Once upon a time, you could not get wheatgrass unless you grew it in your own kitchen. In those days, growing in soil and keeping an indoor compost was standard procedure. Nowadays, you can grow quality wheatgrass without soil, purchase high quality juice powders, or buy professionally grown trays. Sure, you should drink fresh whenever you can. “SuperShots” are not a substitute for fresh wheatgrass juice, but they’re convenient, stable, portable, and palatable.
Wheatgrass, not unlike other herbs in the natural pharmacopeia, has bioactive components that can be extracted in the same way as other important herbal medicines such as the extracts of echinacea, ginseng, goldenseal, dandelion, St. Johns wort, wormwood, peppermint, burdock, etc. High levels of naturally occurring antioxidants, vitamins A, C and E, phytosterosis and amino acids give vitality to normal, chapped, cracked or rough skin. Evidence also shows that it may help reduce the appearance of aging.
How much should I drink?
5 mls (one capful) a day provides one serving for an adult and half that amount for children. Of course, higher dosages are required to treat illness.
Can you take too much?
There is no known over dosage, but some people may develop mild diarrhea, which can also happen taking fresh wheatgrass juice.
What are the storage requirements?
Room temperature is fine. Super Shots are very stable, but are best kept out of direct sunlight.
Doesn’t wheatgrass have to be consumed fresh?
Most of the health-giving properties of wheatgrass juice have been attributed to its chlorophyll. Dr. Wheatgrass says: Chlorophyll is only a pigment and that it is most likely the immune modulating effects of the “Grass Juice Factor” that provide its primary health effects.
Does it deliver the same health benefits as fresh wheatgrass juice?
Yes, but for different reasons that have already been mentioned above. We believe the most important component in wheatgrass is the “Grass Juice Factor.” This molecule, or group of molecules, appears to have the power to significantly boost the body’s immunity, thereby facilitating its ability to heal itself.
Is Dr. Wheatgrass a real doctor?
You bet. Dr. Chris Reynolds is an Australian born medical doctor who spent 30 years serving as a general practitioner. He became disenchanted with the standard procedure of prescribing pharmaceutical medicines because many of them never addressed the root causes of disease and only mitigated symptoms. They were also expensive and under prolonged use had side effects. He seriously considered dropping out of medicine until one of his patients introduced him to a fascinating story of healing with wheatgrass. He began using wheatgrass in 1995 and has been experimenting with it clinically ever since. Because of the difficulties his patients had in growing and using the fresh grass, he developed a wheatgrass extract and produced it for his patients. He spent 11 years and treated over 25,000 patients with his wheatgrass extract and extract products.
Is there any research behind these products?
Yes, there is. For full research annotations and extensive information, see Wheatgrass Nature's Finest Medicine. But throughout its history, wheatgrass has remained sadly under-researched. This has to do with the fact that a common plant can never be patented and thus provides no incentive for the large pharmaceutical companies to invest. Thus, it remains out of the mainstream. Conventional medicine considers wheatgrass snake oil precisely because of this lack of research. It’s a catch 22. Many herbal medicines fall into this quagmire. Thus, as an alternative medicine, wheatgrass suffers life on the fringe and a long and slow road to greater acceptance.See photos of the amazing work wheatgrass cream can do even for extreme skin conditions such as leprosy. These medical photos are tough to view because the severity of the skin damage. However, they indicate the remarkable results wheatgrass can achieve for a condition which has no other remedies other than plastic surgery.

Hey! Why is there no chlorophyll?
Here’s an old saw…. “Wheatgrass is 70% chlorophyll.” It’s a myth. Wheatgrass is associated with chlorophyll because of its green color, but the actual amount of this famous pigment in fresh grass juice is only one tenth of one percent. Even field-grown grasses that are exposed to solar energy all day are only one-half of one percent chlorophyll. Did you know that alfalfa is even richer in chlorophyll than wheatgrass? It?s the greenest land-grown form of vegetable on the planet and it is only about one percent chlorophyll. (To learn more about chlorophyll in wheatgrass read Wheatgrass Nature’s Finest Medicine). As it turns out, chlorophyll is only one of several bioactive factors that gives wheatgrass its therapeutic effectiveness. Also, chlorophyll is one of the factors that makes wheatgrass perishable. By removing the small amount of chlorophyll, Dr. Wheatgrass has been able to produce a stable product with a prolonged shelf life. This expands the product’s availability so more people can discover the benefits of wheatgrass.
Here is a quote from a study done on wheatgrass sprouts. Although the young sprouts hadn’t yet developed chlorophyll, they still worked.
“The strong inhibition of BP mutagenicity with non-chlorophyllic wheat sprout extract suggests that chlorophyll is not the main compound responsible for the antimutagenic activity.” –Dr. Chu en Lau, medical researcher.
Why is Fructose in the ingredients?
Dr. Wheatgrass decided to address the most virulent complaint about wheatgrass: its taste. Because this is an extract, alcohol is used to derive the active ingredients just like it is in popular herbal extracts like echinacea and ginseng. The source of this alcohol is sugar cane. The Super Shots have added sugar (sucrose) to counter the alcohol and wheatgrass taste. That plus a hint of citrus gives this wheatgrass drink its friendly flavor. Dr. Wheatgrass’ goal is to spread the word about wheatgrass to a wider audience. Sweetening the taste is part of it. Hold it under your tongue for a minute sublingually to quickly absorb the grass shot through the tiny blood vessels. The Skin Recovery Spray contains glycerol which is a sugar alcohol. Glycerine is a colorless, odorless, sweet-tasting viscous liquid.
Explanation of ingredients:
Purified water [the primary ingredient] Triticum vulgare [wheatgrass sprout extract the main therapeutic factor] Citrus aurantium amara extract [bitter orange used for its essential oil and antibacterial properties] Glycerine [a sugar alcohol central to all triglycerides]
