Our original passion for wheatgrass juice and the benefits of juicing wheatgrass comes from studying the life of Ann Wigmore and visiting her institute back in the early 90's. To find out more about the benefits, we suggest reading her book "The Wheatgrass Book". She goes into detail about the benefits of wheatgrass, juicing, and the living food diet. She also formed an institution called The Ann Wigmore institute, which is still in operation today.
The Ann Wigmore institute writes about the benefits of wheatgrass:
"Wheatgrass juice is an effective healer because it contains chlorophyll, all the minerals known to man, and vitamins A, B-complex, C, E, and K. Wheatgrass is extremely rich in protein and contains 17 amino acids, the building blocks of protein."
As a child, Dr. Wigmore learned about natural healing from her grandmother, who used plants, grasses, and herbs to heal soldiers injured in World War I. When, at age 50, she learned she had colon cancer, Wigmore turned to raw greens, blended seeds, and grains. Within a year, she was cancer-free. She began researching the healing properties of grasses, and soon settled on wheatgrass as her main focus. The Living Foods Lifestyle® uses wheatgrass as a nutritious elixir, as well as for colon cleansing.
To find more of the benefits of wheatgrass please look at the 40 points of wheatgrass and our benefit of wheat grass newsletter archive.
Another benefit of wheatgrass is you can grow wheatgrass in less than 10 days right in your own home. We have available an Organic Wheatgrass Growing Kit for $29.95 that juices around 60-70 ounces of wheatgrass juice and comes with a comprehensive book on the benefit of wheatgrass called "Wheatgrass Nature's Finest Medicine." We have found that wheatgrass benefits a juicing diet and living food diet by adding a boost of green living nutrition every day.
