Inside Juice Mix: Wheatgrass, Pea Shoots and
Health Benefits by Dr. Allison Freeman, ND
Wheatgrass: Highest caloric value of the microgreens, as well as 8g protein/cup. May support in regulating blood sugar levels and balancing insulin levels. The deep green colour of the wheatgrass contains a high chlorophyll level. This green has the power for renewal for the body as a whole, as well as a special healing value for the liver. For the liver, wheatgrass can help to elevate glutathione levels, the master antioxidant for supporting the 2 major phases of liver detoxification. While wheatgrass has been known as a plant for juicing, it can also be pulverized by a high power blender and this method ensures the fibre can also be consumed. Wheatgrass contains some anti-microbial properties to maintain healthy gut function. May help in blood sugar regulation, insulin balance and healthy weight loss.
Pea shoots contain nutrients to support healthy blood sugar metabolism. The high folate content protects cells from DNA damage associated with numerous chronic diseases. They are heart-healthy absorbable vitamin K to regulate blood clotting and high fibre content. The choline also supports fat metabolism in the liver.
Sunflower microgreens have a sweet and warming thermal nature. They are a complete protein, meaning they contain all the essential amino acids. When added to meals, the protein content can enhance a sense of satiety to the meal, without adding a feeling of fullness. This can be useful for athletes, growing children, or anyone seeking balanced weight.
