Wheatgrass Health Benefits

Wheatgrass Health Benefits

Wheatgrass is a plant with many health benefits. According to the Hippocrates Health Institute, the plant nourishes the blood, lowers blood pressure, removes toxins from the body and stimulates metabolism. Used for decades by healthcare professionals, soldiers and laymen, the plant can be consumed as part of a detox program to reduce illness, manage weight and restore health. 

Wheatgrass contains the entire range of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and nutrients that your body requires.

It is estimated that one ounce of wheatgrass juice has the health equivalent of 2.5 lbs. of vegetables!
