Wheatgrass for a Healthy Living

…..a guest post, by Jenny Travens of SuperFoodsLiving.com

The growing popularity of wheatgrass in recent times signifies a greater than before confidence in the wonder-wheat plant.  The nutrient-rich food offers enormous health benefits which contribute toward its wide-spread usage and marked visibility across varied demographics.

The availability of wheatgrass, some time ago, was in a tight spot, but not now. Its advent to human health and fitness has largely driven manufacturers to ensure it is easily available, and in a variety of forms, via different sales channels.

Physical shops, online stores, fitness clubs, bars and cafés all have wheatgrass products in their stands.

Originally from southwest Asia, and grown from multiple forms of natural wheat, civilizations have used it for ages, promoting vitality and all-round wellbeing.

Wheatgrass is easy to grow and can be used in various forms. Markets are flooded with wheatgrass products, powders and tablets. Having a long shelf life, these varieties are handy for long-term use.

From detoxifying the body, to aiding your dental problems, as an antiseptic or treating skin and hair issues, wheatgrass is holistically used to treat and cure day-to-day and even long-persisting disorders.

Not to just elaborate on its medicinal side, wheatgrass is also a household name for making wonderful food and drink recipes that can be easily prepared using Wheatgrass juicers.

With numerous properties, wheatgrass is up there in the list of superfoods. Let’s take a look at this amazing infographic to know more –

Interesting Post – I've used wheatgrass of and on for a while. I've never used on a regular basis though. But I've heard wonders. Do you recommend taking a shot of wheatgrass juice on a daily basis or should it be more like once a week? Thanks!

Hey Adam,

I’m in the same boat as you, haven’t tried it, note this is a guest post from a wellness collaborator of mine.

Jump over to SuperfoodLiving.com, and ask Jenny Travens the same question, she is much more knowledgeable than me.

…but  keep hearing so much about wheatgrass, it thinks it’s time for me to take the plunge
