EASY TO READ TEXT ABOUT WHEATGRASS Wheatgrass Juice contains vitamins B, C, E, and carotene (Vitamin A). We need Vitamin A to prevent weak or brittle bones, night blindness, and dry skin. Vitamin A is needed for good eyesight, normal growth and reproduction. Vitamin B is the anti-stress vitamin. The more stress we are under the more of this vitamin is needed. Vitamin B helps the digestive system, the adrenal glands and is essential for normal brain and body formation. Vitamin C is important for the health of the skin, teeth, gums, eyes, muscles and joints. Vitamin E is an antioxidant, prevents muscle degeneration, sterility, slow healing of wounds and infections and helps the heart. The Vitamin E in Wheatgrass Juice is 10 times more easily assimilated by the body than synthetic Vitamin E.Minerals. Mineral salts are basic to all organic life. The electrical currents of life transfer through Organic minerals (minerals from plants). Organic minerals regulate the elimination and blood-building functions of the body. If you take inorganic minerals (those available in pill form) , you need 10-20 times more , risking an overload, upsetting your internal balance.These minerals are not found in any one single source. That is why we go to great extremes and cost to add minerals to our Genesis Wheatgrass Soil. We have selected minerals from Volcanoes from New Mexico, ancient sea beds from Southeast Texas and Florida, kelp from the North Seas and earthworm castings. We would never grow Wheatgrass in only compost. " If its' not in the soil, it's not in the grass."When someone tells me they grow Wheatgrass in organic compost, my first thought is who's compost mine or yours, or John's or Sam's? All these composts would have a different mineral content. Some minerals could have been leached out during the composting process. Some add peat moss which have virtually no nutrients. The U.S. Senate Document # 264 in 1936 showed that 12 growing seasons would deplete most nutrients from the soil. It concerns me when I hear of someone growing Wheatgrass in only composted Wheatgrass mats. Each cycle of growing Wheatgrass, cutting the Wheatgrass, composting the Wheatgrass mats, with no minerals being added back, the Wheatgrass becomes less and less nutritional, indicated by a Bitter tasting Wheatgrass, thin blades, and a pale green color. Wheatgrass grown in a highly mineralized soil 1. is a good source of calcium. Calcium cannot be used properly if other trace minerals are not present. Plants such as Wheatgrass Juice and other live foods, have the trace minerals present to make the calcium absorbed by the body. Even though spinach, beet greens, and chard have more calcium than Wheatgrass, the presence of oxalic acid binds the calcium making it unusable by the body. 2. is a good source of iron. Iron is needed for red blood formation. Inorganic iron can cause constipation, The iron in Wheatgrass Juice has no side effects. Wheatgrass has an abundance of magnesium, potassium and calcium. These minerals maintain the pH of the blood. Alkaline minerals must neutralize the acids from metabolism in order to maintain healthy bones and teeth and build our immunity against colds and other illnesses. Normal blood contains five grams of sodium per pint. Sodium aids digestion, elimination and regulates the fluids in our cells. Americans eat too much sodium in shape of table salt. Wheatgrass Juice has a safe amount of sodium for even people on a low salt diet. 3. contains all known mineral elements including selenium and zinc.If your Wheatgrass is bitter, not sweet, its not grown in "Genesis" Wheatgrass Soil.Amino Acids A deficiency of just one amino acid can result in allergies, low energy, sluggish digestion, poor resistance to infection, and premature aging. Wheatgrass Juice contains 17 amino acids, lysine, isoleucine, tryptophane, phenylalanine, threonine valine, methionine, alanine, arginine, aspartic acid, glutamic acid, glycine, histidine, proline, serine, and tyrosine.MSM MSM is a sulfur bearing molecule found in all living organisms destroyed in processed food. It helps our body use vitamins, help to reduce allergies, helps detoxify the body and increase oxygen, and helps take out inflammation. Our habit of processing everything we eat not only destroys some of the vitamins but totally destroys 100% of the enzymes. Enzymes are also destroyed by drying. Enzymes found in Wheatgrass Juice help detoxify the pollutants inside us and help with digestion. The most important enzymes isolated from Wheatgrass Juice are: 1. cytochrome oxidase, an antioxidant required for proper cell respiration 2. lipase, a fat splitting enzyme 3. protease, a protein digestant 4. amylase, which facilitates starch digestion 5.catalase, which catalyzes the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen in the blood and tissues. 6. transhydrogenase, an enzyme which aids in keeping the muscle tissue of the heart tone 7. superoxide dismutase (SOD) Clinical trials show that SOD can help protect us from cell damage due to superoxides, infections, aging, radiation, and poisoning from bad air, bad food, and drugs. Wheatgrass is a superior source of SOD.Chlorophyll and Oxygen Wheatgrass is 70% chlorophyll (the green part of the plant). Dr. G.H. Earp Thomas, scientific researcher, considers Wheatgrass chlorophyll "the richest nutritional liquid known to man." Chapter 3 of The Wheatgrass Book by Ann Wigmore ,includes evidence of the blood cleansing and building abilities of chlorophyll, its effect on the circulatory system and oxygen supply, and its role in detoxifying and regenerating the liver.HOW EASY IS IT TO GROW? With a small initial capital outlay, and a little on-going effort in tending your crop, you can grow trays of wheatgrass very easily. It is one of those habits that's easy, once you know how, and you've experimented a few times! There are 2 mediums in which to grow wheatgrass - using soil or hydroponically (using water). Traditionally, wheatgrass, like any plant, is best grown in soil. The nutrient levels are slightly reduced by growing in water, but this method is convenient for those people who cannot make compost, etc. in a garden, and those