Green Kamut is a premium-quality, certified organic wheatgrass powder made from 65% young deep green kamut leaf and 35% mature alfalfa. Mixed with water or fruit juice, this nutrient-rich powder yields a mild and rejuvenating superfood. A highly assimilable source of antioxidants, complete protein, chlorophyll, essential fatty acids, trace minerals, natural flora, and enzymes, it helps the body cleanse and detoxify, promotes cell regeneration, and boosts the immune system.
Kamut is an ancient grain that originated in the fertile crescent around 4000 B.C. An ancient relative of modern durum wheat, it is nutritionally superior to common wheat, with higher levels of eight out of nine minerals (particularly magnesium and zinc), up to 65 % more amino acids, and more lipids and protein. Higher in proteins and lower in carbohydrate content than common wheat, it produces more energy within the body.
Because it is rich in chlorophyll, wheatgrass serves several important functions: purifying, with an antibacterial effect on wounds and an anti-yeast effect in the digestive tract; anti-inflammatory, helping to counteract the effects of arthritis, stomach ulcers, colitis, and sore throats; and nourishing, in that it builds blood and helps promote intestinal flora. A recent study has also shown wheatgrass juice can be a highly effective treatment for ulcerative colitis.
Kamut was brought to the United States as a non-hybrid seed (in other words, it has never been cross-bred), and it has remained non-hybrid, thus preserving its exceptionally high nutritional value. Kamut is recognized by nutritionists as one of the purest nutrient-rich foods on the market.
Many people find that Kamut is less allergenic than common wheat. In recent studies, 70% or more of people with wheat allergies were able to eat kamut products without difficulty. It is also far easier for the body to digest.
A vital source of phytochemical elements, Green Kamut provides numerous benefits:
Contributes to cell and tissue growth
Stimulates cleansing and detoxification
Boosts the immune system
Increases energy levels
Enhances reproductive functions
Regulates pH balance
Exhibits antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects
Kamut and alfalfa (known as ?the father of all foods?) are planted together at a high altitude on an ancient volcanic lakebed nourished with mountain spring water. Immediately after harvesting, they are rinsed, juiced, and dried. The nutrient-rich juice is processed into powdered extract using a proprietary low-temperature (less than 88? F.) vacuum method that minimizes oxidative decomposition and maximizes nutrient retention. No fillers or binders are used. The result is the purest wheatgrass powder available.
In a comparative analysis of Green Kamut and Pines Wheatgrass tablets, Green Kamut tested 25% higher in protein, 10% higher in beta carotene, 90% higher in potassium, 148% higher in calcium, and 50% higher in iron, and it showed antioxidant activity 49% longer than Pines.
Two teaspoons of Green Kamut equal one ounce of fresh wheatgrass juice, with all the benefits at a fraction of the cost.
