FAQ

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.

The history of wheatgrass healing goes back thousands of years. More recently, in the 1930’s in the United States there was substantial scientific research into the ‘Grass Juice Factor’ and other therapeutic and nutritional properties of cereal grasses. Because of its apparent ability to stimulate production of human growth factors, this discovery could revolutionise many aspects of medical treatment and enhance our understanding of the body’s immune system and natural healing processes.

In the 1970’s, Ann Wigmore started the wheatgrass juicing craze in the United States which ultimately led to a huge, nutrition-based industry which continues to grow worldwide.

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 wheat 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 Supershots.
