The Miraculous Benefits of Wheatgrass
While many people consume wheatgrass raw directly from the harvest, and some get benefits from chewing wheatgrass and taking in the juice then discarding the pulp, I enjoy wheatgrass through juicing. A handful of wheatgrass in your juicer will give you about 3-4 tablespoons of juice. I add this to juices or smoothies. By adding wheatgrass to your diet you can:
- Improve your complexion and cleanse the body
- Gain energy and strength
- Increase your metabolism
- Get the vitamins and minerals essential for optimum health
- More quickly heal various ailments and illnesses
