NEWS: This superfood is now available in the SANEStore as a convenient whole-food powder so you can more easily enjoy it in smoothies and recipes.
Our raw organic Wheatgrass Powder is an easy way to enjoy all the wonderful benefits of this incredible green food.
Organic raw wheatgrass powder is a powerful detoxifier of the liver, blood, and gastrointestinal tract while chemically neutralizing toxins. The enzymes and amino acids found in wheatgrass can help protect the body from free radicals and carcinogens. Wheatgrass also stimulates metabolism and the body’s enzyme systems by enriching the blood and increasing red blood-cell count. It may also aid in reducing blood pressure by dilating the blood pathways throughout the body. Recent studies suggest that wheatgrass has a powerful ability to help fight tumors without the usual toxicity of drugs.
Wheatgrass Powder should not be confused with Wheatgrass Juice Powder. Wheatgrass Powder is made by drying the whole grass leaf and then milling it into a fine powder. Wheatgrass Juice Powder is made by first juicing the Wheatgrass and removing all of the cellulose so a pure juice concentrate is left. Then the juice is dried into a powder.
Wheatgrass is rich in protein and includes all eight of the essential amino acids, as well as 13 of the remaining 16 non essential amino acids. Besides containing most vitamins, minerals and an excellent source of living chlorophyll, organic wheatgrass has three other special components which make it particularly valuable:
- Superoxide Dismutase (SOD)
- P4D1 Enzyme
- Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs)
Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) – The aging process has been directly linked to decreasing amounts of SOD in our system. Increased amounts of SOD cause our body to repair itself quicker. Additionally SOD acts as an anti-inflammatory and cancer fighting enzyme.
P4D1 Enzyme – P4D1 has been found to do two things in the human body. It is the first known substance to actually stimulate repair of DNA molecules. It is possible that disease cells can be repaired with P4D1 so that when they reproduce they will actually produce good cells. P4D1 has also been shown in laboratory tests to eat the protein sheath off a cancer cell so that the white blood cells can attack and destroy them.
Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) – GAGs form an important component in the synovial fluid lubricant in body joints, and chondroitins which can be found in connective tissues, cartilage and tendons.
