Speltgrass.com & Homegrown-Wheatgrass.com have been established by Richard and Agi, with the mission to provide healthy, naturally grown and naturally processed spelt grass juice.
Our passion for wheatgrass goes back years. Agi’s mum started growing it in Hungary and feeding it to Agi’s dad first when he became a cancer patient and had two sessions of unsuccessful radio therapy treatments in 2006. Refusing to have the chemo therapy and with doctors already given up on him, he decided to keep a healthy diet and drink wheatgrass. He recovered and kept healthy since. Since than he’s believed in the extreme healing power of this product of NATURE so much, that he started growing it on a bigger scale (www.buzafu.com) using the extremely popular spelt seeds and became the biggest natural wheatgrass producer in Hungary.
The whole family has also been drinking it since on a daily basis. We decided to grow our own with the knowledge that we gathered from the parents when we moved back to England. Our goal is to introduce the remarkable aspects and healing affects of this plant to as many households as possible.
We can offer individual shots to consume at your outlets or pouches of 7, 14 or 30 shot pots for people to purchase and take home.
• Store frozen until consumed. Each shot pot may be defrosted in a bowl of warm water and consumed individually or mixed into smoothies.
• The recommended daily amount is minimum 1 shot per (30ml) person. If you are consuming our wheatgrass to support the treatment of a disease, take 1 shot on your first 2 days and increase your daily amount to at least 2 shots at a time from the third day onwards. If you wish to drink even more, carry on increasing your dose gradually.
• Defrost it just before consumption. Do not let it warm up, drink whilst still cold.
• Enjoy the great fresh taste and the excellent benefits.

Similar to any other veg or fruit, wheatgrass’ taste depends on the weather – how much sunshine and water it gets, what the temperature is like whilst growing - but considering the short growing cycle of the wheatgrass and the ever changing weather in England these factors can actually have greater effect on the taste of this plant. It grows fast and tastes really light and juicy in warm weather whilst wheatgrass grown on colder days will taste a lot more intense and concentrated. The more sunshine it gets the sweeter it becomes and really strict rules and timing schedules need to be adhered to when processing otherwise it becomes bitter.
On our tasting days some people compared it to the taste of runner beans, some to broccoli, spinach or asparagus, someone even said bananas. Our taste is different, some do like these vegetables, some don’t but either way well prepared wheatgrass should taste pleasant rather than gone off.
• Spelt (Triticum spelta) is an ancient grain, from the same family as common bread wheat (Triticum aestivum), and durum wheat (Triticum durum). The spelt kernel is covered by a tough outer husk, protecting the kernel from pollutants and from the loss of nutrients during storage. That provides a wider range and higher dose of vitamins and more chlorophyll in the grass that makes it appear deeper green. To prove this we made a tray trial with grass grown from grain with and without the husk.
• The spelt, the ancestor of all wheat was bred from sorghum by the Scythian kings. In the Pannonian Basin the grain growth was already blooming in BC 6000. Carbonated grains of spelt prove that it’s been well known and consumed throughout Europe including Britain for about 8000 years, but for the impact of urbanization it was suppressed by common wheat. In the mid 1980’s it was rediscovered and is living its renaissance in most of Eurosean countries..
• The spelt is a genetically clean ancient plant that withstands pests and illnesses, keeps the weed down very well and doesn’t ruin the soil; therefore it doesn’t need chemicals to be yielded economically. Thanks for its remarkable ability to survive in drought or frost it can be grown in any grain yielding area of the world. Spelt performs well where simple wheat would die because of the bad conditions.
• Spelt is a real survivor with such valued content that it well deserves to be called the holly manna. Therefore we chose this crop to grow, in order to make sure that our juice is going to have the most goodness nature can give.
After a short time of picking all plants start to decompose and they will start to lose nutrients. For the maximum anti-oxidant effect the best time for consuming fruits and vegetables is the day of picking. Food stays fresh for longer when they kept chilled as the speed of decomposing can be slowed down by cooling. If we put the fruit or the cut wheatgrass in the fridge (5 - 7 Celsius), the low temperature will allow for a longer shelf life on higher nutrient content. Professionals say that wheatgrass can be kept in the fridge up to 7 days, but do not have illusions, after a few days in the fridge the wheatgrass will be only a rotten plant.
Checking this is easy, you only have to know the taste of freshly pressed wheatgrass juice....
Freezing is a perfect chemical-free conserving method well known for centuries. Since humanity knows the cold’s conserving effect, uses it successfully. It’s being used for conserving vast amounts of vegetables, fruits and other food products which are sold in the shops all the time. We don’t need, a lot of "E letters" - amongst them with those conserving agents that we can thank a lot of illnesses, the over acidity of our bodies and with good chance cancer as well.
Freezing can even conserve life. Since no other method is able to do so, there’s no other interesting and undeniable proof for the good usage of this process. Only freezing makes it possible for the seeds to continue their life after defrosting as nothing had happened. Only freezing conserves sperms or eggs, so that they can be used after decades. Although these methods are not that simple that we just freeze it and that’s it, but the main point is the freezing. For the resurrection of higher life forms well experimented strict protocols, special materials and technologies are essential, but without freezing the whole process would fail.
