Wheat And Barely Grass
Tuesday, 08 March 2011

As a #1 standby I recommend people get themselves a wheatgrass / barely kit not only for optimal healh as a superfood and detox but also for food emergencies or the rising food costs associated with inflation.  The turnaround for a harvest to consume is 8-11 days approximately and only one ounce a day is required.

Wheatgrass protects against mutagenic effects, repairs DNA. A teaspoon of

wheat grass contains approximately 10-15 calories and:

* 8mcg iodine -helps protect against nuclear radiation exposure.

* It has nearly a gram of protein per teaspoon.

* 15mg of Calcium

* 3.5mcg Selenium 

* 870mcg Iron

* 62mcg Zinc

* P4D1  - an enzyme protein that can help repair damaged DNA

* Muco-polysaccharides

* Chlorophyll -cleans blood, removes bacteria from digestive track contains

antibacterial properties, but is also high in oxygen and light energy.

replenishes blood supply almost instantly (great for emergencies)

* Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) - removes mercury/heavy metals

* Pound for pound, wheatgrass is more than twenty times denser in

nutrients than the typical choice of vegetables. One ounce of wheatgrass

juice is comparable to the nutritional amount to 2.5 pounds of fresh

green vegetables.

* Contains many other minerals.

**One ounce contains 103 vitamins, minerals and amino acids

* is very high in vitamins A, B-Complex, C, E and K.

* contains every amino acid, vitamin, and mineral .

  There are many types of wheatgrass juicers available these days, my personal preference is a manual hand crank stainless steal avoid any possible interruptions with power outages. I recently purchased my own kit & supplies and

will be posting my home growing  operation on
