“How do I love thee, Wheatgrass? Let me count the ways.” ~William Shakespeare, more or less.

What can wheatgrass juice do for you? For one thing, it can improve blood disorders, probably because there is only a slight difference between the hemoglobin molecule in the blood and the chlorophyll molecule in the plant. Hemoglobin has an iron atom in the middle, chlorophyll has a magnesium atom. Wheatgrass juice is 70% chlorophyll. That kind of makes sense, doesn’t it?

So, what else? Reduces high blood pressure, rejuvenates aging cells, gives instant energy, increases the red blood count (there’s that blood again), cleanses internal organs, cleanses the skin, and more.

An ounce or so in a glass of apple juice makes for a palatable and healthy drink. Some folks drink it by the shot but, like drinking shots of whiskey, that’s a little too much for me. As you’ll see in the video, wheatgrass juice is easy to make. I suggest using an electric juicer, but you can also use a manual one.

Next time I’ll show you how to grow wheatgrass indoors.
