Wheatgrasses origin story starts on the brink of the 1930’s when Charles Schnabel observed the amazing results of his cattle grazing on wheatgrass during the spring time. Shockingly he witnessed his beef cattle showing tremendous weight gain, milk production and butter fat from the dairy increasing by more than 30%. #Hold_My_BigMac

Fundamentally wheatgrass powder is made from the freshly sprouted first leaves of the Triticum aestivum plant. Before we dive into the key benefits it’s best you know that 1 ounce (28g) of wheatgrass contains the nutritional equivalent to 2 pounds (900g) of vegetables. #GlutenFree #SorryNotSorry

High in Nutrients

 

Wheatgrass is an excellent source of a variety of vitamins and minerals. It is especially high in vitamins A, C and E, as well as minerals iron, magnesium, calcium and chlorophyll.

Chlorophyll is a green molecule found in plants that absorbs sunlight during photosynthesis and converts it to energy. It's been said to help with blood detoxification, wound healing, gut health, energy & immune system support.

 

Almost Amino Acid Complete

 

The problem? The human body cannot synthesize 9 of the 20 amino acids from other compounds in the body, therefore the body must look externally to obtain the 9 essential amino acids. Furthermore, most plant foods are deficient in one or more essential amino acids, making this a difficult task (especially if you’re vegan).

Wheatgrass consists of 17 amino acids of which 8 are considered essential, meaning your body cannot produce them on its own.

Therefore Wheatgrass presents a good answer for those seeking to bolster their Amino Acid content.

For other complete plant proteins means it contains all 9 essential amino acids see Moringa & Chlorella

 

Rich in Antioxidants

 

Antioxidants are important because they neutralize the damaging effects of free radicals throughout the body. If free radicals are not neutralized by antioxidants, they can damage cells and lead to a number of diseases, including diabetes, cancer and heart disease, arthritis and neurodegenerative diseases.

Wheatgrass contains several important antioxidants, including glutathione and vitamins C and E which are compounds that fight free radicals to prevent cell damage and reduce oxidative stress.

 

Cholesterol

 

LDL stands for low-density lipoproteins. It is sometimes called the "bad" cholesterol because a high LDL level leads to a build-up of cholesterol in your arteries. If you have a high LDL level, this means that you have too much LDL cholesterol in your blood. This extra LDL, along with other substances, forms plaque. The plaque builds up in your arteries; this is a condition called atherosclerosis. It causes the arteries to become hardened and narrowed, which slows down or blocks the blood flow to your heart.

Studies have shown that when rats with high cholesterol were given wheatgrass juice they experienced decreased levels of total cholesterol, “bad” LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. Interestingly, the effects of wheatgrass were similar to those of atorvastatin, a prescription drug commonly used to treat high blood cholesterol.

Another study looked at its effects in rabbits fed a high-fat diet. After 10 weeks, supplementing with wheatgrass helped lower total cholesterol and increase “good” HDL cholesterol, compared to a controlled group nit fed wheatgrass.

 

Kill Cancer Cells

 

Thanks to its high antioxidant content, some test-tube studies have found that wheatgrass may help kill cancer cells. According to one test-tube study, wheatgrass extract decreased the spread of mouth cancer cells by 41%. In another test-tube study, wheatgrass induced cell death and reduced the number of leukemia cells by up to 65% within three days of treatment.

Some research indicates that wheatgrass juice may also help, when combined with traditional cancer treatment to minimize adverse effects. One study found that wheatgrass juice decreased the risk of impaired bone marrow function, a common complication of chemotherapy, in 60 people with breast cancer.

 

Reduce Inflammation

 

Inflammation is a normal response triggered by the immune system to protect the body against injury and infection. However, chronic inflammation is believed to contribute to conditions like cancer, heart disease and autoimmune disorders.

One small study in 23 people looked at the effects of wheatgrass juice on ulcerative colitis, a disease characterized by inflammation in the large intestine. Drinking just under 1/2 cup (100 ml) of wheatgrass juice for one month reduced the disease severity and rectal bleeding in patients with ulcerative colitis.

Wheatgrass is also rich in chlorophyll, a plant pigment with powerful anti-inflammatory properties. One test-tube study showed that chlorophyll inhibited the activity of a specific protein that triggers inflammation.

