High in Nutrients and Antioxidants
Wheatgrass is an excellent source of many different vitamins and minerals. It is especially high in vitamins A, C, and E, as well as iron, magnesium, calcium and amino acids.
Of its 17 amino acids, eight are considered essential, meaning your body cannot produce them and you must obtain them from food sources.
Like all green plants, wheatgrass also consists of chlorophyll, a type of green plant pigment associated with many health benefits.
It also contains several important antioxidants, including glutathione and vitamins C and E.
Antioxidants are compounds that fight free radicals to prevent cell damage and reduce oxidative stress.
Some studies have found that antioxidants may help protect against certain conditions, such as heart disease, and neurodegenerative diseases.
In one study, wheatgrass decreased oxidative stress and improved cholesterol levels in rabbits fed a high-fat diet. Additionally, supplementing with wheatgrass increased levels of the antioxidants glutathione and vitamin C.
Another test-tube study that evaluated the antioxidant activity of wheatgrass found it reduced oxidative damage to cells.
Vitamin K1 has always been known as the "coagulation vitamin because it helps keep the body’s blood-clotting mechanism functioning in a healthy manner. Vitamin K2, on the other hand, has been shown to activate 17 proteins. For example, vitamin K2 activates a protein called osteocalcin, which ensures that as much bone is built to replace the one that is broken down. Vitamin K2 also encourages a protein called Matrix Gla protein (MGP) to keep arteries healthy by discouraging calcium from sticking to the walls.
May Alleviate Inflammation
Inflammation is a normal response triggered by the immune system to protect the body against injury and infection.
Some research shows that wheatgrass and its components may help reduce inflammation.
One small study in 23 people looked at the effects of wheatgrass juice on ulcerative colitis, a disease characterized by inflammation in the large intestine.
