VEGETABLE JUICES? WHY DRINK THEM?
In a world where many people are starving while others have too much food the weird thing is that many of the people who have too much food are also starving. Their bodies just don’t get the nutrients they need.
FOUR GOOD REASONS TO DRINK THESE VEGETABLE JUICES.
X FOOD! Many of us take in every day a whole lot of food that is tainted, poisoned, genetically modified, over-processed, full of artificial everything and loaded with sugars. This stuff may look good and may taste good but it lacks most of the essential elements of real food. Even worse, having processed out most of the natural goodness that might have somehow remained in the food the manufacturers add back synthetic substitutes - and tell you that it is nutritionally good for you. When we get enough nutrients we crave less food - which is why drinking these juices can also help manage weight.
X WATER! Whether it is simple water, has flavours added, contains alcohol or some elements of fruits or vegetables there is a high probability that this liquid that you must have every day is also contaminated, adulterated, over-processed, full of artificial everything, loaded with unhealthy chemicals, sugars and synthetics - and that includes water out of the tap. There is evidence that these juices can help this toxic overload. (please Google - we are not allowed to tell you)
X AIR! We all breathe air. About 20,000 times a day. The World Health Organization says that 90% of the people in the world are breathing bad air. In some cities (London, Paris, Berlin, New York, Beijing and many more) the pollution index is often so bad that thousands of people die every year and the authorities may advise you to not go out today! A clinical trial has shown that one dose of broccoli sprout juice a day gives you the phytonutrient that helps your body eliminate the products of this toxic air.
X EXERCISE! Our bodies need to exercise , or at least to move around, in order to digest properly, to eliminate properly (at least once a day) and be healthy. Due in part to bad food, bad water and bad air many people are too tired and too sluggish to get up off the couch. If the body doesn’t get enough real food and water and if it breathes bad air all day it will be really difficult to exercise.
Will drinking these juices every day correct all this? Sorry, it will take more than just these juices - but they are a good way to get started.
BUT HERE IS THE GOOD NEWS
The food we eat, water we drink, the air we breathe and the lack of opportunity some of us have to exercise have conspired to cause us so many health problems that now even a very small improvement can make a very big difference.
These juices are enough to start making a difference. If you are suffering now the changes can be dramatic. If you are already on the path to good health and enjoying life more these juices will give you an extra boost along that path.
You may be someone who is suffering from a particular ailment - which may be caused by or made worse by your food, water air or inactivity. If so please look at the pages on the juices. (and Google combinations of "your ailment"with broccoli, wheatgrass, broccoli sprouts and Sulforaphane. You will be amazed!)
Each juice has its own characteristics which may be of help to you so whether it is wheatgrass juice or broccoli sprout juice you will find benefits in drinking both.
It is hard to change your total food intake or total water consumption overnight. You certainly cannot just stop breathing the polluted air you live in. Nor can you jump straight in to a strenuous program of exercise if you are currently doing nothing. But you can get started to a healthier way of living right now by ordering these juices.
Order now so that tomorrow you can start getting better.
HOW WE DO IT
First, we buy only carefully selected non-GMO organic seeds. Every batch is screened for disease vectors.
Seeds are soaked or started in a proprietary system - we made it ourselves - that assures that the seeds get exactly what they need to germinate. This means rinsing the seeds with water every twelve minutes for about 24 hours and ensuring that the seeds always have lots of nice sweet oxygen.
Then we lay out the germinated seeds in trays, put the trays into a multi layer rack and then water them twenty four hours a day, making sure that there is great air circulation.
When the sprouts reach their perfect peak for harvesting we then gently squeeze the juice out (Yes! a low gear, slow speed grinder so as not to damage anything followed by a hydraulic press).
Then we cool the juice, add just enough organic lactic acid to prevent decay. (This is the age-old method of preservation of foods). However, we add the organic lactic (non-dairy) acid with a very light touch.
Then we seal the juice into single serving tubes using a pharmaceutical grade system. We mark the best before date on every pouch with a date that is 16 weeks from production. While the nutrient values should last at least that long the colour may slowly change from green to less than green and the taste can change too eventually – but the juice is always safe. So, no need to refrigerate – although some people treat it like a white wine and prefer to drink it slightly chilled.
Next we go from age-old methods to star wars. We subject the juice - already tightly sealed in single serving containers - to ultra high pressure. This kills the bad bacteria without hurting the desired qualities of the juices. Especially, this method leaves the enzymes intact and alive for you. There is lots of good solid science to prove this too).
So there you have it: perfect sprouts make great juice and a combination of really old and really new technology keeps it fresh all the way to the consumer - without any need for refrigeration. Enjoy!
Wheatgrass Juice is the liquid extracted from the sprouts of hard red winter wheat harvested at the stage immediately prior to the appearance of the first true jointing of the plant stem as it grows from seed. Young wheat grass. There are no seeds at this stage so that anyone allergic to gluten can relax. Gluten is only found in the seeds. No seeds. No gluten.
Wheatgrass was used back in the days of the old Persian Empire (about 3,000 years ago) to “restore the blood ”of women who had just had a child. More recently, wheatgrass juice enjoyed a vogue as a health tonic in the 1940’s. Then the age of fast foods and convenience foods eclipsed such health tonics.
Then through the evangelism of Dr. Ann Wigmore and others, wheatgrass juice again became known as a valuable tonic or nutritional food.
While there are people who make extravagant claims for the juice, there is a solid body of evidence from reliable sources that the juice is well worth taking at the rate of one or two fluid ounces per day. We are not allowed to tell you what is does for you but you can Google it and read carefully.
A primary ingredient in the wheatgrass juice is the chlorophyll that gives the juice its distinctively green appearance. It not only possesses chlorophyll, but also amino acids, minerals, vitamins, and enzymes.
Wheatgrass is a complete protein in that it contains all amino acids.
Wheat is the only seed known to have the ability to take up 90 or more minerals during it’s life cycle --- which is in effect, close to all known minerals. This means that if grown with availability of nutrients, in the proper environment, wheatgrass will be very nutrient dense due to it’s incredible genetic design.
Enzymes are important for every function in the body. Digestive enzymes such as amylase and protease are found in wheatgrass juice. This is desirable since the body does not have to produce these in order to perform the digestive function of “processing” the wheatgrass juice. Wheatgrass, in it’s raw state is abundant in enzymes. Juice that has been pasteurised (heat treated) will have lost most or all of its enzymes. Juice that has been spray dried will also have been subjected to high temperatures.
These enzymes, protease and amylase help the body break down fats and proteins. Because most enzymes occurring naturally in food are killed off during processing or cooking, the body lacks the tools to breakdown those materials properly. This means that instead of digesting the food it is processed in the gut by fermentation with sugars. This leads to indigestion, bloating and constipation. Worst of all the body doesn’t get the food values it needs.
Wheatgrass juice helps avoid such problems.
What's the point of spending your money and time shopping for food, bringing it home and preparing it if you don't get the food value from it. With the natural enzymes in wheatgrass juice your food will be better digested and you will get more value out of the food you have already paid for.
If food is properly digested and if you get all the goodness out of the food your body will feel more satisfied and you are less likely to have cravings for all those bad things. You may even lose weight.

