Wheatgrass Information Center

brite-ideas-wheatgrassWheatgrass is fast becoming one of the most widely used supplemental health foods in North America. It contains chlorophyll (nature’s most health promoting nutrient), 20 amino acids, several hundred different enzymes not found in other foods, as many as 90 out of 102 possible minerals, vitamins and other important nutrients.

It is perfect for dieters, athletes, people on the go, who want to maintain a healthy immune system, or simply anyone who wants to look and feel GREAT and HEALTHY.

Wheatgrass juice is possibly the closest thing to the fountain of youth as you may find. Considered a “Living Food”, Wheatgrass is a nutritional powerhouse. Just one, 1oz glass of freshly squeezed wheatgrass juice is equivalent to 2.2 pounds of fresh vegetables.
