50 Reasons to Drink Wheatgrass Everyday - We Love Lists

Wheatgrass Juice

The Chalkboard Magazine asked for the assistance of the Hippocrates Health Institute to come up with a list of 50 reasons to drink Wheatgrass everyday. We love wheatgrass and of course we were super excited to read the 50 reasons.

Here are the first 3 reasons. You can read the rest of the 50 reasons on ChalkboardMag

1. Wheatgrass Juice is one of the best sources of living chlorophyll available today. However, to get the full benefit, the chlorophyll must come fresh from a living plant.

2. Wheatgrass juice contains up to 70% chlorophyll, which is an important blood builder. The chlorophyll molecules closely resemble that of the hemin molecule, the pigment which combines with protein to form hemoglobin. The major difference is the chlorophyll molecule contains magnesium as it’s central atom, and the hemin molecule contains iron. The molecular structure of these two substances is almost identical in all other respects.

3. Chlorophyll is the molecule that absorbs sunlight and uses its energy to synthesize carbohydrates from CO2 and water. This process is known as photosynthesis, a complex biochemical pathway in which solar energy is used to convert water and carbon dioxide to glucose and other carbohydrates, and is the basis for sustaining the life processes of all plants. Since animals and most humans obtain their food supply by eating plants, photosynthesis can be said to be the source of our life also.

A glass of wheatgrass juice a day…

Visiting the Hippocrates Health Institute in Florida last year, Suzanne Poot experienced first-hand how one can benefit from a natural way of eating. "I have learned that we underestimate the power of nutrition. Personally, I felt tired for years and suffered from various ailments, which my doctor could not alleviate,” she says. “Interestingly, I was never asked about my diet. After visiting Florida I felt so much better.”
