Benefits of Wheat Grass: It Packs a Major Punch

The Revolution Greens army is feeling better than ever! We think we might have found the real fountain of youth. Ponce De Leon was looking for the wrong thing. If he would have known a couple hundred years ago about the amazing benefits of wheat grass his search would have been over. The truth is wheat grass is one of the most powerful super foods out there. Yet for some reason it is still not mainstream. Since we've been using wheatgrass we've noticed our energy levels are sky high and our overall health has improved dramatically. Here is a quick rundown on the benefits:

-Wheatgrass contains over 90 minerals, including high concentrations of the most alkaline minerals: potassium, calcium, magnesium and sodium

-It contains the essential enzymes: Protease (assists in protein digestion), Cytochrome Oxidase (a powerful anti oxidant), Amylase (facilitates digestion), Lipase (a fat splitting enzyme), Transhydrogenase (strengthens the heart muscle) & Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) (found in all body cells and is known for its ability to lessen the effect of radiation and slow cellular aging)

-Just one teaspoon of Wheat Grass powder, weighing a mere 3.5 grams, is nutritionally equal to an entire spinach salad weighing a full 50 grams - it packs a punch!

-Wheatgrass has more vitamin C than oranges and twice the vitamin A as carrots!

-Wheat grass juice helps your body to build red blood cells which carry oxygen to every cell. By increasing the oxygenation the body you can help offset smog and carbon monoxide and increase your endurance during physical exercise
It also contains 19 amino acids, the building blocks of protein.

Once we all found out about the benefits we made sure wheatgrass became a regular part of our diet. We sure are happy we did. Good news is if you dont want to go to all the way to the store and get it you can grow and make it yourself. However you do it, just make sure to pump it into your diet and you will thank us later.

  1. I have been a wheatgrass enthusiast for years. While visiting a health food store I discovered an organic wheatgrass that combines the roots with the blades. It is the ONLY WHEATGRASS POWDER IN THE WORLD using this technique. It is grown Aeroponically; soil free, fungus free, pollution free and grown in 100% purified oxygen. The roots contain cancer fighting nutrients not found in the blades. One of the nutrients, P4D1, has been shown in laboratory tests to eat the protein sheath off of a cancer cell so the white blood cells can attack and destroy them.
    Another plus is by combining the roots with the blades the taste is more palatable and not strong and nauseous as fresh wheatgrass. You can drink it straight, no need to mix with anything to hide the taste, just enjoy wheatgrass!
    Even kids love it!
