Improve Your Health With Wheatgrass Powder

Wheatgrass powder is a great food supplement without harmful components, but with many, many beneficial nutrients and properties. In some countries, wheat is the most commonly used grain. As a grain, wheat has vitamins, minerals, and protein, as well as other important nutrients. It is a beneficial and versatile source of complex carbohydrates. Many people are familiar with wheat as a grain, but are unfamiliar, or at least less familiar with wheat grass. Wheatgrass is grown from the same seeds as grain wheat, just harvested much earlier in its short, green grass stage rather than waiting until the plant has gone to seed.


The nutrient content of wheatgrass is not the same as wheat grain. While wheat grain has many beneficial nutrients, wheatgrass seems to be a more concentrated source of many nutrients. To have the maximum nutrient content, wheatgrass is harvested at the “jointing stage” which is usually about 6-10 days in indoor or tropical climates. At this stage, it is at its peak content of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, dietary fiber, amino acids, chlorophyll, and other beneficial nutrients.


Wheatgrass can be dehydrated and made into wheatgrass powder. As a powder, it is easy to add to smoothies, yogurt, other soft foods or simply made into capsules and taken as a pill. It is considered a complete food, containing proteins, carbohydrates, and fat, as well as the vitamins A, B, C, and E. It also contains the minerals calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, iron, zinc, selenium, iodine, manganese, sulfur phosphorous, and copper. In addition to carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals, it also contains many beneficial enzymes and antioxidants. Among these enzymes are leucine, lycine, tryptophan, valine, methionine, alanine, and tyrosine.


Because of the vast and unique combination of nutrients it contains, wheatgrass benefits the human body in many ways. With its dietary fiber, it helps to control cholesterol levels as well as blood sugar levels. It aids in blood detoxification, strengthens the immune system, keep the body’s pH at optimal levels and helps increase red blood cell count in the blood. It is helpful in combating different forms of anemia, and improves the reproductive health of both women and men. It is an effective aid for weight loss, and can help combat arthritis, ulcers, and hemorrhoids. It helps improve skin tone and overcome skin disorders, as well as helping to improve muscle tone. It may also be helpful in combating leukemia, and other types of blood or digestive cancers.
