Wheatgrass contains a high amount of chlorophyll and this means that wheatgrass juice causes increased haemoglobin production in the human body. Haemoglobin is responsible for carrying oxygen around the body to the organs and therefore when the level of haemoglobin rises the person can feel an increase in energy and well-being. This also has a number of health benefits including the detoxification of the blood and in particular ridding the body of toxins such as carbon monoxide and other nasties that get into our systems from the pollution that is in the air around us.

The whole body will benefit from an increased level of oxygen in the body. For example the brain and other tissues work best when they are highly oxygenated.?On top of this the amount of minerals and vitamins that are present in a single serving of wheatgrass juice has been shown to be of a huge benefit to those who suffer from chronic skin conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis. It can also help to improve the condition of the hair and the scalp.

Other wheatgrass health benefits include:
·        Better digestion
·        Lower blood pressure
·        Helps to heal wounds after injury
·        Prevents the growth of harmful bacteria in the body.
·        Has been shown to slow down tooth decay
·        Helps to keep the skin looking youthful and hydrated.

Wheatgrass is considered by many to be a complete food in itself, and based on a direct comparison or nutrients per weight, one pound of fresh wheatgrass contains the same amount of vitamins as around 23 pounds of choice garden vegetables! This is truly amazing and you can see why so many people are so keen to have it in their diets. The best way to use the grass is to juice it (the new Angel juicer 8500 would be a great choice), alternatively, you can use it in green smoothies. A Vitamix blender/juicer will turn any vegetables into smooth puree you can drink.
Wheatgrass is even  considered by some to be a good alternative cancer therapy. Research has shown that regularly drinking wheatgrass juice helps to rejuvenate the red blood cells in the body and this then helps to fight against diseases and heal the body. While such radical claims are constantly plastered on new “health fad” products, very few natural treatments have been subjected to as much scrutiny as wheatgrass, let alone received as much praise from the medical community.
