Clocks go back, evenings get darker earlier and there is a definite chill in the air in the mornings and evenings. With the first snow predicted for Scotland this weekend and flood warnings further south with milder temperatures, it is no wonder that our immune systems are a bit out of sorts.
Winter plays havoc with our immune system, as we go into hibernation mode and eat more carbs than usual, the central heating is on full blast drying out our skin and a lack of daylight can lead to SAD syndrome. Our immune system, already working to keep us healthy, has to double its efforts during the Winter months.
It is never more important than now to start looking after yourself and adding supplements to get you through Winter in one piece.
Wheatgrass is like an all-round natural multivitamin and is vegan friendly. Approximately one shot is the nutritional equivalent to 1kg of green vegetables juiced! It contains all eight essential amino acids (the building blocks of protein), 92 of the 108 minerals our bodies need, and vitamins A, B, C, E and K. Wheatgrass is also the highest known source of chlorophyll of any known plant in the world. All this goodness means it can be great for helping with detoxification, building red blood cells, and massively boosting the immune system.
According to Brian Clement, the health pioneer from Hippocrates Institute in Florida, fresh wheatgrass is up to ten times more powerful than wheatgrass powder. Fresh wheatgrass contains all its enzymes, phytonutrients and life-force, compared to the powder, which has been dried and crystallised. These properties give the fresh product substantially more benefits for your health.
Unlike cows, humans can’t eat grass, as it is too fibrous for our stomachs to process. So the ideal way for us to take wheatgrass is to juice it. Here at Squeeze Wheatgrass we cold press our Wheatgrass to extract all the nutrients and then use High Pressure Processing to extend the shelf life of the juice. It really is a convenient way to get all that goodness into your body especially as we deliver straight to you, at home or work.
