Since the 1930s a lot of research has been carried out on cereal grasses and their healing properties by Charles Franklin Schnabel -the father of Wheatgrass- who concluded that:
“28g of wheat grass juice has more nutritional value than 21/2 pounds of garden vegetables.”
The most extensive research has probably been carried out by a japanese business man called Yoshihide Nagiwara, who due to severe illness, began to search personally for a food which would promote good health by vitalising the body’s own power of healing.
