The Wheatgrass Experiment

If you are a Wheatgrass Virgin and have always wanted to try wheatgrass juice but couldn’t work out what the fuss is all about…. now’s your chance!

The trick to drinking wheatgrass juice is not to have it on a once-off basis.  To really reap the health and energy rewards you need to commit to drinking wheatgrass regularly over the long term.
But who needs that kind of commitment without a guarantee that it’ll do you any good right? Right.
So how about just 5 days? Are you up for trying it for 5 days?
Yep. Great!

Order a wheatgrass shot a day for 5 consecutive days during February 2016, and notice improvements in your:
– energy levels
– or quality of sleep
– or general health,
– or all of the above!

If I’m wrong, and you don’t feel a smidgen better in any of those respects …. then I’ll refund you 50% of cost of the wheatgrass shots.

WHY IS IT AN EXPERIMENT?
Wheatgrass has been the single most beneficial health “supplement” that I have ever taken.  It has boosted my energy levels (I average 6.5 hours of sleep a night, have sustained energy during the day and rarely need a power nap), I sleep right through those 6,5 hours without disturbance (this coming from a self-confessed, sleep deprived, worry wart!) , and, most recently, I recovered extremely quickly from a nasty flu that had the rest of my family man-down for days.
But enough about me. What about you?
Well, I’ve seen regular wheatgrass juices make powerful changes in the health and energy of the clients who have started incorporating it as a part of their daily routine, and I am confident that it’ll do the same for you.
But I’m not 100% certain.  So this is an experiment.WHY 5 DAYS?
Why not 30 days? Or 3 days?
There’s no agreed “minimum optimum” effect period when it comes to wheatgrass.  In my experience, clients notice improvements in 1 – 3 days.  But we are a funny bunch, and some bodies take longer to respond than others. So just to be on the safe side, let’s give it 5 days to work its magic.  I’ve no doubt that you’ll look back at the week and think, “Wow, that was a pretty great week! I felt good, didn’t get sick and had more energy than usual.”But…if you haven’t noticed distinctive improvements, then I’d wager that for the following five days, after you have stopped drinking wheatgrass, you’ll start to feel sluggish, sniffly, and maybe a little blue. When you stop taking wheatgrass you’ll notice that you don’t feel as good anymore.  It’s a classic case of not noticing when everything’s running smoothly, but not being able to ignore it when things are going badly.

 

Start on a Monday.
Give me feedback the following Monday.

If you haven’t noticed any improvements… I’ll gladly refund you 50% of the cost of the wheatgrass shots.

WHAT IS WHEATGRASS?
Wheatgrass is the quite simply one of the best forms of nutrition for us humanoids!

Wheatgrass contains all minerals known to man, and vitamins A, B-complex, C, E, l and K. It is extremely rich in protein, and contains 17 amino acids, the building blocks of protein.”

But it ain’t accessible if we chew on it (that’s why the good Lord invented cows!). Fortunately we can juice it to extract all that liquid health in a shot that packs a powerful health punch!  (See my Top 5 Health Benefits listed further down)

We eat animals and they eat wheatgrass. Why not cut out the middle-man and go straight to source? Get it fresh in juice form so that your body can benefit from all of the nutrients and absorb them immediately.

WHAT DOES IT TASTE LIKE?
Sweet. Grassy. 
It tastes like it smells. You know when you’ve just mowed the lawn? It tastes like that. Some like it. Some hate it.
It’s taken a while for me to drink my shot without a shiver, but now I enjoy them 🙂

NB – This isn’t gourmet cuisine, it’s natural medicine. It’s over with in a second.  It’s the opposite of tequila, but if you think a lick of rock salt and squeeze of organic lemon will help get it down … we won’t judge! 

WHAT WILL I EXPERIENCE? HOW QUICKLY DOES IT WORK?
In my experience most people feel a noticeable improvement to their energy levels within 45-60minutes of drinking the juice on an empty stomach. But don’t expect the sudden surge of energy that coffee or Redbull brings.  It’s a marked improvement followed by a slow burn. If you’re an athlete you should notice improved energy levels, strength and endurance throughout the week.  Improved energy levels on a sustained basis is the thing I hear the most from Wheatgrass Newbies.In my own experience …. when I drink wheatgrass I have sustained energy all day. I sleep better, and I fight off colds and flu in a jiffy.  If my improved moods, and ability to take life with a pinch of salt, have been a result of daily wheatgrass too … well, let’s just say, I wouldn’t  rule it out.

 

THINK … “ENERGISER BUNNY”….It’s really this simple…we are big batteries. When we’re rocking and rolling we are well alkalised.  When we run out of energy we are too acid  (think of the battery acid that leaks from your battery when it’s no longer functioning).

The dominant Western Diet and Lifestyle is highly acid forming (dairy, meats, stress, high intensity cardio training, sugar, alcohol).  And we don’t balance that with enough alkalising foods and activities (dark green leafy veg, meditation etc).

Wheatgrass is PACKED with alkalising minerals.  It’s the ultimate dark leafy green. And having just been sprouted, and in the early stage of growth…it’s jam packed with enzymes too. These minerals and enzymes combine to improve the alkalinity of your blood, assist digestion and healing, and boost your energy levels. You won’t notice the alkalinity, but you can feel the improved energy. 

WHAT WILL IT COST?
1 x Wheatgrass Shot is R15 
TOTAL FOR 5 DAYS = R75

I deliver 30ml wheatgrass shots in a little glass bottles to clients around Knysna every day. If your shots are delivered to you, you will need to pay R5 per bottle which is refundable on return of the bottles.
More on WHY IS WHEATGRASS GOOD FOR YOU?
There are lots of reasons to drink freshly juiced wheatgrass – here are 50 of them:
http://thechalkboardmag.com/50-reasons-to-drink-wheatgrass-everyday
Below I’ve listed my TOP 5 REASONS to drink wheatgrass juice regularly:
1. “Wheatgrass juice is an effective healer because it contains all minerals known to man, and vitamins A, B-complex, C, E, l and K. It is extremely rich in protein, and contains 17 amino acids, the building blocks of protein.”
2. “Chlorophyll improves blood sugar problems.”
3. “Wheatgrass juice is a superior detoxification agent compared to carrot juice and other fruits and vegetables.
4. Wheatgrass Juice is one of the best sources of living chlorophyll available today. (However, to get the full benefit, the chlorophyll must come fresh from a living plant).”  “Chlorophyll, is an important blood builder. The chlorophyll molecules closely resemble that of the hemin molecule, the pigment which combines with protein to form hemoglobin. The major difference is the chlorophyll molecule contains magnesium as it’s central atom, and the hemin molecule contains iron. The molecular structure of these two substances is almost identical in all other respects.”

 

5. “By taking wheatgrass juice, one may feel an increase in strength and endurance, renewed health and spirituality, and experience an overall sense of well-being.”
