Wheatgrass, when harvested at the early stage of growth, provides many valuable nutrients. Owing to them, it has a far-reaching, beneficial impact on the body. It is a source of vitamins (A, C, E and B vitamins), minerals (phosphorous, potassium, sodium, magnesium, selenium, zinc, iron and calcium) and enzymes (PYD1 and SOD).
Wheat grass contains also chlorophyll (even up to 70%) whose molecule is similar in structure to haemoglobin and thus encourages the production of erythrocytes, improves tissue oxygenation and influences beneficially overall cardiovascular function.
Due to the content of numerous bioactive ingredients, wheatgrass shows multiple effects – it supports digestive function (relieves constipation, nausea and bloating and helps cleanse the body), has a beneficial impact on skin quality (treats burns and improves skin regeneration), boosts antioxidant protection (prevents inflammation and slows down cells’ ageing) and helps lose excess weight.
Wheatgrass is recommended both for internal and external use. It is available in the form of juice, powder and capsules.
