Wheatgrass is fast becoming one of the most widely used supplemental health foods. It contains chlorophyll (nature's most health promoting nutrient), 20 amino acids, several hundred different enzymes not found in other foods, as many as 90 out of 102 possible minerals, vitamins and other important nutrients. It is perfect for dieters, athletes, people on the go, who want to maintain a healthy immune system, or simply anyone who wants to feel GREAT.

Wheatgrass is the young grass stage of grain plants, taken just after sprouting. It has been described as " Quite possibly the closest thing to the fountain of youth man has ever conjured up ".

It contains 70% chlorophyll, chlorophyll being the basis of all plant life. Science has proven that chlorophyll arrests growth and development of unfriendly bacteria.

In 1958 Dr Ann Wigmore was singly most responsible for popularising wheatgrass for its healing properties. She tested various weeds and grasses from all over the world at the Hippocrates Health Institute in Boston, and wheatgrass was her favourite due to its high nutrient content.

This bag should produce around 70 trays worth of Wheatgrass (depending on tray size).

1 tray will provide around 7-10 days worth of Wheatgrass juice.

Maybe you should read the book "bad science".

Better still visit this website: skeptico.blogs.com/ske…tml

several hundred different enzymes not found in other foods



Enzymes are complex protein molecules produced by living organisms exclusively for their own use in promoting chemical reactions. Orally ingested enzymes are digested in the stomach and have no enzymatic activity in the eater.

Well there is no actual scientific evidence backing the whole wheat grass nutritional values they are vastly over hyped. I suggest you eat your vegetables and stop quaffing down the burgers.

or graze the lawn.

"It contains chlorophyll (nature's most health promoting nutrient)"



LOL chlorophyll helps with photosynthesis in PLANTS and makes them green, no nutritional value in that.

If only people looked into a subject rather than making what they think are 'clever' comments. Need a certain type of juicer though, as most juicers won't get anything from wheatgrass.

You didn't even bother to click on the link in the first post did you?

Great - now we need magic juicers to extract the magic from the magic grass!

I've read the link, and I've also read a hell of a lot more positive articles about the benefits of wheatgrass, but that's not really the point one way or another. Someone has posted a 'deal' on a product. What I find pathetic are internet fascists that try and rain on anyones parade ramming their own personal opinions down peoples throats then sitting back congratulating themselves as to their superior knowledge. One article, balanced eh?

What a ridiculous point. It is scientific evidence that if you EAT enzymes they are digested by your body as any food would be. They don't magically absorb in to your bloodstream for an enzyme reunion. There is a reason why the human appendix is now redundant, we don't eat grass anymore! Please type in "Wheatgrass scam" into google, then educate yourself there are many more articles than this one, also articles aren't really required to support basic science.

Please post links to published peer reviewed studies showing empirical data which shows the benefits of wheatgrass. If you can't, (and without looking I know you can't because no such data exists) then all you are relying on is uneducated, unproven opinion. It is you who is spreading unsupported opinions not I. If a router appeared on HUKD which didn't route packets, then I would post a link exposing that, and vote cold. This is the same thing. Please also view these links;

I would imagine you probably also think that consuming "anti-oxidants" is a good idea, and believed the MMR/autism link was genuine.

Eating grass is for sheep. Also for sheep (in a purely figurative sense) is believing unsupported, unproven testimony on the benefits of certain foods.

BAAAAA!

You could post a billion links and you still wouldn't get the point. Do you just sit there looking for opportunities to prove that you're more knowledgeable than everybody else? I recommend going out and meeting people, you never know, you might like it.

I get the point, first you say "You're wrong, your one article isn't balanced", now (when proven wrong with extra articles) you say " Too many articles, You're patronising".

You say "stop giving your opinion" then when we prove it as fact and make fun of your magic juicer you say "why do you have to prove that you're right all the time". If you were watching PMQs, and the leader of the opposition said "well you always have to be right don't you?" what would you think?

But patronising would be a very big word to use for someone who thinks wheatgrass is good . I honestly can't believe how unintelligent you have made yourselves sound with the "Mr Science thing" the only science qualification I have is a B grade GCSE, and yet even I know that enzymes are protein strings, digested in the gut, I'm sorry if this secondary school knowledge seems like black magic to you!

This is a deals site, and my comments were purely to support that this is a cold deal, if you have any useful input we'd all love to hear it!

I lost interest in the skeptico link when it used the word 'crap'. Hardly scientific. Can I ask if any of the people against wheatgrass have actually tried it for themselves, before shelving it as a pointless exercise? Also, on the point of whether the human body can use plant enzymes or whether they're ingested, perhaps our bodies break them down and use their components, as happens when we eat meat proteins? I'd like anyone who believes that this isn't possible to go on any body building site and tell the people there that the meat or proteins they ingest has no impact on their training and muscle growth. Hit them with science, as they are some of the most knowledgeable group when it comes to science and what actually works for them. And yes, some eat Raw Food and even wheatgrass. By the way, a 'magic juicer;' as you call it, just squeezes the juice out of the grass fibre. Freezing the juice further helps break the cell membranes, making the entire nutrients available. many sites and blogs are set up by special interests to put newcomers off trying something alternative. Try it for yourself, rather than take someone's opinion, including mine.
