Why Use Fresh Wheatgrass Pre Cut in Bags Ready to Juice.
Cutting wheatgrass does not degrade the sell walls of the plant so the plant does not loose the goodness that is locked within it. In tests we have carried out here at the farm it as shown that once growing wheatgrass reaches it’s operation high it soon starts to degrade and go yellow in colour, but if it is cut and cooled it will maintain a good cell wall strength much longer than if left to grow.
Do not mix up pre cut ready to juice with what you may have read about juicing and then not drinking it right away. NEVER juice wheatgrass and store it not even in the fridge. Once wheatgrass is juiced the cell walls have been broken down and they start to degrade by means of oxidation. In a short time the Live Enzymes and many of the beneficial vitamins and minerals are destroyed and a taste of iron can soon start to come to the front when the juice is tasted.
Fresh Wheatgrass is one the most nutritious and cleansing juice there is and by far the best known of the juicing greens. In its natural state, Fresh wheatgrass is indigestible for humans; This does not mean you can’t chew wheatgrass it’s just that your body is not set up to deal with the pulp after you’ve removed all the juice by chewing and sucking it all out of the pulp. You will get a far better juice rate if you chew wheatgrass, although it may be a little more messy. Luckily, fresh-squeezed wheatgrass juice is easily digested.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION ON WHEATGRASS Imagine a food that actually contains nearly every known mineral, very high amounts of essential amino acids, vitamins and enzymes and could protect you from carcinogens like no other food or medicine can. A food that strengthens our cells, detoxifies the liver, bloodstream, and chemically neutralizes environmental pollutants. Imagine all this and then consider that this food can easily be grown on your window sill, patio, in your green house or in your garden at almost negligible cost. This is the legacy of wheatgrass a green super food brought to prominence in the last century and chamipioned by many since then. In this article you’ll find lots of amazing facts and highly useful information based on years of research by many people. The juice should be extracted either by chewing or utilising a slow turning gear juicer. The easy health manual juicer is very good for this purpose. Centrifugal juicers cannot extract juice from the strong fibres of grass. And their high speeds create heat that would destroy sensitive enzymes. Wheatgrass needs the heavy-duty action of a masticating gear juicer to slowly press the fibres. A daily ‘shot’ of 30ml can be enough for increasing vitality. Some individual practitioners advocate more for heavier detox regimes or for those with healing crises. It’s a good idea to start small and build up to 60 – 120ml of grass juice a day, as you do this watch your energy levels climb.
The Benefits of wheat grass (excerpts from “The Wheatgrass Book” by Ann Wigmore) wheatgrass… Increases red blood cell count, lowers blood pressure…It cleanses the blood, organs and gastrointestinal tract of debris. It stimulates metabolism and bodily enzyme systems in enriching the blood by increasing red blood cell count, and in dilating the blood pathways throughout the body, reducing blood pressure. Stimulates the thyroid, correcting obesity, indigestion, etc. The thyroid gland is also stimulated and normalized by the use of wheat grass juice – an important step toward the correction of obesity, indigestion and a host of other complaints. Restores alkalinity to the blood…Wheat grass has an alkalising effect on the blood. Its abundance of alkaline minerals helps reduce over acidity in the blood. It can be used to relieve many internal pains. It has been used successfully to treat peptic ulcers, ulcerative colitis, constipation, diarrhoea, and other complaints of the gastrointestinal tract. How to drink it…Wheatgrass juice is best taken in small amounts throughout the course of the day, always on an empty or nearly empty stomach. In general, two to four ounces every day or every other day is sufficient. Slowly sipping small quantities of the juice gives your body an opportunity to get used to its taste and effect. Taking one to two-ounce drinks straight or mixed with other juices (fruit & vegetable) and sipping slowly, will help prevent nausea or stomach upset. On a healing regime, Ann suggests you drink one or two oz up to 3 or 4 x a day. And to take one day of rest. Powerful detoxifier and liver and blood protector…The enzymes and amino acids found in Wheatgrass can protect us from carcinogens like no other food or medicine can. It strengthens our cells, detoxifies the liver, bloodstream, and chemically neutralizes environmental