In today's brief but very important post:
For the past 15 years, we have based all our 100% all-natural products on the sure and dependable nutritious and energizing wheatgrass.
However, there's a risk for some consumers of wheatgrass juice.
Wheatgrass juice can be a REAL RISK:
Wheatgrass helps eliminate harmful bacteria in your body. And making a juice out of the young, tender shoots is fine -- if you can stomach the face-scrunching, fist-clenching taste. But ...
If you let wheatgrass juice sit out at room temperature, harmful airborne bacteria like Staphylococcus aureus go to work immediately, doing what they do best: colonizing and growing exponentially, starting with that frothy foam at the top. There's even some risk in storing fresh wheatgrass juice in your refrigerator.
And if your wheatgrass is juiced in a machine that's not clean -- which constantly happens in busy national retail juice chain stores -- you're gambling with your health.
Read their WRITTEN WARNING word for word:
"WARNING: This product (wheatgrass juice) ... may contain harmful bacteria that can cause serious illness in children, the elderly and persons with weakened immune systems."
The lesson for all of us:
Be careful in blindly accepting claims of the "all good, nothing bad" nutritional benefits that the large food manufacturers and retailers use in their marketing merely to get you to buy more of their products.
Nothing feels better than being healthy!
With our very best wishes to you,
