The Benefits Behind Wheat Grass Shots
Fri, 2016-08-26

Wheatgrass is the young shoot of the wheat plant that is edible green grass.

Considered as a superfood, it is primarily used as a concentrated source of nutrients.

You can find it in the form of juice, often called “wheatgrass shot” or prepared in the form of green powder.

Wheatgrass has many health benefits:

- It has a green color because it contains chlorophyll, some believe it helps fight cancer and arthritis.

- It is a natural liver cleanser and detoxifier that acts like an antioxidant to reduce free radical damage and can help give you a boost in energy.

- Wheatgrass is also a complete source of protein, supplying all of the essential amino acids.

- It boosts the immune system because of the vitamins it contains: vitamin C, E and A.

- If included regularly in one’s diet, it can lower total cholesterol and increase the HDL-cholesterol.

 

We mentioned, in one of the previous blogs, the alkalizing diet; wheatgrass is one of the best alkalizing food you can get.

Like any other superfood, you can easily add it to your favorite smoothie to gain all of its benefits.
