Why Grow and Drink Wheatgrass Juice?

If you haven't heard already, here are a few of the reasons you should try drinking wheatgrass. I am not trying to sell you anything here. My goal is simply to inform as many people as I can about this wonderful little drink that gives thousands of people a much needeed boost of liquid energy every day.

* Wheatgrass contains at least 13 vitamins, several antioxidants, and a bunch of other minerals and enzymes

* Growing your own wheatgrass is a fun and rewarding hobby that almost anybody can do.

* Farmers give wheatgrass juice to bulls that become steril. After a while, most bulls can return to their jobs. Drinking wheatgrass also helps boost sexual stamina in humans. The high magnesium content in chlorophyll builds enzymes that restore the sex hormones.

Can't we just snip it with scissors and put it on our salads or beans and such?... all this juicing seems like an awful lot of trouble ( & expense!)

Sorry Peachbelle,

I wish we could eat it in salads, but human stomachs can't digest the fibers in wheatgrass and get the nutrients out of it without juicing it first. For a lot more information about this, take a look at the post on this subject under the label "About Wheatgrass" in this blog.
