Prepare yourself for the change in the seasons! Boost your immunity by drinking the most complete nutrient on the planet. Yes, there is something like that.
It’s called wheatgrass … or as some like to call it: “green gold.”
Nutritionists rave about wheatgrass because it gives you the perfect energy boost and gears up your entire system toward maximum strength.
Did I mention that just one ounce of fresh wheatgrass juice is equivalent to eating two pounds of green salad? Two POUNDS!
By drinking one ounce of green goodness you are supplying your body with healing nutrients. So what is in this super food anyway?
Wheatgrass juice contains chlorophyll (nearly identical to the hemoglobin in red blood cells), all minerals known to mankind, and vitamins A, B-complex, C, E, and K. Wheatgrass is extremely rich in protein, and contains 17 amino acids, the building blocks of protein and key for a proper functioning nervous system.
Loaded with sizzling nutrients, wheatgrass builds your stamina, helps detox and cleanse, reduces your cravings, aids your digestive tract, and supercharges an undernourished and stressed body.
How did the wheatgrass craze get started?
It’s all thanks to Dr. Ann Wigmore, whose research was inspired by her grandmother who healed soldiers in WWI with wild grass and used in on herself to heal colon cancer. At the Ann Wigmore Institute in Puerto Rico and Hippocrates Health Institute in Florida, wheatgrass has helped many patients recover from serious illness.
So how can I get my hands on some of this green gold, you’re wondering? Just visit your favorite juice bar or look in the frozen section of your organic food store.
To receive maximum nutritional benefit, drink one ounce of wheatgrass slowly on an empty stomach in the morning.
To soften the taste (which can be strong and bitter), bite into a slice of orange after drinking it, or mix it together with other vegetables to suit your taste. You can also chew on a piece of fresh mint or brush your teeth right afterwards!
Wait 30 minutes before you eat or drink anything else. This allows your body to absorb the nutrients.
Experience the Green Gold Rush by drinking one ounce of wheatgrass every day for a week. We bet you will be running back for more!
