Detoxification

Wheat grass contains enzymes which digest the toxins in your body. The toxins accumulated in your body are from foods not able to rid or digest themselves. Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) and P4d1 are part of the digestive enzyme that play vital roles in slowing the cell deterioration process thus slowing the aging process. P4D1 also serves as an anti inflammatory. Using Grass Root Greens wheat greens you will experience a cleansing process. Don't panic, this means it's working!

Protein

With the way animals are raised today, it is important to have a healthy consistent source of protein.  Wheat grass contains 20 percent protein, (Meat has %17 and eggs have %12).  Protein in grass is in the form of poly peptides, shorter and simpler chains of amino acids which are deposited more efficiently into the bloodstream and blood tissues. Protein is essential to build and repair tissues, and is an important
building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.

Chlorophyll

Wheat grass is one of the richest, most natural sources of chlorophyll. The "blood" of plants is said to be useful as an anti-inflammatory, purification, and renewal. The anti inflammatory part of chlorophyll called Superoxide Dismutase plays a vital role in reducing inflammations throughout the body. The
purification attributes stop the growth of bacteria in wounds, eliminates odors of the body, bad breath, and removes chemicals from your body through detoxification. The renewal and re-builder of blood is due to the similarity of chlorophyll to hemoglobin.  They are virtually identical, with the exception of
the central atom. Chlorophyll contains magnesium in the central atom, and hemoglobin contains iron.

Beta Carotene

Beta Carotene consumes most of the carotene found in green plants.  Beta Carotene is an excellent source of Vitamin A, which is useful towards strengthening your immune system which reduces your chance of infection.  Vitamin A is an important aspect of a functionally correct metabolism, it is said to enhance the production of RNA which is essential in renewal, protects your body from viruses, builds and repairs bones, strengthens skin and nails, and strengthens mucous membranes. Too much of Vitamin A from animals (retin) may be toxic, your body stores any amount of vitamin from plants (beta carotene) until it is needed.

Meet the Minerals
Grass greens are a vast storehouse of food, which in one way or another, support most of the land based living creatures on earth.  Grass Root Greens brings you wheat, kamut and spelt greens to feed your trillion cells.  Wheat grass is one of the few land based plants whose DNA can work with all of the minerals (over 90) if they are present in the soil. Unlike a tomato for instance, whose DNA works with 56 elements

Of course, if the needed minerals are not present in the growing medium, then the wheat greens are not much better than anything else, relying on the store of minerals found in the seed. As you can imagine, if the seed was produced from mineral deficient soils, then there is no way for the seed to fully engage all the minerals for its own DNA use.

