Packed with a balanced supply of vital nutrients, wheat grass juice has a cornucopia of benefits. It contains an abundant supply of chlorophyll and hence it is called ‘green blood’ because of its similarity in structure to haemoglobin. It contains magnesium and is essential for about 30 enzymes in our bodies. The vital health giving powers of wheat grass juice help fight a host of medical conditions like chromic fatigue, anaemia, high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, allergies, wrinkles, lack lustre skin, liver problems, colds, asthama, sinusitis etc. Wheat grass juice is especially effective in the treatment of anaemia.
At Health Total, when we put anaemic patients on wheat grass therapy, their blood tests improve dramatically. Research indicates that one kg of wheat grass can supply the nutrients equivalent to 25 kgs of vegetables. Wheat grass juice is alkaline in nature. It contains active chlorophyll, which purifies the blood, and detoxifies the body. It gets digested and absorbed within 30 minutes of intake.
It can be taken in the juice form, or by chewing its leaves. About 100gms of wheat grass yields 100ml of juice. This juice should be taken on an empty stomach early in the morning or later in the day, 3 hours after a meal. If you are suffering from low immunity, headaches, frequent colds, etc you can begin by taking 50ml of wheat grass juice daily and increase it to 100ml daily. But if you are suffering from a chromic disease like diabetes, heart disease, asthama, cancer then you can begin by taking 25ml of wheat grass juice daily and slowly increase it to 200-250ml daily.
How to make the wheat grass juice:You can extract the juice by placing 100gm of wheat grass in a mixer. Add water and blend. Strain and drink immediately. If you leave it out for sometime, the chlorophyll in it tends to become less active and its other vital nutrients begin to get oxidised, which makes the juice therapy less effective.
All of us must take advantage of wheat grass therapy which will help eliminate toxins from our bodies. The healthy, must consume 50ml daily to sustain good health and those with chromic problems must consume 100 – 200ml of this juice daily to prevent further complications and to assure fast recovery from illness.
We strongly recommend it as something that can revolutionize your health.
