Oh I have moved into wheatgrass heaven. I am soooooooooooooooooo excited to share this with you all. I just got my new wheatgrass juicer. I didn't want to spend $200 on a wheatgrass juicer so I spent a lot of time researching all the ones I could find online. The one that came highly recommended to me was the Healthy Juicer.

This little unit is a mere $45 and is worth every penny (and more!). I just set it up, which is super simple to do and cut some wheatgrass for myself. I ended up using a rectangle 8"x4" and this gave me a lovely 2 oz shot of juice.

It took no time at all to send the wheatgrass through the juicer. I did it in about 6 parts. I just cut a small portion of grass each time and my hubby turned the crank and out came this dry twisted grass. There is a little opening under the crank where the juice comes out of. So simple! Even a child could use this machine. It's that simple and easy to turn the crank. No major strength needed at all. (Of course you wouldn't want to give this to a child to operate as there are gears that could harm little fingers!)

The juice tasted exactly like the shot of wheatgrass I buy at my local juice bar made in one of those expensive wheatgrass juicers. I'm so surprised to be honest, I figured it wouldn't taste as good… but it does!

A one ounce shot of wheatgrass is equivalent to 2.5 pounds of greens and the equivalent of 2 cups of coffee! The nutrients in wheatgrass juice are completely assimilated by the human body in only 20 minutes.

Wheatgrass juice benefits blood cells, bones, glands, hair, kidneys, liver, muscles, spleen, teeth, and more! It also protects the lungs from pollution, cigarette smoke, toxins, and heavy metals.

Wheatgrass juice is a safe, effective, and an extremely potent aid to weight loss. It works by suppressing appetite, and by stimulating metabolism and circulation.

Wheatgrass has approx. 60-90 calories ounce. It has no fat or cholesterol. It has nearly 6 grams of (complete) protein per ounce, and includes all eight of the essential amino acids, as well as 13 of the remaining 16. The amino acids it doesn't contain are easily made within the body. It is 70% chlorophyll. Did you know that the red cell count returns to normal within 4 to 5 days of the administration of chlorophyll, even if you are extremely anemic? It also aids with constipation. Seems like the way to go if you are low in iron!

It contains Vitamins A, B1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, and 12; C, E and K. An ounce of wheat grass contains around 90mg of Calcium, 48mcg Iodine, 21mcg Selenium, 5220mcg Iron, 372mcg Zinc. It also has lots of anti-cancer agents. If you want to read more of the benefits do a search in google and you'll be pleasantly surprised not only by the quality of this wonderful juice but by the taste.

When you were a kid did you ever chew on grass? Well that's exactly what this tastes like. If you leave it sit for a minute or two it becomes even sweeter.

  • Dr. Max Bircher, a research scientist, inventor of muesli, and founder of the famed Bircher-Benner Clinic in Zurich, Switzerland, called chlorophyll "concentrated sun power." He said, "Chlorophyll increases the function of the heart, affects the vascular system, the intestines, the uterus, and the lungs… It is therefore a tonic which, considering its stimulating properties, cannot be compared with any other. "
  • According to Dr. Bircher, nature uses chlorophyll (wheatgrass) as a body cleanser, rebuilder, and neutralizer of toxins.
  • Dissolves the scars that are formed in the lungs from breathing acid gasses. The effect of carbon monoxide is minimized since chlorophyll increases hemoglobin production.
