55 Specific Wheatgrass Benefits

Wheatgrass the elixir of life! 50 plus benefits of drinking wheatgrass juice.

“Until man duplicates a blade of grass, nature can laugh at his so-called scientific knowledge.” Thomas A. Edison

Wheatgrass consumption for medicinal purposes has been in use for more than 5000 thousand years. The ancient Egyptian and Mesopotamian civilizations, designated wheatgrass as a sacred plant that was used in more than 100 healing modalities. The Egyptians considered it the elixir of life, and the Chinese used it for blood detoxification.

List of 55 Specific Wheatgrass Benefits

  1. A shot of wheatgrass is 70% chlorophyll, 12% water, 12% protein, 2% crude fiber, 2% fat, 1.8% minerals. Organically grown wheatgrass contains 92 of the 102 known minerals. Wheatgrass also contains 13 essential vitamins and minerals, and 20 plus amino acids are found in wheatgrass.
  2. Dr. Ann Wigmore taught, when we drink wheatgrass juice, regularly we feel a positive difference in strength, endurance, health, and spirituality, and experience a sense of well-being.
  3. 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.
  4. Science has proven that chlorophyll arrests growth and development of unfriendly bacteria. Because wheatgrass is 70% Chlorophyll, it makes short work of bacteria and can be used inside and outside the body as a healer.
  5. Dr. Birscher, a research scientist, called the chlorophyll in wheatgrass “concentrated sun power.” He said, “Chlorophyll increases the function of the heart, affects the vascular system, the intestines, the uterus, and the lungs.”
  6. Wheatgrass juice is great for blood disorders of all kinds, including anemia. A recent study in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that supplementing with the natural antioxidants found in wheatgrass “holds great promise in overcoming the ill effects of oxygen toxicity,.”
  7. Today, we know wheatgrass is one of the most potent sources of living chlorophyll available. Wheatgrass juice is great for blood disorders of all kinds, including anemia.
  8. A recent study in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that supplementing with the natural antioxidants found in wheatgrass “holds great promise in overcoming the ill effects of oxygen toxicity,.”
  9. Wheatgrass Juice reduces high blood pressure and enhances the capillaries.
  10. Wheatgrass juice can be taken by a human or animal orally, vaginally, as a poultice and as a colon implant. Wheatgrass implants (enemas) are great for healing and detoxifying the colon walls. The implants also heal and cleanse the internal organs.
  11. How to do wheatgrass implants – After doing a pure water enema, wait 10 minutes, and then implant 3-6 ounces of wheatgrass juice. Retain it for 20 minutes.
  12. The chlorophyll in wheatgrass goes into the bloodstream, fills the tissues, extricates dying and diseased cell, making room for new healthy live cells, rejuvenating tissues, thus slowing the aging process.
  13. The liquid chlorophyll in wheatgrass washes unwanted drug deposits from the body.
  14. Wheatgrass combined with a raw living foods diet cures acne in days and removes scars after it has been ingested for six to eight months.
  15. Wheatgrass juice acts as a detergent in the body and is used as a body deodorant.
  16. A small amount of wheatgrass in the human diet helps prevents tooth decay.
  17. The chlorophyll in the wheatgrass helps purify the liver.
  18. Toxins in and on the body are more easily neutralized by the chlorophyll in wheatgrass.
  19. Diabetics benefit from the chlorophyll in the wheatgrass as it balances blood sugar.
  20. It is easily absorbed and carries high levels of oxygen and light energy to the body. Being loaded with chlorophyll and chlorophyll being the first product of light, therefore means wheatgrass contains massive amounts of light energy.
  21. Chlorophyll is the lifeblood of wheatgrass and is quickly assimilated into our bodies and is just one molecule different in structure than our own blood.
  22. Being loaded with oxygen wheatgrass helps us to think clearer as it feeds our brain, tissues, and organs with optimal levels of chlorophyll based oxygenated nutrients.
  23. The amino acids in wheatgrass are absorbed directly into the blood and act to neutralize toxic substances like cadmium, nicotine, strontium, mercury and polyvinyl chloride (a type of plastic) by changing them into insoluble salts that the body can eliminate quickly, rejuvenating the tissues, thus slowing the aging process.
  24. Wheatgrass also rebuilds the bloodstream. Studies of various animals have shown the chlorophyll in wheatgrass raises the red blood cell count. The red cell count was returned to normal within 4 to 5 days of the administration of chlorophyll, even in those animals which were known to be extremely anemic or low in red cell count.
  25. Just soaking in a bathtub of wheatgrass bath for a ½ hour for each day for 5 days will raise the red blood cell count.
  26. Dr. Ann Wigmore proved that wheatgrass takes only minutes to get digested and therefore uses up very little of the body’s energy.
  27. Wheatgrass is also a powerful heavy metal detoxifier and studies have shown to remove heavy metals from the body. Wheatgrass also has a positive effect on sterility and can restore fertility. (The high magnesium content in chlorophyll builds enzymes that restore the sex hormones.)
  28. Wheatgrass juice held in the mouth for 5 minutes will help eliminate toothaches. It pulls poisons from the gums
  29. Do what Dr. Ann Wigmore did and drink Wheatgrass Juice to keep your hair from graying.
  30. Toxic side effects – Wheatgrass has no known toxic side effects and is a powerful full body detoxifier.
  31. In the American Journal of Surgery (1940), Benjamin Gruskin, M.D. recommends chlorophyll for its antiseptic benefits.
  32. Clears up foul smelling odors.
  33. Neutralizes Strep infections.