Furthermore, another test-tube study found that the compounds in chlorophyll reduced inflammation in cells extracted from the arteries.

Wheatgrass juice powder vs wheatgrass powder?

 

As their names suggest, there is one fundamental difference separating juice powders from whole plant powders. At their simplest, whole powders require that the entirety of an ingredient (or, at the very least, all of its edible and viable components) be finely ground then dehydrated into a powder. Similarly, juice powders call for the same grinding process. The difference is that this grinding process is then followed by a second process that filters out and discards all of the fibrous, pulpy, plant materials – leaving just the juice, which is then dehydrated into a powder.

 

Can I drink wheatgrass powder if I’m allergic to grass?

 

If you are allergic to grass, we recommend staying clear of wheatgrass. In fact drop the grass entirely and focus on the wheat. Unless you also have gluten allergy then we suggest _______. #SorryNotSorry

 

Is wheatgrass powder gluten free?

 

Yes, our wheatgrass powder is gluten free! No gluten is produced thanks to the enzymatic process. Enzymatic processes are ones in which two or more ingredients come together to create an entirely different substance.

As gluten is the product of an enzymatic process which combines proteins only present in the grain, wheatgrass does not contain gluten.

 

Are there any side effects after taking Wheatgrass Powder?

 

Consumption of Wheatgrass Powder has not shown any side effects, as it is natural, organic and innocent food. Some individuals may experience some nausea or irregular bowel movements during the first few days as a consequence of the detoxification, however this subsides by itself once the body gets accustomed to the Powder.

 

How much Wheatgrass Powder should be taken daily and for how long?

 

Consuming minimum 40 g fresh Wheatgrass daily for at least 0ne month has been recommended by researchers. About 3 g Powder is obtained from 40 g Wheatgrass.

Consuming minimum 1 (5g) of Wheatgrass Powder is recommended to achieve satisfactory results. Healthy people can also take one spoon in the morning for a month of rejuvenation. This course should be repeated every six months in order to overcome nutrition deficiencies and help to maintain good health.

Positive results are experienced within a week of starting the use of Wheatgrass Powder.

 

Can Wheatgrass Powder be given to children?

 

Wheatgrass Powder is absolutely safe and beneficial to children above 2 years of age. It should be given in small quantities (1/4 spoon) and slowly increased to 1 spoon daily. A little honey can be added for taste or it can be mixed in with their food items but not with milk.

 

Is Wheatgrass Powder as effective as Wheatgrass juice?

 

Wheatgrass in Powder form is most convenient, economical & efficient even more than the traditionally known fresh Wheatgrass Juice. The reason for such is as follows:

 

a) Shelf Life: Fresh Wheatgrass Juice has shelf life of just a few hours whereas Wheatgrass Powder is ‘Best before 1 year from packaging’.

b) Fibre is strained out along with many beneficial nutrients while extracting fresh Wheatgrass Juice whereas in case of Wheatgrass Powder it gets completely retained. This dietary fibre creates miracles to maintain health as it expands on mixing with water & adds bulk to the food in the digestion system. Dietary fibre helps regulate bowel movement, helps flush out toxins, reduces cholesterol & controls blood sugar level.

c) Beneficial nutrients of fresh Wheatgrass along with Chlorophyll are retained in Powder due to the natural climate at our farm & refined manufacturing technique.

d) Concentration is assured as 1 spoon Powder (5 g) = 67g fresh Wheatgrass.

e) Economical as 1 pouch of 200 g Wheatgrass Powder gives 40 glass serving & costs less than a quarter to its equivalent in fresh Wheatgrass Juice.

 

Is it safe to consume during pregnancy?

 

Generally speaking if you are pregnant or trying to conceive, we recommend seeking medical advice before taking Wheatgrass or any of our other products.

Furthermore, to date, there has been no concerted investigation into the use of Wheatgrass in pregnancy and lactation.

Switched To Powder

I used to use fresh wheatgrass everyday but the problem was maintaining it. It was also quite time consuming using it in this way. I recently switched over to powder and am so happy I did! It's so much more convenient and I still benefit from all the nutrients ;)

A Shot in the Morning

My wife and I are starting with a wheatgrass shot first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. We were actually quite pleasantly surprised at the taste. It is in fact very palatable and dissolved really well.
