Wheatgrass - Research Article Summaries


Based on comprehensive scientific evidence and my own numerous clinical observations (>40,000) since 1995, wheatgrass and other cereal grasses appear to be capable of stimulating the activity of human growth factors. This process appears to facilitate natural healing processes such as hemostasis and hemolysis, wound, soft tissue and fracture healing, inflammation, various skin disorders and immune stimulation/modulation.

The healing effects of wheatgrass are frequently attributed to chlorophyll, but I believe this hypothesis has little or no substance. The wheatgrass extract I use contains no chlorophyll, yet has a similar therapeutic profile as observed and recorded in numerous laboratory and clinical studies performed since the 1930's. There are clearly (?many) other biologically active factors at work.

These posts consist of summaries of research articles relating to wheatgrass and other cereal grasses dating from the 1930's until the present day.