who just want to keep the growing really simple. You can try both methods, and choose which suits your own circumstances best. Growing instructions are included with the kits, which provide the ingredients for a minimum of 4 trays. ARE WE REALLY SO UNHEALTHY?Two of the most salutary trends in modern nutrition are the malnutrition of affluent society and mass dehydration - both lead to poor health. We are increasingly dependent on refined foods, low quality, mass produced meat, fruit and vegetables. We are subject to massive media exposure of the high sugar drinks and fast food outlets. There is an increasing need to add fertilisers to improve yields from impoverished soil, and to use of growth hormones and antibiotics in the production of meat. Other factors - such as the tight margins demanded by supermarket giants - all conspire to reduce the nutritional value of our foods. The poor quality of our tap water does little to encourage us to drink the recommended daily quota. Our reliance on high energy sugar drinks and stimulants, such as tea and coffee, combine to dehydrate our systems still further. The results can include a reduction in the efficiency of our immune systems, a lowering of reserves through the poor nutrient content of our diet and a propensity to infections .. .IT'S NOT ALL DOOM AND GLOOM, HOWEVER . . .An increase in the public's awareness of these issues has led to an enormous increase in the consumption of organic foods, a suspicion of GMO foods, the on-going call for adequate food labelling an increased use of water purification. Alongside the quantum leaps in our understanding of the importance of living foods and the factors that have led to the deterioration in the quality of our food, come the welcome proliferation of the juice bar, the complementary health clinic, and the local wholefood shop. An organic, freshly prepared juice in a gym or juice bar may cost £3 or more, but an increasing number of people are looking for ways to boost their intake of fresh organic nutrients and of pure water AT HOME. What is it about wheatgrass, that leads it to feature on the menus of fashionable juice bars, to help increasing numbers of people in their fight against cancer, to boost the immune system, and to be an important element in most detox programmes?
  • Steve Meyerowitz, known as Sproutman in the US, describes wheatgrass as "a sunshine transfusion"
  • Dr Ann Wigmore healed her gangrenous legs with it in the 1970's and later ran the Boston marathon; and
  • our own Living Foods expert, Elaine Bruce, who was a student of the late Ann Wigmore, describes it as an essential ingredient of the Living Foods Programme.Click Here for a Printer Friendly Fact Sheet on Wheatgrass & The Wheatgrass Starter Kit SO . . . WHY DRINK WHEATGRASS JUICE?Wheatgrass earned its reputation from people with terminal illnesses, who took it at the eleventh hour after conventional medicine left them with no hope. In the 1970s, Dr Ann Wigmore opened the Hippocrates Health Institute, in Boston, nourishing terminally ill patients back to health with fresh squeezed wheatgrass. Dr Charles F Schnabel (1895 - 1974) chemist and agriculturalist, knew from his work with his farm animals and his research in the laboratory, that wheatgrass boosts nutrition, builds good blood and strengthens immunity. More recently, there are many studies demonstrating the efficacy and nutrition of grass foods, using both clinical evidence and testimonials. In the US there are numerous healing centres, where wheatgrass plays a key role in the diet. There are courses run in the UK by proponents of wheatgrass and raw, living foods. Wheatgrass has long been used like a herbal medicine - for its therapeutic and nutritional properties. Although wheat is the most popular, barley, oats and rye are equally potent.So what's it good for?Blood purification, Liver detoxification, Colon cleansing. As a food Wheatgrass is very nourishing and restorative with a complete range of nutrients. Therapeutically, the fresh juice can be drunk or applied rectally using a enema implant. For disease prevention, you can make powdered drinks, take it in tablet or capsule form, or drink the fresh juice as part of a long term health maintenance programme. For those with an intolerance to gluten, do not be put off . . . The grain metamorphoses completely into a vegetable, with none of the allergic proteins common to the glutenous grains.". . . our food is our medicine and our medicine is our food" - Hippocrates, the father of medicine.It has long been established that the best medicine is a whole, natural food. All known nutrients were found in concentrated form in wheatgrass, including what are now known as phytochemicals. Also anti-oxidants, enzymes, 20 amino acids, vitamins including: folic acid, calcium, zinc, selenium, magnesium, phosphorous, manganese, potassium, and cellular RNA and DNA. Similar natural superfoods containing a broad spectrum of concentrated nutrients are bee pollen, spirulina, chlorella and blue green algae. They all provide the raw materials from which the body manufactures what it needs and balances its own chemistry. Grasses, along with alfalfa and these algae, are the richest sources of chlorophyll on the planet. Green plant cells are the only cells capable of absorbing the energy of the sun. The famous research scientist E. Bircher called chlorophyll "concentrated sunpower - it increases the functions of the heart, improves the vascular system, the intestines, the uterus and the lungs. It raises the basic nitrogen exchange and is therefore a tonic which, considering its stimulating properties cannot be compared with any other". The amount of juice you drink is totally up to you.Steve Meyerowitz says "Grass is non-toxic in any dose, but you may react to the results of its detoxifying power. All grass is a powerful purgative for the liver, and too much can release too many poisons too quickly". EXPERIMENT! Start with small quantities. It can be mixed with other juices or taken neat. Notice the effects of a daily 1oz shot! Remember - it's concentrated sunpower! Rocket fuel! Greenpower! Living food! Whatever it becomes for you . . . have fun!

