Wheatgrass has become a widely used superfood in the western world, containing more vitamin A than carrots and more vitamin C than oranges it has powerful anti-oxidant properties. Both of these vitamins are known to safely interact with free radicals (responsible for oxidative stress and cell damage) and terminate their chain reactions before vital molecules are harmed! Unfortunately in these times of high pollution and potential toxic overload it is important to gently detox the body on a regular basis and wheatgrass is excellent at performing this task!
Our Organic Wheatgrass Powder also contains a wide range of B vitamins along with the minerals calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc in a balanced ratio. Calcium and magnesium work together to promote bone health and muscle function among other things. It’s high in vitamin B6 which is also referred to as the “mood vitamin” due to its assistance in helping the body make the feel good hormones serotonin and norepinephrine which relax and lift your spirits.
Wheatgrass also delivers a complete protein (containing all 9 essential amino acids) making it a fantastic addition to a vegan or vegetarian diet – this protein is in the form of polypeptides, simpler and shorter chains of amino acids which the body finds easier to assimilate into the bloodstream and tissues.
How to use:
Integrating Superfoods into your daily diet is simple and easy. Superfoods are particularly dense in nutrients, and free from any bulking agents or fillers. By adding superfoods to your daily diet you can fortify your food with super nutrition. Try replacing breakfast with a superfood smoothie. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk, alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices.
Then additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties, the powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended or shaken until fully mixed in. Superfoods can be easily added to breakfast cereals such as porridge, muesli or granola. The powders, berries, grains, seeds and nuts can also be added to soups, salads, stews, curries, and used as toppings for any meal.
