"Wheatgrass" refers to the young sprouts that form soon after wheat seeds are planted. They are cut for juicing at about two weeks.
Thousands of websites tout the nutritional benefits of wheatgrass as its source of good health and wellbeing. This is simply not true.
What IS true however, is that wheatgrass contains numerous potent bioactive molecules that positively influence your immune system. They also increase the capacity of your blood-forming system to keep you well.
In turn, one enjoys improved protection from external disease-causing agents such as bacteria and viruses, and internally from cells that have the potential to cause harm. Wheatgrass is also highly effective as a healing agent, and as a natural anti-inflammatory.
These pages testify to the amazing variety of conditions that may respond to wheatgrass.
Essentially, the numerous health benefits of wheatgrass come down to the Grass Juice Factor, not, as many believe, to nutrition.
Everyone can benefit from wheatgrass in some way.
