MANILA, Philippines –  Doctors tell you that when you have diabetes, your pancreas just doesn‘t produce enough insulin — or no insulin at all. Because your pancreas is the next link in the digestion chain, whatever you eat goes directly to this delicate organ. So instead of digesting food and producing insulin, it now becomes a “shock organ” so severely damaged by your diet that it eventually produces less and less insulin until you are diagnosed with diabetes. Scientists have discovered that the root cause of diabetes starts when your pancreas becomes diseased by acids: Sugars, carbohydrates, excess fats, and uric acid (all very common in our modern diets) keep going from the stomach directly to the pancreas. Our radical change in diet has actually transformed the pancreas into the first line of defense against acids, waste, and toxins that all of us ingest and keep ingesting every day. This is when you eventually reach the pre-diabetes stage. And if you don’t stop these attacks on your pancreas, you will surely develop full- blown diabetes.

American microbiologist, nutrition scientist, and leading research scientist Dr Robert Young reveals his findings that are currently sending shockwaves throughout the scientific community. “…Beta cells surrounded by acids do not or cannot produce sufficient insulin. Acids destroy insulin receptor sites on the cellular membrane so body cells cannot properly use the hormone. If alkalinity is not soon restored, disease, including diabetes, takes hold.”

The cells that are responsible for producing insulin are called beta cells that are constantly surrounded by an overdose of acids from the food that we eat. This causes the beta cells to be severely damaged and cripple the pancreas, preventing it from producing insulin. As soon as these acids stop overflowing the pancreas, it gets a rest from constantly trying to absorb and neutralize them. Once you cleanse the pancreas from the overflow of acids, the pancreas starts to rebuild itself — enabling it to rebuild the beta cells to their natural function of producing insulin.

Wheatgrass, the king of alkaline food, cleanses, alkalizes, and nourishes the body of the diabetic patient. As a potent acid buster, it acts as a powerful detergent that washes off excess acidity in the body for a stronger immune system to help put an end to the unhealthy imbalance in the body’s acid-alkaline pH level.

Studies further show that aside from fruits and vegetables, wheatgrass is the single, most effective vegetable in cleaning up excess acidic waste in the body and cleansing the pancreas completely from systemic acidosis because of its high fiber content. The high fiber content of wheatgrass converts to blood sugar more slowly because fiber slows down the absorption of food. Fiber can also help reduce cholesterol levels in the blood. When taken before a meal, wheatgrass regulates the absorption of sugar and cholesterol from the food and prevents the sudden rise of blood sugar level.

Easy Pha-Max Wheatgrass is made from 100-percent natural wheatgrass grown in Malaysia under strict quality control. Certified organic, it’s the only one in the world that combines the leaves and roots. Wheatgrass also contains 17 amino acids, 13 vitamins, 25-percent more protein (more than meat, fish, eggs, beans or dairy products), 10 minerals, including potassium and magnesium, and other nutrients that support the energy level and overall health of diabetics.
