According to studies, a serving of  wheatgrass  is estimated to contain over 100 different elements needed by man, as chlorophyll. 

Wheatgrass is rich in the following nutrients:

  • Chlorophyll
  • Antioxidants like flavonoids and phenolic acid
  • Iron
  • Electrolytes including magnesium and calcium
  • Amino Acids
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E
  • Selenium

Chlorophyll, on its own, is the substance that gives wheatgrass its signature, bright green color. Like other nutrient-dense greens, the chlorophyll acts like an antioxidant to reduce free radical damage, detoxifies the body and strengthens the blood. You can buy it in a liquid form and use it as a supplement.

All greens contain chlorophyll but if you are not a veggie person and still try to consume them regularly for their health benefits – you can obtain your minimum daily intake of vitamins and minerals only from a teaspoon of wheatgrass powder (it is that potent!)

Hope you like this recipe and you stay warm during the cold season!