Although published more recently than some of the particularly focused studies, the first listed here is really the seminal study that forms the foundation for many others. As such the abstract is included here.
The amyloid state and its association with protein misfolding diseases.
Knowles TP1, Vendruscolo M1, Dobson CM1
Nat Rev Mol Cell Biol. 2014 Jul;15(7):496.
The phenomenon of protein aggregation and amyloid formation has become the subject of rapidly increasing research activities across a wide range of scientific disciplines. Such activities have been stimulated by the association of amyloid deposition with a range of debilitating medical disorders, from Alzheimer's disease to type II diabetes, many of which are major threats to human health and welfare in the modern world. It has become clear, however, that the ability to form the amyloid state is more general than previously imagined, and that its study can provide unique insights into the nature of the functional forms of peptides and proteins, as well as understanding the means by which protein homeostasis can be maintained and protein metastasis avoided.
PMID: 24854788 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]
[the study suggests that this mis-folding of proteins is the genesis of many conditions associated with neurological development or neurological decay. Other studies indicate that sulforaphanes can stop or reverse this mis-folding.]

Exercise is Dangerous!
One of the most immediate benefits of exercising is that your lungs will start to work more efficiently and will increase their capacity. That is a big benefit because we are oxygen burners and the only way we get oxygen is by breathing it in. About 20,000 times a day every day. No matter what exercise you do the lungs will improve: walking, swimming, skiing, yoga, weights, - whatever.
But if you are in an area with air pollution that means that your exercise-improved lungs suck in more pollution with every breath you take – 20,000 times a day.
Recently, world governments got together for a big talk fest in Paris. They decided they would have to set more standards and targets and make a lot more rules and have more meetings.
Meanwhile we are all still breathing bad air that gets worse. If the governments are not going to solve the problem any time soon, what can we do today to stop committing suicide every time we inhale? Stop exercising? Stop breathing? Not good ideas.
But there is a way. The body tries to get rid of the pollution that you inhale - the liver and kidneys work hard at this. Once these organs filter out the pollution by-products such as benzene (!) some of it can be let out in the urine – but not all of it.
A group of scientists and doctors from American and Chinese Universities did a clinical trial in China giving a controlled group of people 40 micromoles a day of sulforaphane. Immediately they started getting rid of 61% more of those cancer causing products of air pollution. That 61% more, every day is a huge benefit to the body and slows down the accumulation of these poisons.
So where can you get a daily dose of sulforaphane?
The best source is from four day old broccoli sprouts. But getting them is just about impossible unless you grow your own. Otherwise, there is only one good source in the world and that is us, Vegus Foods, a small family business in Ireland that delivers broccoli sprout juice around the world – every little daily bottle has more than 70 micromoles of sulforaphane. Fresh pressed, raw, never frozen, never heated but keeps without refrigeration for 16 weeks. Magic!

Broccoli sprouts are a convenient and rich source of the glucosinolate, glucoraphanin, which can generate the chemopreventive agent, sulforaphane, an inducer of glutathione S-transferases (GST) and other cytoprotective enzymes. A broccoli sprout-derived beverage providing daily doses of 600 μmol glucoraphanin and 40 μmol sulforaphane was evaluated for magnitude and duration of pharmacodynamic action in a 12-week randomized clinical trial. Two hundred and ninety-one study participants were recruited from the rural He-He Township, Qidong, in the Yangtze River delta region of China, an area characterized by exposures to substantial levels of airborne pollutants. Exposure to air pollution has been associated with lung cancer and cardiopulmonary diseases. Urinary excretion of the mercapturic acids of the pollutants, benzene, acrolein, and crotonaldehyde, were measured before and during the intervention using liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry. Rapid and sustained, statistically significant (P ≤ 0.01) increases in the levels of excretion of the glutathione-derived conjugates of benzene (61%), acrolein (23%), but not crotonaldehyde, were found in those receiving broccoli sprout beverage compared with placebo. Excretion of the benzene-derived mercapturic acid was higher in participants who were GSTT1-positive than in the null genotype, irrespective of study arm assignment. Measures of sulforaphane metabolites in urine indicated that bioavailability did not decline over the 12-week daily dosing period. Thus, intervention with broccoli sprouts enhances the detoxication of some airborne pollutants and may provide a frugal means to attenuate theirsociated long-term health risks.
