It has been around since the early 1960’s. When it first came onto the scene, it was discussed with great passion. Good or bad, healthy or unhealthy or is it yet again another fad? When all the dust settled, it was agreed that wheat grass is one of the super foods known to humans and a lot of people have adapted to consume this wonder food on a daily basis.

 

First of all, it has an extremely high nutrient content. The high levels of chlorophyll (the basis of all plant life) in the juice will increase the haemoglobin production which in turn will increase the capability of the blood to carry oxygen around the body. Scientists have discovered that the chlorophyll molecule is almost identical than the haemoglobin molecule. The difference between the two is magnesium in chlorophyll and iron in haemoglobin and this is why chlorophyll can so easily be changed into haemoglobin to increase the red blood cell count in the body. In other words, more oxygen can be transported through the blood. What does this mean for me? First of all it will reduce anemia due to the high red blood count that will be restored to your bloodstream. It purifies the blood of all the nasty stuff we put into our bodies on a daily basis, which will lead to improve blood sugar disorders, clean the blood of heavy toxins that sometimes travel in our body’s internal highways and will normalize blood pressure. The neat trick about wheat grass is because of the higher oxygen levels it will actually promote a higher metabolism, something all our fitness junkies out there are looking for. Maybe this is the magic bullet we were all waiting for. Because of the high oxygen level in the blood, our brains will function more effectively and we will be more alert.

 

You would only need about 55 grams of wheatgrass to equal about 1.3 kilograms of green vegetables including all their vitamin and mineral contents. The energy benefits of this small amount of wheat grass is equivalent to 2 cups of coffee, all the energy and none of the caffeine effects on your body and you will feel energized throughout the whole day!

 

Wheat grass juice is also a terrific skins cleanser. It is absorbed through the skin for nutrition. If you want to give it a try, just pour the juice over your body when you are in a bath of warm water. Soak for 15 minutes and rinse yourself off with cold water. It sounds a bit daunting, but give it a try one Friday night when you are home alone and have nothing to do. You might just be pleasantly surprised.

 

Because wheat grass is high in magnesium it is an excellent source to relieve constipation. This is much more naturally than the over the counter medicine that we keep getting. There are other ways to relieve constipation like eating healthy helpings of fruit and vegetables every day, but wheat grass will initially push you in the right direction.

 

Wheat grass juice is anti-bacterial, this means that it will stop the growth of unwanted bacteria in our systems.

 

Those of you out there that suffers from sinus infections, good news! It is said that chlorophyll will effectively clear up your sinuses due to the drying effect it has. The regular ingestion of wheat grass juice will help fight off and maybe eliminate colds.

 

There are so many other benefits of wheat grass juice. What are you waiting for? Go ahead and make it part of your daily routine. Juice yourself up with something healthy for a change.
