Blueberry, Banana & Wheat Grass Smoothie

I started my day off for the second day now with a smoothie consisting of blueberries, banana, almond milk and wheat grass.

Excerpts from "The Wheatgrass Book, " by Ann Wigmore.

Wheat grass...
Increases red blood cell count, lowers blood pressure...It cleanses the blood, organs and gastrointestinal tract of debris. It stimulates metabolism and bodily enzyme systems in enriching the blood by increasing red blood cell count, and in dilating the blood pathways throughout the body, reducing blood pressure.

Stimulates the thyroid, correcting obesity, indigestion, etc. The thyroid gland is also stimulated and normalized by the use of wheat grass juice - an important step toward the correction of obesity, indigestion and a host of other complaints.

Restores alkalinity to the blood...Wheat grass has an alkalising effect on the blood. Its abundance of alkaline minerals helps reduce over acidity in the blood. It can be used to relieve many internal pains. It has been used successfully to treat peptic ulcers, ulcerative colitis, constipation, diarrhea, and other complaints of the gastrointestinal tract.

Powerful detoxifier and liver and blood protector...The enzymes and amino acids found in Wheat grass can protect us from carcinogens like no other food or medicine can. It strengthens our cells, detoxifies the liver, bloodstream, and chemically neutralizes environmental pollutants.

Fights tumours and neutralizes toxins....Recent studies show that Wheat grass juice has a powerful ability to fight tumours without the usual toxicity of drugs that also inhibit cell-destroying agents. The many active compounds found in grass juice can cleanse the blood and neutralize and digest toxins in our cells.