    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 from us.

    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.

    What is Vitamin A?

    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 Essential for good eyesight Enables tissue growth and bone development Necessary for healthy mucous membranes to protect against infection Essential for reproductive system return to top Signs of deficiency Dry, scaly skin Poor vision (especially at night times) Predisposition to infections (particularly lungs, ailmentary canal

    What is Vitamin E?

    Vitamin E (otherwise known as 'tocopherol' meaning 'substance that brings forth childbirth' in Greek ) is a fat-soluble vitamin which was identified when it was discovered that vegetable oils could help prevent birth abnormalities. Vitamin E is commonly used in many foodstuffs to help preserve them from oxidisation. It comprises of two types of compounds: tocopherols (alpha, beta, gamma and delta) and tocotrienols. The most widely available form of vitamin E is alpha-tocopherol. return to top Function Antioxidant which protects fatty acids and vitamin A from being oxidized.

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.

    ARE WE REALLY SO UNHEALTHY?

    In real terms we are living longer than any other time in human history. We eat when ever we like and as much as we want. This is a great achievement for our society. But in order to do this we have over looked the main reasons we eat food. It is for it's nutrisnal values. If it tastes good then so much the better for it.

    Our ancestors lived off the land, if fruit was ripe then they picked and eat it. When it could be stored it was stored fresh and uncooked, so keeping a great many vitamins and minerals. When they got the chance of meat they were glad of it and often it was eaten uncooked. Or only cooked on the out side. When meat was stored it was dried or smoked, this all retained a greater number of vitamins. Our ancestors lived like this for thousands of years. From the day we walked upright and long before that time our bodies have been chancing to suit the environment around it. So over this time our bodies have adapted to digest the food we eat.

