Wheatgrass is abundant in many important vitamins and minerals including vitamins A, E, C K, and B6, calcium, selenium, magnesium, and iron. Because wheatgrass takes a long time for our bodies to digest, it is usually dried made into tablets or put into capsules.¹
Wheatgrass contains chlorophyll which has antioxidant functioning due to the vitamin C it contains, meaning it can neutralize free radicals that cause the inflammation that leads to disease.² Supplementation with wheatgrass reduces oxidative stress due to its glutathione content. Glutathione is another antioxidant that prevents oxidative damage to your body’s cells.³
Another exciting benefit of wheatgrass is the possibility to lower blood cholesterol levels. In a study of rats with high cholesterol, LDL (bad) cholesterol was lowered in rats given wheatgrass juice by amounts comparable to those of the rats treated with the cholesterol-reducing drug, atorvastatin.⁴
