·

Wheatgrass, Alfalfa and Barley Grass are the magic ingredients in our Heal Thy Self Greens and each bring their own amazing health benefits and superfood properties to the table!

Everything You Need to Know About Wheatgrass, Alfalfa & Barley Grass

Wheatgrass is the freshly sprouting leaves of the common wheat plant Triticum Aestivum.

Wheatgrass is gluten-free, even though it's a wheat product. It's harvested before the gluten-containing wheat seeds sprout. 

Wheatgrass is not only super nutrient dense but very cleansing and super supportive in healthy gut activity. It’s also really alkalising and it’s said that some people have even reversed greying hair caused by acidity by drinking wheatgrass everyday.

Barley Grass is gluten free (harvested before the grain has grown) and full of fibre, protein and blood building iron which is great for energy. We get it can be confusing when many of us are avoiding wheat and barley grains to then see these ingredients on a green drink.

Our Heal Thy Self Greens is gluten free and full of the goodness of these plants at the sprouting stage when they are full of so much life force energy.

Alfalfa is cleansing and detoxifying, alkalises the body and is high in Vitamin K, Magnesium and iron for strong bones and blood. Alfalfa has also been eaten and utilised as a health food for the longest time as people noticed the nutritional benefits.

This dream team then means that your body is being nourished, cleansed and energised at a cellular level. So much goodness and so nutrient dense that a little goes a long way and that is hard to get anywhere else!
