Discover wheatgrass benefits for the body, skin, hair and scalp! It's green in color with a slight sweet taste. It’s grown from embryonic seeds of the Red Wheat Berry, a special strain of wheat. Wheatgrass is one of the most nutrient dense substances on Earth. It’s available as fresh produce, in powder concentrate, tablet, capsule and juice forms.
History traces wheatgrass back 5000 years, to ancient Egyptian times. It became popular in the USA around the 1940’s, after Charles F. Schnabel popularized the plant with experiments in previous years. Anne Wigmore, (founder of the Hippocrates Health Institute), was a strong advocate of wheatgrass consumption, as part of a raw food diet. Wheatgrass advocates endured criticism for years, since limited scientific evidence supports their claims of health benefits. Even through criticism, many health institutes still endorse wheatgrass advocates to this day.

Wheatgrass is gluten free, unlike wheat.
Wheatgrass can be mixed in smoothie or healthy juicing recipes. Drink it as a juice by itself. If you’re not used to drinking wheatgrass juice, begin slowly by drinking one ounce a day. It can make you nauseous if you drink too much at once. You may not want to drink it everyday and that's fine. Two to four ounces of wheatgrass juice, every other day, is sufficient. If you’re trying to combat a degenerative disease, then four to six ounces a day is plenty.
CAUTION! Wheatgrass is generally safe but it can have side effects including: hives, swollen throat, headaches and nausea. If you’re breast feeding or pregnant avoid wheatgrass or wheatgrass juice, until your medical health provider approves your use.
