Wheatgrass, The Miracle for Detox!

Wheatgrass, The Miracle for Detox!

Hey guys, today I am going to share with you all about drinking Wheatgrass juice. Our bodies operate on a pH scale balance , ie.on an alkaline and acidic index. So you want to make sure you are eating enough alkaline foods. Wheatgrass is absolutely amazing. It is one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. Wheatgrass contains Vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B8 and B12 along with Vitamin K and the list is not done yet. It also consists of all 8 amino acids and 13 out of the 16 non-essential amino acids. A single teaspoon of wheatgrass juice has only 10 calories and 1gram of protein. This is Incredible, isn’t it? Wheatgrass is simply superb and easily available in many juice stores like jamba juice and juice it up.In these juicing places you buy it and they put a lemon slice or lime right next to it. I have heard that by taking the lemon after you take a shot of wheatgrass, the citrus kills a lot of the nutrients. If you have heard the same thing leave a comment below and let me know your thoughts on that.
