The actual consumption of wheat grains in the western world began only in the 1930s because of experiments by agricultural chemist Charles F. Schnabel. He was so fascinated by his findings that he fed his family with dehydrated wheat grass. His family ate the grass for 11 years and he reported that none of his children suffered from serious illness, not even tooth decay. Since then, popularity has been steadily increasing, and today, wheat grass is used in many different contexts.
Why Green Machine Wheat Grass?
Green Machine Wheat Grass is ecologically grown on a farm in Canterbury, New Zealand. The grass is then dehydrated and ground to fine powder. Our wheat grains contain only 10-15 calories per teaspoon, and at the same time has all the essential amino acids (those our bodies cannot form themselves).
The grass is a good source of chlorophyll and contains many different vitamins and minerals. The chlorophyll content may increase the production of red blood cells, which can increase the ability to absorb oxygen and have a positive effect on VO2Max.
Wheatgrass is alkaline and thus plays a role in stabilizing the acid-base ratio. When we are physically active, the amount of acid in the body expands, which may adversely affect the ability to perform. Thus, it is ideal to use wheat grass to neutralize the pH balance. One of the other benefits is that it is source of calcium, which can contribute to a gentle and normal functioning stomach during physical activity. Green Machine Wheat Grass is ideally suited for a race or similar activity.
Within the first 1-6 hours after harvest, the grass is treated by dehydration where the moisture content is reduced to below 4% by air dryer. The drying process itself takes between 20 and 25 minutes. Once per hour, the plant is checked to ensure a good standard on the product.
Since wheat grass can improve VO2 Max and is gentle to the stomach, it is advisable to use before running/exercising. It can also be used as a supplement to the diet during the day, for instance a spoon in your breakfast smoothie or instant porridge, to give the body the right nutrition from the morning.
