Our organic wheatgrass and organic spirulina capsules combine the ingredients of these two excellent products.
With their high vitamin A content, they contribute to a normal iron metabolism, the maintenance of normal mucous membranes, the maintenance of the skin, the maintenance of normal vision and a normal function of the immune system. Vitamin A also has a function in cell specialisation.
Wheatgrass is the young, leafy growth of wheat. It has been used as a nutrient-rich food since the early twentieth century thanks to its wide range of vitamins and minerals. Wheatgrass is produced with minimal processing. The wheat is grown until the young leaves of the plant are at their most nutrient-rich and fertile stage. It is then harvested, cleaned, dried and ground into a fine powder. Our wheatgrass is grown in the fertile Canterbury Plains in New Zealand.
Spirulina is a natural blue-green algae that uses the energy of sunlight to grow. As one of the highest protein plant foods, over 65g per 100g, it helps maintain normal bones and is a rich source of micronutrients. This makes spirulina one of the best and most primal superfoods in the world. Our minimally processed spirulina is cultivated and harvested in pure freshwater pools and dried into a naturally nutritious powder.
Wheatgrass, despite its name and the fact that it comes from the wheat plant Triticum aestivum, is gluten-free. How is this possible? Because only the seeds of the wheat kernel (i.e. the ear) contain gluten, the grass does not. This humble grass has an impressive nutritional profile. Wheatgrass is rich in vitamins A, C and E, as well as iron, calcium, potassium and folic acid. It also contains 17 of the 20 amino acids, 8 of which are essential amino acids (which the body cannot produce itself). Wheatgrass, like other plants, contains chlorophyll. In fact, wheatgrass is 70% chlorophyll. (That is why it is nicknamed "green blood".) Spirulina, with a protein content of up to 70 percent, is one of the particularly protein-rich foods.
