More than 10 ten years ago I decided to take a 10 day raw food preparation course. I realized I was never taught how eat to retain great health. I also understood exercise alone could not fulfill all my health needs. Due to extreme sugar consumption & stress, I had grown fibroids. In addition, I started experiencing a tingling sensation through out both of my legs after a day of over indulging. A Wheatgrass shot was how we started every class in the morning followed by drinking Alkaline water. I actually felt the energy traveling through out my body when eating only raw veggies & drinking Wheatgrass. As result, of this conscious food choice change, the tingling went away and my menses improved extremely.
When my father was diagnosed with the "C word" in the lungs. I made the financial investment of purchasing a Wheatgrass juicer. Basically, I wanted to saturate my Father's body with Wheatgrass for a couple of reasons. To change ensure his body was alkaline and studies showed where the "C word" could not grow in Wheatgrass. I'm happy to report Wheatgrass shots everyday stopped the stage 1 dis-ease from spreading. After 5 rounds of radiation, he was free of it completely.
So now, I consume & use Wheatgrass just about everyday in all the following the ways:
Multivitamin via consumption of both juice & fiber
Chorophyll Bath Soak
Healthy Hair & Nail Growth
To Sustain the Alkalinity of My Body
Let me share the benefits of Wheatgrass with you to help you further decide to incorporate it into your healthy living routine. Wheatgrass contains a full spectrum of vitamins and minerals, including the 13 essential ones packaged with dozens of trace elements & enzymes. (1) Wheatgrass is a nutritional complete food that is a superior food source of SOD (superoxide dimutase). SOD is an enzyme that helps break down potentially harmful oxygen molecules in cells. Biochemist of University of London, Duke University & University of Colgne Germany found the following during research of SOD:
Lessens effects of radiation
Acts as an anti-inflammatory compound
Prevents cellular damage following heart attacks or irritants
Large amounts of SOD supports the anti-aging of cells
There is so much more research on Wheatgrass and it's impact on the blood, free radicals and stored fat in the body.

Here's a Wheatgrass Lemonade recipe to consider for the replacement of other processed fruit juices and soda. Enjoy!!!

If you are using a Wheatgrass juicer that allows juicing vegetables and fruits along with leafy greens, then you can keep adding the ingredients one by one into the feeder of the juicer.
Strain the juice to remove pulp and enjoy! Wheatgrass juicer yields better quality and quantity of juice. If you are a regular green juicer, prefer buying this juicer to enjoy more benefits.
If you are using a blender, it is best to roughly chop the Wheatgrass first to allow juicing without clogging or breaking the blade. Add a little water and all the other ingredients and blend. Now strain it for a smooth juice.
