Nutrient Dense Superfood: Wheatgrass Juice Powder
In the 1930s, a feed chemist named Charles Schnabel had a bright idea, perhaps having glimpsed a future whose citizens had discovered how to mine a cooperative natural world for wellness and…what’s the word? Oh yeah. Power. Schnabel developed a way to harvest wheat grass at that juncture in its growth cycle where its nutritional potency was at its peak. That growth period before the wheatgrass blade begins to “joint" is a zenith of natural potency in the grass. Once the wheatgrass does indeed “joint”, its power is (understandably) diverted to the foundational raison d'être of Life itself - the producing of a seed kernel. When you take your daily dose of wheatgrass, you're getting all the incandescent fundamentals intended for the seed. And that’s everything the parent plant has to offer. Schnabel’s tactical interruption of wheatgrass’ development cycle was intuitive gold, and remains today the reason commercially proffered wheatgrass is so packed with energy and nutrients. Don't believe the hype? Why not try it out so you'll know for sure, just click here.
Schnabel’s genius was in unlocking wheatgrass’ potential as a superfood, but even he might’ve been stunned at how his eureka moment has played out. He likely didn’t foresee skin-tight lycra, for instance. And so now it’s come to this. At this or that farmer’s market you stare in wonder as an enlightened fellow creature, often in skin-squeezing bicycling gear, hoists a shot glass of vivid, neon-green juice and downs it like spring water. You've seen these little wheatgrass stands. Usually there is a blender, an overly-energized server in an apron, and a decorative little plot of earth with bright green grass growing straight up out of it with the rectitude of a marine drill sergeant's crew cut.
