Monday, May 06, 2013
I cannot believe I have waited this long to try wheatgrass! It was great. I had a 1oz shot at my local juice bar.
Benefits of 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.
**Wheatgrass juice is also beneficial for people who need to lose weight or cleanse their bodies.
