Wheatgrass

Wheatgrass is essentially made up of the ‘leaf seedlings’ belonging to the common wheat plant.

Wheatgrass: Latin name: (Genus) Triticum; (Species) T. aestivum.

An excellent source of nutrients and minerals, Wheatgrass is said to be a complete food with many health benefits.

Indeed, grasses have excellent oxygenating and detoxifying effects and are full of chlorophyll, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants, and Wheatgrass is no exception.

Cleansing and revitalising, Wheatgrass used as a supplement to a healthy, balanced diet acts as an all-round tonic, and as such it is great for helping to:

  • boost energy levels and the immune system
  • eliminate toxins and purify the blood
  • improve blood sugar levels
  • lower blood pressure
  • reduce bad cholesterol

And generally aid cardiovascular health.

Wheatgrass is also said to improve digestion.
