Wheatgrass is part of the cereal grass family. Wheatgrass is known as a “live food” or “living food”. It is a high-density storehouse packed with chlorophyll, amino acids, enzymes, minerals, and vitamins and is easily assimilated in the body. It is considered a super nutrient, the premier “green super food” of nature.
Easy Pha-max wheatgrass is grown aeroponically, which means it is not grown in soil. Indoor Organic Aeroponic Cultivation (IOAC) brings out the maximum nutrients in each plant, and is pollution free, mold free, and bacteria free through out the entire process. Because of its method of farming, Easy Pha-max wheatgrass contains both the blades and the roots, and it has more nutrients than fresh squeezed wheatgrass! Easy Pha-max is the only company in the world that includes the roots along with the blades. The roots contain 13 of the 17 amino acids.
There is no debate that consuming dark leafy green vegetables is extremely beneficial for our health. Wheatgrass offers one of the most potent sources of dark green leafy vegetables in a convenient way that aligns with today’s busy lifestyles. Given that over 90% of us fall short of getting 5 servings of vegetables every day, wheatgrass offers an easier and effective way to meet this goal. One Easy Pha-max wheatgrass sachet has the equivalent nutrients of 17 lbs. of vegetables.
Dehydrated cereal grass has been a popular food supplement since the 1930’s. Before synthetic vitamin supplements were available, people took cereal grass tablets. Doctors gave cereal grass tablets to patients with nutrient deficiencies or for specific conditions.
Wheatgrass is a concentrated source of many nutrients, especially beta-carotene, calcium, iron, vitamin K, protein, vitamin C, vitamin B12, folic acid, vitamin B6 and other trace nutrients.
Our modern diet consists of an abundance of processed foods, including junk food that typically contains sugars or artificial sweeteners. Consequently, our taste buds are not accustomed to eating cereal grasses. Many people find they don’t like the taste the first few times they try wheatgrass. These same people usually find that after taking it for a week they actually begin to crave the nutritious taste of wheatgrass. If you still don’t care for the taste, we suggest mixing it with your favorite juice or smoothie…making it difficult to taste the wheatgrass at all. After taking it for a few weeks, our customers also report craving sweets less, eating healthier and feeling healthier.
In the early 1920’s, the similarity between hemoglobin and chlorophyll was demonstrated. Hemoglobin is the substance in the blood which is responsible for carrying oxygen. Many of the components, which build and sustain the essential elements in the blood, are also found in foods high in chlorophyll. A relationship exists between the process of respiration in humans and animals, and the process of photosynthesis in plants. The Wheatgrass absorbs and synthesis’s the nutrients vitamin K, vitamin C, folic acid, vitamin B6, iron, calcium and protein, all of which are vital to the generation and utilization of hemoglobin in humans.
In 1980, Dr Lai at the University of Texas Medical Center, found extracts of Wheatgrass and green vegetables inhibited the effects of two carcinogens. He noted that the more chlorophyll in the vegetables the greater the protection. Spector and Calloway in 1959 demonstrated that green vegetables provide protection from radiation damage in test animals. Chlorophyll limits the growth of germs by providing an environment which interferes with their growth.
Unfortunately, commercially produced fruit and vegetables are grown using pesticides, fungicides, insecticides and artificial fertilizers’. The soils they are grown in are often mineral deficient. Easy Pha-max wheatgrass is 100% organic and uses no artificial chemicals, preservatives or other ingredients in the growing of its wheatgrass. All processes from seed to shelf are closely monitored and ISO 9000 certified to ensure the best quality.
We recommend taking wheatgrass first thing in the morning to jump start your day. It can however, be taken any time. Many people take it about an hour before a meal with water or juice. This allows their body to take full advantage of the nutrients it needs without competing with other foods. Furthermore, since the dehydrated grass expands, many find they don’t eat as much at meal time. Some report losing weight, while feeling healthier and having more energy.
