Wheat and Barley Grass

Pines Wheat Grass is one of the staples my family has been buying since I was a teenager. I am going to talk about some basic tools in my kit this week. Wheatgrass is one of them. Barley grass is a little newer to my toolkit.

I prefer the powdered version, but I was only able to get the tablets at the health food store. I love the smell of wheatgrass. I think the powder smells like chocolate.

I eat a ton a veggies, but I still like to take Pines wheatgrass or barley grass. I put the powder in water when I need a pick me up. I have given it to my diabetic neighbor when her blood sugar was low. She really liked it. My dad has used it for years and it helps with his diabetes. He even grew some peach fuzz on his balding scalp. You’ll see on YouTube a lady growing streaks of blond hair after having a head of gray hair.

It’s also great stuff for those who don’t eat their veggies. Or it’s great for travel when you can’t eat fresh veggies. And in these uncertain times, it’s great to have this in your cupboard. You can survive on water and wheatgrass if you really have to.

Wheatgrass has antioxidant, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s great for your immune system, heart health, and gut health. It has calcium, potassium, and manganese for muscle and energy production. There is a significant amount of vitamin A for the eyes, vitamin C to ward off colds, iron for getting oxygen to the muscles, and folate for red cell production and to fight anemia.

Barley grass provides a natural balance of protein, minerals, vitamins, dietary fiber, chlorophyll, and carotenoids. Some people prefer the taste over wheatgrass. Pines cuts their barley grass earlier than their competitors so you get all the nutrients at their height.

Both have chlorophyll and protein. Two potentially hot topics. Baby formula and veggie eaters getting their protein. Chlorophyll improves milk function in lactating mothers. Yep. (For those who have that option.) And veggies do have protein. With seven tablets of either grass you will get 1 gram of protein.

Pines’ grasses are gluten free, non-gmo, raw, and USDA organic. Yeah they are gluten free because they cut the grass low and early. They are packed in brown glass to preserve the product.

You can take seven tablets or one tablespoon of either to get a serving of deep green leafy vegetables. Wheatgrass or barley grass also is good in a smoothie. And I paid $18 for 250 tablets of Pines. I’m chewing on one right now. Yum!

Here are two other basic items in my healthy tool kit:

Colloidal Silver

Berkey Water System

Happy Vegan!
