WHEATGRASS FOR WELLNESS

By Dr. Sapna |

Wheatgrass is popping up everywhere especially in juice and smoothie bars and it’s popularity is due to the nutrient-richness this young grass packs.

Although no significant research studies support wheatgrass health claims it does contain a concentrated amount of nutrients such as:

  • iron
  • calcium
  • magnesium
  • chlorophyll
  • vitamins A, C, and E. 
  • Wheatgrass is also said to boost immunity and even help with joint pain and constipation.

Wheatgrass is available in many forms, including tablets, capsules, liquid extracts and tinctures. The best way to obtain the benefits from wheatgrass is to juice it from its source.

You can even grow your own wheatgrass at home! I’ll be posting a post later this week on how to juice wheatgrass!
