1 oz = 2.5 lb of Greens
Just one Green Shot of wheatgrass is nutritionally equivalent to 2.5 lb of green veggies. That's way more than your typical American eats in a day. Wheatgrass is an extremely nutrient-dense superfood. It is young sprouted wheat, high in active "live" nutrients. Providing your body with these types of foods (greens, and especially sprouts) allows you to not only be at peak health, but for your body to heal itself.
This is what makes the Green Shot "Green". Chlorophyll has a number of benefits such as being a natural antibiotic and possibly aiding in increasing blood oxygen levels (as it is similar in composition to hemoglobin).
But its more than that. As a primary producer (organisms which contain chlorophyll), wheatgrass is the closest you can get "to the source". All living things get their bio-energy by first eating another primary producer, which gets its energy direct from the sun. So when you consume greens, its like taking in pure "life energy", that's why they're so good.
Vitamins & Minerals
Wheatgrass contains nearly all of the common vitamins and minerals found in the soil it grows in. These include vitamins like A, C, & K, as well as minerals like Potassium, Iron, & Calcium (to name a few). You also get trace elements like Selenium and Zinc. These larger macro-nutrients are the ones you would likely find on a nutritional labeling, except for the fact that wheatgrass has extremely small quantities of all these nutrients. Actually this is better! Your body doesn't need or want high dosages of any one particular nutrient. Instead, wheatgrass is like a blanket multi-vitamin, covering the full spectrum with tiny portions.

Why The Green Shot is the best wheatgrass:
New York has become known to have the most potent, green, fresh and sweet wheatgrass in the world. This is due to Perfect Foods' over 30 years of providing and building the wheatgrass industry. You'll notice that other wheatgrass brands are not as strong or sweet and therefore will not provide the same benefit. You can know you're getting The Green Shot if you see our posters in the window of the juice bar or ask the juice bartender.
