However if you don’t have a high power blender, not to worry!

HEALTH BENEFITS OF WHEATGRASS
Where should we begin? Wheatgrass is intensely good for you in so many ways.
To start off, wheatgrass juice contains up to 70% chlorophyll, which is an important blood builder.
Wheatgrass is high in oxygen, like all green plants that contain chlorophyll.
This is beneficial because the brain and all body tissues function at an optimal level in a highly-oxygenated environment.
With an improved diet, wheatgrass can cure acne and even help to remove scars after it has been ingested for seven to eight months.
It even helps clear up eczema and psoriasis.
Wheatgrass juice held in the mouth for 5 minutes will help eliminate toothaches and pulls poisons from the gums.
