The King of Alkaline Food
The Acid-Alkaline Diet for Optimum Health by Christopher Vassey
Vegetables in general can effectively neutralize acids in the body because they are rich in bicarbonates and other alkaline minerals like calcium, magnesium, manganese and iron. But among all vegetables, wheatgrass is hailed the "King of Alkaline Foods".
In a study done at the Japan Analysis Center, the alkaline properties of wheatgrass were compared to different alkaline foods such as lettuce, lime, tomato, banana, celery and even spinach. Wheatgrass' acid-neutralizing property is shown to be the highest at 66.4 megahertz as compared to spinach which ranked number two at 39.6 megahertz. Other analysis done on wheatgrass revealed that it has high levels of bicarbonates, alkaline minerals, trace minerals and oxygen-rich chlorophyll which effectively neutralize acids in the body. This alkalizing property of wheatgrass has a lot to do with the many health benefits of wheatgrass..
