wheatgrass benefits

Hi everyone! Even though I have a tab for wheatgrass benefits on my site I thought it prudent to blog some benefits today as a reminder. One Shot of Wheatgrass Juice

* One ounce contains 103 vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
* One ounce of wheatgrass juice represents as much nutritional value as approximately 2.5 pounds of fresh green vegetables.
* Wheatgrass juice is high in chlorophyll.
* It is very high in vitamins A, B-Complex, C, E and K.
* Wheatgrass juice is a natural source of laetrile (B-17).
* It contains beta-carotene, which is found in red, green and yellow pigmented fruits and vegetables. Beta-carotene acts as a scavenger against harmful molecules flowing naturally through the body or through toxins inhaled from cigarette smoke, air pollution and other damaging sources.
* Wheatgrass cleanses, purifies and feeds the body by activating the white blood cells, which boost the body’s immune system.

    Hi, I truly believe in the benefits of wheatgrass juice, but, I just had my first shot and although it tasted almost minty at first, the rest of the taste was so grassy I really thought I might not be able to keep this up. I had no trouble growing it for the first time and it did seem somewhat taller than pictures I have seen, before it began to split off. Is it supposed to taste that way? And, are there any suggestions to make it more palatable? I followed it with ice tea and buttered saltines to settle my stomach and I can still taste it. thanks and good luck with your juice bar. Wish we had one!

      Hello prairiesun. I’m assuming the grass you drank was the grass you grew. First I use the best organic seeds money can buy in my opinion. I use miracle grow organic soil. Try using a little grapefruit extract to cut down on possible mold. A chaser could be a shot or 2 of apple cider. I drink about 4 ounces of WG per day and I wait about 15 minutes then drink the cider or something organic and sweet. Works every time. Your grass is going to turn out fine. Finally, the worse it tastes the more I need it so keep that in mind. Hopes this helps.
