  • Balance pH

Our organically grown Green Wheat Leaf is made from the powdered leaves of young wheatgrass plants that are grown in the alluvial soil on the plains of Canterbury, New Zealand.

A powerful cleansing agent, Green Wheat Leaf binds with heavy metals in the system and helps flush them out thereby eliminating toxins from the liver.

It’s packed with 18 amino acids, as well as beta-carotene, calcium, folic acid, pantothenic acid, vitamin K, B6 and vitamin C. It also contains minerals including potassium, magnesium, iron, copper, phosphorus, manganese and zinc - all in an easily digestible form.

It is a fantastic source of chlorophyll, which has powerful alkalising properties that play a hugely beneficial role in helping your body establish a balanced pH level.

Green Wheat Leaf can easily be included in your daily meals whether it’s stirred into juices, smoothies, or your favorite dips like guacamole or hummus.

Naturally Good for You
Made from 100% organic powdered young wheatgrass providing concentrated, revitalising nutrients in an absorbable form.

When our bodies become too acidic, wastes become trapped in our cells and cannot be processed efficiently. Chlorophyll is an excellent alkaliser that works to establish pH balance - promoting energy levels, improved digestion and healthier skin. Our Green Wheat Leaf Powder contains Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) (a super anti-oxidant). It binds with heavy metals and helps flush them out, effectively removing liver toxins.

There are lots of great reasons to bring Green Wheat Leaf into your family life, and it’s a really easy addition to make. Here’s why:

Detox
Chlorophyll, the green pigment found in Green Wheat Leaf, is a powerful cleansing agent which sweeps away toxins from the liver, providing a cellular detox. Chlorophyll also combats the growth of microorganisms while its antibacterial properties help to counter toxicity, making Green Wheat Leaf an invaluable support for any detoxification process.

Immune System
Green Wheat Leaf contains abundant nutrients that support our immunity – iron, folic acid, and zinc are all vital to building new red blood cells. It is also one of the best available sources of vitamin A, stored as beta-carotene, which is of particular benefit to the immune system. Chlorophyll also cleanses the lymph system, an important agent in the body’s immunity.

Digestion
Flooding the body with chlorophyll, Green Wheat Leaf delivers a stunning range of nutrients in their most vital form. This cascade of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids, antioxidants and highly digestible carbohydrates helps to rebuild cells and restore health. As in the early grass stage of growth wheat and barley are closer to vegetables than grains, Green Wheat Leaf is gluten-free and easy to digest.

pH Balance
When the body becomes over acidic, wastes become trapped within the cell and cannot be processed efficiently. Because chlorophyll has such excellent alkalising qualities, Green Wheat Leaf can play a hugely beneficial role in retrieving balance in the body. Good energy levels, improved digestion and healthier hair, skin and nails are all associated with the correct blood pH, which calcium contained in Green Wheat Leaf can help us regain.

GREEN WHEAT LEAF IN THE NEWS:

Fights Tumors and Neutralizes Toxins
Recent studies [WHICH STUDIES?] show that wheatgrass has a powerful ability to fight tumors without the usual toxicity of drugs that also inhibit cell-destroying agents. The many active compounds found in wheatgrass cleanse the blood and neutralize and digest toxins in our cells.

Greens Help Reduce Risk of Various Forms of Cancer
Research suggests that eating dark green vegetables and foods high in beta carotene offers some protection from the development of lung cancer, with reduced risk of cancers of the ovary, cervix, stomach and colon. Some research has even indicated that the risk of cancer can be reduced significantly by ensuring adequate amounts of green foods in the diet.

WHERE DOES GREEN BAY HARVEST ORGANIC GREEN WHEAT LEAF COME FROM?

Our Green Wheat Leaf is harvested from the young and fertile alluvial soil of the Canterbury Plains, situated in New Zealand’s South Island. The soils are hearty, healthy and mature after many years under a sustainable organic mixed cropping and stock regime. The soil health shows in the nutritional quality of our wheat leaf. The irrigation water is fresh and pure and the atmosphere is clean and unpolluted - all of this combined with the high UV light produces deep green chlorophyll-rich leaves. Our farmers have been organically farming for over twenty years and take the utmost care to deliver Green Wheat Leaf with an incredible nutritional profile that reaches you in the best condition.

HOW TO TAKE GREEN WHEAT LEAF

Start with 1 teaspoon added to food or drink and gradually increase to 1 tablespoon per day over a six-week period. If you experience headaches or other detox symptoms, reduce your dose and continue to drink lots of fresh water. While dosage varies according to individual need, this product is usually best taken regularly – at least 4 days a week – over a 3-6 month period for optimum benefit. Green Wheat Leaf should not be heated above 40°C.
