Wheatgrass

The health benefits of wheatgrass juice are many, as frequent drinkers will attest. You may have seen enthusiasts “taking shots” of wheatgrass at your local juice bar or smoothie joint!

Two ounces of wheatgrass juice contains the vitamins and minerals equivalent to 3 pounds of organic vegetables, and is especially high in magnesium, potassium, and calcium.

Wheatgrass juice is approximately 70% living chlorophyll, making it one of the best ingestible sources of chlorophyll available. Chlorophyll oxygenates the blood and organ tissue, impedes the growth of harmful bacteria in the digestive tract, neutralizes toxins and helps purify the liver.

Wheatgrass improves digestion and relieves constipation.

Wheatgrass rebuilds red blood cell count, naturally regulates blood pressure, and helps regulate blood sugar.

Wheatgrass juice acts as a safe agent for internal cleansing, possessing powers of detoxification more than ten times superior even to long-time detox favorites like carrot juice.

Wheatgrass helps heal infection, scarring, ulcers, and sores, on the skin, in the mouth, and internally.