Beryllium is a relatively rare element in the universe. At this time, it is not known to be necessary or useful for either plant or animal life.
9.80E-07
5 B Boron:
Boron is required for normal bone integrity. Boron appears to affect calcium and magnesium metabolism and membrane function. It is essential for efficient absorption of calcium in the body and was found by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to significantly reduce the loss of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus in post-menopausal women. It may also be helpful for ischemic heart disease and other forms of cardiovascular disease. Boron deficiency signs may be related to the level of vitamin D and possibly other nutrients in the diet.
Deficiency Symptoms: Osteoporosis, Arthritis.
4.40E-01
6 C Carbon:
Carbon forms more compounds than any other element, with almost ten million pure organic compounds described to date. Carbon compounds form the basis of all life on Earth.
2.72E+00
7 N Nitrogen:
Nitrogen occurs in all living organisms, and is a constituent element of amino acids and therefore of proteins, as well as of the nucleic acids: DNA and RNA. Nitrogen is involved in the chemical structure of almost all neurotransmitters. It is also a defining component of alkaloids, which are biological molecules produced by many organisms.
1.18E+00
8 O Oxygen:
All major classes of structural molecules in living organisms, such as proteins, fats and carbohydrates, contain oxygen, as do the major inorganic compounds that comprise animal teeth, bones and shells.
6.56E+00
9 F Fluorine:
The major tissues known to incorporate fluoride are bones and tooth enamel. Fluorine appears to increase deposition of calcium, thereby strengthening teeth and bones. Levels in drinking water artificially fluoridated with sodium fluoride can often reach toxic levels which then has adverse effect on many enzyme systems in the body Like many toxic metals like aluminum, chromium and arsenic, which are poisonous in the inorganic chemical form, it is safe and probably even beneficial when ingested in its natural plant form with other elements. Fluorine plays a role in reducing dental caries and may minimize bone loss by helping the body retain calcium.
1.30E+00
10 Ne Neon:
Neon is found in air in trace amounts. Not enough is known about Neon to speculate on what its role in the body may be.
1.60E-04
11 Na Sodium:
Sodium is necessary for the regulation of water balance within the body, the passage of substances in and out of each cell, and the maintenance of a normal body pH. Sodium also plays a role in the generation of normal electrical nerve signals, muscle contraction, and the regulation of blood pressure. Sodium is an essential mineral that plays a critical role in normal electrolyte metabolism. It works with potassium to equalize the acid-alkaline balance of the blood and water balance in the body as well as facilitating the transportation of nutrients into, and waste products out of cells. Sodium also keeps other minerals in the blood soluble so they will not build up as deposits in the bloodstream. It is necessary for the production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach for the digestion of proteins and minerals and helps in the elimination of carbon dioxide from the body. Excessive fatigue, muscle cramps and weakness, intestinal gas, arthritis, rheumatism, neuralgia, short attention span, and mental confusion can result from sodium deficiency.
1.08E+04
12 Mg Magnesium:
Magnesium is important to maintaining the natural calcium and potassium balance within the body. Numerous biochemical and physiological processes require or are modulated by magnesium, including energy production, protein synthesis, muscle contractions and vascular tone. Extracellular magnesium concentrations are critical to the maintenance of electrical potentials of nerve and muscle membranes and for transmission of impulses across neuromuscular junctions. Magnesium deficiency is common since this mineral is refined out out of many foods during processing. Deficiencies have been associated with coronary heart disease, formation of clots in the heart and brain, calcium deposits in kidneys, blood vessel and heart disorders, digestive disorders, depression and many other symptoms.
1.28E+03
13 Al Aluminum:
Aluminum currently has no known function in living cells.
1.00E-3
14 Si Silicon:
Silicon provides foundational support for the bones, joints, muscles, connective tissue, hair, skin, nails, teeth and gums as well as for heart and brain function. Silicon is also needed for the connective tissues of the body such as the tendons and cartilage, and it has also been found helpful in the prevention of cardiovascular disease. It works with calcium to make bones stronger and is therefore an important factor for osteoporosis sufferers. It is probably best known as the “beauty mineral” for helping maintain strong healthy nails, hair and skin. Silicon deficiency first shows as brittle or easily broken nails and dry, splitting hair. . In our youth, our tissues absorb and maintain high levels of silica – enabling our bodies to remain flexible, resilient, and energetic – but as we age, our silica levels steadily decline. It is believed that silica may be a key factor in helping us maintain a healthier, more youthful, and pain-free body, and in reducing the body’s natural recovery time.
2.80E+00
15 P Phosphorus:
Phosphorus is an essential component for healthy bones and needs to be in correct balance with calcium for both of these minerals to be used effectively in the body. Phosphorus also plays a role in almost every chemical reaction in the body. Phosphorus deficiency results in bone loss and is characterized by weakness, anorexia, malaise, and pain. Deficiency in the calcium-phosphorus balance may result in conditions such as osteoporosis, arthritis, pyorrhea, rickets and tooth decay. Phosphorus is essential for a number of biochemical reactions in the body, especially energy production, metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and fats and the building of proteins. It also gives strength to bones and teeth, and plays a role in the regulation of acid-base balance, muscles contraction, kidney function, and proper nerve function.
8.90E-03
16 S Sulfur:
Sulfur (sulphur) plays a role in tissue oxidation as a constituent of thiamine and biotin. It helps in the carrying of oxygen and in the oxidative processes of the body. It helps to maintain the hardness and elasticity of nails, hair and cartilages. Sulphur helps to purify the blood, aids healthy digestion and helps to prevent toxic build-up in the body.
9.04E+02
17 Cl Chlorine:
Chlorine (chloride) is essential in maintaining fluid and electrolyte balance which in turn enables nutrients to pass into cells and waste products to pass out of cells. It is a necessary component of gastric juices required for digestion of protein and minerals. Deficiency of chlorine can cause hair and tooth loss, poor muscular contraction and impaired digestion.
1.94E+04
18 Ar Argon:
Argon currently has no known function in living cells.
6.24E-01
19 K Potassium:
Potassium is an important electrolyte in the body which is intimately associated with sodium metabolism. In the correct ratio, sodium and potassium help regulate water balance within the body; are essential for the transport of nutrients into each cell and waste products out of each cell and help normalise the heartbeat. Deficiency of potassium may lead to nervous disorders, insomnia, constipation, slow irregular heartbeat and muscle damage. In severe potassium deficiency, muscle weakness and paralysis may develop, leading to difficulties in breathing and changes in the heart.
3.99E+02
20 Ca Calcium
Calcium is essential for normal bone and tooth formation, overall growth, blood clotting, regulation of the heart rate, and proper nerve transmission. Calcium is an essential chemical element largely concerned with the structure and rigidity of bones and teeth; a small portion is involved in blood clotting, transmission of impulses from nerve to muscles, and regulation of the parathyroid gland. The 1% of the body’s calcium circulating in body fluids maintains the correct acid-alkaline balance and regulates the heartbeat amongst other vital functions. Lack of calcium in the diet leads to a form of “leaching out” of bone mineral content (osteoporosis) and when vitamin D is also deficient, the condition known as rickets occurs.

A deficiency may be linked to reproductive problems and kidney disease; supplementation with vanadium may assist with diabetes. **
1.20E-03
24 Cr Chromium:
Chromium is required for normal glucose absorption. It appears to increase the effectiveness of insulin and its ability to regulate blood sugar levels. It may also be involved in protein synthesis. It is best absorbed when taken in compounds (complexes). In the majority of all chromium supplementation studies in the United States, at least half the subjects with impaired glucose tolerance improved with the addition of chromium, suggesting that the lower ranges of chromium intake from typical U.S. diets are not optimal with regard to chromium nutrition.
3.85E-07
25 Mn Manganese:
Manganese is required for normal utilization of several other vitamins, and it plays a role in a variety of other biochemical processes in the body. Manganese assists with proper fat metabolism, skeletal and connective tissue growth and repair, the production of energy, proper brain function, the regulation of blood sugar, cholesterol and DNA functions.
2.75E-04
26 Fe Iron:
Iron is critical in making new red blood cells, immune defense cells, white blood cells, and normal brain function. Iron is a constituent of haemoglobin, the component of blood which carries oxygen to every cell in the body; myoglobin, which supplies oxygen to muscle cells; and a number of enzymes. There are reports of reduced physical performance with iron deficiency even before anaemia is present. Iron deficiency also has been associated with decreased immune function.
4.50E-05
27 Co Cobalt:
Cobalt is an integral part of vitamin B-12. Because all vitamin B-12 is derived from bacterial synthesis, organic cobalt is considered essential.
