Wheatgrass is an increasingly popular dietary supplement to boost the immune system and your general health thanks to its rich mix of vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals. A single daily shot of wheatgrass juice can dramatically energize your life and give your body nutrients it has been sorely lacking!
Full of vitamins A and C along with 90 different minerals (it is especially rich in alkalizing minerals such as potassium), wheatgrass is not altogether tasty but does condense the nutritional goodness of a very large amount of vegetables into one quick gulp. Wheatgrass is also free of gluten, so it is safe for those pursuing a gluten-free diet.
Home Remedies: Wheatgrass is said to be an excellent detoxing agent. It also builds up the blood and the immune system.
[YEA] I went through a wheatgrass phase a few years ago after trying a few shots at a Whole Foods juice bar. Whew! Nasty tasting stuff, but the energy buzz you get from it is amazing. I decided that it was cheaper to start making my own wheatgrass juice and bought a stainless steel wheatgrass juicer (hand cranked) from some shop somewhere... can't even remember now! Then I also bought the wheatgrass seeds (wheat berries) from Whole Foods.. very cheap. Took a couple of weeks to grow, then I was on my way to juicing. I was so into it, I even tried (ha ha) a wheatgrass enema, which I had read about online. It was intense! My grow-your-own wheatgrass phase lasted about 2 growing cycles, then I gave up on it.
P.S. Never take it on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. You will pay the price!
Hello and thank you for this great site! I was wondering if using powdered wheatgrass (instead of the grass itself) will give as good results. I am interested in using to improve my overall skin condition. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
