Questions
& Answers About Wheatgrass

What is wheatgrass?

Wheatgrass has one of
the highest concentrations of nutrients and is the fastest and easiest
grass to grow. The best to way to absorb its goodness is by extracting
the juice.

What is chlorophyll?

Chlorophyll is the pigment
found in the grass, and means ‘leaf green’. This is what gives all
green plants both their characteristic colour and their ability to
create energy from sunlight, without this exposure, plants are unable
to manufacture chlorophyll.

What’s in wheatgrass and how does it work?

Wheatgrass works by filling
nutritional gaps in the diet and cleansing the blood. It is high in
vitamins A, C and E, containing the same amount of vitamin C as an
orange. It is also an excellent source of essential B vitamins, which
are necessary for normal brain and body development.

Wheatgrass juice also
contains many essential minerals : calcium, magnesium, potassium,
iron, sodium, necessary for healthy bones, teeth, hair and skin.

Wheatgrass juice contains
natural enzymes, which help the bodies defence mechanism by strengthening
cells and removing poisons from the blood stream. It helps eliminate
toxins accumulated from eating processed food, breathing polluted
air and drinking impure water.

Wheatgrass also has dilating
effect on the blood vessels allowing blood to flow more easily. This
improved circulation means valuable nutrients can be distributed more
efficiently throughout the body. It also has an effect on red blood
cells, whereby it increases the iron content in the blood.

How to grow it?

Wheatgrass is easy to
grow at home. The wheatgrass seeds are small oval shaped and brown
in colour. They can be purchased from health food shops.

Step 1. Place
topsoil, preferably peat moss with added compost and naturl plant
feeds in plastic trays. Lay the soil in trays a couple of inches deep.

Step 2. Soak one
cup of wheatgrass seeds for 24 hours then rinse. Now sprout seeds
for two days. One cup of the seeds will be sufficient for a 25 x 35cm
tray. Spread the seeds out so that they touch each other. Water so
the soil becomes damp.

Step 3. Cover
the seeds with a second tray – this will protect the germinating seeds
from drying out. Leave for two days or till shoots lift tray 10mm.

Step 4. Remove
the covering tray and place in good daylight but not in direct bright
sun.

Step 5. Harvest
when 20cm tall. This takes 8-14 days. Cut the grass nearest to the
root. The grass will keep unwashed and dry in the fridge for up to
7 days.

The above will grow most
wheatgrass seeds you can buy. If you use our wheatgrass seed we will
send you full details of the best way to grow our seeds when you order

The grass can be prepared
either manually or using a juicer. The best type of juicer to use
is one that uses a squeezing action. Speed is not good for the juice.
Nor is warming the juice by juicing it.

Vitamin A (retinol)
is only found in in certain animal tissues. Retinol can be toxic in
large doses. However, carotenoids (found in fruits and vegetables)
are converted in the body into vitamin A. Unlike retinol, carotenoids
can be consumed without fear of toxicity. The most widespread and
most active form of carotenoid is beta-carotene. return to top Function

that vitamin C plays a significant role in the prevention and treatment

Dyskinesia BACKGROUND: This study was designed to determine if vitamin
E is effective in reducing the severity of abnormal movements in patients
with tardive dyskinesia (TD). METHOD: Thirty-five patients completed
a double-blind placebo-controlled parallel-group study of vitamin
E. Seventeen of the patients were randomly assigned to receive 800
IU b.i.d. of vitamin E and 18 were assigned to placebo for 2 months.
Twenty-nine patients had a diagnosis of schizophrenia and 6 of mood
disorder. Patients were assessed using modified versions of the Abnormal
Involuntary Movement Scale (mAIMS), Simpson-Angus Scale for extrapyramidal
side effects, and Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale. Additionally, a
subgroup of 23 patients were assessed using instrumental measurements
of dyskinesia. RESULTS: There was a significant reduction of dyskinesia
in the vitamin E group, but not the placebo group, on both the mAIMS
and the instrumental assessments. The overall reduction in mAIMS in
the active group was 24%, with 5 (29%) of 17 patients demonstrating
greater than 33% reduction in score. There was a greater reduction
in mean mAIMS score (35%) with vitamin E in the subgroup of patients
with TD for 5 years or less compared with the reduction (11%) in patients
with TD for greater than 5 years. Lohr JB; Caligiuri MP. A double-blind
