Wheatgrass - It's What We Do!!

In Northern Ireland in 2010, there wasn’t a lot of knowledge of the product and very little interest in its benefits (we are a little behind the rest of the world!!).  For a while I was known as “the Wheatgrass Woman!!” All that changed when a man living in Donegal published his story on how Wheatgrass had cured him of his cancer.


Suddenly it seemed that everyone in Northern Ireland wanted access to this amazing health shot and we became busier than ever. 

Over the years we have made a few changes to the way we do things but our passion and belief in this amazing product has never changed.  We’ve employed a few more people as the business has grown and we have changed the way we grow our Wheatgrass from traditional farming methods (growing in soil) to the cleaner, safer and more efficient hydroponic method. And we’ve added a new retail brand, Wild Power Wheatgrass which you will see sold in retail outlets in NI, ROI and UK

Back in 2012, I did a presentation (which resulted in me winning the IGD Leading Light Award) and in that presentation, I discussed the number of people diagnosed with cancer at that time and the expectation that by 2020, one in 4 people would receive a cancer diagnosis.  Shockingly in Northern Ireland that statistic is now almost one in two people will get cancer at some point in their lives by 2020. Cancer is the leading cause of death in Northern Ireland, with 4,255 deaths reported in 2015.


As depressing and scary as that statistic is, it doesn’t have to be.  There have been many success stories of people who have used Wheatgrass (either on as a treatment on its own or as a supplement to more traditional treatment) as part of their cancer treatment.  Survival rates are increasing as more and more people are taking responsibility for making lifestyle changes, such as diet changes and adding supplements to their diets.

Just last week, I read an amazing story of a young woman based in Jersey who has just written a book called “Juice Your Cancer”.  https://jerseyeveningpost.com/news/2018/07/10/juice-diet-credited-with-helping-to-win-battle-with-cancer/

Agi Masta – full name Agnieszka Mastalerz – was diagnosed with aggressive ovarian cancer in March 2016 but turned down chemotherapy and a second bout of surgery after she started feeling better following drastic changes to her diet.  A staple of her diet has been wheatgrass shots – a 50 ml drink which she says contains as much nutrition as one kilogram of standard green vegetables.  You can buy her book at http://juiceyourcancer.gr8.com/

As we approach the 8th anniversary of Squeeze Wheatgrass it is time to reflect on our hard work, successes and plans for the future.  We will continue to grow both our Wheatgrass and business and have to thank all our amazing and extremely loyal customers who had faith in our product and the benefit it could bring to their own lives.  We are proud of what we do.  We are proud that at a time when few people understood the benefits, we believed and as a result have grown our business and helped many people.  Other companies have entered the market now with similar products, some companies have added Wheatgrass to their product portfolio which is all good as it increases awareness of the product.

Here at Squeeze Wheatgrass we have remained steadfast in our development and production of Ready to Drink Wheatgrass shots with extended shelf life and we have no plans to change that any time in the future.

We are making some changes to our Squeeze Wheatgrass packaging to align it with the Wild Power Brand so when you order in the future you will be receiving little shot bottles of wonderfulness.

Wheatgrass – it’s what we do!
