Powdered Wheatgrass Benefits

Taking wheatgrass regularly can produce amazing benefits: weight loss, alkaline blood, increased energy, reduced infection, and even cancer treatment. Wheatgrass is a superfood with benefits that should not be ignored.
What are the benefits of powdered wheatgrass versus fresh? This question is similar to comparing frozen versus fresh produce. Oftentimes, frozen produce is picked at the peak of freshness and is flash-frozen to retain as many nutrients as possible. Freezing destroys far fewer nutrients than does heat, so frozen produce is richer in nutrients than is canned produce.
The same principle holds for comparing fresh and powdered wheatgrass. Wheatgrass is freeze-dried, which retains even more nutrients than does flash freezing. When comparing perfectly prepared fresh and powdered wheatgrass, fresh is preferable. However, not everyone has the time or capability to prepare wheatgrass to perfection. Preparing wheatgrass at home can yield moldy, leggy, or yellow wheatgrass. This wheatgrass, though fresh, is probably inferior to powdered wheatgrass. Wheatgrass must then be juiced properly. If a wheatgrass juicer is not used, many of the nutrients in the wheatgrass will be lost.

If powdered wheatgrass is available, affordable, and convenient and fresh wheatgrass is iffy, choose the powdered wheatgrass every time. Powdered wheatgrass also has the benefit of being easy to take regularly. Juicing wheatgrass at home takes time, space, and continuity. If it isn’t kept up with, the process falls apart. Taking powdered wheatgrass in juice, water, or in capsules is quick and easy.

Choosing to eat frozen vegetables versus no vegetables is a good choice. Choosing to take powdered wheatgrass because it is what you can commit to doing regularly is a good choice that can change your life.

  1. Ok. So I’m one of those people who would not keep up the growing and juicing regimen that’s required to consume fresh wheatgrass juice daily. That said, my question is, how much powdered wheatgrass would I need to consume to get the equivelant of a suggestec amount of fresh juice?

  2. You really make it appear really easy along with your presentation however I to find this matter to be really one thing which I believe I might by no means understand.
    It sort of feels too complicated and very large for me.
    I’m looking ahead in your next submit, I will try to get the cling of it!

    Why is the questions not answered on this page? I also have some of the questions already mentioned but no answers. I need to know if I bought the seed and planted it in a pot. How many ml of the fresh juice do I need every day? I always when working in the garden take some wheetgrass from the pot and chew on them while swolloing the juice an spit out the grass. maybe this is not enough?
