Young green wheat has long been known as high quality, effective food. It is an active physical refiner which has a detoxifying impact on the lymphatic system, blood, liver, and gastrointestinal tract. It effectively neutralizes and removes toxins and free radicals from our body.  The unpredictable course of history attributed various beneficial effects to green wheat – from the cancer treatment, chronic fatigue and diabetes to high blood pressure, sinusitis and ulcers. Young green wheat is a plant that produces grain in its mature stage. The young wheat leaves are at the peak of their nutritional value until the plant’s ears appear. This is a decisive moment because after the wheat ears show up, the wheat leaves lose their primal value.

The wheat leaves direct all the strength, energy and nutrition to the formation of the ears, so the leaves no longer own the nutritional and functional value as they did at the beginning. The leaves of young wheat are a rich, natural source of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes and chlorophyll. Due to its alkalinity and high content of these nutrients and chlorophyll, wheat is very helpful, complete, balanced food, easy to absorb.

One teaspoon of wheatgrass powder is equal to 600 g of fresh fruits and vegetables – carrots, celery, parsley, spinach, peppers, oranges and other, similar ones.
