Because wheatgrass is full of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, chlorophyll and pure liquid energy that are beneficial to a healthy lifestyle many people are now consuming it on a regular basis.
Wheatgrass is known to help clean your bloodstream, burn fat, boost your immune system, gives you immediate energy, aid in digestion, cleanse your skin, and reduce premature aging.
Wheatgrass juice is an abundant source of the B vitamins and includes vitamins C, E, K, folic acid and carotene. These vitamins work to successfully destroy free radicals that can lead to the degeneration of the immune system, and the body as a whole.
It also contains 23 essential and non-essential amino acids, as well as various minerals and enzymes. There are over 90 minerals, which are needed to maintain good metabolism. These minerals also have an alkalizing effect on the blood which maintains healthy bones and teeth, and promotes immunity from colds and illness. Some of these minerals found in wheatgrass are calcium, magnesium, phytonutrients, potassium, selenium, iron and other powerful antioxidants to neutralize free radicals.
Wheatgrass also contains a large amount of chlorophyll. In fact wheatgrass is 70% chlorophyll. The significance of chlorophyll is that it is similar in structure to Hemoglobin, which in turn plays a vital part in the function of red blood cells in the human body. It has a remarkable blood cleansing and building ability that delivers fresh oxygenated blood to our bodies’ circulatory system. When chlorophyll is taken internally (wheatgrass juice), it reduces or eliminates body and breath odors. However, the only way to release the nutrients contained in wheatgrass to a digestible form is by juicing. In fact evidence shows that one ounce of wheatgrass juice contains equivalent levels of minerals, vitamins and enzymes that would be contained in 2 ½ pounds of any other green vegetables.
