Who is Dr Wheatgrass?
"Dr Wheatgrass" doesn't actually exist as a person. It is our
trademarked brand. However, to all of us at Wheatgrass Pty. Ltd., Dr
Wheatgrass is Dr. Chris Reynolds, a general practitioner and the founder of our Company.
Dr. Chris developed the wheatgrass extract that forms the main
ingredient of our products. He has used the extract successfully in
clinical trials and in thousands of patients since 1995. He
has re-discovered the therapeutic power of wheatgrass that first came to
light in modern times in the 1930's. Leading the resurgence of
wheatgrass healing around the world, his life's mission is to make his
wheatgrass extract available and affordable worldwide.
Please give me a brief history of wheatgrass healing.
I have an allergy to wheat, is wheatgrass safe for me to use?
In most cases, yes.
Wheat allergies are usually due to gluten which comes from the actual
seed. Our wheatgrass extract is produced from young, vital wheatgrass
sprouts before the new wheat seed is formed. Therefore, Dr Wheatgrass
Supershots contain no gluten.
What research is available on the therapeutic effects of wheatgrass?
A large body of medical and scientific research regarding the
therapeutic benefits of wheatgrass and other cereal grasses has
accumulated since the early 1930’s. (View journal abstracts)
If you search under "Chlorophyll" and "Chlorophyllin" you will find
numerous studies and reports. However, as Dr. Chris says, "Chlorophyll
is highly unlikely to have any biological activity in humans. It's more
likely the Grass Juice Factor that does the work."
Science doesn't seem to have registered that fact and continues
researching chlorophyll to see what makes it tick. According to Dr.
Chris, it doesn't!
Please note: If you are concerned about wheat allergies, we recommend you consult your doctor/allergist
or nutritional consultant before adding anything new to your diet, including Dr Wheatgrass
