SUPEROXIDE DISMUTASE: (SOD), an anti-cancer factor.
The more anti-oxidants we have in our system, the faster the free radicals can be safely de-activated. Anti-oxidants are both ‘anti-aging’ and health-promoting influences. They reduce cell mutations, artery damage and wrinkles.
P4D1: This is a ‘gluco-protein’ present in wheat grass, which has three main properties:
1) It stimulates the renewal of RNA and DNA - the creative matter of the body. This means that cell deterioration and mutation will be slowed down or avoided.
2) It reduces inflammation.
3) It helps the body attack cancer cells, by helping to make the walls of the cancerous cells more open to attack by the body’s white blood cells.
MUCO-POLYSACCHARIDE: These are a combination of complex and simple sugars which appear to stimulate the body’s repair mechanisms. Enhancing these mechanisms is important, because the body is constantly repairing and replacing damaged cells. Helps repair damaged heart and artery tissue.
Chlorophyll: is the remarkable substance to which we all owe our lives. This is because chlorophyll has the ability to capture the sun’s energy and lock it into plants in such a way that we can use it to sustain our own lives.
Chemically, chlorophyll is almost identical to hemoglobin - the substance which transports oxygen from the lungs to the tissues of the body. Out of about 50 atoms in the compound, only two are different. The main difference is that at the centre of chlorophyll there is a magnesium ion; whereas hemoglobin has iron in the same place.
The benefits of chlorophyll fall into three main categories:
Purifying: Chlorophyll has an anti-bacterial effect on wounds, and an anti-yeast effect in the digestive tract. It appears to counteract many toxins in the body.
Inflammation: It has the effect of reducing inflammation in arthritis, stomach ulcers, colitis, sore throats, and other inflammatory conditions.
