Why Not Substitute Your Shot of Rum For A Shot Of Wheatgrass. This is the recent rave that has been making its rounds worldwide. 30mls of freshly squeezed wheatgrass juice (a wheatgrass shot!) is equivalent in nutritional value to 1kg of leafy green vegetables Wheatgrass contains over 90 minerals, including high concentrations of the most alkaline minerals: potassium, calcium, magnesium and sodium It contains the essential enzymes: Protease (assists in protein digestion), Cytochrome Oxidase (a powerful anti oxidant), Amylase (facilitates digestion), Lipase (a fat splitting enzyme), Transhydrogenase (strengthens the heart muscle) & Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) (found in all body cells and is known for its ability to lessen the effect of radiation and slow cellular aging) Just one teaspoon of Wheat Grass powder, weighing a mere 3.5 grams, is nutritionally equal to an entire spinach salad weighing a full 50 grams ? it packs a punch! Wheatgrass has more vitamin C than oranges and twice the vitamin A as carrots! Wheat grass juice helps your body to build red blood cells which carry oxygen to every cell. By increasing the oxygenation the body you can help offset smog and carbon monoxide and increase your endurance during physical exercise It also contains 19 amino acids, the building blocks of protein making this one of the most powerful wheatgrass benefits I have heard that its better than coffee and its also a powerful detoxifier and boosts the immune system and fights of illnesses.
