Rhonda Sweetgrass is passionate about helping people make the most of their lives and maintaining optimum good health. Rhonda is the founder of the Bondi Wheatgrass Juice Company and is distributing wheatgrass juice to a large number of juice bars and health cafes in Sydney.
She explains " In the past humans could not absorb the benefits of grass because we can't digest cellulose like animals can. Using recently developed technology it is now possible to extract juice out of wheatgrass, which contains more enzymes and aminos than any other grass. In fact wheatgrass juice contains every nutrient known to man." How did the Bondi Wheatgrass Juice Company begin?
Rhonda says, " I initially became aware of wheatgrass juice in the 70's as I used to grow and juice it for a family of 3 boys." "Much later I noticed the strong presence of wheatgrass juice in juice and coffee bars in New York whilst I was visiting in '96. Upon returning to Australia I immediately resumed a wheatgrass regime, starting the process of growing and hand harvesting that evolved into the beginnings of the Bondi Wheatgrass Juice Company. "I have always been keenly interested in the premise that 'we are what we eat' and strongly suggest the idea that a healthy sound strong body, clean of toxins is tantamount to the proper evolution, spiritual and otherwise of the being." What is wheatgrass juice?
Wheatgrass juice is an important nutritional supplement as it contains, in a bioavailable form, most of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes and amino acids needed for human maintenance. To get the benefit from vitamins and minerals, a person's total intake should come in a form that is as close to a natural state as possible. Many of the fruit and vegetables we buy today are nutrient deficient and although vitamin supplements have their place, they have been processed and are obviously nowhere near as powerful as 'live' food. Wheatgrass juice is an abundant source of the B vitamins and includes vitamins C,E, and carotine. Wheatgrass Juice also contains at least 20 amino acids, and various minerals and enzymes. Enzymes are important active ingredients in wheatgrass juice. They are the life force of our foods, and are required to carry out many important biological and chemical functions within the body. How should Wheatgrass Juice be taken?
Rhonda says " 30mls of freshly squeezed wheatgrass juice contains as much nutritional value as approximately two kilos of fresh green vegetables in vitamin, mineral and amino acid content. On an empty stomach wheatgrass juice is assimilated into the blood in about 20 minutes, and the vitality lasts throughout the day." Rhonda's mission
