Certified Organic, Gluten Free, Oxygen-Free Wheatgrass!
The Natural Health Treasury Wheat Grass is a gluten-free, dark green, leafy vegetable that is certified organically grown in rich, fertile soils of the Midwest, which have been found to produce the best wheatgrass. M.H.I. Wheatgrass only provides you with a pristine product that comes from winter wheat planted in the fall, allowing the plant to absorb minerals through a deep and well-established root system during the cold winter months. Full sunlight allows the wheatgrass to build high concentrations of chlorophyll and nutrients. Our wheatgrass is harvested in the spring after a full 200-day growth cycle, when nutrient levels are at their peak.
Because it is grown as nature intended in cold weather, the plants are still only 7-10 inches tall when ready for harvest. We harvest the leaf tips, where the nutrients are most concentrated. After harvesting, the wheatgrass is dried quickly at low temperatures and put into frozen storage to prevent any loss of nutrients. The wheatgrass is only removed from cold storage as needed for packaging. Finally, the wheatgrass is packed in oxygen-free amber glass bottles to prevent the destructive effects of oxidation through light, air and humidity. This results in wheatgrass with the highest possible levels of chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytochemicals and ORAC value. These extra steps ensure that the nutritional content and flavor of M.H.I. wheatgrass remain at peak levels. Extensive in-house and independent laboratory tests are conducted from samples of every bag of wheatgrass at harvest and every batch of bottles. We demand superior quality in our wheatgrass from start to finish. Although it takes more effort to produce the most nutrient-dense wheatgrass possible, we are confident you will recognize and value the difference it makes in your well being.

Serving Size: 1 ¼ teaspoons (3.5 grams)
We only ship our Wheatgrass powder or tablets in glass. In plastic this type of product is absorbed by the plastic, and the plastic is absorbed by the food. Dehydrated cereal grass needs to be stored frozen or in oxygen-free containers to maintain those levels. Delicate components in dehydrated cereal grass deteriorate steadily in the presence of oxygen. Glass bottles or metal cans are the only way to seal in an oxygen-free environment and prevent outside air from seeping into a food. Unlike the few competitive products, The Natural Health Treasury's Wheat Grass, Barley Grass and Alfalfa are kept frozen or in an oxygen-free environment until one opens the bottle. The special seal inside the metal cap helps maintain freshness after opening.
If you recognize you need more dark green vegetables but don't have time to use The Natural Health Treasury's powder in recipes, The Natural Health Treasury's tablets will provide you with an economical and convenient way to add more chlorophyll, gentle fiber and dark green leafy vegetable nutrition to your diet AT A QUALITY LEVEL AND PRICE THAT CAN'T BE BEAT.
Benefits of WheatGrass Juice
Increases red blood-cell count and lowers blood pressure. It cleanses the blood, organs and gastrointestinal tract of debris. Wheatgrass also stimulates metabolism and the body’s enzyme systems by enriching the blood. It also aids in reducing blood pressure by dilating the blood pathways throughout the body.
Stimulates the thyroid gland, correcting obesity, indigestion, and a host of other complaints.
Restores alkalinity to the blood. The juice’s abundance of alkaline minerals helps reduce over-acidity in the blood. It can be used to relieve many internal pains, and has been used successfully to treat peptic ulcers, ulcerative colitis, constipation, diarrhea, and other complaints of the gastrointestinal tract.
Is a powerful detoxifier, and liver and blood protector. The enzymes and amino acids found in wheatgrass can protect us from carcinogens like no other food or medicine. It strengthens our cells, detoxifies the liver and bloodstream, and chemically neutralizes environmental pollutants.
Fights tumors and neutralizes toxins. Recent studies show that wheatgrass juice has a powerful ability to fight tumors without the usual toxicity of drugs that also inhibit cell-destroying agents. The many active compounds found in grass juice cleanse the blood and neutralize and digest toxins in our cells.
Contains beneficial enzymes. Whether you have a cut finger you want to heal or you desire to lose five pounds…enzymes must do the actual work. The life and abilities of the enzymes found naturally in our bodies can be extended if we help them from the outside by adding exogenous enzymes, like the ones found in wheatgrass juice. Don’t cook it. We can only get the benefits of the many enzymes found in grass by eating it uncooked. Cooking destroys 100 percent of the enzymes in food.
Has remarkable similarity to our own blood. The second important nutritional aspect of chlorophyll is its remarkable similarity to hemoglobin, the compound that carries oxygen in the blood. Dr. Yoshihide Hagiwara, president of the Hagiwara Institute of Health in Japan, is a leading advocate for the use of grass as food and medicine. He reasons that since chlorophyll is soluble in fat particles, and fat particles are absorbed directly into the blood via the lymphatic system, that chlorophyll can also be absorbed in this way. In other words, when the “blood” of plants is absorbed in humans it is transformed into human blood, which transports nutrients to every cell of the body.
When used as a rectal implant, reverses damage from inside the lower bowel. An implant is a small amount of juice held in the lower bowel for about 20 minutes. In the case of illness, wheatgrass implants stimulate a rapid cleansing of the lower bowel and draw out accumulations of debris.
Externally applied to the skin can help eliminate itching almost immediately.
Will soothe sunburned skin and act as a disinfectant. Rubbed into the scalp before a shampoo, it will help mend damaged hair and alleviate itchy, scaly, scalp conditions.
Is soothing and healing for cuts, burns, scrapes, rashes, poison ivy, athlete’s foot, insect bites, boils, sores, open ulcers, tumors, and so on. Use as a poultice and replace every two to four hours.
Works as a sleep aide. Merely place a tray of living wheatgrass near the head of your bed. It will enhance the oxygen in the air and generate healthful negative ions to help you sleep more soundly.
Enhances your bath. Add some to your bath water and settle in for a nice, long soak.
Sweetens the breath and firms up and tightens gums. Just gargle with the juice.
Neutralizes toxic substances like cadmium, nicotine, strontium, mercury, and polyvinyl chloride.
Offers the benefits of a liquid oxygen transfusion since the juice contains liquid oxygen. Oxygen is vital to many body processes: it stimulates digestion (the oxidation of food), promotes clearer thinking (the brain utilizes 25% of the body’s oxygen supply), and protects the blood against anaerobic bacteria. Cancer cells cannot exist in the presence of oxygen.
Turns gray hair to its natural color again and greatly increases energy levels when consumed daily.
Is a beauty treatment that slows down the aging process when the juice is consumed. Wheatgrass will cleanse your blood and help rejuvenate aging cells, slowing the aging process way down, making you feel more alive right away. It will help tighten loose and sagging skin.
Lessens the effects of radiation. One enzyme found in wheatgrass, SOD, lessens the effects of radiation and acts as an anti-inflammatory compound that may prevent cellular damage following heart attacks or exposure to irritants.
Restores fertility and promotes youthfulness.
Can double your red blood cell count just by soaking in it. Renowned nutritionist Dr. Bernard Jensen found that no other blood builders are superior to green juices and wheatgrass. In his book Health Magic Through Chlorophyll from Living Plant Life he mentions several cases where he was able to double the red blood cell count in a matter of days merely by having patients soak in a chlorophyll-water bath. Blood building results occur even more rapidly when patients drink green juices and wheatgrass regularly.
