Trays of wheatgrass are now available in Switzerland at Manor supermarkets. Participants who took part in my class “Simply Raw – Level 2 – All About Green” already know about this, because we had the pleasure of tasting freshly extracted wheatgrass juice during the class, and I had ordered and bought the wheatgrass at Manor. I seize the opportunity of a recent message from Carole Dougoud of the Institut Haute Vitalité to further spread the following news.
“After many months of efforts, the Manor supermarkets are selling wheatgrass trays beginning in June. This is excellent news for all who appreciate and drink wheatgrass juice. The Manor stores need help in getting this product better known to secure enough sales and ensure continued supply. The aim is to have as many people as possible aware that wheatgrass is now available at Manor. You can also order and pick up your trays 48 hours later.
To promote this, activities on the point of sale are organized as follows, from 9.30am to noon and 3.30 to 6.30pm in each of the following locations: in Geneva and Marin on Friday 5 June, in Vevey on Saturday 6 June, in Monthey on Saturday 13 June, in Basel on Friday 19 June, in Lugano and Emmen on Saturday 20 June, in Sierre on Friday 26 June and in Sion on Friday 27 June. Please pass along this information to those who might be interested so they can join the promotional activities, taste the juice and buy wheatgrass.
The tray comes with information printed on the handle. There are two lengths of grass, medium and high. The medium height grass allows you to keep it several days so it continues growing to full height, while the high grass is ready to cut and juice. The price is 4,90 francs per tray of 100 to 150g which will yield 10 to 15 cl of juice (namely 3 to 5 ounces).”
I take this opportunity to announce that Carole Dougoud has just launched a new blog dedicated to wheatgrass juice, in French (there are many others in English, just search on Google!), which is called www.jus-vert.com, in order to answer the many questions people have and provide tips and recipes. It is just the beginning but I recommend you check it out. It is a wonderful initiative, congratulations to Carole! Let’s hope this news will bring more health and energy to our beautiful Switzerland!
The main benefits of wheatgrass juice
Wheatgrass juice is a very potent drink that is highly beneficial for our health thanks to its amazing cleansing, detoxifying and healing properties. It contains 92 of the 102 essential minerals, a wide array of vitamins A, B, C and E and minerals (calcium, iron, phosphorus and magnesium), and 20 amino acids including the 8 essential ones which the body cannot manufacture. Clearly, wheatgrass juice is a perfect source of protein! Wheatgrass juice is composed of 70% chlorophyll, a substance that is very similar to human hemoglobin which brings oxygen to our blood, hence its nickname of green blood. To be consumed without delay if you want to cure or prevent a number of civilization diseases. In the USA, many juice bars serve this juice that features a very characteristic taste (!) and fabulous properties that too few people are aware of.
Brian Clement in Switzerland
Another excellent piece of news from the Institut Haute Vitalité for those of us living in Switzerland: Dr Brian Clement is coming again to Geneva! The Director of the Hippocrates Institute in Florida and one of the leaders of Living Food will give a speech on Wednesday 8 July 2009 from 7 to 10 pm on the theme of longevity: the youthfulness of our spirit, body and all our cells, or how to prevent the ageing of our cells (age, disease, malnutrition, modern pollution) and enjoy life without limits.
The conference will be held in English with simultaneous translation into French by Dr Tal Schaller. It will take place at the University of Geneva, UNIMAIL, 40 Bvd du Pont d’Arve. The conference last year was fascinating, you can read more about it here. I am a great admirer of Dr Brian Clement who is a fantastic speaker and whose knowledge in the fields of health and nutrition is immense. Don’t miss this great opportunity to see him live!
