Wheat grass as an antioxidant

Green magic dresses in antioxidants.

Its high chlorophyll content converts wheat powder into a great neutralizer of free radicals.

One of its main components is beta-carotene, a pigment present in vegetables, fruit and grain, with the ability to participate in the destruction of free radicals. [1]

In addition, it contains vitamin B, C, D, E, H (biotin) and vitamin K and a large amount of minerals.

After studies, it is estimated that about 10,000 years ago, began its domestic cultivation in South Asia. Nowadays it could be said that wheat grass is one of the most cultivated plants in the world.

This green magic full of nutrients lived in ancient Mesopotamia, eased the digestion and muscular pains of the inhabitants of Asia. It sailed until it reached the West and here it was the subject of different studies.

During his research, Dr. Schnabel discovered that wheat grass contained a wide variety of minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, amino acids, enzymes and essential fatty acids.

Dr. Bernard Jensen, author of several books on natural medicine, and an eminence in the field of natural medicine, discovered that our body only needs a few minutes to absorb wheat grass and in that small course consumes very little energy.

Scientific studies

The TÜBITAK magazine, Turkish Journal of Medical Sciences published in 2011 an article that showed new findings on leukemic cells. The study shows a positive response of the antioxidant activity of wheat grass, by inhibiting the proliferation of damaged cells and inducing the apoptosis [2].

This finding represents a new form of therapy to treat CML (chronic myeloid leukemia).

A trial conducted on 30 people aged between 18 and 21 evidenced the great reduction of oxidative stress (lipid peroxidation) after the intake of wheat grass as a supplement in the diet [3].

The importance of being ecological.

Ann Wigmore was totally sure that the vast majority of diseases in our society were due to our bad habits and the large amount of chemicals that we are in contact with every day.

Superfoods are known for their exceptional nutritional properties and health benefits.

Specifically wheat grass contains all the essential elements for human beings. The green blood, as many call it, must be clean of pesticide residues and chemical products, only then we can ensure a healthy diet.

This is corroborated by this article [4] that shows the results of the antioxidant activity of wheat grass after being cultivated under different conditions. The greatest antioxidant strength is found in wheat grown naturally, without any type of chemical
