Wheat Grass is a cereal grass that is cultivated at the early stages of development when it is most nutritious and the protein, vitamin and chlorophyll content is at is at its highest. However, as the plant gets older it becomes more fibrous providing much less nutritional value, this is why Wheat Grass is always harvested at the early stages of growth.
Antioxidants: Excessive exposure to free radicals leads to an inflammatory response in the body that can damage cells and create a greater risk of disease. Dietary intake of antioxidants is critical for neutralising the damage caused by free radicals. The combination of various antioxidants can provide a protective effect and help to reduce the risk of disease. Some of the main risk factors for disease can be improved by consuming a diet rich in antioxidants.
Chlorophyll is used in plants and algae to trap the light needed for photosynthesis; it is also the pigment responsible for their distinct green colour. In the body, chlorophyll can help to reduce the effects of oxidative damage which in turn offers protection from the damaging effects of free radicals.
Super oxide dismutase (SOD) is an active enzyme that helps to protect cells in the body from damage by free radicals. SOD works by scavenging excess superoxide which is a damaging free radical produced in the body during mitochondrial respiration. Wheat grass is naturally high in SOD making it an ideal product to boost immunity and improve the body’s defences.
Fibre: Wheat Grass is naturally high in fibre. Dietary fibre helps to improve the transit of waste material and may play an important role in lowering cholesterol and improving gut flora.
