Details

Melrose Organic Clean Green Wheat Grass tablets are wholesome green foods made from the powdered dehydrated leaves of organically grown young wheat plants (Triticum aestivum). The bright green colour reflects the abundance of chlorophyll, a source of magnesium. Chlorophyll is sensitive to light - our answer is to use light opaque containers to prevent photon oxidation.

Not all wheatgrass leaves are harvested at their nutritional peak. Since 1935 scientists have known that the highest concentrations of nutrients are present for just a few critical days. By the time the young sprout reaches its nutritional peak it is between 6 and 8 inches tall. It then forms a joint that goes on to form the stalk of the grain.

At harvest, only the top 10 centimetres of the grass are harvested because this section has the richest content of nutrients. Harvest occurs just prior to jointing. Once jointing occurs, the nutritional level in the leaves begins to drop as the shoot's nutrients are used in the growth and development of the head of the grain. After low temperature warm air drying, the grass is powdered in a special air mill at room temperature.

Wheatgrass tablets are a concentrated source of vegetable greens, essential to life. Chlorophyll, for natural cleansing of the blood and support to the immune system, and Beta Carotene, the precursor of Vitamin A, are present in highly significant quantities. Wheatgrass powders are alkaline foods. Alkaline foods keep the body from losing bone calcium.
Wheatgrass contains significant levels of anti-oxidants. We have known of the presence of the antioxidant superoxide dis-mutase, but the presence of Vitamin E Succinate an analogue of alpha-tocopherol, and an even more powerful anti-oxidant," 2"-O-glycosyl isovitexin, which is an isoflavonoid have been reported. Although isoflaonoids are potential therapeutic "anti-estrogens", they have significant antioxidant value as well.

Wheatgrass is a valuable source of folates and folic acid, an essential B Vitamin, to help prevent neural tube defects like spina bifida. Wheatgrass contains significant levels of Omega-3 alpha linolenic fatty acid. About 70% of the fat present in Wheatgrass is Omega-3. Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid necessary for brain development and visual acuity.

Contrary to popular opinion, Clean Green™ Barley and Wheat Grass do not contain gluten. This means they are safe for those who have gluten allergies.
