You can always need a health boost. Don’t you? Here is another super powder that has been discovered in the 1930s. The story is so cute that I want to share it with you.
Wheatgrass is one of 4700 other grass varieties in the world and it is the most beneficial of all of them. The consumption of wheatgrass began in the 1930s as a result of an experiment by Charles F.Schnabel. He gave his wheatgrass to his sick chickens. The chickens became healthy but even more interesting was that they began to produce more eggs than the hens that were healthy from the beginning. Schnabel was so pleased with the results that he began to dry wheatgrass to give it his family and friends as a supplement to their diet. Then it was spread and the industry began the study of wheatgrass and its benefits. Here are some more facts:
WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME:
- Protein (almost 1 gram per teaspoon)
- all 8 essential amino acids and 13 of the non-essential
- many minerals, especially calcium, iodine, selenium, iron and zinc
- Vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B12, C, E and K
- several hundred enzymes which are rarely found in other foods
- a lot of chlorophyll
