Wheatgrass Juice – Literally Drinking in Sunlight

Wheatgrass juice…

wheatgrass juice

is a substance so healthy it’s almost miraculous. Full of potent vitamins and minerals, it can help cure and prevent plenty of human ailments, big or small. It can remedy something as simple as tooth decay and really prevent serious diseases like Alzheimer’s. It’s considered to be one of the most effective healing agents on the planet. Wheatgrass juice really is quite phenomenal!

The plant from which wheatgrass came from is nothing remarkable: the common wheat plant. But when harvested and juiced at the time when its nutrients are at their peak, wheatgrass can provide a lot of health benefits to the body. And when is the best time to cut wheatgrass and juice it? Ideally, wheatgrass must be between 7-11 inches tall when it’s cut. This is when the plant is at the brink of its jointing stage, when it will soon shoot up into a massive wheat plant. The power and energy necessary to make that happen is what wheatgrass juice contains.

Who discovered the powers of wheatgrass juice

It was Charles Francis Schnabel who discovered in 1931 that wheatgrass, as well as other kinds of grasses, reach their nutritional peak at the stage just before jointing. He observed that his hens, which were already dying, not only fully recovered when he fed them freshly cut wheat grass, they also doubled their egg production. When wheatgrass juice is first being researched, scientists conducted experiments that will allow them to directly compare wheatgrass to other vegetables. Animals which fed on the common vegetables wasted away much more quickly than the animals who fed on wheatgrass, which seemed to thrive. They conducted studies and discovered that wheatgrass contains a wide variety of healing and rejuvenating agents like vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants. Dr. Schnabel went on to determine how to best grow wheatgrass and the best time to cut them.

However, it was Ann Wigmore who first used wheatgrass juice as a healing substance in the 1950s. Wigmore was a sickly girl early in her life. Her grandmother was a self-taught naturalist, and naturally, Wigmore used herbs and plants to try and cure herself. She used several different plants and soon concluded that wheatgrass is the most effective healing plant. She used an old cast iron meat grinder and to juice the wheatgrass.

Drinking wheatgrass juice is proven to be effective in giving the human body stronger immune system

It reduces inflammation, decreases cravings, detoxifies body cells, improves clarity in thinking, gives clearer eyesight, cleans lymphatic systems, provides better sleep, and many more. The high level of chlorophyll found in wheatgrass is also proven to be an effective anticancer agent, which lessens the activity of mutagens by up to 99%. With all these benefits, you should be more than convinced that drinking wheatgrass juice is good for the body.

    Hi Laura,

    I’m considering get more into juicing to help my chronically low energy levels. I noted that you supply wheat grass locally. I’m in Plymouth and would appreciate finding out more about this.

    Best Wishes,

      Hi Vicky,
      Here’s why I recommend getting wheatgrass powder in the Uk http://www.alkaline-diet-health-tips.com/ukwholefoods. If you’re looking for fresh wheatgrass, let me know and I’ll put you in contact with my ‘supplier’ (sounds a bit dodgy! lol)

    I couldn’t agree more, Laura. However, I wish I was allowed to say so myself, as opposed to having anything I say heavily strangulated by the archaic powers vested in trading standards, by such instruments as the 1939 Cancer Act. Talk about out of date!

    One day, people within the NHS will wake up to the reality that natural is best, that nature produces foods the way it does because they are the form from which we can gain the greatest benefit. The solutions to health, generally, aren’t going to be made in a laboratory. They are in our hands, and for us to use our intellect to understand that is all that is required.

    Thank you for producing this! However, I don’t think I’m even allowed to refer to it as that seen as infringing the rules! Yes, it’s a mad world.

      Thanks Oliver, yes we’re in a very stifled situation at the moment, I agree. We need to do our own research and not be spoon fed what comes out of mainstream media and advertising.
