The Many Benefits of Wheatgrass Juice

Even though wheatgrass looks like nothing more than a simple grass, there are actually a lot of great benefits of wheatgrass. In fact, it is actually one of the most powerful natural detoxifying agents. It's actually been said that just 1 ounce of wheatgrass is equivalent in nutritional value to more than 2 pounds of leafy green vegetables. This is because it contains over 90 materials (i.e. calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium), essential enzymes and 19 different amino acids. With all of these great things in it, here are some of the great health benefits of wheatgrass juice!

Appetite Suppression

There are so many nutrients in wheatgrass that your body won't be hungry for other foods to help it compensate for a lack of vitamins or minerals. Just one shot of wheatgrass each morning while your stomach is still empty will help keep you from overeating.

Circulation Stimulation

Wheatgrass can increase how much oxygen there is in your blood, which will really help to stimulate your circulation. Besides drinking a little bit of wheatgrass on an empty stomach each morning, you should also use a cotton ball to swipe some across your face and neck. This will dilate the blood vessels there so that there's more circulation. Make sure to rinse it off before using a towel to pat your face dry.

Improved Digestion

The next time you're tempted to reach for some antacids to relieve either your heartburn or your indigestion, make sure that you have some wheatgrass in your diet each day instead. Thanks to its vitamin B, amino acids and enzymes it is a great way in which to improve digestion problems ranging from irritable bowel syndrome to ulcers. It will even cleanse your bowels of impacted matter and mucous.

Treating Arthritis

Doctors believe that wheatgrass is an effective treatment for arthritis. This is because it contains lots of chlorophyll, which is known to fight of inflammation like that which is associated with joint pain.

Reducing Fatigue

Whenever you're feeling fatigued it's because your body hasn't had enough rest and also has a weak immune system. Chlorophyll will help to increase the oxygen supply within your cells and tissues so that they can heal and regenerate. Once this happens, you will feel less fatigued.

Do Away With Bad Breath and Body Odor Too

You have a natural deodorizer whenever you consume wheatgrass on a regular basis. This is because its juices are able to wash toxins out of your mouth and away from your skin and body.

Treating Skin Wounds

As your cells are regenerated skin wounds can be enabled to heal quicker. All you have to do is use a cotton ball to dab some wheatgrass onto your skin, allow it to rest for a few minutes, then rinse it off and pat it dry with a towel.

Preventing Tooth Decay

Gargling with some wheatgrass for a few minutes will help to draw toxins out of your teeth. This is why you should use it in place of harsh mouthwash.

Cleansing the Liver

What wheatgrass is best known for is cleansing your liver. Since this is the organ that processes everything that your body ingests, it needs to be detoxified occasionally. Fortunately, wheatgrass is able to both restore and revitalize your liver.

Treating Sunburn

In the same way that wheatgrass can help with wounds, it can also help you heal from sunburn faster. Simply put some onto a cotton ball, put it on, allow it to sit for a few minutes then rinse off and pat dry with a towel.

Stabilizing Blood Sugar Levels 

Anyone who has diabetes should take some wheatgrass to help them stabilize their blood sugar levels. It works by improving both your glucose and your lipid levels.

Revitalizing the Skin

With wheatgrass your skin cells will regenerate, which is why it's beneficial for your facial complexion. Just 1 shot daily will help to get rid of acne, eczema and discoloration. You can also apply it directly to your face.

Preventing Cancer 

Thanks to the fact that it has detoxifying properties, it will keep your blood clean and oxygenated. It will also keep your red blood cell count high. Since cancer thrives in an environment that doesn't have a lot of oxygen, wheatgrass is beneficial in helping to prevent cancer.

Giving the Immune System a Boost

You'll be able to steer clear of colds because of the immunity boost that just 1 shot of wheatgrass per day will give you.

Conclusion 

These are just some of the many different benefits of wheatgrass. Of course, there are many others that exist as well but these are the important ones. They are also the ones that will give you enough of a desire to add some wheatgrass to your diet.
