Grass juice factor
Research chemists have proabably identified most
of the biologically active substances in wheatgrass, but the
exact nature of the elusive 'Grass Juice Factor' remains a
mystery to this day. It is known to be present in all the
cereal grasses and a number of other plants such as peas,
cabbage, spinach and white clover. In cereal grasses, it is
known to be in highest concentration in the young grass and
diminshes as the plant ages.
and research evidence has revealed the 'Grass Juice Factor'
to have, among other properties, powerful growth and fertility
effects in experimental animals and to increase milk production
In one case, pigs were fed cereal grass supplements
for seven weeks and gained weight rapidly. Weight gain stopped
almost immediately the cereal grass was withdrawn and replaced
with a mineralised milk diet only. When cereal grass was reintroduced,
rapid weight gain resumed.
The Grass Juice Factor has also been observed
clinically to have significant regenerative effects when applied
to damaged skin and on physical health in general when fresh
juice of the young cereal plant is ingested.

importance of the Grass Juice Factor, see Dr.
