Health Pick: Wheat Grass

Wheat Grass, that grass that you see sitting on the counter at many juicing establishments. The first place I noticed this grass, was on the counter at Jamba Juice. It took me a while to warm up to Wheat Grass. I would walk up to counter and examine the Wheat Grass with my eyes very closely and watch the juicing process of it. I would hear people in line talking about how they would feel more energized after having a shot of it. I started to get an ounce shot, only when I felt really low in energy. I have been using Wheat Grass consistently for about three years now. 

I use the Amazing Grass Brand, it is 100% Organic. It is in a powdered form. It is best to refrigerate after opening to keep all the nutrients. There are many benefits of Wheat Grass, like cleansing and detoxing the body. It helps balance pH levels. Wheat Grass has natural antioxidants that repair damaged cells. It also gives your immune system a boost. 

I purchased my Wheat Grass at Whole Foods. It can also be found online and health food stores. The price ranges between $19.99- $25.00. One 8.5 ounce container will last for at least a month.  

There are many diseases that Wheat Grass has been used in treatment and prevention. These are Anemia, Cancer, Colitis, Diabetes,  High Blood Pressure and Wound Healing. It also removes drugs, metals and toxins. Above in the video, it provides more detailed information about nutrition and more benefits of Wheat Grass.
