Although mankind has used the grain of wheat (Triticum aestivum) for millennia, only in the early Twentieth Century did we discover the exceptional nutritional richness of its young, leafy growth (cotyledons). Abundant in chlorophyll, vitamins and minerals, it is a superb, broad-spectrum superfood. It is popular with customers undergoing a detox regime, and a great basic support for an ongoing healthy diet.
A signature component of Wheatgrass is the green pigment chlorophyll, which allows plants to convert light into energy via photosynthesis. Chlorophyll is high in Magnesium. The protein in Wheatgrass has 15 of the 22 amino acids, including all of the eight essential amino acids that the body can't make for itself. Wheatgrass is thus an excellent source of protein for vegans, who often lack it in their diets. The vitamin content of Wheatgrass is also significant. It provides a good complex of B vitamins, including Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B6, B9 (folic acid) and Vitamin B12. The antioxidant Vitamin C is also plentifully available.
Wheatgrass is an excellent natural source of minerals. As well as the Magnesium in its chlorophyll, it contains Calcium, Copper, Iodine, Manganese and Phosphorus. These are all essential to our diets, and can be lacking in modern, processed foods.

A note about themselves:
"Rainforest Foods is a company with one aim: to bring you the finest of nature's foods. We manufacture them in the form of dietary supplements for one fundamental reason: because while relatively few people live near the rainforests, mountains or islands where many superfoods grow, very many people live modern lives where balanced meals at regular intervals are not always possible.
We search the globe for foods with unusually high nutritional value, which we process and bring to you in easily managed forms such as capsules, tablets and powder. Superfood supplements can help us balance and support modern diets."
