The Benefits of Wheat Grass as a Food or Supplement
The benefits of wheat grass as a food or supplement that can provide the benefit over all health of the body are without debate when put to the test. The largest deterrent of wheat grass becoming a main stream product and staple food source is that negative affects that it will have on the medical and health industry. Healthy people do not need doctors. People without chronic disease do not need doctors. People that are not fat, do not need diet plans, support groups or medical intervention.
Some of the findings that have been written about and documented include many unexplained natural healing qualities. Science is still trying to determine the nature and individual benefits of phytonutrients that are a part of grasses used in various health cereals. And while there is no medical research yet to prove any benefits of wheat grass (why does that not surprise me) the proven results of its use speak much louder.
It IS known that cereal grasses contain large amounts of chlorophyll (the “blood” of plants), which is amazingly similar to hemoglobin, the molecule that carries oxygen in the blood, so, in some researchers and holistic health professional’s thinking, using wheat grass on a regular basis in larger doses is in someway giving your body a ‘blood’ transfusion of sorts.
NO, I am not saying that you can inject wheat grass into your viens or that you should even try it. That is NOT how the nutrients and benefits are assimilated in the body. It must be digested. I am saying however that chlorophyll is soluble in fat particles. This means that since fat particles are absorbed directly in to the blood via the lymphatic system, that chlorophyll can also be absorbed easily in this way. In other words, the “blood” of plants is easily absorbed into human blood. This means that the nutrients of wheat grass and their benefits are transported efficiently to every cell of the body.
In today’s hectic, fast and processed food, cup of coffee driven, sugar laden diets that come as a result of work schedules and the busy-ness of life, the average individual unintentionally drives their blood pH lower and lower through unhealthy diet. This causes a highly acidic blood which affects our bodies on a cellular level. Acidity feeds cancers, cysts, tumors and other cellular malfunctions or disease. The goal of everyone that wants to live a long and healthy life, and NOT become victim to most of the diseases that plague our society is to lower their pH, thus alkalizing their blood and body chemistry.
Some of the underlying benefits of wheat grass are that it is one of nature’s most powerful sources of green leafy vegetable nutrition. It contains an enormous amount of chlorophyll; and, chlorophyll is essential to a healthy diet that can reduce chronic disease and increase over all health. Here are some of the benefits to wheat grass that are worth considering if you are seeking to increase your health and reduce the affects of body acidity – the main contributor to cancer and vital organ failure.
- Wheat grass provides and excellent source of beta carotene, folic acid and vitamin C.
- Wheat grass is high in chlorophyll and as such high in oxygen which repairs the body on a cellular level.
