Wheatgrass Benefits

Wheatgrass has been sold in the United States since around the 1930s, yet it’s truly started taking off and turning out to be much more well known in the previous quite a while, and can now be found at numerous juice-bars and sound way of life stores and eateries.

The credit for the late fame really began in the late ’50s and mid ’60s, when a lady by the name of Ann Wigmore found the recuperating advantages of living nourishments – especially wheatgrass – when she was determined to have disease and was without malignancy inside a year! Ann Wigmore lady truly changed the universe of eating a sound, plant-based, living-nourishments lifestyle…with wheatgrass being the zenith of her recuperating regimen. The customary admission of wheatgrass for its mending properties can absolutely be ascribed to her.

What is Wheatgrass?

Wheatgrass is the “child shape” of wheat as a great many people know it, in any case, there is no gluten in wheatgrass. In more conventional eating regimens, wheat is utilized just when it is completely develop and the seeds have totally shaped. Wheatgrass, then again, is newly grown and still green!

Like plants and vegetables, wheatgrass contains chlorophyll – it’s actually 70 percent chlorophyll – yowsa! It also contains 17 amino acids, is rich in protein, is packed with enzymes and phytonutrients, and delivers vitamins A, B-complex, C, E and K. Not too shabby!

So How Do I Take Wheatgrass?
Because of all the valuable nutrients and health benefits, wheatgrass is quickly becoming the powerful force it was meant to be. It is also a powerful way to assist you in getting the recommended 5 to 9 servings of vegetables (not that green juicing doesn’t do this as well!).

When taking fresh wheatgrass, it either has to be juiced or, if you are “brave”, chewed and spit out (masticated). This is because our bodies cannot digest grasses! Once you get on the regimen, your body will start to cleanse itself of the many toxins associated with everyday life.

It is suggested you drink it straight with no other liquid, but for many (me included) this can be a bit difficult. So, you can also take it slightly diluted with your favorite green juice or use green juice as a “chaser.” Wheatgrass can be pretty strong tasting and some of you may experience a little bit of nausea when starting a wheat grass regimen – don’t worry! Sometimes it still upsets my stomach a little bit, but this is normal, because the release of all those toxins is sure to cause a little bit of queasiness. This will generally pass with regular intake of the wheatgrass shots.

So, if you are doing fresh wheatgrass shots, ideally you will drink a 2-ounce shot in the morning on an empty stomach, and it is suggested to do the same in the afternoon.

If you are having any issues with fresh wheatgrass – whether getting the fresh stuff, or being able to drink it completely due to overwhelming nausea or other issues – simply try a good powdered form (these do not seem to cause nausea at all!).

Health Claims of Wheatgrass
In addition to the above nutritional info, wheatgrass is about the best source of chlorophyll you can find and is also a complete protein. Some of its health claims include cleanses and detoxifies the colon; reduces cholesterol, regulates blood sugar; reduces high blood pressure; increases hemoglobin production; enhances your immune system; and is potentially able to cure cancer!
