Wheatgrass has the amaizing ability to concentrate maximum nutrients from the soil.
Scientists have established that it has to be cultivated carefully and harvested at the “joining “stage (6 – 7 days in tropical climate) when it’s nutritional content is at its peak.
Wheatgrass is naturally rich source of Vitamins, Minerals, Amino acids, Enzymes, Chlorophyll and Dietary Fibre.
Wheatgrass is said to contain more than 90 different nutritious substances and 19 Amino acids including 9 EAA (essential amino acids).
The molecular structure of Chlorophyll contained in Wheatgrass bears a close to resemblance to the substance called Hemin contained in human blood. Dieticians therefore call Wheatgrass as ” Green Blood”.
The pH (hydrogen molecules) value of human blood and Wheatgrass both is about 7(alkaline) & is therefore quickly absorbed in the blood and is highly beneficial.
100 g Wheatgrass Powder,(obtained from 1kg of fresh Wheatgrasss), can supply nourishment equal to that obtained from 23kg of selected vegetables.
Wheatgrass Powder is high in dietary fiber and thus helps maintain blood sugar level,cholesterol level,prevents constipation and cancer.
