Health Benefits of Wheatgrass
Natural Detox & Cleanse: Wheatgrass powder is loaded with chlorophyll, a natural detoxifying agent that rids the body of heavy metals, synthetic chemicals, and other toxins. Chlorophyll is also believed to help clean and maintain healthy blood.
Restores pH Levels: Many of the foods consumed in Western diet are highly acidic, especially processed foods. Wheatgrass is highly alkaline which helps balance pH levels in the body. Studies indicate that consuming alkaline foods may also benefit cardiovascular health and brain function.
Immunity-Boosting: Wheatgrass powder is a rich source of beta-carotene, a plant-based compound that converts to vitamin A inside the body. Vitamin A is a powerful antioxidant that protects our cells against damage by free radicals and supports our natural defense system against illness.
Lower Cholesterol Levels: According to a 2011 study from Acta Poloniae Pharmaceutica, wheatgrass helped reduce total cholesterol, LDL ("bad") cholesterol, and triglyceride levels in mice with abnormally high cholesterol.
Reduce Complications of Chemotherapy: Research released in the journal Nutrition and Cancer in 2007 demonstrated that wheatgrass juice may reduce negative side effects associated with chemotherapy in breast cancer patients, without reducing the effectiveness of treatment.
