Wheat Grass – the Facts

Posted by Carolyn Lees on

Discover the Health Benefits of Wheat Grass

You have probably heard friends talking about wheat grass capsules at some point during the last few years. Maybe you’ve overheard discussions at work or family friend currently taking one of the numerous forms of wheat grass but if you’re like a lot of people, you might still misunderstand wheat grass or the true healing power wheatgrass harnesses.

Wheat grass is basically the blades of grass from wheat grain. When the grain is planted it begins to develop shoots within 2-3 days. A few days after this the shoots develop into blades of dense green grass. In as little as 8-10 days the wheatgrass is ripe for processing, At this stage it is worth noting that although the wheatgrass already is abundant in large levels of nutrients it has not had the required time to develop complex carbohydrates which can be found in wheat grass grown over winter.

As soon as the wheatgrass has been harvested it is usually turned into numerous forms, which often include wheat grass powder (Usually made by drying and crushing the wheatgrass blades into an extremely fine powder) wheat grass capsules (simply the powdered wheatgrass filled into capsules for easy digestion) wheat grass tablets (again typically the powder cold pressed into tablet form) and wheat grass juice. (The wheat grass blades are put through a specialist wheatgrass juicer which grinds the juice from the wheat grass leaving essential nutrients intact.)

Most forms of wheat grass are packed with an abundance of health boosting properties, with a wide range of vitamins enzymes, minerals and amino acids. It also consists of at least 70% chlorophyll, which is extremely similar in its DNA make up to blood. This means our bodies can use the nutrients in wheatgrass extemely easily.

wheat grass has been around for a long time but it has only recently arrived in the united kingdom and it can now be found online and at many health food shops. It has been in use for many medical conditions and can be applied on the skin for external skin conditions like eczema and acne. Taken internally it can help purify the blood stream replenishing it with essential nutrients which are essential for optimum health.
