Wheatgrass is, as its name states, part of the wheat family. Although it is a wheat product, it is actually gluten-free. This is because the grass has already emerged from the seed grains into tender, green shoots. Sprouted wheatgrass no longer contains allergen agents such as gluten and is therefore safe for those with gluten sensitivities and celiac disease to consume. Wheatgrass is generally consumed fresh, often pressed into juice, allowing the energy-boosting vital nutrients to be absorbed immediately by your body. This fresh green grass is packed with nutrients and beneficial benefits for your body, especially for detoxification.
Wheatgrass is considered a superfood - loaded with vitamins and minerals; it can help purify the body, removing toxins, heavy metals and cancer-causing agents from the liver and bloodstream. The chlorophyll and other nutrients found in wheatgrass help reduce cell-damaging free radicals in the body. The damaging free radical molecules make it difficult for your body to repair itself and can cause organ degeneration and signs of aging. Wheatgrass also works with your kidneys and liver to cleanse toxins from your body. Sometimes, your food can actually contaminate your body - and that's why you need to detox. The vitamins and nutrients it contains assist with the extraction of toxins and boosts your gut's ability to extract nutrients from the food you eat.
