Shout out to … Wheatgrass

I am a long-time believer/user of wheatgrass. The benefits of this grassy, green juice is certainly worth a “shout out.” Kicking back one ounce of wheatgrass juice actually has more nutritional benefits than eating 2 pounds of raw broccoli. And honestly – who has the time or inclination to do that??

Here are just a few good reasons to add wheatgrass juice to your weekly routine (3 or 4 times a week is advised). Fresh pressed wheatgrass juice ….

is an incredibly powerful natural detoxification agent.

helps improve the digestive system (big time).

stimulates and regenerates the liver.

helps to fight disease & infection with chlorophyll.

helps reduce stress and tension.

is helpful in anti-aging, such as reducing grey hairs.

helps in boosting energy levels.

assists in repairing the DNA system.

helps the body to heal wounds and fight illness faster.

promotes overall vitality to the human body.

Here in Atlanta, I get my wheatgrass shots from the nearby Whole Foods. Their “powershot” is the best way to jumpstart a week or even re-fuel after a big Saturday night.  It’s an ounce each of wheatgrass, lemon juice and freshly pressed ginger root. The lemon and ginger keep you from tasting the grass all day.

Convinced to give it a try?  Or are you already a wheatgrass fan, too?
