Taking wheatgrass in powdered form might be simpler than juicing your own, as it’s easier to just pop in your smoothies, but of course the real deal would be better.
But we are after quickness here, and it’s still around 79 per cent as effective as the juice you could squeeze yourself.
Wheatgrass is an energizer for the mind and the body, and the vitality you gain from this is unbelievable. Two ounces of fresh juice equals three pounds of vegetables in vitamins and minerals!
Wheatgrass is super nutritious, containing 90 out of the 102 vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that you need in a day. High in vitamins A, B, C, E, and K as well as calcium, chlorine, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, sodium, sulphur, zinc, and 22 amino acids, it is safe to say it’s a good healthy choice!
It’s a whole meal and complete protein, high in enzymes and chlorophyll, which helps to build healthy blood, improves circulation, reduces toxicity, and stimulates healthy tissue cell growth.
Ann Wigmore was a very famous lady from Lithuania, who believed she healed her own body from cancer using wheatgrass juice and other raw vitamin and enzyme-enhancing foods in the 1950s.
She went on to live another 35 years of health and well-being and spent the rest of her life teaching and educating people on natural health and optimum healing. Her use of wheatgrass was a key dietary component in her own healing, and many people have claimed the same experiences since.
She maintained that it drained the lymphatic system, which carries many of the toxins out of the body cells, and when disease occurs, in the form of inflammation (arthritis, eczema, etc.) there is a natural build-up of mucus in the lymphatic system in that area.
Wheatgrass will break down the mucus and allow it to clear. It also supplies iron, which helps to cleanse the blood and prevent anaemia.
How much should you take?
1–2 teaspoons daily is good. Or 1–4 ounces if juicing.
The Yummy Factor
Tastes like grass! Not too bad if you are OK with grass! But very worth it for the excellent health benefits.
Taking too much can cause nausea, constipa- tion, and loss of appetite.
