The Super Food of the World – The Benefits of Wheatgrass

Updated on December 30, 2010

The Super Food of the World – The Benefits of Wheatgrass

I first learned the benefits of Wheatgrass when I started to drink a vegetable drink called Green Vibrance. I’m not big on vegetables, but I knew I needed to eat more of them to stay healthy. Wheatgrass is one of the many ingredients in this powdered drink, including a host of other vegetables. I also drink another vegetable drink called Green Super Food by amazing Grass. It’s a chocolate flavored vegetable drink, with Wheatgrass being one of the ingredients. I absolutely swear by these two drinks and I swear by Wheatgrass as well.

I bought a container of powdered Wheatgrass by itself as well. I mix it in a smoothie every single morning. (Read my article on how to make a delicious vegetable smoothie, while getting a whole day’s servings of vegetables in just one glass.It includes Wheatgrass. CLICK HERE: The Live Long Time & Look Young Smoothie) You can purchase Wheatgrass juice, but I prefer the powder myself. You can also make your own wheatgrass juice, using a juicer. Whichever is your preference.

My health has never been bad, but Wheatgrass has definitely made a positive impact in my overall life. CAUTION: I don’t suggest drinking powdered Wheatgrass with just plain water. It tastes horrible, but the benefits are beyond amazing. Mix it with some juice, a smoothie or sprinkle it in some soup or whatever, but not with just plain water. Okay you’ve been warned.

So let’s take a look at all the benefits of this power super food and you’ll see why you should make Wheatgrass apart of your life. Below are 21 benefits of Wheatgrass, but just realize Wheatgrass has a lot more benefits than the below. These were my top 21 favorites when I researched this amazing power super food.

      Sounds like it's good for what ails ya. Looks like I may have to give some wheat grass a try. I seem to remember some celebrity like Tony Robbins pushing green drinks.

      I'm a big fan of barley grass, which has very similar benefits to wheat grass. It's always an ingredient of my vegetable juice, and I grow the barley grass myself. It definitely made a difference in my life!

      I drink Amazing Grass Chocolate Powder every day (for years), it gives an "amazing" energy boost without the jittery feeling coffee gives...but, although I agree with almost all the benefits you listed, unfortunately, it hasn't done a thing to boost my fertility or for slowing or reversing gray hair :(, I'm only 41 and my hair is almost completely white (the un-dyed roots I mean...totally not ready to let it go white, lol). But, with all the benefits it does deliver, I recommend it to everyone...I'm all in gray hair or not! :)

      Wheat grass drinks are indeed healthful. You will want to get the only one that includes the roots along with the leaves. It is milder in taste and more nutritious. Try a free sample at: www.bestorganicwheatgrass.com
