Green Goddess Pesto
Wheatgrass is well established as a superfood and is known for its ability to help cleanse and detoxify the body, increase energy and vitality. This powder is a concentrated version of Wheat Grass and is rich in numerous phytonutrients, iron, calcium, magnesium, amino acids, vitamins A, C and E and chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is a main component of wheatgrass and it also has twenty times the nutrients of other greens, with twice the beta-carotene of carrots. Needless to say, this super grass offers potent antioxidant properties.
