But I feel healthy and vibrant when I drink a 2oz shot of it once a week!
I seriously don’t get the wheatgrass thing, I tried it myself, growing, harvesting and drinking it. It tasted awful, give me fruit over grass on any day!! :D
Lol, Jelle - "If you give a baby a shot of wheatgrass juice and a peach, which will he eat and which will he tip over and roll around in?"
Hi, Wendy. I can't weigh in on the good or the bad of wheatgrass, but I will tell you about the ugly: Don't overdo it! A friend of mine thought she lucked out when she went to a retreat where they offered all the wheatgrass juice you can drink. She drank two 8-ounces glasses and got very very very very sick! (Just temporary, but wouldn't want you to have to go through that experience.)
i was told that it triggers an immune response. It has some sort of protection mechanism to deter other animals from eating it while its in its young state.
What i have learnt from my raw lifestyle is that if you cannot consume something in large quantities without falling ill then you shouldn't be consuming it.
i think wheatgrass is for people that have a poor immune system. What i believe it does is it stimulates immune response so that whatever you are suffering from temporarily gets driven back and you feel better.
Just this morning i realised that i do not need it because I slept really well without it. In the past it really helped me because i was a complete wreck
