What are the benefits of wheat grass?


What is this mini shot that Lisa refers to as "liquid gold"? It is often said that taking a quick a shot of wheat grass is like consuming two pounds of produce nutrients. Indeed, with its earthy flavor we often call "sweet dirt" here at Alkalicious, wheatgrass a superfood that is very dense in nutrients and antioxidants. Wheat grass is high in chlorophyll and many vitamins, minerals and amino acids. It's antioxidant content may actually prevent oxidative stress and cell damage. This is one reason wheat grass is considered an immune booster.


Looking for a natural energy boost? You found it in this little easy shot! (Want a little more energy- ask for a little moringa in it!) Wheat grass is also touted to suppress appetite and can meanwhile help boost your metabolism. Because it helps to raise your body pH- a goal we encourage for all our clients- regular wheat grass shots can help with reducing inflammation and eliminating toxins from the body. This can help with recovery after a workout.


A very important benefit of wheat grass is its ability to help fight mucus and candida overgrowth- you know- the stuff that causes your intense cravings for sweets as well as leads to a variety of uncomfortable digestive disturbances, including irritable bowel symdrome and Crohn's disease. Known to be a natural blood cleanser, wheat grass can help to lower your blood pressure and cholesterol.
