There are many amazing benefits of wheatgrass juice, but here’s my top three favorites:
Wheatgrass is loaded with chlorophyll like all green plants, making it an oxygen rich drink. Since your body needs oxygen to function, you can easily add wheatgrass juice as one of your favorite super healing drinks. So grab a shot of wheatgrass juice, pump up your red blood cells and significantly increase oxygen utilization by your body
Chlorophyll has the power to rebuild and cleanse your body at the molecular and cellular level. Wheatgrass juice is a powerhouse to help cleanse the body while promoting the health of your detoxification systems, immune system, digestive system and circulation. When you improve these systems, your body can naturally fight infection and heal wounds.
Dr. Bernard Jensen states that it only takes MINUTES to digest wheatgrass juice and using very little body energy! Digesting food, especially the typical American diet, takes a great deal of energy. Dian Dooley, Associate Professor of Food Science and Human Nutrition at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, stated it takes up to three days to fully digest a hamburger! So build up your immune system with the amazing benefits of wheatgrass juice and give your digestive track a little break!
