30 days of health: day 2 - wheatgrass

Monday, May 06, 2013

One word:
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.

    Great stuff, I just recently got back on track with taking my wheat grass (tablets) which I grind into powder since I can't swallow the big pill. Its been only 2 days so far I do feel a difference I feel more alert (awake), not tried. I have experience the benefits first hand.. a few weeks ago I had a bad toothache swollen sore tender. I took my wheat grass the next day the pain was good, no longer tender and swelling was gone I could not believe it after that I said if I do nothing else I will have it daily in the morning immediately when I wake.

I would recommend everyone give it a try. thanks

    I have been juicing wheat grass for several months now. I miss it when I run out. Over time I have built up to drinking a cup a day.
