“Wheatgrass restores alkalinity to the blood. The juice’s abundance of alkaline minerals helps reduce over-acidity in the blood and thus also is a powerful detoxifier, and liver protector. It increases red blood-cell count and lowers blood pressure. It also cleanses the organs and gastrointestinal tract of debris. Wheatgrass stimulates the metabolism and the body’s enzyme systems by enriching the blood. It also aids in reducing blood pressure by dilating the blood pathways throughout the body. Pound for pound, wheatgrass is more than twenty times denser in nutrients than other choice vegetables. Nutritionally, wheatgrass is a complete food that contains 98 of the 102 earth elements.” (Taken from eatlocalgrown.com)
This stuff is quite amazing for your overall health. It seems like a miracle food and it is! There are many ways to include wheatgrass into your diet. I do not have a wheatgrass juicer so I purchased some organic wheatgrass supplements. It comes in the form of pills or powder that you can mix into drinks. These versions are very close to the real juice if you cannot get it.
My main mission is to get my energy up and from what I have read from the reviews, that should happen almost instantly. I am giving it a shot as well for energy and just overall wellness.

I have juiced wheatgrass with my Breville juicer and I actually got some juice out of it. I juiced about a handful and ended up with 1 shot glass of wheatgrass. It seems a little wasteful but I did have a ton of energy from it.
Please comment below on how you prefer to get your wheatgrass and what benefits you feel from it.
