The Health Benefits of Wheatgrass
Green juice powerhouse
Few plants are as highly associated with health as wheatgrass.
Wheatgrass provides a concentrated amount of nutrients, including iron, calcium, magnesium, amino acids, chlorophyll, and vitamins A, C and E.
Wheatgrass fans say that its rich nutrient content boosts immunity, kills harmful bacteria in your digestive system, and rids your body of waste. Some proponents tout wheatgrass for cancer, anemia, diabetes, constipation, infections, skin conditions, colon cleansing, ulcerative colitis and joint pain, among other health concerns.
The benefits of wheatgrass come from the raw plant. Since the plant itself is indigestible, juicing is the most common way of taking wheat grass.
There are few scientific studies documenting the benefits of wheatgrass, but proponents are steadfast in their support of the green juice.
