The Health Benefits of Wheatgrass
Dr. Ann Wigmore is one of the pioneers in discovering the vast health benefits of wheatgrass in healing the body. Wheatgrass is used to help the body heal itself in cases of disease, injury, toxification, etc. Some animals are observed to eat grasses when injured or ill, but not when in good health. Likewise, it is not natural for people to rely on wheatgrass juice for nutrition when healthy. However, wheatgrass has many uses. Besides ingesting the juice, it can be applied in poultices to injuries, or cosmetically to tighten skin, or add luster to hair. It is also used in conjunction with colon cleansing. The grass itself can be chewed rather than juiced, and trays of wheatgrass can be placed strategically to freshen the air in any room.
Wheatgrass also contains over 100 elements including: vitamins A, B, C, E and K and the minerals Calcium, Magnesium, Iron, Phosphorus, Potassium, Sodium, Sulphur, Cobalt, and Zinc.

I. What’s in Wheatgrass Juice?
Why should I drink wheatgrass juice?
Wheatgrass juice will provide you with more energy by fulfilling nurtitional deficencies and by removing wastes that clog your cells, blood, tissues and organs. I firmly believe that even so called “healthy” people can live their lives at an even higher level of energy and mental concentration. We have all read the horror stories concerning environmental hazards that our bodies are subjected to as a result of our highly developed industrial and technical lifestyles: all forms of pollution (air, water, sound, etc.); chemicals in our food and water; radiation given out by televisions, computers, and other high-tech machines; and so on. When the body is subjected to these hazards it loses its balance, resulting in loss of energy, inability to concentrate, and depression, not to mention other more devastating degenerative conditions. It has been scientifically shown that wheatgrass juice neutralizes these environmental toxins, allowing the body to balance itself and operate at maximum efficiency.
