ORIENS WHEATGRASS contains wheatgrass powder. Wheatgrass is the freshly sprouted first leaves of the common wheat plant (Triticum aestivum).
Wheatgrass contains 70% chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is the substance which makes green
plants green. The chlorophyll molecule has the unique capacity to convert the energy of the sun into chemical energy (through photosynthesis), which the plant uses to make carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water.
It is interesting to note that the molecular structure of chlorophyll is identical to the molecular structure of the human blood. The only difference is their nucleus. Chlorophyll’s nucleus is Magnesium while in the human blood it’s Iron.
One study suggest that Chlorophyll from Wheatgrass may increase the number of red blood cells and therefore increase oxygen.
Wheatgrass also contain high amounts of nutrients. It is a good source of potassium, dietary fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E (alpha tocopherol), vitamin K, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, pantothenic acid, iron, zinc, copper, manganese, and selenium.
A clinical study done in India showed that “ORIENS WHEATGRASS contains many vitamins, minerals, and also it is a rich source of chlorophyll. We found from the result that Oriens® Wheatgrass shows significant effect on the improvement of haemoglobin level in one month of supplementation. It shows better significant effect on the haemoglobin level in those subjects, whose haemoglobin level were below normal limits. Therefore Oriens® Wheatgrass is helpful to increase the haemoglobin level in the blood.”
