential vitamins and minerals, in addition to dozens of trace elements and enzymes.
