New and it’s FDA Approved: Wheatgrass Lemon

Our new product is here!

Wheatgrass is a good blood builder, anti-bacterial and good for digestion.

And don’t we ALL just love Lemon, with its tangy, sour taste and fresh/perky smell!

The lemon is a rich source of nutrients like calcium, potassium, vitamin C and pectin fibre. Like wheatgrass, it has medicinal values and antibacterial properties.

Drinking wheatgrass with lemon regularly will help in removing overall acidity in the body including uric acid which causes pain and inflammation in the joints. Let’s keep building up our pH balance.
