For Wellness / Health: Wheatgrass is your Best Nutritional Supplement

When In Manila, give your body its nutritional needs with wheatgrass

Our body needs all the essential vitamins, minerals, fatty and amino acids for proper nourishment.


For instance, Vitamins C and E are effective anti-oxidants as well as zinc and bioflavanoids while Vitamins B6 and B12 fight heart ailments and help lower blood pressure. B12 along with folic acid is effective in preventing anemia while calcium and magnesium strengthens the bone and prevents heart diseases.


Fruits and vegetables are the primary sources of these nutrients. However, not all are fond of eating these nutritious foods while others don’t have the luxury of time to prepare them. The instant solution: food supplements.


Food supplements have become popular as people realized the importance of healthy living, paying extra attention to their diet. For others, these supplements compensate for their unhealthy eating habits characterized by too much salt, oil, sugar, and fats.


While food supplements, mostly in tablet forms, promise to give the body the much needed nutrients, they can worsen one’s health when taken in excessive amounts. For instance, too much Vitamin A intake can lead to headaches, nausea, vomiting and even kidney problems in the future. When taken in large quantities, Vitamin B6 can lead to serious problems in the nervous system in the long run. There is also the possibility that the contents of food supplement will have an adverse effect on other medicines especially if a person is under medication. For instance, the calcium content of the food supplement will interact with certain heart medications.


Vitamins from these supplements have a different effect on the body as compared to the vitamins that come directly from healthy foods. Dietitian and British Nutrition Foundation spokesperson Sarah Schenker advises the public to eat more fruits and vegetables instead to avoid the harmful effects of food supplements to the body. She adds that vegetables and fruits contain not just vitamins and minerals but also “many other plant substances” such as phytochemicals which are also good to the body.


A natural food source for all these essential nutrients is wheatgrass which contains carbohydrates, proteins, 13 vitamins, 10 minerals, fatty acids, 17 amino acids, more than 100 different types of enzymes, fiber, and phytochemicals including chlorophyll and bioflavanoids. Chlorophyll is to plants like blood is to man. Chlorophyll increases the amount of red blood cells which in turn carry oxygen to all body cells and tissues thus improving our immune system. Remember, the body needs oxygen or we die.


People can now enjoy the nutrient-rich wheatgrass, also known as the Super Food, as a food supplement. Unlike other food supplements in the market that highlight one or several nutrients only, wheatgrass achieves balance and the right combination of the nutrients and promises to deliver them to the body in its most absorbable form— powder.