Freezing the wheatgrass juice might seem to be a hassle at first as we need to adhere to strict rules to keep it frozen on storage and transport, but in this case, where we expect so much from this plant, we shouldn’t allow the smallest compromise in the matter of quality. We believe that freezing the wheatgrass straight after juicing keeps the highest quality of this plant, so we chose this method even if this was the hardest way to go.

Wheatgrass has a wide range of positive effects on the overall operation of the body through its active ingredients. But wheatgrass is not medicine, it’s a natural source of vitamins, minerals and proteins that are essential to the human body. It is good for everyone and there are no harmful side effects to it. Wheatgrass juice doesn’t contain seeds, therefore even people with gluten allergy can consume it with confidence.
The most important benefits are:
Vitamins: A (carotene), B1 (thiamine), B2(riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B6 pyridoxin), B7 (biotin) B12(cobalamin), B17 (laetrile), C (ascorbic acid), D, E, K (phytonadione)
Minerals: Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Sodium, Selenium, Zinc
The enzymes and amino acids in the wheatgrass juice are proven to neutralize the toxic impact of chemical additives in our food (preservatives, colourings, synthetic additives, sweeteners etc.) and the chlorine and sodium-fluoride in the tap water. They also known to counteract the harmful gases that we breathe in through the air (e.g. carbon monoxide and exhaust fumes).The increase of red blood cells due to the chlorophyll in wheatgrass results in better circulation and the quicker detoxification of the body.
Wheatgrass is extremely rich in vitamins, proteins, chlorophyll, antioxidants and minerals (as listed above) that are important for cardiovascular and immune system function. A high antioxidant and vitamin rich diet helps to maintain good health. Superoxide dismutase (SOD), an enzyme in wheatgrass slows down aging and protects from radiation. Taking wheatgrass daily will energize, strengthen the immune system and the muscles of the heart and improve the function of the lungs and reproductive organs.
The enzymes in wheatgrass stimulate and regulate metabolism. They support weight loss by catalysing the hydrolysis of fat and starch and also the treatment of diabetes by regulating blood sugar and blood pressure. The alkaline minerals help to restore alkalinity in the body.
Wheatgrass plays an important role in improving skin health as a natural detoxifier. It slows down the aging process in the cells and helps to rejuvenate. Application to the skin can help healing wounds and burns and reduce inflammation and itchiness.
A strong immune system prevents and fights illnesses easier. For the best results when curing serious illnesses a healthy diet and lifestyle has to be implemented. Stress must be avoided and resting is a must combined with some regular exercise if possible. Have to cleans and rejuvenate the body and wheatgrass can be a great help to do so.
The high vitamin content of this juice speeds up recovery from common cold and flu and a natural resistance can built up with strengthening the immune system by consuming wheatgrass on a daily basis.
Chlorophyll, an active component in wheatgrass inhibits the metabolic activity of carcinogens. It also helps to increase the number of red blood cells therefore is supportive in the treatment of anaemia. Selenium and laetrile (Vitamin B17) present in wheatgrass have anti-cancer properties. Wheatgrass contains at least 13 vitamins (several of which are antioxidants) including B12, abscisic acid, which is proven to destroy all cancerous cells. A glycoprotein also present in wheatgrass stimulates the renewal of RNA and DNA. It is also thought to protect the body from the attack of cancer cells by making the walls of cancer cells more open to attack by white blood cells.
HOW IT WORKS
Chlorophyll and haemoglobin
The haemoglobin is the component of the red blood cell, with an extremely important task: carry the oxygen to all cells of the body. Scientists realized, that haemoglobin and chlorophyll are very similar on the molecular level, the only difference is in-between the central core. As the picture shows below, where we have iron (Fe) in the human cell, there’s magnesium in the “plant’s blood”.
Further research showed that the intake of natural chlorophyll helped to increase the number of haemoglobins therefore anaemia was treated with success. The increase of red blood cells always results in better circulation and the quicker detoxification of the body.
Variety of enzymes
The most important enzymes and their effects identified by researches to date:
The most important minerals in wheatgrass:
Vitamins & their main roles:
A - key for good vision, a healthy immune system, and cell growth. As wheatgrass contains carotene, the pro-vitamin of Vitamin A, cannot cause an overdose in contrast to the Vitamin A in fish, liver and most dietary supplements.
B complex (1,2,3,5,6,7,9,12) - The B vitamins are a chemically related family of nutrients that work as a team for your mind and body: they are needed for normal brain and memory function, can quell anxiety or lift depression and increase energy levels. B12 is proven to destroy all cancerous cells. B7 (also known as vitamin H) contributes towards healthy nails, skin and hair.
B17 - Studies claim that B-17 helps to increase the body's ability to fight cancer. B-17 creates hydrogen cyanide. This compound then attacks and subsequently destroys cancer cells.
C – supports immune system function and wound healing, helps to protect cells
D - improves muscle function and supports the bones, protects the heart and contributes to the prevention of autoimmune diseases
K - adjunct to vitamin D, plays an important role in blood clotting
