Wheatgrass is a nutrient-packed member of the cereal grass family, which includes rye, barley and oats. Adding wheatgrass to your diet is an effective way to get your quota of five to nine servings of fruits and vegetables a day.
Wheatgrass powder is a natural product and it is produced and extracted by dehydrating the wheatgrass juice. Nutritionists love this supplement because it is packed with healthy and nutritional compounds that are known to be of high value.
Dr. Ernest Krebs, a renowned biochemist, isolated a new vitamin in 1950, and called it vitamin B17, also known as amygdalin (or laetrile). The bitter taste of apricot kernels is due to a compound found in seeds, known as B17. B17 is a substance found naturally in over 1200 different foods, including the seeds of fruits, such as apricots, plums, cherriws, oranges, nectarines, apples, peaches and raw nuts.
A balanced diet is essential for a healthy living. Few of us consume enough vitamins and minerals from the foods we eat. Dietary supplements are needed for optimal functioning of the body. B17 is just one of many nutrients that our body needs.
Apricot seeds represent the most abundant natural source of vitamin B17. Of all the foods that contain B17, it was demonstrated that apricot seeds contain the highest amount of vitamin B17 and in addition, it also contains vitamin B15 and natural enzymes.
Vitamin B17 fights a multitude of conditions and it is an aid in the fight against a diversity of infections and bacteria, by improving the recovery of diseased tissue. It represents an extraordinary tonic for internal organs (liver and heart) and improves vision.
Apricot seeds also contain cellulose and pectin, which can be used for treating mild constipations, favoring the intestinal transit. Iron is an important compound present in these seeds, which favors the production of hemoglobin and oxygen transport.
Several studies done in the United States of America, indicate that the core of these fruits are among the most powerful and effective foods for stopping and even reversing the aging process.
The combination of wheatgrass and apricot kernels provides everything the body needs for optimal functioning, and fights a wide range of medical conditions in a natural way.
