Wheat Grass is next. We love this small yet potent ingredient as a substitute for coffee or the energy drink that lasts
five hours. Wheat grass is chalk full of health benefits such as helping regulate blood sugar and detoxifying the liver. Here are the top 5 reasons why we love wheatgrass and consider it a vital ingredient to a health and wellness plan.
1. Improper digestion can be toxic! Wheatgrass is high in Magnesium and therefore great at
fighting constipation as well as improving fertility.
2. Think better! Wheatgrass juice is high in oxygen which is great for brain and body tissue function.
3. Cleanse the body! The Chlorophyll found in wheatgrass benefits those with blood sugar problems and Anemia. It also neutralizes toxins and assists in purifying the liver.
4. Wheat grass keeps you going! Wheatgrass contains over 100 elements and enzymes needed by the human body for normal function.
5. Wheatgrass benefits those with blood pressure problems and other sorts of blood disorders.
There are many other documented benefits of wheatgrass, all of which lead to improved health, strength, and endurance. We know your health is important to you, it’s important to us! Add wheatgrass to your diet as an immediate way to give your health a boost. Most people experience some sort of benefit right away. Check out your local health food store: New Leaf, Whole Foods Market, or Staff of Life.
You can even juice the wheatgrass yourself. If you’re looking for a juicer, it’s recommended to use a masticating vs. a centrifugal because they smash the grass instead of shredding it and there’s also no heat build up. I recommend the cheaper, hand-cranked ones. Affordable and a good morning work out 🙂 ….
