It seems like everywhere you turn today you hear the word GREEN... green buildings, green fabrics, green restaurants, green cleaning products, green this, green that. Green choices, green decisions... Good grief!! It's like the world is trying to be earth-friendly in a hurry to make up for the lack of care we've given to the planet over the last 50 or so years. Hopefully, by making earth-healthy green choices in the "11th hour" we can undo some of the damage we've caused in terms of pollution and global warming.

Meanwhile, this same sort of "hurry up and fix it" thinking can apply to health care. Over the years, it's easy to do environmental damage to our bodies, contaminating it with pollutants, poor food choices and lack of exercise. Then in the "11th hour," when we're feeling unhealthy, or perhaps have become ill, we try to make up for it in a hurry, basically becoming green in our self-care. We start watching what we eat; we start taking vitamins, maybe even join a health club. All the while, hoping that all the years of unhealthy choices can be repaired. The bad news is, it just doesn't work that way-with the planet or our health.

But there is some really good news and that good news is green! Its wheatgrass power and you can't get any greener than wheatgrass! The juice from wheatgrass is truly a gift of nature, it's actually the blood of nature, and it's a perfect fit for dynamite health. Since ancient times, the wheat berry has been considered the most valuable of foods. Likewise, the chlorophyll from the growing wheatgrass has proven itself to be the most powerful blood cleanser on earth. The solid content of juice made from wheatgrass is 70% chlorophyll, the sunshine element from the plant that rejuvenates the human body. Chlorophyll is often called "the blood of plant life" because it closely resembles the molecular structure of human red blood cells. Chlorophyll is one of nature's greatest healers for conditions both inside and outside of the body, and it is considered a survival food because it feeds us dynamic nutrients, yet the body gives up very little energy to assimilate it.

Chlorophyll is the basis of all plant life; it is truly liquid sunshine. Chlorophyll absorbs energy from the sun and in some mysterious way it uses it to create sugar, starch and proteins. Science has proven not only that chlorophyll will stop the growth and development of unfriendly bacteria, but it is actually akin to human blood. Studies show that chlorophyll has the same chemical structure as hemoglobin, the red cells in human blood. Both chlorophyll (wheatgrass juice) and hemoglobin consist in part of similar atoms. The only difference between them is that in human blood the metallic atom consists of iron; while in chlorophyll, this atom is magnesium.

When you think about all the many remarkable benefits of wheatgrass, it's crazy not to be taking advantage of it for great heath--for green health.

There are several ways to go about taking wheatgrass. You can buy a wheatgrass juicing machine, and juice your own. Wheatgrass is fun to grow, or you can buy it freshly grown from a health food store. Of course, the taste is usually a bit off-putting, because it tastes pretty much like a freshly mown field of grass, in a glass! Some health food stores sell "shots" of wheatgrass juice. You can get about one ounce of wheatgrass juice for about $3 to $10. You can also buy wheatgrass juice pre-bottled, however, the taste of that mown field is still there. The easiest way to consume wheatgrass juice, and the most economical, is in supplement form. Depending on the supplement, it is the equivalent to consuming a giant green leafy salad! Studies show that 15 pounds of fresh wheatgrass is equivalent in nutritional value to 350 pounds of the choicest vegetables.

You can easily pump up your pH level with wheatgrass. pH stands for "potential of Hydrogen," and is the ratio measurement for acidity and alkalinity. The perfect pH level for humans is 6.8 to 7.2, and by maintaining this level, the trillions of cells in your body are free to absorb and use vitamins and other nutrients, and to excrete the waste. When your diet includes higher amounts of fat, sugar and animal protein, your body becomes more acidic and the cellular waste will ferment, rot, and not exit your body. When this waste doesn't get eliminated, it causes pain in your tissues, muscles, joints and major organs, setting the stage for illness and disease. The best way to reduce this acidity is with alkalizing foods such as wheatgrass. According to Nobel Prize winner Otto Warburg, cancer cells cannot grow in an oxygen-rich environment with a balanced pH. There's no super food on earth that promises so much health for so very little.

There are also some fantastic combination formulas available that bring together the alkalizing benefits of wheatgrass, lemon grass and barley grass into one energizing,
immunity-enhancing green formula. Wheatgrass has been called the nectar of rejuvenation, and it's easy to see why. Wheatgrass is rich in enzymes, vitamins, hormones and nucleic acids. It has widespread effectiveness, but its three most important health roles are: blood purification, liver detoxification and colon cleansing. These three components are the foundation of super great health.

Barley grass and wheatgrass are both abundant sources of superoxide dismutase (SOD). This is a powerful antioxidant and anti-aging enzyme. SOD is a proven anti-inflammatory for arthritis, edema, gout, and bursitis. Lemon Grass is another fantastic cleanser that helps detoxify the liver, pancreas, kidney, bladder and digestive tract. It helps cut down uric acid, cholesterol, excess fats and other acid wastes while stimulating digestion and blood circulation. If you want to cleanse your colon and liver,
nourish your major organs, boost your energy, this combination absolutely cannot be beat.

Taking this superfood combination may help turn around poor health in no time, making up for the many years of polluting the environment of our health. It’s like putting lots of "green" into the bank account of your health.

So invest in your health, it's the best "green" decision you can make!
