Wheatgrass juice is literally condensed sunlight energy.
It is one of the most potent forms of nutrition on the planet.

DynamicGreens Wheatgrass Juice Glass
Wheatgrass juice is potent raw, living food.  The grass itself comes from the common wheat plant (species triticum aestivum) when it is young, vibrant and full of rich green chlorophyll.  When the grass is squeezed, a dark green liquid is expressed and this is called wheatgrass juice.

Wheatgrass is harvested for juicing when the grass reaches its nutritional peak. This is just before the jointing stage, when the plant is between 7 and 11 inches tall.  At this point, it has accumulated energy which will soon power a massive growth spurt.  It is this energy that is captured in the juice.  When wheatgrass is juiced, it is volatile and will oxidize quickly.  It is important to either rapidly consume it or immediately protect the juice from oxidation.  DynamicGreens packages and flash freezes the juice in seconds which maintains the life force without compromise.

Research History

DynamicGreens Wheatgrass Plant
Grasses are the foundational food for most  land based life.  Wheatgrass was identified as the finest grass food of all after a series of intensive agricultural research studies spearheaded by Dr. Charles Schnabel and assisted by Dr. George Kohler, Dr. Richard Graham, Conrad A. Elvehjem and E. B. Hart in the 1930s, 40s and 50s.  Of particular note, they performed direct comparisons of wheatgrass against other well regarded vegetables including spinach, broccoli and alfalfa.  While animals fed these foods exclusively began to waste away, those fed only wheatgrass thrived on it.  This spawned further research which showed that wheatgrass contains a broad spectrum of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, essential fatty acids and enzymes.

Juicing Origins

Juicing wheatgrass was started in the 1950's by Ann Wigmore independent of the agricultural research above.  Her story is fascinating (check out "Wheatgrass Nature's Finest Medicine" by Steve Meyerowitz).  The essence is that she was a Boston resident of Lithuanian descent who suffered from a variety of ailments in her early life.  Drawing on her peasant background and the experiences of her grandmother (a self taught naturalist), she healed herself with wild weeds, herbs and greens.  She consumed many different types of greens and also fed the same to her animals.  Her observations led her to conclude that wheatgrass was the best source of greens.  One day, at a local yard sale, she picked up an old cast iron meat grinder.  With a few modifications, the first wheatgrass juicer was born.  Ann Wigmore later formed the Hippocrates Health Institute in Boston which specialized in nutrient dense raw foods.

We Embrace And Enhance

Dr. Charles Schnabel went further than just identifying wheatgrass as potent, he determined how to grow it and when to harvest it.  He stressed the need for organic farming, soil enrichment and proper timing to produce optimal wheatgrass.  Our farming techniques use all of Dr. Schnabel's strategies while also incorporating new methods enabled by todays better engineered equipment.  Ann Wigmore brought us juicing which breaks down the indigestible cellulose and gives us a powerful way to tap into the nutririon of wheatgrass.  We incorporate Ann Wigmore's juicing approach and are very careful to maintain the integrity of the juice through flash freezing.  The result is that DynamicGreens brings the work of these two innovators together superbly and the juice quality is literally greater than the sum of its parts.

What To Look For In Wheatgrass (Or Is It Wheat Grass?)

The terms "wheatgrass" and "wheat grass" are interchangable.  Technically, the correct term is the two word expression "wheat grass" which describes the young form of the wheat plant.  In popular culture, the single word "wheatgrass" has evolved to describe wheat grown in trays specifically for the purpose of juicing.  So "wheatgrass" is the term you want to use; however, the advantages of growing outdoors are substantial and your "wheatgrass juice" will be far better if it is made from outdoor grown "wheat grass".  Here are the characteristics to pursue in order to achieve maximum benefits:

  1 • Make Sure Your Wheatgrass Is Made From Wheat  
If you want wheatgrass benefits, the product you consume should be made of wheat.  Surprise!  This is often not the case.  Common substitutes include "cereal grass" (usually rye), fillers in powders such as whey, rice and arrowroot and green drinks mostly contain grape juice, pineapple juice or apple juice.

DynamicGreens Wheatgrass Juice is always 100% raw and living wheatgrass juice.
  2 • It Must Be Juice  
Juice is 100% bioavailable.
Testing at the Boston labs of MIT showed powders to have only 2% of the bioavailability of the juice.  This occurs because high cellulose levels in the whole leaf make it indigestible.

We Welcome Your Questions
Our bodies orchestrate endless biochemical reactions that create and maintain life.  Some are called enzymatic processes and they are characterized by changing a molecule from one substance into another.  This is how the body converts the foods we eat into into things like bone, ligaments, finger nails, hair and tissue.  You can read more about this at Wikipedia

Each process requires a precise combination of nutrients to function properly. When a vital component is missing, a process will either be abandoned, require excessive amounts of energy to complete, or simply become dysfunctional.  When all components are present, the processes occur much faster and consume a fraction of the energy of un-catalyzed reactions.
