What is Wheat Grass?

There is a big difference between wheat grass juice and ground up wheat grass. The juice is many times more beneficial than just wheat grass that has been dried and ground into a powder.

Wheat grass juice is made from the young grass of the wheat plant. It has an extremely high nutrient concentration that cannot be found in the mature wheat plant. Due to these high levels of necessary nutrients wheat grass extract is considered a super food.

The human GI tract is not capable of breaking down the cellulose in the wheat grass stalk. For maximum effectiveness, wheat grass must be juiced before it is dried. The nutrients in wheat grass juice are several times more concentrated than in raw grass.

The best wheat grass is processed so that all the water is extracted from the juice. All the antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, chlorophyll and live enzymes remain in the dried wheatgrass powder.

Wheat Grass Side Effects

Some individuals may experience side effects when first taking wheat grass supplements. As the body cleanses itself it releases toxins from the blood and body fat. You may experience a light skin rash, mild headaches, aching muscles and increased bowel movements. Most people will not experience any adverse side effects.

If you are gluten intolerant or allergic to wheat you can still take wheat grass that has been cut and processed before the wheat develops a head. Gluten is a part of the seed and not the wheat plant itself.

If you are concerned about possible wheat grass allergies, we recommend you consult with your doctor or health care provider before taking wheat grass supplements.

Wheat Grass Supplements

Wheat grass capsules or wheat grass powder are the two most common ways wheat grass is packaged. Some consumers prefer the powder because they have trouble swallowing pills or capsules. Wheat grass powder can be added to smoothies, sprinkled on salads or mixed in your favorite juice.

It is safe for pregnant or nursing mothers to take wheat grass supplements on a regular basis during and after pregnancy. Wheat grass supplements are also safe for children.
