Wheatgrass is one of the richest, most natural sources of chlorophyll. Known as the “blood” of plants. It is said to be useful as an anti-inflammatory, purification, as well as basic renewal. The anti-inflammatory part of chlorophyll, called Superoxide Dismutase, plays a vital role in reducing inflammations throughout the body. The purification attribute stops the growth of bacteria in wounds, eliminates odors of the body, reduces bad breath, and removes chemicals from your body through detoxification. The renewal and rebuilder of blood is due to the similarity of chlorophyll to hemoglobin. They are virtually identical, with the exception of the central atom (Chlorophyll contains magnesium in the central atom, whereas Hemoglobin contains iron.)
Wheatgrass contains approximately 25% of the recommended daily value of protein. (Meat has 17% and eggs have 12%) The protein in grass is in the form of poly peptides (shorter and simpler chains of amino acids) which are deposited more efficiently into the bloodstream and tissue. Protein is essential in the building and repairing of tissues, and is an important building block for your bones, muscles, cartilage, and skin.
Wheatgrass contains enzymes which digest the toxins in your body. The toxins accumulated in your body are from foods not able to rid or digest themselves. Superoxide ismutase (SOD) and P4D1 are part of the digestive enzyme that play vital roles in slowing the cell deterioration process thus slowing the aging process. P4D1 also serves as an anti inflammatory. Using PureGreen Foods organic wheatgrass you will experience a cleansing process, don’t panic, this means it’s working! Beta Carotene
