Q.1) Where did Wheatgrass come from ?
Ans.: In different forms, wheat has been used for thousands of years for it’s nutrients and healing properties. In 1958, Dr Ann Wigmore did extensive research in to Wheatgrass, and since then, many claims have been made about it curing people of cancer etc.
Q.2) How is Chlorophyll so closely related to human blood?
Ans.: Wheatgrass is rich in chlorophyll, also called as Green Blood. This chlorophyll plays a vital role in photosynthesis, which allows the plan to obtain energy through sunlight. Its structure resembles to the structure of heme found in the hemoglobin. The only difference is with the magnesium and the iron molecule.
Q. 3) What is the importance
of Chlorophyll’s resemblance to human blood?
Ans. : Chlorophyll and Hemoglobin are so much alike in atomic structure. It allows it to be absorbed quickly and begin to rebuild the blood stream.
Q.4) In what other ways is chlorophyll beneficial to us ?
Ans. : Scientists have found chlorophyll to be effective in detoxification, deodorising and in healing of wounds. In 1980, Dr Lai at the University of Texas Medical Centre, found extracts of Wheatgrass and green vegetables inhibited the effects of two carcinogens. He noted that the more chlorophyll in the vegetables the greater the protection. Spector and Calloway in 1959 demonstrated that green vegetables provide protection from radiation damage in test animals. Chlorophyll limits the growth of germs by providing an environment which interferes with their growth. Chlorophyll heals wounds by stimulating the repair of damaged tissues by inhibiting the growth of bacteria. Chlorophyll decreases swelling, has been shown to be effective in healing peptic ulcers and promoting bowel regularity.
Q.5) What are enzymes?
Ans. :Enzymes in laymen terms are like highly skilled workers on an assembly line. Each enzyme performs a specific function within the body while in harmony with other enzymes. They are important and required for everything we do, vision, thought, dreams, reproduction, breathing, digestion are all controlled by enzymes.
Q. 6) Why are enzymes so important for good health?
Ans. : With the important role of enzymes involvement in every body function, it is necessary that we intake adequate enzymes on a daily basis. Unfortunately, medical doctors have found that we don’t get all the enzymes we need from our cooked, oversalted and over processed foods. This intern results in overall poor health situation. Wheatgrass Juice can provide the additional enzyme intake your body requires for overall good health.
Q.8) Is it true that enzymes aid in the prevention and curing of cancer?
Ans. : Yes, it is true that enzymes have been linked to the prevention and curing of cancer. In an article recently published in the Journal Of Longivity Research Vol.2/No.4 1996, enzymes were praised for there ability to combat the cancer disease. Enzyme in short deter the cancer cells ability to hide from the immune system and spread throughout the body.
Q.9) Is there specific nutrients Wheatgrass powder is rich in ?
Ans.:Yes. Wheatgrass is a concentrated source of many nutrients, especially beta-carotene, calcium, iron, vitamin K, protein, vitamin C, vitamin B12, folic acid, vitamin B6 and other trace nutrients.
Q.10) How much Wheatgrass powder should I take a day?
Ans.: We recommend you start with 1 to 2 teaspoons a day, but start with 1 teaspoon and increases gradually upto achieve satisfactory results.
Q.11) Could Wheatgrass powder help me with my dieting?
Ans.: Yes, Blood circulation is increased, so too is the body’s metabolism which results in the body burning off excess fat.
Q.12) I eat lots of fruit and vegetables, should I have Wheatgrass powder too?
Ans.: Unfortunately, commercially produced fruit and vegetables are grown using pesticides, fungicides, insecticides and artificial fertilisers. The soil they are grown in are often mineral deficient.
Q.13) Is Wheatgrass safe to take if I have a wheat allergy?
Ans.: Wheatgrass is harvested at the jointing stage before it turns into a grain. It is extremely rare for people with wheat allergies to react to the cereal in its grass stage.
Q.14) Is Wheatgrass powder safe for Children?
Ans.: Yes, It is safe for children to take wheatgrass powder.
Q.15) Are there any side effects after taking Wheatgrass Powder?
Ans.:There are a few mild wheatgrass powder side effects, the most common of which include: headaches, nausea, diarrhea, and allergic reactions during the first few days of use.
What is Barley Grass?
Barley grass, or Hordeum vulgare, is the leafy growth of the young barley plant. It has been used by humans for thousands of years. The ancient Egyptians, Romans and Vikings all used barleygrass, and Columbus carried it to the Americas in 1493.
Barley grass is a whole food providing many essential nutrients that act synergistically together optimising bodily functions. Chlorophyll and other essential nutrients act synergistically in barley grass to detoxify the body from destructive toxins such as heavy metals and pollutants that we digest every day.
It has amazing ability to concentrate maximum nutrients from soil. Barley grass is naturally rich source of chlorophyll. It contain vitamins and minerals. These include potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, phosphorus, manganese, zinc, beta carotene, B1, B2, B6, C, folic acid, and pantothenic acid. As it also provides a substantial amount of folic acid, pantothenic acid, carotenoids, (including beta-carotene) and organic sodium, it is small wonder it has been labeled a superfood.
Scientific names: Hordeum vulgare, Hordeum distichon
Common names: Barley also is known as barley grass and hordeum.
Barley Grass is a group of multifunctional Nutrient.
Due to its multifunctional nutrients, Barley Grass has strong anti-oxidant properties along with additional benefits.
Chlorophyll: Barley Grass is rich in Chlorophyll, alsocalled as Green Blood. This Chlorophyll plays vital role in Photosynthesis, which allows the plant to obtain energy through sunlight. Its structure resembles to structure of heme found in the hemoglobin. The only difference is with the Magnesium and the iron molecule.
- Antioxidant (free radical scavenger)
- Helps preventing cancer.
- Supports Blood circulation and increases Hemoglobin
- Helps in wound healing.
It is anti-inflammatory, and enhances immune system. They have a beneficial action on numerous physiological processes in the body and have been found to benefit the heart, blood vessels, liver, immune system, connective tissue, adrenal glands, kidneys, musculature and nervous systems.
Green leafy vegetables are rich in carotenoids but their pigments are a green color because of chlorophyll. In addition to being antioxidants, carotenoids also help to rejuvenate the body by promoting the growth of healthy cells

Chlorophyll which makes up over 70% of the solid content of barley grass is the basis of all plant life. Chlorophyll is often referred to as “the blood of plant life.” and It closely resembles the molecules of human red blood cells.
What is the importance of Chlorophyll’s resemblance to human blood?
Chlorophyll and Hemoglobin are so much alike in atom structure it allows it to be absorbed quickly and begin to rebuild the blood stream.
How is chlorophyll in Barley grass good for the blood?
The similarity between haemoglobin and chlorophyll was demonstrated. Haemoglobin is the substance in the blood which is responsible for carrying oxygen. Many of the components, which build and sustain the essential elements in the blood, are also found in foods high in chlorophyll. The Wheatgrass absorbs and synthesises the nutrients vitamin K, vitamin C, folic acid, vitamin B6, iron, calcium and protein, all of which are vital to the generation and utilization of haemoglobin in humans.
