I was very much intrigued with the sprout of health drinks in the market. I see ampalaya ( bitter gourd ) shakes, barley drinks that my friend Dee‘s mom religiously prepares for her kids in the morning, and the latest recommendation of Dee to me, wheatgrass.
Reading up on wheatgrass piqued my curiosity big time. Wheatgrass happens to be the young grass shoots of wheatberry, that contains high concentrations of chlorophyll, active enzymes, amino acids, vitamins, etc. Wheatgrass has a rich concentration of chlorophyll that gives the body more oxygen, and boasts of so much benefits, according to Fat Free Kitchen,
* Wheatgrass energizes and reduces fatigue.
* It is a appetite suppressant.
* Wheatgrass juice improves metabolism.
* It improves digestion.
* Wheatgrass juice enriches the blood, removes blood disorders, & lowers blood pressure
* Wheatgrass juice is antibacterial and helps cleanse the liver
* It prevents tooth decay
* It is good for skin problems and improves complexion, treats acne, and removes acne scars.
* Wheatgrass juice keeps hair from graying & removes dandruff.
* It boosts the immune system, calms the nervous system and promotes regularity & helps fight constipation.
* The chlorophyll present in wheatgrass will wash drug deposits from the body, neutralize toxins in the body, help purify the liver, and prevent ageing. The chlorophyll also stabilises blood sugar levels.
I’ve also read from various websites that wheatgrass neutralizes body odor, bad breath, regularize bowel movement, and even give an insomniac a good night’s sleep. I’ve also read from various forums that wheatgrass helped alleviate their back pain. Goodness, just too much benefits that it just sounds too good to be true! But with the promising results, I was very much enticed, no, I caved into temptation and tried wheatgrass!
