Wheatgrass contains at least 13 vitamins (several are antioxidants), including B12, many minerals and trace elements, including selenium, and all 20 amino acids. That said If we look at oxygen as a bullet to kill cancer cells, then we should look at wheatgrass as a shotgun blast at treating cancer. The number of ways it deals with cancer is incredible. First of all it contains chlorophyll, which has almost the same molecular structure as hemoglobin. Chlorophyll ups hemoglobin production, and in effect more oxygen gets to the cancer. Selenium and laetrile are also in wheatgrass and both are anticancer. Chlorophyll and selenium also help build the immunity system. Furthermore, wheatgrass is one of the most alkaline foods known to mankind. The health claims made by wheatgrass juice companies range from preventing tooth decay and gray hair, detoxing the liver and blood, two ounces of wheatgrass juice contains 70 percent of the recommended daily intake (RDI) of vitamin A and 20 percent the RDI of iron. It is also relatively high in calcium. Many food scientists believe that a shot of wheatgrass is no better than a serving of veggies. Slamming a shot of wheatgrass is certainly a quicker way to get a serving of veggies.
Simply said wheat grass:
Will give you extra energy in dealing with every stress, sadness and pollution that creates acid in our bodies. This angry acid attacks the defenseless red blood cells, causing them to weaken, stick together and die. The properties of what grass help combat and reduce the amounts of angry acid.
The enzymes in your body work hard to use the good bits in food in order to repair and rebuild your body. As you get older, the enzymes reduce in numbers and less repair work can be carried out, so you age and weaken.
