Wheat grass has long been used as herbal medicine due to its therapeutic and nutritional properties.
The benefits of wheat grass are derived from its powerful nutritional content. Our wheat grass is packed with chlorophyll, vitamins and minerals, enzymes, and amino acids. • 70% of wheat grass is comprised of chlorophyll, which is considered “the richest nutritional liquid known to man”. Chlorophyll is unique in that its molecular structure is similar to that of hemoglobin in human blood, and therefore performs the same function in the body. Chlorophyll helps increase blood oxygen levels, which in turn supports a healthy body. Chlorophyll is known to be very good for the vascular system. It has antioxidants that help eliminate harmful toxins from the body and neutralize free radicals. Chlorophyll cleanses, purifies, and heals most areas of the body. • Wheat grass contains a full spectrum of vitamins and over 90 minerals essential for healthy function of the body’s systems.
These vitamins and minerals act together to perform hundreds of roles in the body, such as produce energy, protect cells from damage, and regulate cell and tissue growth. • Wheat grass contains about 30 beneficial enzymes that act as catalysts to speed up the rate at which metabolic processes and reactions occur in the body. These enzymes help cleanse the body of heavy metals, environmental pollutants and other toxins that may be stored in the body’s tissues and organs. • Wheat grass is a complete source of protein, supplying all of the essential amino acids and more. Wheat grass is a highly alkalizing food. The human body is considered healthy at a slightly alkaline pH level of or above. A well-balanced diet should be 20% acidic and 80% alkaline. Unfortunately, our modern day diets consist mainly of foods that result in an over-acidic body.
Even slight fluctuations in pH balance that make the body acidic can hamper ideal body functions and bring about health issues. Wheat grass is naturally alkaline, and neutralizes excess acidity in the body, bringing your body back to a healthy pH level. Antler Farms® organic wheat grass is grown naturally outdoors, without the use of herbicides, pesticides, or artificial fertilizers. We have a proven system for producing the highest quality organic wheat grass. The soil is routinely tested each year before use to ensure it meets certified organic standards. Our wheat grass is grown over 200 days, in natural sunlight, through hot and cold periods. This slow growth process enables our wheat grass to develop deep roots that absorb nutrients from the soil, and convert them into complex carbohydrates, vitamins & minerals, enzymes and proteins. At their peak nutritional content, our wheat grass is harvested and dehydrated at a low temperature that preserves its powerful nutrients and enzymes.
Every batch of wheat grass is tested for ensure there is no E. coli, salmonella, yeast, mold and other harmful bacteria. Additionally, random tests for heavy metals are conducted. Antler Farms wheat grass is 100% pure, raw, vegan, gluten free and GMO free. Many consumers make the mistake of believing that fresh wheat grass juice found in local juice shops are the best form of wheat grass. However, tray grown wheat grass is nutritionally inferior to outdoor grown wheat grass. Here’s why… Tray grown wheat grass juice is made from wheat grass that has not reached its full nutritional potential. Tray grown wheat grass is grown under artificial conditions – usually in a warm greenhouse or indoors under fluorescent lightning, and juiced only 7 to 10 days after sprouting. Therefore tray grown wheat grass does not have time to develop a significant root system. Because tray grown wheat grass is often grown with little or no soil, and develops quickly through artificial means, it does not absorb sufficient nutrients through the roots; it does not have the time to develop into its ideal composition. That’s why the chlorophyll content in Antler Farms organic wheat grass powder is 4 times higher per serving than tray grown wheat grass juice.
Antler Farms organic wheat grass is also superior to other wheat grass powders. Our wheat grass grows in the extraordinarily fertile soils in New Zealand, whereby on a per gram basis, our wheat grass has two times more chlorophyll than other name brand powders.
