So What Makes Wheatgrass so Healthy?
One of the elements that makes wheatgrass so good for you is the abundance of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is what makes plants green and aids in the transfer of sunlight into the energy plants need to grow.
Chlorophyll is very simimilar in it’s molecular structure to haemoglobin in human blood. The difference is that iron in blood is replaced with magnesium in chlorophyll. For this reason it is thought that the body can use chlorophyll to build up the blood. It can also dilate the blood vessels to help lower blood pressure. Try it in beetroot juice to specifically address this problem. In addition Chlorophyll purges your system of carbon dioxide and releases free oxygen to give you more energy. Wheatgrass enhances the benefits of juicing with just one daily spoonful
An Army of Antioxidants
Wheatgrass powder has a high concentration of antioxidants. Antioxidants are important because they prevent damage from free radicals. Free radicals are molecules in your body that have an electron missing. This causes them to latch onto cells and cause damage. Once a cell is harmed there is the danger of mutation, which can lead to organ damage and even cancer. Free radicals also cause skin to age more quickly. Antioxidants block this action and protect the cells. The antioxidants in wheatgrass powder include beta carotene, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E. But these vitamins boast even more benefits besides being powerful antioxidants.
- Beta carotene is a form of Vitamin A. Though unlike Vitamin A there is no danger of toxicity in high doses of beta carotene. It has been shown to decrease the symptoms of asthma, help to reduce the risk of certain cancers, help to prevent cataracts, and research is being conducted on the effectiveness of beta carotene in the treatment and prevention of Alzheimer’s.
- Vitamin C helps to prevent colds and viral infections, promotes collagen production, enhances the body’s absorption of iron, and reduces the risk of certain cancers.
- Vitamin E helps to prevent heart disease. It does this by making your blood vessels resist the build up of plaque. Vitamin E also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help to ease the symptoms of arthritis and studies have shown that it may help to prevent macular degeneration in the elderly.
Cleanse & Detox
Healthy wheatgrass is an excellent body cleanser because of its high concentration of saponin. The lymphatic system is the main player in getting rid of toxins in the body and saponin aids this process of expulsion. It also helps your digestive tract to expel waste and decaying fecal matter. This can result in a heightened feeling of rejuvenation and vitality.
The high concentration of essential amino acids, the building blocks of protein sets this supplememt apart. Muscles, skin, organs and cells all need protein to grow, repair and regenerate. Because it is so high in amino acids, healthy wheatgrass has become a staple in weightlifters and bodybuilders diets.
Immune System Boost
Wheatgrass powder supports and stimulates the immune system and helps your body fight disease. It does this with the high concentration of antioxidants, vitamins H and K, and by the alkalizing action of the minerals calcium, potassium, iron and magnesium. When the body’s pH is alkaline your liver is cleansed of toxins, the blood and lymph glands are detoxified and bacteria find it a very unfriendly place to live.
Wheatgrass powder is bursting with essential nutrients in the most convenient and effective form for daily use. Try adding it to a vegetable juicing recipe and discover how it also helps to break down fats, perhaps even helping you to lose a few pounds.
