Organic Wheatgrass Powder
Organic wheatgrass powder is all natural whole leaf organic wheatgrass bound into a perfect powder. Considered one of the most potent leafy green vegetables, wheatgrass powder is packed with beta-carotene, chlorophyll, fiber and vitamin K and is non-GMO.
Wheatgrass is the sprouted shoot of wheat. Our organic wheatgrass powder is made from dehydrated wheatgrass to preserve active enzymes and maintain a naturally-rich nutrient profile.
Organic wheatgrass powder contains an abundance of chlorophyll, which helps detoxify and cleanse the body while eliminating harmful toxins. Chlorophyll is also the reason wheatgrass has an alkalizing effect on the body, balancing pH levels and correcting a build-up of acids, which can inhibit the body’s ability to absorb nutrients. This alkalizing process also helps deliver oxygen to your cells, giving you a boost of energy. Wheatgrass enhances your body’s ability to ward off infections because it contains immune-boosting nutrients like beta-carotene. By weight, wheatgrass is approximately 85% pure plant protein and is made up of more than 20 amino acids. Wheatgrass is also a rich source of dietary fiber, iron, and folic acid, and has the capacity to absorb 92 minerals from the soil.
Preliminary research has been conducted to examine the potential health benefits of wheatgrass and the results have been promising:
1) A 2011 study from Acta Poloniae Pharmaceutica revealed that wheatgrass helped lower total and LDL (“bad”) cholesterol in mice with abnormally high cholesterol levels.
2) Nutrition and Cancer released a 2007 study suggesting that wheatgrass may reduce negative side effects for breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.
Tastes and Uses
Wheatgrass powder has a mild grassy flavor with a hint of sweetness that works well with juice, smoothies or water. Mix a teaspoon of organic wheatgrass powder into your drinks or sprinkle it on foods. The daily recommendation is 1-3 servings. The taste will blend right into a creamy salad dressing like this avocado wheat drizzle. For something a little sweeter try a wheatgrass smoothie, blended with soy milk and frozen fruits.
I LOVE MY WHEATGRASS POWDER AND THE GREAT PEOPLE AT NUTS!LEROY, UNIVERSITY CITY, MO
At first, I used too much of it in our shakes--very grassy in flavor. Like eating the lawn. A little goes a long way. My advice is to start lightly and add as yu go along.Patricia, Beaufort, NC

I have been looking for things to give me more greens in my diet and I ready that 2 oz fresh wheatgrass was equal to 5 lbs of greens. When I saw this I knew it would be added to my green smoothies and give me an extra boost of nutrition.Lorie, Rockford, MI
