Cinnamon is rich in antioxidants that inhibit blood clotting and bacterial growth (including the bad-breath variety). It also helps control your blood sugar. USDA researchers found that people with type 2 diabetes who consumed 1 gram of cinnamon a day for 6 weeks (about 1/4 teaspoon each day) significantly reduced not only their blood sugar but also their triglycerides and LDL (bad) cholesterol. Credit the spices active ingrediants, methylhydroxychalone polymers, which increase your cells’ ability to metabolize sugar by up to 20 times.

Have you Heard about WheatGrass?!

Wheatgrass is one of the most potent leafy greens on earth, containing a great source of vitamins and minerals. Buying your own wheatgrass powder or caplets is up to 30x MORE nutritious than tray grown wheatgrass juice shots.

 

Wheatgrass supports overall health and wellness. It sustains healthy energy levels & immune function while also supporting body alkalinity (building the blood). Wheatgrass cleanses the body, is high in amino acids (which are the building blocks of protein), and also fights and protects against illness by boosting the immune system. Wheatgrass juice protects the lungs and blood from water and air pollution, toxins, cigarette smoke and heavy metals. It is also a safe and extremely potent aid to weight loss since it suppresses the appetite and stimulates circulation and metabolism.

 

SMOKERS!!!

For those of you that have quit smoking or are trying to and find Cardio to be difficult, there is hope!

Wheatgrass has been found to dissolve scars formed in the lungs and in addition helps wash drug deposits from the body, purifies the blood and organs and counteracts acids and toxins in the body. It helps to increase the enzyme level in our cells, aiding in the rejuvenation of the body and the metabolism of nutrients. These enzymes assist in dissolving tumors. Since wheatgrass increases the oxygenation in the body, you can help offset smog, smoke and carbon monoxide and increase your endurance during physical exercise.

 

So WHY Wheatgrass??

Bottom Line… There is no debate that consuming dark leafy green vegetables is extremely beneficial for our health. Given that over 90% of us fall short of getting 5 servings of vegetables every day, wheatgrass offers an easier and effective way to meet this goal. So if you are reading my blog to get fit and stay healthy, take my advice and go to your local Vitamin Shoppe or GNC and pick this stuff up!