  41. Heals hemorrhoids and rectal sores.
  42. Treats inflammation of the uterine cervix.
  43. Gets rid of parasitic vaginal infections.
  44. Reduces typhoid fever symptoms.
  45. Cures advanced pyorrhea in many cases.
  46. Dissolves the scars that are formed in the lungs from breathing acid gasses.
  47. Cut out spending money on costly probiotics as wheatgrass juice is high in live enzymes.
  48. As a poultice, wheatgrass fiber can provide amazing results on ulcerated skin, boils, acne, and infections.
  49. Gum disease of the mouth is helped by rinsing and applying a wheatgrass poultice. Use the fiber(pulp) left over from juicing to make a poultice.
  50. B17 in wheatgrass has been shown to have positive effects on the immune system.
  51. Help rebuild and balance the immune system, enabling the body to strengthen itself so it can eliminate cancer cells.
  52. Wheatgrass may be an anti-cancer super food, precisely due to selenium and laetrile which are anti-cancer compounds found in wheatgrass.
  53. Cancer cells like acidic atmosphere and wheatgrass help alkalize the body.
  54. With wheatgrass, the body becomes a more difficult place for cancer cells to continue thriving.
  55. Along with Dr. Ann Wigmore and like minded colleagues we have been showing people how to take charge of their lives, drink wheatgrass, and recover from chronic and life-threatening health disorders for 100 years.
  56. BONUS – Plant a small trays of wheatgrass and set them throughout your home, especially placing them on your nightstand. e You will notice the air in your home stays fresh and oxygenated and that you will sleep much sounder.

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:

  Energizer  

How Does Wheatgrass Work

  • It is easily absorbed by the blood stream.
  • Less digestive work for the body means more energy and less sleep is required.
  • You will experience clarity of thought due to more oxygen reaching the brain.
 Appetite Depressant
  •  Wheatgrass is a complete food. As a result the appestat in the brain naturally shuts down the appetite.
 Digestive Aid
  •  Wheatgrass enzymes act as catalysts in the digestion of food and add valuable nutrients that are quickly absorbed into the blood stream.
 Fiber
  •  Wheatgrass provides fiber and chlorophyll, which helps to achieve and maintain colon health and regularity. We use the juice for rapid detoxification and rejuvenation.
 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.
