The Incredible Health Benefits of Wheatgrass

 

In an ideal world a wheatgrass shot (or two) should be part of everyone’s morning routine. It’s a bold statement, but ask any nutritionist and they’ll tell you that by ingesting the nutrients equivalent to 1kg of greens in one small drink, you’ll be treating yourself to one of the most potent (and accessible) purifiers known to man. Some health experts go as far as to say that if the NHS were to offer daily wheatgrass free (remember free milk?), it would have such a profound effect on the nation’s underlying health that the seemingly unstoppable rise in health care costs would actually reverse. So just what exactly is wheatgrass? And why is it fast becoming one of the most talked about health foods on the planet? A wheatgrass shot is the juice extracted from sprouting wheat, i.e when it’s just a few days old. When juiced, wheatgrass is a fantastically powerful, raw, living superfood, containing over 100 easily-absorbed nutrients and packed full of vitamins, minerals, amino-acids and over 80 enzymes. And as if that wasn’t enough, it is also one of the richest sources of chlorophyll on the planet! It’s this chlorophyll (the green pigment) that hosts most of the nutrition. Taking wheatgrass regularly can help you:

  • Develop a healthy immune system
  • Improve skin, hair and nails
  • Decrease bodily odours
  • Reduce tooth decay
  • Keep you regular
  • Neutralise toxins
  • Detoxify the digestive tract and support intestinal health
  • Optimise a healthy circulatory system
  • Lose weight
