Many of you have asked for more information on the components of wheatgrass and how it works. This is a quick overview of what we discussed in our wheatgrass familiarization class. I hope these charts will help you to better understand the wonder of wheatgrass and have a better knowledge of how and why it works to heal, balance and restore our bodies.
Love and blessings,
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:
|Major Components of Wheatgrass Utilized by the Human Body|
|WATER||Involved with nearly all body processes|
|PROTEINS||Build and repair tissue|
|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|

According to several alternative health practitioners and researchers, the fix for liver difficulties could be as straightforward as repeating certain affirmations, or “corrective thought-patterns,” to overwrite the problematic angry thoughts – essentially canceling them out and replacing the harmful effects of the angry thinking with the more healing and beneficial chemistry and effects of healthier thinking and thought-patterns. Louise Hay, in her book, “Heal Your Body,” recommends a number of affirmations for liver health, including.

Tomorrow I will start again, as I feel so much better when I drink it.
