~ Havested Wheat Grass ~

~ Lexen Healthy Juicer ~ Manual Wheat Grass Juice extractor

Before buying a wheatgrass juicer, it is important to know exactly what features you need and what you will be using the wheatgrass juicer for to make sure you buy the best juicer possible for your needs. There are many benefits of drinking wheatgrass, and having the right juicer will help make making it and drinking it enjoyable.
Wheatgrass juicers are slightly different than regular juicers commonly used for fruits and vegetables. This is because since wheatgrass basically is a long piece of grass, the juicer must work very slowly to extract the juice from the blade of glass. This doesn’t mean it will take forever to make your own wheatgrass juice - it simply means that you can often use a hand cranked wheatgrass juicer or an automatic one simply runs slower that traditional juicers in order to ensure the important nutrients and enzymes found in wheatgrass are not lost.

I cut the wheat grass with a pair of sissors and put it through our juicer. I would recommend a very good juicer for the grass.

Wheatgrass is the best food on the planet....

Naturally rich in proteins and sugar wheatgrass is a complete food for many animals it contains a full spectrum of vitamins and minerals. A shot of wheatgrass is like a single complete supplement. It has all the B vitamins; indeed it is a vegetable source of B12, and also vitamins A, D, E, and K. Wheatgrass is rich in minerals, major and minor. It contains calcium, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, zinc and selenium. These are minerals important for cardiovascular and immune system function. For healing purposes potassium ions are particularly vital to balance the composition of body fluids, and thus its alkalinity.
Wheatgrass is highly active chemically and contains over 80 enzymes. These are used for digestion but also to detoxify harmful substances. The famous nutritional scientist, Dr E Bircher called chlorophyll “concentrated sun power- it increases the function of the heart, improves the vascular system the intestine the uterus and the lungs”.

Chlorophyll has strong antioxidant properties. It can strip out free radicals which are a damaging by-product of metabolism. Free radicals encourage an acidic cell environment, contribute to the ageing process and have been implicated in the development of some cancers.

The chlorophyll molecule is structurally very similar to the iron carrying component of haemoglobin. Studies in the USA have shown anaemic animals restored by ingesting chlorophyll rich food.
