Good Morning from Crunchytown! This morning I realized something awful: I am out of wheatgrass. How did I let this happen? I jumped on Amazon to re-order, stat – and then felt inspired to share some of this amazing-ness with all of you.
What’s so amazing about wheatgrass, you wonder? Well get ready for this:
A serving of this superfood jam packs: Vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, E, & K, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Folate, Pantothenic Acid, & Cholene. Also, tons of minerals: Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Zinc, Copper, Manganese, & Selenium.
Now, on to the amazing benefits:
Improves circulation, helps absorption of other vitamins and minerals in your diet (suppressing appetite and sugar cravings), reduces inflammation, has natural detoxing effects to rid your body of environmental toxins and those found in our food, helps with digestion, helps heal digestive issues and leaky gut, helps with joint pain/arthritis, assist in dental healing, breaks up congestion to help fight colds/sinus infections, stabilizing blood sugar, promote clear and healthy skin, hair and nails, prevent cancer by creating an environment in your body where cancer cells cannot thrive, destroys un-healthy bacteria in your body, boost immune system, and it can replace your need for vegetable intake on the days you use it (though we would never recommend replacing those great greens!). The list certainly goes on and on and the best thing is: Studies have never shown wheatgrass to be toxic to humans or animals in any amount. Because the vitamins and minerals in this superfood are from a living plant and completely natural, it is hard to overdose on them. However, please remember that less is more and there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. Follow the serving recommendations on the kind you purchase and do some research to find the right amount for you. In my family, we use about 4 grams as 1 serving, and I give my children 1/2 of a serving every day.

Swish a shot of wheatgrass instead of mouthwash to re-mineralize your teeth, fight cavities. It has a ton more benefits than toothpaste or mouthwash.
Boil a serving in a small saucepan and inhale the steam to clear out congestion related to cold/sinus/allergy infections.
Add to juice, applesauce, smoothies, etc – or just drink a quick express shot to kickstart your day.
Wheatgrass is made from a living plant, and it is very important that you consume wheatgrass grown in organic soil and in pure form – so it is gluten free.
Let’s get shopping! This is the only brand I trust – I know that they use 100% organic practices, no-GMOs, no pesticides and have been proven safe and effective. I encourage you to give it a try for 2 weeks and see if you feel an amazing difference in how you look and feel!
Cheers & love from
