A nourishing green superfood powder that is also renowned for its body detoxification properties

Novato, California (July 27, 2010) – Wheatgrass has long been revered as a nutritious source of healthy energy and as a food that can help cleanse the blood and body of toxins. The new Organic Freeze-Dried Wheatgrass Powder from Navitas Naturals is a green superfood that is made from fresh, sweet wheatgrass juice that has been dried at cold-temperatures to lock in its peak nutrition.

Wheatgrass powder is a nourishing green superfood that is easy to incorporate into the diet, either in smoothie recipes, blended into a favorite beverage or water, or even sprinkled on salads. Research has shown that this highly concentrated wheatgrass powder contains 70 percent chlorophyll, more than 80 minerals and vitamins, live enzymes, amino acids and an abundance of antioxidants. Each ½ Tsp. serving of this raw food also contains 20 percent of the daily recommended fiber.

Offered in a 1-ounce re-sealable pouch for $29.99, Navitas Naturals Organic Freeze-Dried Wheatgrass Powder is certified organic, gluten-free, kosher, vegan and is a raw living food that contains no additives, fillers, binders or preservatives. Compared to other food drying processes, such as spray drying or air drying, freeze drying is known to better retain the characteristics of raw food. It also retains more flavor and the process results in reconstituted textures that most closely represent the original wheatgrass juice. In addition, more enzymes remain active in a freeze-dried food than those using another process, and those enzymes are reactivated simply by adding liquid.

Wheatgrass contains vital nutrients (such as a wealth of chlorophyll) that are known to provide regenerative and protective functions within the body. Many people are afflicted by an acidic imbalance in their blood that can cause the body to store cholesterol in arteries as protection from acidic blood. Wheatgrass powder is an alkaline superfood that helps to neutralize acidity and restore blood to a healthy pH. Unlike other grains, pure wheatgrass juice does not pose concerns for people with wheat allergies. Although it is grown from grain, it is completely transformed into a vegetable with none of the allergic proteins common to glutinous grains.
