The Health Benefits of Wheatgrass
Dr. Ann Wigmore is one of the pioneers in discovering the vast health benefits of wheatgrass in healing the body. Wheatgrass is used to help the body heal itself in cases of disease, injury, toxification, etc. Some animals are observed to eat grasses when injured or ill, but not when in good health. Likewise, it is not natural for people to rely on wheatgrass juice for nutrition when healthy. However, wheatgrass has many uses. Besides ingesting the juice, it can be applied in poultices to injuries, or cosmetically to tighten skin, or add luster to hair. It is also used in conjunction with colon cleansing. The grass itself can be chewed rather than juiced, and trays of wheatgrass can be placed strategically to freshen the air in any room.
Wheatgrass juice is an excellent healer because it acts to produce an unfavorable environment for bacterial growth. The main ingredient is the “crude” chlorophyll. Wheatgrass, which is one of the best sources of liquid chlorophyll, neutralizes toxins in the body, reduces high blood pressure, improves blood sugar problem, helps with skin and eye health, helps detox and cleanse the colon and purify the liver, increases heart function, improves digestion, increases strength and endurance, and can even prevent tooth decay.
Wheatgrass also contains over 100 elements including: vitamins A, B, C, E and K and the minerals Calcium, Magnesium, Iron, Phosphorus, Potassium, Sodium, Sulphur, Cobalt, and Zinc.
