Quick Facts

Wheatgrass has been used for over 5000 years. Its origins can first be traced to Egytptian and Ayurvedic medicine. It has made its way to modernity through the agricultural chemist Dr. Charles Schnabel who experimented with grasses in the 1930s.

Dr. Schnabel used the fresh wheatgrass to nurse sick livestock back to health and found much success. The results of his experiments encouraged people to use wheatgrass for their own health benefit.

Wheatgrass is a flat, coarse, green grass that is a member of the wheat family. It grows 8-10 inches tall and has a mildly sweet, green, grass-like flavor. It is considered a superfood that contains iron, calcium, amino acids, and vitamins A, C, E, K, and B. Wheatgrass is said to help boost metabolism and the immune system, and aid in digestion.

Wheatgrass is primarily used in wellness shots, juices, and smoothies for a quick boost of vitamins and minerals. It can also be dried and powdered, then added as a supplement to any dish.

  • 50 grams wheatgrass stems

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Chop the grass stems into small pieces.
  • Pass the grass into the juice extractor and drink the juice immediately to enjoy all the beneficial nutrients of the plant
