Have you ever had the pleasure of drinking this dark green concoction called wheat grass?
If you ask most people they will not give you very good feedback in terms of what it tastes like. Some will say that it tastes like dirt and that’s a nice ways of putting it…
However, despite the pungent taste this is one super supplement that we need to be aware of for a variety of reasons.
For one, the vast majority of us are not getting enough fruits and vegetables in our diet. The gold-standard is 10 servings of fruits and vegetables but most of us are nowhere near that…
We know from research that when we are consuming enough of these it has been shown to...
Reduce Heart Disease, Osteoporosis, Obesity, Stroke, and Many Others Diseases!
Wheat grass and other greens supplements provide us with a way to boost the number of vegetable servings we are getting each day.
There is even more to what wheat grass offers us though
For one it provides alkalinity to the body – this is a topic in itself but this is incredibly important for bone density, increasing muscle mass, general health, and weight-loss!
Minerals: It is said that there are 102 minerals in the soil and wheatgrass absorbs 92 of them! These include magnesium, potassium, sodium, iron, and calcium.
Vitamin A – important for bone development and eyesight
Vitamin B – important for the nervous system and digestive system, also for brain health
Vitamin C – important for skin, gums, teeth, muscles, joints
Vitamin E – heart and reproductive health
It also has over 17 different amino acids!
You can find this supplement at most health food stores. In terms of drinking it you may find at first it’s easiest to just throw into a protein shake.
Try to drink 1-4 ounces per day. Alternatives to this include the supplement greens plus berry blend (personal favorite). It offers similar benefits but is not quite as strong for flavor.
Give this a try and see how it impacts energy, levels, vitality, and general wellbeing.
