WHEATGRASS juice is nature’s finest medicine

It is a powerful concentrated liquid nutrient.
Two ounces of wheatgrass juice has the nutritional equivalent of 5 POUNDS of the best raw organic vegetables… twice the amount of Vitamin A as carrots and is higher in Vitamin C than oranges! file0002014167620

It contains the full spectrum of B vitamins, as well as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium and potassium in a balanced ratio.
Wheatgrass is also a powerful detoxifier, especially of the liver and blood.

These powerful nutrients can also prevent DNA destruction and help protect us from the ongoing effects of pre-mature aging and cellular breakdown.

The high content of oxygen in chlorophyll helps deliver more oxygen to the blood.

The wheatgrass juice must be consumed fresh – within fifteen minutes of juicing.  Do not dilute it with any other liquid.

For about $1.00/week you can grow your own!

How to Grow Your Own Wheatgrass

  1. Soak your hard winter wheat seed (also called wheat berries) overnight (8 to 12 hours).
  2. Sprout the seed in a jar for the next 16 to 24 hours, rinsing the seed well three times a day.
  3. After a very short “tail” is visible, plant the seed on top of the soil. Basic potting mix or topsoil will work fine. Peat moss is an important ingredient to look for in your soil so if you have to add it, the mix is one part peat moss to three parts soil, filled halfway up a two-inch deep tray.
  4. Water the tray and then cover the seeds to keep them from drying out for the first three days.
  5. During the first three days of growth, water once a day in the morning and really soak the soil (until the tray drips is a good sign you are watering enough). Then lightly mist your seed in the evening (lift cover off to mist seed).
  6. On the fourth day, uncover grass (roots should begin to take over your soil), water heavily once a day and keep the grass in the shade (never direct sunlight).
  7. For mold problems, increase your air circulation with a fan or air conditioning to keep the temperature between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit (21° to 26° Celsius).
  8. Harvest grass when a second blade of grass appears on the grass blades, or when the grass “splits” toward the bottom of the blade. Average growing time is seven to 12 days, depending on the weather, but still always watch for the second blade of grass as you can never judge by how many days it has been growing or how tall the grass is.
  9. Only harvest once.
  10. Cut grass will store in the fridge for about seven to 10 days or longer in Green Bags. Then start the process all over again with new seeds and soil.

    1. I prefer the taste too, but have to drink wheat grass juice at least a couple times a week.
      There is very little nutritional difference between wheat grass and barley grass, although it is important to note that barley grass acts as a free radical scavenger that also reduces inflammation and pain, and wheat grass contains P4D1, a “gluco-protein” that acts like an antioxidant, reducing inflammation. It is also thought to be able to help the body attack cancer cells.
