Wheatgrass juice may look like what you'd get if you put your lawn trimmings in a blender. But fans say it can strengthen the immune system, detoxify the body, and ward off disease. Folk medicine practitioners once used wheatgrass for everything from treating constipation to easing the pain of rheumatism.
What Is Wheatgrass?
Wheatgrass is the young grass of the wheat plant, Triticum aestivum. It grows in temperate regions throughout Europe and the United States and can live indoors or outdoors. Many people grow their own wheatgrass by putting wheat seeds in water and then harvesting the leaves.
Wheatgrass is a natural source of vitamins and minerals (a few of which are antioxidants) including:
- Vitamins A, E, and B-12
As a dietary supplement, add 2 level teaspoons to 8 oz. of water or juice. Stir vigorously or use a blender. Tomato or carrot juice is suggested. You may also add this to fruit smoothie blender drinks to increase the nutritional content.
