A Product Review (Giveaway - CLOSED)

>> Thursday, June 3, 2010

…And a giveaway for you too. But FIRST, let’s talk about what it is and of course my thoughts on the product itself.

Wheatgrass.

How many of you drink wheatgrass? Freshly juiced or powdered? I’m jealous of those who can stomach fresh wheatgrass shots on a regular basis. I wish I could but that’s too hard core for me! However, I love the benefits of wheatgrass. I know I’m missing out when not drinking it regularly.

Recently, I was provided with wheatgrass powder (plain and honey-sweetened) from BestOrganicWheatgrass.com. I’m always a little hesitant to try something “green” and uber-healthy so I hesitated to try it for the first couple of days. Sam tried it first and loved it! Which got me brave enough to try it myself. I first tried the honey one and mmm! It’s really good. Helps that it was sweetened but it had a nice flavor with no bad aftertaste. Next I tried the plain one (not at the same time as the honey one of course – ack!). And again, very pleasant flavor with no bad aftertaste. Of course, I favor the honey one only because it’s pre-sweetened but the plain could be sweetened to your liking too. And seriously, I’m not making this up: it is good.

Ding! Ding! Ding! Now I can have ALL of the wheatgrass benefits without the shocking wheatgrass taste from juicing it myself (come on, who’s with me on that?). Bonus: they’re individually wrapped so they stay fresher and you could take these on the go anywhere – just mix in a glass of water (can't get anymore convenient than that). Having the powder is also helpful in my case because we lost our wheatgrass juicer somewhere.

So those benefits I mentioned? Here’s what I mean:
  • Rich in chlorophyll (70%!) – helps support healthy blood circulation and helps prevent cancer by inhibiting the activity of carcinogens; antiseptic benefits, neutralizes infections, heals wounds, and aids digestion
  • Antioxidants galore – particularly rich in Superoxide Dismutase (SOD, like grass right?), which helps protect the DNA from free radical damage
  • Stimulates cellular repair and renewal
  • Toxin eliminator (your liver will thank you)
  • Anti-inflammatory – it’s found to have an even more potent anti-inflammatory effect than aspirin
  • Energizes
  • A deodorizer – who knew? In larger quantities it’s known to reduce or eliminate foul-smelling odors (body and breath)
  • And of course, ALKALINE – helps balance the pH in your blood; often called the King of alkaline foods
What I should also point out about this amazing stuff is that it is considered a complete food. This is because one serving of the Best Organic Wheatgrass powder provides 17 kinds of amino acids, 13 vitamins, 10 minerals, fiber, chlorophyll and over 100 types of enzymes. And it's gluten-free. Providing another great way of getting in your share of veggies and fiber for the day (best assimilated in the a.m. on an empty stomach).

More FYI, they grow the wheatgrass indoors, in a very controlled (i.e. sterile, air-conditioned, pollution-free) environment; only organic nutrients are used; grown aeroponically (no soil used [aka no mold] so they use the leaves and the roots); harvested on the 8th day thru a special high-tech process to ensure all nutrients are intact and available to use (basically it's a cold dried process thus maintaining the enzymes and nutrients).
And just for the record, I wouldn’t promote something I didn’t like just for the sake of a giveaway or anything else for that matter. I don’t roll like that. So I tried this out for awhile to see how my taste buds would like it and how my body would react. It’s all good! If I didn’t like it, we wouldn’t be having this conversation (or giveaway). Just lettin’ ya know.
