What Is Wheatgrass?
Wheatgrass is a type of grass that can be juiced and drunk straight (intense) or added to juice and smoothies. Wheatgrass that is certified organic produces very high concentrations of chlorophyll, enzymes and vitamins. Wheatgrass is a plant that has the nutrient profile similar to that of other leafy green vegetables and contains vitamins A, B complex, C and E, trace elements calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium, enzymes and amino acids. As an antioxidant, organic wheatgrass can boost the immune system and scavenge free radicals. Organic wheatgrass has been shown to be a powerful body detoxifier. Its high chlorophyll content cleanses the liver, tissues and cells and purifies the blood. Organic wheatgrass also contains folic acid, iron, and vitamin B-12, which are required for proper red blood cell production.
