Whats So Great About Wheatgrass?

Nutritionally, wheatgrass is a complete food that contains 98 of the 102 earth elements and Liquid Health's wheatgrass juice is an excellent way to get dark greens in the diet – pound for pound, it’s more than twenty times denser in nutrients than other vegetables and juicing unlocks even more nutrients from wheatgrass, making them more concentrated and usable to the cells of the body.

And finally – by taking wheatgrass juice, one may feel an increase in strength and endurance, renewed health and spirituality, and experience an overall sense of well-being.

The composition of Wheatgrass

Vitamins
Pro-vitamin A(beta-carotene) for growth, tissue repair, eyesight and immune system.
Vitamin B1 (thiamine) for combustion of carbohydrates and functioning of heart, nerves and skeletal muscles. Vitamin B2 (riboflavine) for production of energy and activating of vitamin B6.
Vitamin B3 (niacin) assists in the energy production, and promotes the action of the nervous system.
Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) for the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and fats and production of hormones.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) for a healthy digestion, a strong immune system, the production of red blood cells and a proper functioning of the nervous system.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) for a good resistance, strong bones, protect against free radicals and iron absorption.
Vitamin E (tocopherol) for resistance, production of red blood cells, protecting against free radicals and maintain healthy muscles and tissues. Vitamin K for blood clotting and bone metabolism.
Minerals
Calcium for strong teeth, bones and joints, blood clotting, muscle contraction and proper functioning of the nervous system. Phosphorus for strong bones and teeth, the structure of DNA cells, a healthy metabolism and energy supply.
Iron for the transportation of oxygen to body cells.
Potassium for a healthy nervous system, regulating blood pressure, muscle contraction and energy metabolism.
Cobalt for the production of vitamin B12 and red blood cells.
Copper makes it possible that iron absorbs oxygen and is required for pigment formation in skin and hair.
Magnesium for strong bones, creation and proper functioning of muscle cells, metabolism and the transmission of nerve impulses.
Manganese for the production of bone tissue and the metabolism of carbohydrates, amino acids and cholesterol.
Selenium neutralizes harmful free radicals and detoxifies heavy metals in the body.
Sulfur for the formation of collagen, the absorption of moisture in the intestines and regulate electrical activity in the brains.
Chlorophyll (green substance in leaves)
Chlorophyll allows for photosynthesis in plants and contains transformed energy from sunlight. Chlorophyll is chemically similar to human hemoglobin, the protein that carries oxygen through the veins. Chlorophyll stimulates blood generation and is blood-purifying, prevents anemia, promotes blood circulation and normalizes blood pressure.
Enzymes
Enzymes are biocatalyst and play an important role in metabolism. Enzymes convert proteins, fats and carbohydrates into usable nutrients that are easily assimilated by the body. As one gets older, the natural production of enzymes decreases. The stock should therefore be supplemented with enzymes from food. Fruit and vegetables are enzyme-rich food.
Antioxidants
Antioxidants protect the body against free radicals, oxidative particles resulting from the release of energy from nutrients or enter the body through, for example tobacco smoke and polluted air. The free radicals cause damage to body cells and play an important role in diseases and infirmities of old age.
Essential and nonessential amino acids
Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins (proteins) and muscle tissue. They are necessary for all bodily processes related to growth, recovery, energy supply, fat burning, brain function and even the mood. A part of the amino acids the body can create them itself (non-essential amino acids), the other amino acids are only available via food supply (essential amino acids).
