Wheatgrass is the freshly sprouted wheat plant. It is harvested before the gluten forms- as such it is gluten free,
A widely-enjoyed use of wheatgrass is in regular small doses for the purpose of detoxifying. Some people believe that the high chlorophyll content is an effective agent for ridding the body of heavy metals. As chlorophyll is similar in atomic structure to our own red blood cells, it is easily absorbed by humans and helps the body build red blood cells which carry oxygen to every cell, improving regular blood flow throughout the body.
Added to fresh juices and smoothies, wheatgrass powder is great for healthy hair & skin and aids the digestive system.
As with most healthy greens wheatgrass contains a host of important vitamins, such as A, C, K, and B6. It is also particularly rich in vitamin E, and contains iron, zinc, and manganese which help complete the amazing nutritional profile of this highly beneficial plant product.
Wheatgrass delivers a high concentration of these essential nutrients in comparison with whole fresh vegetables.
Start with 1/2 teaspoon and gradually increase to 1 teaspoon (4 grams) per day over a two week period. Add to your favourite juice or smoothie for a powerful health kick.
Our wheat grass is grown on an Australian organic farm using sustainable agricultural practices and is free from pesticides, herbicides and synthetic fertilisers.
Our wheatgrass is steam sterilised and as it is a winter crop, the fresh leaf is harvest between May and September. The leaf is dried immediately and stored in a coarse form until we have to fine mill it – the fine milling is done all year round.
