    Wheatgrass Extract

    Triticum Aestivum

    Wheatgrass Extract

    What is it?

    Wheatgrass is the young grass of the wheat plant, Triticum aestivum. Wheatgrass grows in temperate regions throughout Europe and the United States and can grow indoors or outdoors. You can grow your own wheatgrass by soaking wheat seeds in water and then harvesting the leaves as they grow.

    Key Information

    • Stimulate Circulation: Wheatgrass has the ability to increase the amount of oxygen in the blood, making it a great way to stimulate circulation.
    • Improve Digestion: Instead of reaching for antacids to relieve heartburn or indigestion, introduce wheatgrass into your daily regimen and benefit from its vitamin B, amino acids and enzyme content.

    More Information

    Wheatgrass juice is a popular health drink. It is thought to benefit health only when fresh and taken on an empty stomach immediately after extraction. But there is no research to date that supports this. In foods and beverages, wheatgrass extracts are used as a flavoring component.
