Wheatgrass aids in cleansing the blood, increases the function of the heart, aids in the digestion of food, supports immunity and provides the body with 17 amino acids and 5 important minerals. The body uses the amino acids to build muscle tissue, repair cells and for clotting blood.
One of wheatgrass' most important properties is that it contains hundreds of enzymes that help to increase the natural and healthful flora in our digestion system. Enzymes help us to break down and digest foods that we consume. Because our bodies are only able to produce and store a certain amount of these digestive enzymes, we need to consume foods like wheatgrass to replenish our digestive system.
