You’ve heard about it: Wheatgrass, a powerful superfood that detoxifies your entire system. But did you know it also contains great nutritional value and some incredible medicinal benefits? We at Urban Greenhouse grow, harvest and process fresh Wheatgrass in Panama. Get to know Wheatgrass Wheatgrass is the young grass (typically 7-8 days) of the wheat plant. (A very important note: Wheatgrass does not contain gluten, so it’s safe for people with gluten allergies and celiac disease) It’s a concentrated source of vitamin A, B, B12, C, E, iron, calcium, magnesium and 17 amino acids. Wheatgrass is 70% chlorophyll: chlorophyll purifies and removes harmful toxins from the body, helps fight infections, cleanses the liver, removes heavy metals, improves the functioning of the circulatory and digestive system, regulates blood sugar in the body and improves your immune system by enhancing the bone marrow, which increases the amount of red blood cells (the ones that carry oxygen to the body). It also contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. A personal story: How Wheatgrass changed a life This is a story that we keep very close to our hearts, as it was the first of many times someone came up to tell us how Wheatgrass changed their life: “I want to share with you something. We have just completed the last spirometry for my dad. Remember that his lung disease is chronic and has progressed steadily. I can now tell you that the disease was stopped. We can’t believe it. We are enormously grateful to God. The improvement began when he started having your Wheatgrass five months ago. This were his previous results: FVC 68%. FEV1 79%. FEV1 / FVC 114% (November 25, 2014) and these are his current results: FVC 68%. FEV1 85%. FEV1 / FVC 123%.  The disease went from “moderate obstruction” to “mild obstruction”.