    Yet today two of the most salutary trends in modern nutrition are the malnutrition of affluent society and mass dehydration - both lead to poor health. We are increasingly dependent on refined foods, pre cooked and preperpered. We are subject to massive media exposure of the high sugar drinks and fast food outlets. Our reliance on high energy sugar drinks and stimulants, such as tea and coffee, combine to dehydrate our systems still further. The results can include a reduction in the efficiency of our immune systems, a lowering of reserves through the poor nutrient content of our diet and the way our food is now prepered by us and for us. . .
    IT'S NOT ALL DOOM AND GLOOM, HOWEVER . . .

    An increase in the public's awareness of these issues has led to an enormous increase in the consumption of organic foods and a suspicion of GMO foods, I'm sorry to say that having been growing fresh fruit and vegetables for a living all my life and my father and granfather before me. My veiws on organic food and GMO foods may fly in the face of what may peoples apinions are. I do understand the ongoing call for adequate food labelling and increased use of water purification. Alongside the quantum leaps in our understanding of the importance of living foods and the factors that have led to the deterioration in the quality of our food. But I have to ask the questions of why we do many of thses things.

    A big problem with the so called healthy food groups is the reason they are going down these roots. As a farmer and grower I feel I'm as well qualifed as anyone to give my piont of veiw on the health and wealth of this country we live in.

    We dont have to go back far in the history of our country to see how much it as changed. Dispite all you may read and have been told we are far far better off than our granperrents. But this in its self as made new problems. Not just for us but for our country and in the end the world we live in. Has I said earlier our problems started thousands of years ago. From the first day a of our ansester picked up a rock and used it as a tool.

     

     

    come the welcome proliferation of the juice bar, the complementary health clinic, and the local wholefood shop. An organic, freshly prepared juice in a gym or juice bar may cost £3 or more, but an increasing number of people are looking for ways to boost their intake of fresh organic nutrients and of pure water AT HOME. What is it about wheatgrass, that leads it to feature on the menus of fashionable juice bars, to help increasing numbers of people in their fight against cancer, to boost the immune system, and to be an important element in most detox programmes?

    You can use this wheat for , too!
    Recipe Method
    Soak wheatgrass seeds in water for 8 to 12 hours. Get a jam jar or pickling jar, put drained and rinsed wheat in it, cover lid with nylon net or part of an old stocking, secure with a rubber band. Twice a day, rinse (cover with cool water, swirl around, dump out). In 2 to 3 days, a small sprout will appear. Refrigerate at this point. Can eat raw, in salads, on sandwiches, or alone, or cook about 5 minutes, use in bread, or cook and eat plain or with rice. Has a slightly sweet, nutty flavour

    Our wheatgrass seed is some of the best you'll buy in the UK! How can we say that I hear you ask. Well it's easy other companies grow wheatgrass in the UK and like us they like to know what the competition is doing. One way to do this is to get someone to go and buy what they are selling. Then if its better than what you've got find out where they get it from and use it yourself. To this end all the wheatgrass we grow comes from seeds that we grow here on the farm. These are the same seeds that we send out to our customers. So We only sell seeds that we'd use ourselves. Other companies have tried to find out what kind of whaetgrass seed we grow. That's because our seed grows better quicker with more viger. In tests we've done using other breeds of wheatgrass seed ours came out best. Here are just some of things that makes Brow Farms wheatgrass seed a cut above the rest. We grow all our own seed so we know where it all comes from right down to the field it was grown on. The seed was also grow by us so we know its not been treated with any chemicals before we sow it. When the wheatgrass seeds are ready for harvesting we can do this on the hottest days so the seed will store better and this in turn helps with higher germation levels when the customer sows the seeds at home. We have large storage bins that are kept dark and we can blow fresh air under and up though the wheatgrass seeds. This helps keep it fresh and stops it from going damp. We only clean the wheatgrass seed as they are ordered by the customer. So they aren't left in bags in daylight for long pirads of time which can imper the seed germition and also increase the risk of mould of mould when the wheatgrass is grown. (Quick tip for you always store your seeds in a dry, cool, dark place to get the best from them)