pollutants. Fights tumours and neutralizes toxins….Recent studies show that Wheatgrass juice has a powerful ability to fight tumours without the usual toxicity of drugs that also inhibit cell-destroying agents. The many active compounds found in wheatgrass juice can cleanse the blood and neutralize and digest toxins in our cells. Whether you have a cut finger you want to heal or you desire to lose five pounds…enzymes must do the actual work. The life and abilities of the enzymes found naturally in our bodies can be extended if we help them from the outside by adding exogenous enzymes, like the ones found in Wheatgrass juice. Remarkable similarity to our own blood…The 2nd important nutritional aspect of chlorophyll is its remarkable similarity’ to haemoglobin, the compound that carries oxygen in the blood. Dr. Hagiwara a Japanese science and health educator, is a leading advocate for the use of grass as food and medicine. He reasons that since chlorophyll is soluble in fat particles, and since fat particles are absorbed directly in to the blood via the lymphatic system, that chlorophyll can also be absorbed in this way. In other words, when the “blood” of plants is absorbed in humans it is transformed into human blood, which transports nutrients to every cell of the body. Wheat grass implants reverse damage from inside the lower bowel…In the case of illness, they stimulate a rapid cleansing of the lower bowel and draw out accumulations of debris. Hold for 20 minutes. Externally eliminates itching almost immediately…Wheat grass juice externally applied to the skin can help eliminate itching almost immediately. It will soothe sunburned skin…and also acts as a disinfectant. Rubbed into the scalp before a shampoo, it will help mend damaged hair and alleviate itchy, scaly scalp conditions. Wheat grass juice is soothing and healing for…cuts, burns, scrapes, rashes, poison ivy, athlete’s foot, insect bites, boils, sores , open ulcers, tumours & so on. As a sleep aid…merely place a tray of living Wheat grass near the head of your bed. It will enhance the oxygen in the air and generate healthful negative ions to help you sleep more soundly. Use as a poultice and replace every two to four hours. Add some to your bath water…and settle in for a nice, long soak. Gargle with wheat grass…to sweeten the breath and firm up and tighten gums. Don’t cook it…We can only get the benefits of the many enzymes found in grass by eating it uncooked. Cooking destroys 100 percent of the enzymes in food. Neutralizes toxins…Wheat grass neutralizes toxic substances like cadmium, nicotine, strontium, mercury and polyvinyl chloride. The benefits of a liquid oxygen transfusion…Wheat grass juice contains liquid oxygen. Oxygen is vital to many body processes: it stimulates digestion (the oxidation of food), clearer thinking (the brain utilizes 25 percent of the bodily oxygen supply), and protective oxygenation of the blood (a defence against anaerobic bacteria). Cancer cells cannot exist in the presence of oxygen. Turns grey hair to its natural colour again, raises energy levels…Daily consumption of Wheat grass and sprouts can turn grey hair to its natural colour again, and give you a limitless energy level. Beauty treatment that slows down the aging process…Wheat grass will cleanse your blood and help rejuvenate aging cells, slowing the aging process down, way down, making you feel more alive now. It will help tighten loose and sagging skin. Lessens effect of radiation…One enzyme found in wheat grass, SOD, lessens the effects of radiation and acts as an anti-inflammatory compound that may prevent cellular damage following heart attacks or exposure to irritants. Restores fertility…Wheat grass restores fertility and promotes youthfulness. Just soaking in it can double your red blood cell count…Dr. Bernard Jensen, found that none of the blood builders are superior to green juices and wheat grass. In his book Chlorophyll Magic from Living Plant Life, he mentions several cases where he was able to double the red blood cell count in a matter of days merely by having patients soak in a chlorophyll-water bath. Blood building results occur even more rapidly when patients drink green juices and Wheat grass regularly. Ann Wigmore on her own experience with wheat grass…At fifty years of age my hair was gray, I had a terrible case of colitis and other colon problems, I suffered from low energy and had no clear direction in life. Out of desperation I turned to nature for relief. …In wheat grass, raw foods and exercise, I found what I feel is as close to the fountain of youth as we are going to get. Twenty-five years after my discovery, my hair was turned fully natural brown again. My weight has been a stable 119 and my energy level is limitless… 40 Things You May Not Know About WheatGrass? 1.
