You have probably overheard friends discussing wheatgrass powder at some point during the last few years. Whether you’ve overheard discussions at work or family friend currently taking one of the many various forms of wheat grass but if you are like most people, you might still misunderstand wheat grass or the true healing power wheatgrass harnesses.

wheatgrass powder is basically the young blades of grass from wheatgrain. When the grain is soaked and planted it develops shoots within a few days. A few days later the shoots develop into blades of dense green grass. In as little as 8-10 days the wheatgrass can be ripe for harvesting, At this stage it is worth noting that although the wheat grass already posseses large levels of enzymes it has not had the required time to process complex carbohydrates which are often found in wheatgrass grown over winter.

As soon as the wheatgrass has been processed it is usually turned into numerous forms, which can include wheat grass powder (Mainly made by drying and grinding the wheat grass blades into a fine powder) wheat grass capsules (simply the powder capsulated for ease of consumption) wheatgrass tablets (again usually the powder cold pressed into tablet form) and wheatgrass juice. (The wheatgrass leaves are juiced in a specialist wheatgrass juicer which crushes the juice out of the wheatgrass leaving essential nutrients intact.)

Any of the various forms of wheat grass are packed with a wealth of health boosting attributes, with a large range of vitamins enzymes, minerals and amino acids. Wheatgrass also consists of over 70% chlorophyll, which is very similar in its DNA make up to blood. This means our bodies can absorbs the nutrients in wheatgrass very easily.

wheat grass powder has been used for decades but it has only recently reached the united kingdom and you can now find it online and at most health food shops. It has been in use for a large number of medical ailments and can be used on the skin for external skin problems like acne and eczema. Taken internally it can help cleanse the blood supply replenishing it with essential nutrients that are needed for optimum health.
