What's the big deal about wheatgrass juice?
There are a few ways of getting wheat grass juice, a couple of extracting it, and many to drink it. At Loop Juice we press wheatgrass and serve it in 1,2, or 3 oz shots with a slice of chaser like orange or pineapple. Even then, this earthy tasting plant has strong sweet and grassy flavors and some people may simply dislike it. For this very reason, we love to extract other vegetables such as ginger and fruits such as lemons and combine them all together, finishing it with a touch of turmeric or cayenne pepper.
Still don't dig it ?! Other ways of consuming this potent plant include mixing it with freshly extracted vegetable juices, pouring over blended smoothies, over ice with some water and lemon, as a water with chia seeds and cayenne....well, we know many ways of drinking whaeatgrass.
If you are interested in learning more about wheatgrass and checking on what scientists have to say about it, refer to the source I found on Google Scholar. It is a very thorough and long paper, but it is definitely worth to read through some of its sections. If you are not all about the molecular nutrition or simply do not have time, these are the reasons why you should have a shot of wheatgrass every now and then:
- 70% living chlorophyll, an essential blood builder
- Prevents growth of unfriendly bacteria and removes toxins
- Contains over 100 elements and minerals needed by man
- Purifies the liver and kidneys
