We all face it as we get older, more lines, grey hairs and a continual pursuit to keep a natural healthy youthful look. However instead of turning to the latest line of anti-aging cosmetic products, there may be a quicker, cheaper , far more effective method of keeping our youthful look.
Ok so how can wheatgrass help with the anti-aging process? Wheatgrass contains a compound known as chlorophyll. Chlorophyll’s molecular makeup is very similar to that of haemoglobin, which is the substance in our blood that processes oxygen and delivers it to our cells. By maintaining healthy and clean blood you can reinforce the anti-aging theory by keeping the body healthy and full of vitality. Another comparison is that chlorophyll is the life blood of wheatgrass, it can be very beneficial when consumed by humans because it is packed with antioxidants and is an anti inflammatory. Many health professionals put wheatgrass at the top of the list of daily tonics because of its high concentration of chlorophyll, which is great at providing the best anti-aging effects. When consuming wheatgrass you will notice an immediate energy boost and many more benefits such as improved digestion, better sleep and noticeable improved circulation.
A key factor of the anti aging process is the alkaline effect. Wheatgrass, along with many other fruit and vegetables, is widely considered to be one of the best alkalizing foods. Dr Otto Heinrich Warburg states “our body functions best when it is at the optimal Ph level”. So by having diets high in sugar, salt and other acidic substances you can increase the aging process”. Unfortunately due to the modern lifestyles we have and the environments we expose ourselves too (overwork, over indulgence, too much ingestion, not enough rest, Lack of exercise, Smoking, Pollution) our bodies are unable to get rid of all the acidic waste products. As a result these waste products become solid wastes known as cholesterol, fatty acids, uric acid and kidney stones etc. The gathering of non disposed acidic wastes within our bodies is a main contributor to the ageing process, therefore it is important to understand that we must eliminate the unnecessary accumulation of acidic waste products. By eradicating these waste products, we can start to reverse the aging process. Wheatgrass itself can largely improve skin and body rejuvenation because it creates the spark which ignites the cellular renewal process. So the active ingredients in wheatgrass juice can be capable of cleansing the blood and neutralizing the toxic substances in our bodies. Japanese scientists working with Dr Yoshihide Hagiware M D , state that enzymes and amino acids in young grass plants can stop the carcinogenic and mutagenic effects of toxic chemicals, such a nitrogen compounds similar to those found in automobile exhausts. One of the most important facts to understand about wheatgrass is its capability of cleansing the blood and neutralizing toxic substances.
