Wheatgrass is likely to be one of the healthiest foods in existence. Most organic juice bars now put wheatgrass shots in juice drinks if requested.
The only downside of wheatgrass is that you must drink the juice literally minutes after it has been cut from a live wheatgrass plant in order to receive the maximum benefits.
But despite the pain that this is, wheatgrass is a special vegetable that should be entered into your diet.
What is Wheatgrass?
Wheatgrass is a young wheat plant. Instead of allowing the wheat plant to grow into its full size, the small wheatgrass is harvested. This grass is put in a special juicer designed to extract juice from wheatgrass.
Wheatgrass is an especially healthy vegetable that can help reduce incidence of a whole variety of health problems including cancer and heart disease.
Wheatgrass provides a variety of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are similar to those found in fruit juices. Wheatgrass also provides a very large amount of energy in the form of living chlorophyll.
This is a form of energy that is very potent and requires the least digestion. The chlorophyll found in wheatgrass is also very full of oxygen, which makes it an excellent antibacterial. In addition to these benefits, wheatgrass can:
- Help detoxify the body [Food detoxifiers]
- Wash out stimulants and drugs that are still in your body
- Neutralize bodily toxins
- Restore function of the liver
- Help fight diabetes
- Works as a detergent for the body, eliminating body odors
- Improves digestion
- Clears skin
- Reduces blood pressure
- Removes heavy metals
Where can we get wheat grass?
Found at juice bars and your very own home. Like explained earlier, many juice bars offer to add wheatgrass shots to juice drinks. At the juice bars I go to, wheatgrass can cost around $2. But if you want to save money, like with all vegetables, you are better off growing your own.
Wheatgrass can be grown just like other plants and you can easily grow wheatgrass from a tray that you place on the window sill or under a sunlamp.
Water your tray of wheatgrass everyday and watch wheatgrass sprouts gradually pop out of the soil. Once the wheatgrass has grown 8 inches tall, cut it and use it immediately in order to get the maximum benefits.
Many wheatgrass growers chew on the wheatgrass directly. However, you can purchase a wheatgrass juicer. Once you have juiced your wheatgrass, you can drink the juice directly or you can add it to a blended juice drink like the juice bars.
Wheatgrass is a wonder food that you should look into. Along with juices, wheatgrass is a miracle that can purge your body of toxins and fight a variety of illnesses while giving your body the energy that it needs.
Wheatgrass is an essential food for those who want to take their health to the next level. Best of all, its cheap and you can keep growing it with the satisfaction that you’re self-sufficient and you can grow your own food.
Wheatgrass capsules can be a great alternate to your essential diets which you don’t get from the process food every day. Consists of green pigment chlorophyll will give you Calcium, Magnesium, Idoine, Manganese and Phosphorus, Copper, etc at a sufficient extent.
