Wheat Grass - Natural healthy food

I was discussing this with my colleague, who is also getting into the wheat grass world, on growing the grass at home.

Not many know that we can grow and have juice of wheat grass. Why suddenly wheat grass?

Yes, of late if you visit any restauarants of thematic nature, they serve you Wheat Grass juice? What is so special about it?

It has:
  • Chlorophyll,
  • beta carotene,
  • more than 80 minerals,
  • 18 amino acids
  • Vitamins - C, E, B12
  • Iron
  • Calcium

Research has shown that 1 kg of wheatgrass matches the nutritional value of 22 kg of ordinary garden vegetables.

Wheatgrass is generally consumed as juice which is a complete food with regenerative and protective qualities. Its regular use
  • improves perception and increases mental and emotional calmness.
  • aids in digestion,
  • prevents graying of hair,
  • prevents skin diseases,
  • prevents asthma, arthritis and diabetes
  • helps in detoxification of heavy metal from the body.
In fact, because of its blood purifying qualities, wheatgrass is used in the treatment of leukemia and some other forms of cancer.

The normal dosage of wheatgrass juice is 25 to 50 gm twice a day on an empty stomach. The average dosage taken by consumers of wheatgrass is 3.5 grams (powder or tablets).

Some also have a fresh-squeezed 30 ml shot once daily or for more therapeutic benefits a higher dose up to 2–4 oz (60 - 120 ml) taken 1-3 times per day on an empty stomach and before meals. For detoxification, some users may increase their intake to 3–4 times per day.

It can be extracted from wheatgrass in a juicer. One problem with the grass is that it cannot be stored and has to be consumed immediately.

You can chew the wheatgrass and discard the pulp.

Sounds interesting....yes...more interesting is that you need not have space to grow this grass. Let me tell you how to grow this grass in the next post. I have grown this in my apartment and it is very easy to maintain.

The above details are sourced from various websites relating to wheatgrass.
