WHY BARLEY GRASS?
Barley grass leaf, in the young green stage is purported to be the most prolific, balanced supply of nutrients of any single food source. (Hagiwara, 1985). It is promoted by its champions as a complete food and a rapidly assimilated source of energy.
It is so rich in nutrients that it contains 30 times more vitamin B1 than milk, 7 times more Vitamin C than oranges, 5 times more iron than spinach as well as containing large amounts of beta-carotene, potassium, calcium and magnesium. It is a very alkaline food and quite neutralizing to the system. It is naturally high in enzymes particularly S.O.D. (Super–oxide dismutase) an antioxidant enzyme that protects our cells from free radical damage.
Barley grass provides generous amounts of natural chlorophyll which has a purifying effect on the body enabling it to eliminate toxins that can lead to disease.
Chlorophyll has figured prominently in medical research into tissue healing and it also has a recognised deodorising effect on the body. Some nutritionists have proposed that many diets today are highly acid in balance - as barley leaf powder is alkaline, it is therefore useful in restoring a pH balance.
The Barley grass leaf is naturally high in enzymes that can have an anti–peptic ulcer and anti-inflammatory function. It has been suggested that 65% of food has been processed in a way that destroys all enzymes (Swope, 1987). Our low temperature drying process therefore plays a significant role in maintaining these valuable enzymes.
The Barley grass in Australian SUPERGRASS is harvested, dehydrated and powdered in the same locality and is not subjected to any heat, friction or other processes which could cause loss of nutrients. The equipment used concentrates the green barley shoots into a micro fine powder and is a world first. With this technology Australian SUPERGRASS can provide optimum nutrition in its most natural form.
Imported Grass Juice Powder products have arrived on the market with fantastic claims.
Fact: These Grass Juice Powder products can contain up to 25% maltodextrin. This is a combination of maltose and dextrin, both simple sugars.
Note: The Australian and New Zealand food authority classifies maltodextrin as sugar.
Fact: The imported Grass Juice Powder products contain approximately identical amounts of crude fibre as the Australian SUPERGRASS blend. This is found to be from the cooked brown rice which has been added and does not contain all the nutrients that the whole, young leaf grasses contain in the comparable volume of fibre found within the young leaf shoots.
WHY WHEAT GRASS?
The rich green goodness of young Wheat grass leaf has long been recognised for its unique nutritional benefits. Extensive research over the past 50 years has confirmed the value of cereal leaf as a complete food, available in a natural synergistic form that makes it an ideal dietary supplement for health and energy.
The Wheat grass in Australian SUPERGRASS is made entirely from leaf harvested when the wheat plant is still at its grass-like growth stage, prior to stem elongation and subsequent seed head formation. At this stage the plants nutritional value reaches a peak for important dietary components such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, chlorophyll and carotenes.
A strict harvesting schedule, fast, hygienic handling of the crop, a specially developed low temperature drying process and innovative milling technology ensures that the Wheat grass in Australian SUPERGRASS retains the goodness and quality of the young fresh Wheat grass leaf.
Australian SUPERGRASS contains whole, young wheat grass leaf. It is not juiced and it has no additives. Juicing eliminates the natural plant fibre and requires chemical additives to prevent deterioration and facilitate the drying process.
The Wheat grass in Australian SUPERGRASS has a unique smooth flavour. Rich in chlorophyll known for its ability to aid digestion and has a deodorising effect on the body.
A good source of vitamin E, an anti-oxidant to provide protection for cells against free radical damage, it is particularly important in protecting fats, cell membranes, DNA and enzymes against damage endured by today’s hectic lifestyles.
Containing over 90 minerals vital for life, it is high in calcium for healthy bones and teeth, and rich in magnesium, potassium, manganese and phosphorus for a healthy heart, muscles, nervous system and blood vessels. Iron is also essential to combat fatigue and infection. Wheat leaf powder has a greater percentage of protein than eggs.
Selenium contained in Wheat grass is a powerful trace mineral and is important in maintaining a resistance to disease.
Wheat grass is high in iron assisting the body to transport and store oxygen in the blood and muscles, produce energy, maintain the immune system and is essential for fatty acid metabolism assisting the human body to detoxify and cleanse.
The Wheat grass in Australian SUPERGRASS contains no actual wheat; it is the young plant which is used before any gluten is formed. Therefore, people with wheat allergies are not affected.
The Wheat grass in Australian SUPERGRASS is grown on an organic Australian farm using sustainable agricultural practices and is free from pesticides, herbicides and synthetic fertilizers.
WHY ALFALFA GRASS?
Alfalfa, a unique complete food was once known in ancient Arab civilisations as the “Father of all foods”. Scientific studies have revealed that alfalfa contains almost all the known vitamins, minerals and trace elements needed for premium health.
The Alfalfa grass in Australian SUPERGRASS is made from fresh, green, vigorously growing plants of Medicago sativa and contains no additives or artificial colours.
It is slow dried at an optimum temperature of 38°C for maximum potency. Green Nutritionals final processing method ensures that the powder will disperse in cold liquids readily.
Alfalfa grass is renowned for its deep root system growing as much as 40 metres into the earth thereby absorbing rare trace elements that most plants do not have an opportunity to absorb. Alfalfa grass is one of nature's richest sources of nutrients, it is high in chlorophyll and is rich in calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, trace minerals, enzymes and all the known vitamins, including beta carotene, K and U.
It is also up to ten times richer in minerals than most cereals. The minerals are in a balanced form and very alkaline they therefore have a neutralizing effect on the intestinal tract allowing it to be properly absorbed. The Alfalfa grass in Australian SUPERGRASS contains high levels of the B complex vitamins plus A, C, D, E, K, and Biotin. It is also a rich source of protein, choline, inositol and PABA.
Alfalfa grass is high in fibre and a useful component in weight reduction diets, as its high nutritional value and ability to expand in the stomach reduces appetite. The high calcium intake also offers protection against fat accumulation and therefore enables fat to be used for energy.
For those who don’t need to lose weight, alfalfa is of benefit in aiding digestion. The leaf is harvested at its peak nutritional level and processed within sixty minutes of being cut.
The Alfalfa grass leaf in Australian SUPERGRASS is grown in Australia’s deep Mallee soils, renowned for their production of high quality cereal and vegetable crops and remoteness from industrial pollutants.
Alfalfa, being highly alkaline assists in the control of uric acid, which builds up around the joints, and can be a cause of arthritic pain & gout.
Alfalfa also works as a detoxifier, infection fighter and cleanser, and is particularly noted for its diuretic effect, helping to expel retained fluid from the body. It is good for colon disorders and helps detoxify the liver. Chinese healers in the 6th Century used Alfalfa to treat kidney stones and to relieve fluid retention and swelling.
CLEAN GREEN GROWING ENVIRONMENT
Australian SUPERGRASS is made using 100% organic young leaf Barley, Wheat and Alfalfa grasses from the mineral-rich, certified organic soil on the banks of the Murray River in Northern Victoria.
The clean, green farms where Australian SUPERGRASS is grown are certified organic by The National Association for Sustainable Agriculture Australia (NASAA).
When combined, these 3 highly alkalising young leaf grasses deliver a broader spectrum of organic nutrients in one perfect blend to energise, alkalise and nourish the body.
SUPERIOR DRYING & MILLING TECHNOLOGIES
