WHY Wheatgrass?

WHY Wheatgrass?

Chlorophyll is actually responsible for the green pigmentation in plants. What does chlorophyll do? Chlorophyll is what absorbs energy from the sun to facilitate photosynthesis in plants. Chlorophyll to plants is like blood to humans. It is important in many plant metabolic functions such as growth and respiration.

Also Chlorophyll is chemically similar in composition to that of human blood, except that the central atom in chlorophyll is magnesium, while iron is central in human blood. This, and the fact that chlorophyll is central in plan metabolism, had prompted scientists to find out if chlorophyll can offer similar benefits to humans. A number of chlorophyll researches have been focused on finding out the potential chlorophyll health benefits in humans.

What’s so great about CHLOROPHYLL?

True enough, chlorophyll has been seen to provide health benefits to those who take them. It has anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and wound-healing properties. Here are some of the known chlorophyll benefits:

It has been seen to help in the growth and repair of tissues.

Chlorophyll helps in neutralizing the pollution that we breathe in and intake everyday – a good supplement for smokers.

It efficiently delivers magnesium and helps the blood in carrying the much needed oxygen to all cells and tissues.

It is also found to be useful in assimilating and chelating calcium and other heavy minerals.

It had been seen to have a good potential in stimulating red blood cells to improve oxygen supply.

Along with other vitamins such as A, C and E, chlorophyll has been seen to help neutralize free radicals that do damage to healthy cells.

Chlorophyll is also an effective deodorizer to reduce bad breath, urine, fecal waste, and body odor.

It may reduce the ability of carcinogens to bind with the DNA in different major organs in the body.

Chlorophyll may be useful in treating calcium oxalate stone ailments, and is an anti-atherogenic activity and is used to treat infected wounds.

It has antimutagenic and anti-carcinogenic properties so that it may be helpful in protecting your body against toxins and in reducing drug side effects.

Chlorophyll Sources – Where to Buy Chlorophyll Supplements
The only obvious chlorophyll sources are green leafy plants. However, cooking destroys much of the chlorophyll. If you want to enjoy the aforementioned benefits of chlorophyll, it is best to get your regular supply through chlorophyll supplements.

Chlorophyll extracts, chlorophyll liquid solutions and chlorophyll tablets are now widely available and can be bought in tablet form, however we always recommend FRESH Wheatgrass JUICES over any other method. Chlorophyll benefits can allow you to enjoy a stronger immune system, strong set of tissues and organs, and a naturally healthy body and life.

Here’s a great recipe we love for those who are just beginners!

A Non-Violent Diet is a Humanitarian Diet

A Non-Violent Diet is a Humanitarian Diet

Jay and I sometimes are a bit reticent when we speak about a Vegan diet. It threatens many people who still think that eating animal based foods is the ultimate way to eat, or the only kind of diet humans should be eating, or are feeling defensive, because food habits can be quite personal and hard to change.
However, as Jay and I both age, we can see that the ONLY way we will be able to sustain ourselves on this planet in the future, in an empowering and healthful way, is if we can unite as much as we can by changing our ways of eating, thinking and sustaining ourselves.

Obviously there are so many other ways we need to do to transform the way we live on this planet, but since Jay and I have been teaching a non-violent diet for over 100 years, collectively, we want to focus on what we know and what we have observed for many decades.

Changing our diets is the fastest and most effective ways we can change our world today……

But the bottom line, is most of us are attached to the ways we think and live, eat and express ourselves, but we are asking you to try to imagine our lives being rich in vitality, longevity and balance…..THIS is what a Vegan Diet can and will do for YOU!

Next time you reach for a meal, or go to the grocery store, try to go just one week without eating foods that are animal based…..try to juice everyday some powerful greens like the one recipe we are leaving for you today and then see how you feel. This is the easiest way to start create a non-violent way of eating, and in time your entire world will transform itself…..because once our diet changes, our lives take on a powerfully transforming quality.

Juicing is the BEST way to start….even if you don’t change a thing…….trust us!

Here’s our Life Transforming Supergreen ORGANIC Tonic!

4 ribs celery
1 cup spinach
1 cup parsley
1 inch fresh ginger root
1 lime with skin
3 golden delicious apples

ANY juicer can juice these greens and apples, and if some of the pulp is full of the un-juiced greens, put the pulp through the juicer again….It helps,

but it’s not really the best way to juice greens. If you can get a chance to review our Power Grind Pro Juicer page, you can see the ‘best’ juicer we have
ever seen when it comes to overall GREAT juicing; greens, carrots, fruits, vegetables…nuts, seeds and yes…wheatgrass!
Here’s to Joyful and Successful Juicing!
