Navitas Naturals Kosher Wheat Grass Powder Organic Description:
Navitas Naturals Wheatgrass Powder is made from the freshest, sweetest wheatgrass juice that is freeze-dried to create a concentrated powder. Wheatgrass is low in calories, yet it contains over 70 minerals and vitamins, hundreds of live enzymes, amino acids, antioxidants, and is more than 85% protein by weight.
One of the lowest calorie and most nutrient-rich foods in the world, wheatgrass has long been revered for its ability to cleanse the body and stimulate a natural and healthy energy. Wheatgrass was enjoyed for health purposes in early Mesoamerican and Egyptian civilizations over 6,000 years ago. The king of the Babylonian Empire, known for his strength and stamina, had a strict diet including wheatgrass.
Navitas Naturals Wheatgrass Powder is greenhouse-grown in New Hampshire using state-of-the-art technology. The fresh grass is juiced, then immediately freeze-dried in an oxygen-free vacuum at temperatures of minus 85°F. This process specifically enables more enzymes to be active than with other drying methods. One hundred pounds of fresh wheatgrass juice condenses to four pounds of powdered grass solids. This concentrate holds the live enzymes and nutrients in suspension until they are reactivated with water.
The dense nutritional components in wheatgrass provide a full roster of vitamins, minerals and amino acids along with free-radical fighting power from antioxidants. Due to the incredible abundance of nutrients in wheatgrass, it has become a treasured daily ritual for millions of people. Just one wheatgrass ’shot’ can provide an instant, noticeable energy lift, and this rejuvenating tonic is also a key component in cleansing programs.
With a notably sweet and smooth taste, this gorgeous green Wheatgrass Powder is convenient to use. There is no messy juicing required. A daily wheatgrass shot is as easy as mixing a small soluble serving of powder into an ounce or two of liquid, or diluting the powder into a larger beverage of choice. Since a little of this concentrated powder goes a long way in terms of nutrition, wheatgrass powder may also be seamlessly mixed into salad dressings, smoothies, and even sauces after they have been cooked.
