You’ve seen wheatgrass shots at health food stores and smoothie places, right? These days, it seems every smoothie shop – and even fancy coffee shops – sell shots of wheatgrass as a “healthy complement” to your order.



Wheatgrass, the young grass shoots of the Triticum Aestivum plant, commonly known as the wheat plant, is that bright green juice that became a trendy health supplement a few years ago.

Wheatgrass is often sold as a fresh juice, but you can get it as a frozen juice, or in tablet form, and as a powder, too. Of course, there are different compositions that vary according to how they were made and what kind of conditions they were grown in.

Now, people have touted this green drink as a miracle cure for everything from cancer to weight loss… mostly due to its super food nutrients, such as chlorophyll, fiber and antioxidants.

But honestly, there's a few issues you need to understand. 

You see, wheatgrass is totally useless because…


Our bodies weren’t built to digest wheatgrass or any other kind of grasses…if we were, we’d have 4 stomachs, like a cow!

Wheatgrass fans also insist it’s chock full of vital nutrients… amino acids, iron, fatty acids, minerals, and vitamins…And yes, it's packed full of phyto-nutrients. And it taste horrible. It also contains plant toxins that can make you sick and upset your gut… especially if you drink wheatgrass on a regular basis.

The truth is …


But, let’s dig a little deeper to discover more about chlorophyll's composition.

Chlorophyll is considered by many to be the “blood” of plants because chlorophyll molecules are structurally similar to hemoglobin. The main difference is that the central molecule in humans is iron and the central molecule in plants is magnesium. Chlorophyll is the substance that basically turns the energy from the sun’s rays into chemical energy through a process called photosynthesis.

And photosynthesis is a big deal. In fact, if this process didn’t exist, neither would human life – or almost any form of animal life, for that matter. That’s because a plant is really the only organism that can make carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water.

Wheatgrass have natural compounds that help keep your blood strong and healthy. It contains naturally occurring, genistein and coumestrol: plant phytoestrogens that have estrogen-like effects in humans. These phyto-estrogens are beneficial because they tone down or mute hypermethylation effects of excess estrogen while also providing a source of natural estrogen to women during and    after menopause, thereby educing estrogen-deficiency symptoms. There also is increasing evidence to indicate the possibility that genisteins and coumesterol may inhibit the growth of benign prostate hypertrophy and prostate cancer tissue.

The biggest misunderstanding about wheatgrass is that humans can't properly digest the stuff and therefore, can't absorb all of their beneficial nutrients. We don't have the right stomach enzymes.  Try as you might to stomach that grassy drink, we are not a grass-eating species. This is why I recommend to my clients to try Green Light, Vita LF capsules or Vita LF powder. What makes these "green" supplements superior is their rich nutrient bio-availability, pleasant taste and their unique target formulation. What all that means is that you can absorb all of their beneficial nutrients. These supplements are not just another chlorophyll or green super food supplement.  They are hand crafted, spagyric botanicals which takes 60 to 90 days to process though a natural alchemical "fermentation" technique which breaks the chlorella's cell walls process creating one of the most highly concentrated formulas available today.
