Wheat grass is potent raw, living food. The grass itself comes from the common wheat plant (species triticum aestivum) when it is in a young, vibrant, vegetable state.
The terms “wheatgrass” and “wheat grass” are interchangable. Technically, the correct term is “wheat grass” which refers to field grown grasses. 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 product you desire is field grown “wheat grass”.
Why You Want Wheatgrass
Completeness. Grasses are a singularly life sustaining food. There is no other food in any grocery store or health food store that can make the same claim.
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.
Grasses are in fact the foundation 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 and obtaining this completeness. Never had wheatgrass before? Don’t worry, you will find that your body knows exactly what to do with excellent nutrition.
How You Eat Wheatgrass
You juice it and drink it!
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 we capture.
When wheatgrass is squeezed, a dark green liquid is expressed which is called wheatgrass juice. When wheatgrass is juiced, it is volatile and will oxidize quickly so you need to either drink it quickly or protect the juice from oxidation. DynamicGreens packages and flash freezes the juice in seconds which maintains the life force without compromise.
