Wheatgrass Research Article Summaries and Citations

Based on comprehensive scientific evidence and my own numerous clinical observations (>40,000) since 1995, wheatgrass and other cereal grasses appear to be capable of stimulating the activity of human growth factors. This process appears to facilitate natural healing processes such as hemostasis and hemolysis, wound, soft tissue and fracture healing, inflammation, various skin disorders and immune stimulation/modulation. The healing effects of wheatgrass are frequently attributed to chlorophyll, but I believe this hypothesis has little or no substance. The wheatgrass extract I use contains a barely detectable amount of chlorophyll, yet has a similar therapeutic profile as observed and recorded in numerous laboratory and clinical studies performed since the 1930's. There are clearly (many) other biologically active factors at work. These posts consist of summaries of research articles relating to wheatgrass and other cereal grasses dating from the 1930's.

0024. 25% more antioxidants in Supershots than fresh wheatgrass juice

Evaluation of the antioxidant activity of wheatgrass (Triticum aestivum L.) as a function of growth under different conditions.

Kulkarni S, Tilak J, Acharya R, Rajurkar N, Devasagayam T, Reddy A. 2006. Phytother. Res. 20:218-227

Antioxidant levels (phenolic and flavonoid compounds) of water-based (i.e. wheatgrass juice) and alcohol-based extractions of wheatgrass were measured from plants grown under different growing conditions over periods from 6 to 15 days. These conditions included tap water, tap water with nutrients, soil and tap water and soil with nutrients.

These extracts were compared with a commercially available wheatgrass tablet.

The scientists found antioxidant levels were:

1. Highest at the end of the growing period (15 days).
2. Up to 25% higher in alcohol-extracted solutions compared with freshly juiced wheatgrass.
3. Highest in soil with nutrients.
4. Higher than many natural extracts and vegetables.
5. Significantly lower in the wheatgrass tablet compared with both fresh juice and alcohol-extracted solutions.
