Wheat grass is food that comes from the common wheat plant when it is in a young, vegetable state. In popular culture, the single word “wheatgrass” has evolved to describe wheat grass grown specifically for juicing.
Why You Want It
Grasses are a singularly life sustaining food. There is no other food in any grocery or health food store that can make the same claim.
Grasses are not only singularly life sustaining, they are the foundational food for land based life. Nature proves this point, as the vast majority of large animals on the planet graze on nothing but the grasses. When we ingest compatible grass nutrition; specifically, grass juice, we are seeking this completeness. Your body knows exactly what to do with excellent nutrition.
How You Eat It
You juice the wheatgrass and drink it!
It is important to note that the juice format is critical. When you juice, you express fluids which contain highly available nutrition. The waste product is indigestible fibre which is discarded. Wheatgrass powder or tablets are made only from the indigestible fibre and the process of drying and processing cooks and oxidizes the nutrition leaving very little left for you.
Wheatgrass juice is literally condensed sunlight energy. It is one of the most potent healing agents on the planet.
Why Nutrition Matters
Wheatgrass is high quality food that is desired because it contains a small amount of a broad range of nutrients.
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 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.
