Wheatgrass juice is the juice extracted from red wheatberry seed sprouts.
This strain of wheat has been used for thousands of years all around the world for its healing properties. The juice from Wheatgrass is high in Chlorophyll, it contains 70% chlorophyll, active enzymes, amino acids, vitamins and other important nutrients.
Science has proven that chlorophyll arrests growth and development of unfriendly bacteria.
It is, in essence, liquid energy from the sun. It is the life force that nature uses to explode plants into greenery every Spring, plant blood. Chlorophyll cleans the blood, increases the function of the heart, improves colon functioning. It is practically identical to human blood except that magnesium is in its nucleus instead of iron.
Sprout the seeds in water for 6 to 12 hours. (Optional: Use a LITTLE bit of food grade H2O2 in the water to increase the amount of seeds which will sprout.)
Mix organic top soil with peat moss (50/50 mix) and place in a seed trays. The soil/peat moss mix should be 1 1/2 to 2 inches deep.
Drain the seeds and spread them over the soil. The seeds should be touching each other but not overlapping.
Lightly sprinkle peat moss over the seeds to cover them.
Water the tray being careful to not distrub the peat moss and seeds.
Keep the trays in indirect sunlight for about 7 to 10 days and continue watering as needed.
When the grass is about 7 inches tall, harvest and juice it.
Mold is your only foe and a little mold won’t ruin your harvest (just cut above the mold).
Many people who are into growing things love to grow wheatgrass. If you are so inclined, I highly recommend giving it a shot.
