Known as the ‘wonder’ grass, the many consumers of the green genie claim to a feeling of positive improvement in strength, endurance, health, mind-set, and experience a general sense of wellbeing.
Who wouldn’t want to experience all of those benefits? But how does it do it?
Wheatgrass juice is 70% Chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is the basis of all plant life and is the first product of light, containing more energy than any other element. Chlorophyll can be extracted from many plants, but Wheatgrass is superior because it is found to have over 100 elements needed by man, which it extracts from its organic soil.
Wheatgrass taken orally – normally as a Wheatgrass ‘shot’, is high in oxygen, like all green plants that contain chlorophyll. The brain and all the body tissues function at an optimum healing level in a highly oxygenated environment. Plus, the bonus is a ‘shot’ can be digested in as little as a minute.
The first benefit of your Wheatgrass ‘shot’ is to the digestion. The Chlorophyll in the ‘shot’ is an antibacterial and can be used inside as an intestinal healer, to aid digestion as it is high in enzymes, then to arrest growth and development of unfriendly bacteria. It also helps to purify the liver therefore aiding in the neutralization of toxins within the body. Wheatgrass is great for constipation and keeping the bowels open.
Then Wheatgrass helps to rebuild the bloodstream, this aids its Chlorophyll into the tissues of the body where it refines them and makes them over. It reduces high blood pressure and enhances the capillaries, enhancing the functions of the lungs, heart, intestines and the uterus. Due to the enhancement to the circulation certain other areas are improved such as the healing of the lungs from dangerous pollution inhalation and then the removal of heavy metals from the body.
Lastly it improves the outer most layer of the body, and the one on show….the skin!!!
Wheatgrass can benefit the skin either used internally or topically, even to the extent of curing acne and even removing scars after it has been ingested for seven to eight months. Drinking wheatgrass will also help such skin problems as eczema or psoriasis. When used topically it is a fabulous skin cleanser, even absorbing through the skin for nutrition.
So whether it is feeling better or looking better……the benefits of Wheatgrass are in!!!
