Questions you may be asking yourself: Is it soft and moist? Are there seriously no refined sugars? Will my whole family enjoy this?
Recently, I went on a trip to the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center in Patagonia, Arizona where they grow their own food (including wheatgrass). They told me that the folks over at the Hippocrates Center know their grass better than anyone. Below are the benefits that are listed on their website and after reading through the list I would be surprised if anyone wouldn’t want to try this miracle juice.
Some of the superior qualities of wheatgrass and the juice that can be extracted from its blades include the following:
Increases red blood-cell count and lowers blood pressure. It cleanses the blood, organs and gastrointestinal tract of debris. Wheatgrass also stimulates metabolism and the body’s enzyme systems by enriching the blood. It also aids in reducing blood pressure by dilating the blood pathways throughout the body.
• Stimulates the thyroid gland, correcting obesity, indigestion, and a host of other complaints.
Restores alkalinity to the blood. The juice’s abundance of alkaline minerals helps reduce over-acidity in the blood. It can be used to relieve many internal pains, and has been used successfully to treat peptic ulcers, ulcerative colitis, constipation, diarrhea, and other complaints of the gastrointestinal tract.
Buying organic makes sense for the health of the earth, farm workers and your family … But if you’re pinching pennies (and who isn’t these days?), choose from this list to avoid pesticide residue.
