I went to the healthfood store today to pick up some supplements. While browsing through the produce section, I noticed they offered wheatgrass flats. I thought, “well I guess its worth a try”, so I bought some. It isnt finished growing, so when it is, I will let you know how I like it. Im kinna scared of the taste from everything I have heard. As long as I can keep it down, things will be great! Here is a website that shows a very simple way how to grow it, and the amazing benefits of it.
Hippocrates Health Institute shares how important it is in our diet. The list goes on and on… Its a very powerful regimen. Here is there link.
Here is some of what Ann Wigmore says about wheatgrass…
“Increases red blood-cell count and lowers blood pressure. It cleanses the blood, organs and gastrointestinal tract of debris. Wheatgrass also stimulates metabolism and the body’s enzyme systems by enriching the blood. It also aids in reducing blood pressure by dilating the blood pathways throughout the body.
Stimulates the thyroid gland, correcting obesity, indigestion, and a host of other complaints.
Restores alkalinity to the blood. The juice’s abundance of alkaline minerals helps reduce over-acidity in the blood. It can be used to relieve many internal pains, and has been used successfully to treat peptic ulcers, ulcerative colitis, constipation, diarrhea, and other complaints of the gastrointestinal tract.
Is a powerful detoxifier, and liver and blood protector. The enzymes and amino acids found in wheatgrass can protect us from carcinogens like no other food or medicine. It strengthens our cells, detoxifies the liver and bloodstream, and chemically neutralizes environmental pollutants.
Fights tumors and neutralizes toxins. Recent studies show that wheatgrass juice has a powerful ability to fight tumors without the usual toxicity of drugs that also inhibit cell-destroying agents. The many active compounds found in grass juice cleanse the blood and neutralize and digest toxins in our cells.” Ann Wigmore, The Wheatgrass Book.
