ABC’s Of Juicing Wheatgrass: Benefits Of Wheatgrass

First let me say there are a lot of websites out there with an abundance of information on the benefits of juicing wheatgrass. A lot of them are only claims. That said, let me assure you of this fact: There are many good things that come from juicing wheatgrass and at the end of this article you’ll find some excellent resources.

What’s more nutritious than juicing wheatgrass? Not much! Wheatgrass juice is one of the most potently healthy drinks you can put in your body. It has been dubbed “a complete food” by health practitioners for its seemingly limitless health benefits.

It’s packed with over 90 minerals, including high concentrations of potassium, calcium, sodium, chlorophyll, and magnesium. Wheatgrass is also one of the best plant sources for protein, even better than soy and legumes.

There are 19 amino acids in wheatgrass and amazingly, it contains twice the vitamin A as carrots, vitamin B12  and more Vitamin C than oranges( ABC’s, get it?). I’ve seen it stated in many ways, but a shot of fresh wheatgrass juice contains the nutritional equivalent of 1 kg of leafy green vegetables! How great is that!

There are many claims that wheatgrass juice is a powerful detoxifier, and liver and blood protector. It’s said that it detoxifies the liver and bloodstream, and chemically neutralizes environmental pollutants.

According to one website, wheatgrass juice  “helps to fight tumors and it also neutralizes toxins. Recent studies show that wheatgrass has a powerful ability to fight tumors without the usual toxicity of drugs that also inhibit cell-destroying agents. The many active compounds found in wheatgrass juice cleanse the blood and neutralize and digest toxins in our cells.”  Whoa! That’s Awesome! I want some of that!

I’ve experimented with juicing wheatgrass and can tell you from my experience  it certainly gives me a boost of energy when I drink it.  Since I know it’s packed with nutrients, I know it’s good for my body. All things in moderation though. I’ll post more on juicing wheatgrass in the weeks ahead.

What have you heard about the benefits of juicing wheatgrass? Have you tried it or are you afraid to try it? Thanks for reading and happy juicing!

    This is the most adventurous green juice I have ever seen. Most are fruit and vegetable based, this is the only grass. I love to experiment so I will dig into this.

    Just learned I have esophageal cancer so started making and drinking wheat grass to combat the tumor. What other veggies can I juice with it without diluting the effectiveness of the wheat grass juice. Tried it mixed with red cabbage, carrot and baby spinach and it tasted awesome. Should I or should I not mix it and if so, what veggies should I use?

    I love juicing, shall we say it is one way for me to enjoy the full benefits and nutrients of certain fruit or vegetables. I personally experience the good benefit of wheat grass, it deals with my cough and at the same time it somehow moisturize my skin or shall we say my skin is clearer.

  15. Kristen says:

    I agree.

    I absolutely love wheatgrass!

    Although, some people may say they cant stand the taste. But in my opinion, after you start drinking it a few days a week the taste seem to bad at all. In fact, it starts to actually taste good!

      Hi Kristen,
      Thanks for commenting and I agree wholeheartedly. I believe it really is good for the body and I like the energy boost it gives me. I’ve been juicing it non-stop and have found a couple of good ways to drink it in shots. I think my favorite is with a small wedge of lime, as I mentioned in another post. Also, 4 handfuls of wheatgrass and a half of lemon is excellent. I peel the lemon.

      Thanks again and best wishes to you and yours. Happy juicing!
