10 Reasons Wheatgrass Is Good For You

2009 May 8

Ewww…. What Are You Drinking?

I think it’s funny everytime I hear that when people look and act afraid of what Im drinking.

And they are only scurred because it’s a big glass and it’s full of a dark green juice.

When I tell them it is Wheatgrass and it’s GOOOOOOOD… I get all kinds of different responses.

Things like:

You are drinking grass? Let me taste it…

Ohh… I heard that was really good for you.

That looks nasty.

That’s all that’s in there is grass?

Whatever the response ends up being, it always leads to some kind of conversation about why it’s good for you and why I drink it all the time.

Well… here are 10 awesome reasons to be drinking this wonderful elixir Wheatgrass.

1. It is a LIFE-SUSTAINING Complete Food. Wheatgrass is a nutrient factory containing protein, complex carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and more than 80 enzymes.

2. It is RICH in Chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is a great internal detoxifier as well as a good support for better oxygenation of cells.

3. It is loaded with ANTI-OXIDANTS. Rich in vitamin C, as well as the enzyme SUper oxide dismutase, a highly potent neutralizer of very harmful free radical toxins.

4. It’s called as the KING of ALKALI FOODS. Wheatgrass is great at helping balance the pH of the body by neutralizing the growing acidity of your system.

5. It stimulates CELLULAR RENEWAL and REPAIR. A glycoprotein in wheatgrass called P4D1 has been found to stimulate the repair of damaged DNA.

6. It helps prevent Cancer formation. Study shows that chlorophyll can inhibit the activity of certain cancer causing agents, as well as, protect the body from the effects of carcinogens.

7. It assists in WOUND HEALING. Surgeon Dr. Benjamin Gurskin recommends this for its antiseptic effect on wounds. It helps deal with certain bacteria and neutralizes the foul odor of certain wounds as well as hasten healing.

8. It has ANTI-INFLAMMATORY benefits. Dr. Kubota of Tokyo found two glyco-proteins that alongside SOD to promote a potent anti-inflammatory effect better than aspirin.

9. It is rich in ABSCISIC ACID. Abscisic acid is a plant hormone that makes the immune system recognize cancer cells and kill them. It also helps prevent cancer cells from invading the body and metastasize.

10. It is PACKED with NUTRIENTS. Dr. Charles Schnabel discovered that 15 pounds of wheatgrass is equivalent to 300 lbs of the choicest vegetables.

And that my friends is why I drink wheatgrass all the time.

There are a myriad of places where you can purchase it.

If you are not already adding this into your diet…  Think about it…

To your health and well-being,

I recently started taking wheatgrass tablets regularly – would you say that they are just as beneficial as the fresh juice?

@JuiceGirl – I haven’t seen any tests or reports on it up to this point. I would say that it would depend upon the processing that the brand you are using goes through. I know that I get mine in a powdered, sealed packet that has studies on its efficacy. I’m sure regardless, you are getting most of the benefits of it.
