Howdy! Fantastic website! I have gotten rid of my arthritis by cutting off animal foods of my diet. I’m a believer! Love your magazine!

This. Sounds. SO. GOOD! Question: is there a source for bottled wheatgrass that you would recommend, or is its goodness really only viable when juiced fresh and used immediately? Thanks!

Hi Laura! Sure, there is a wheatgrass brand that we like called Evergreen. It comes in frozen ice-like cubes of organic, non-gmo wheatgrass, and it’s available at health foods stores such as whole foods. :)

I’m interested in the value of the different ingredients-wheat grass, hemp, beet, ginger-how they make this cancer fighter. Thank you. Margaret

Hi Margaret, all plants contain a great amount of protective compounds that can help prevent and even reverse chronic disease. There compounds are called phytonutrients. Most phytonutrients are located in the skins, seeds, stems and rinds of the food. Some of the common types of phytonutrients include:
– Flavonoids (Polyphenols) including Isoflavones (Phytoestrogens)
– Inositol Phosphates (Phytates)
– Lignans (Phytoestrogens)
– Isothiocyanates and Indoles
– Phenols and Cyclic Compounds
– Sulfides and Thiols
How do phytonutrients protect against disease?
– Serve as antioxidants
– Enhance immune response
– Enhance cell-to-cell communication
– Alter estrogen metabolism
– Convert to Vitamin A (Beta-carotene is metabolized to Vitamin A)
– Cause cancer cells to die (Apoptosis)
– Repair DNA damage caused by smoking and other toxic exposures
– Detoxify carcinogens through the activation of the cytocrome p450 and Phase II enzyme systems
The Phase II enzyme enables the detoxifying process. Every cell in our body has been granted with a self-healing device called Phase II enzyme. This process enables cells to detoxify themselves from chemical waste and toxins; however, this process is possible when it is stimulated by phytonutrients. Phytonutrients act as keys that fit into cell receptors and activate the process. One of the most powerful phytonutrients is glutathione, which is found in asparagus, for instance. Following a low-fat, whole food, plant-based diet will provide all these many benefits.
