What is Wheatgrass?

Wheatgrass is the young grass of the wheat plant, Triticum aestivum. It is harvested before the wheat plant forms seeds, at a stage when the grass is rich in nutrients. Wheatgrass is commonly consumed as a juice or powder and is celebrated for its high concentration of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and chlorophyll, which contribute to its numerous health benefits.

Where is it Usually Found in Nature?

Wheatgrass is grown from the wheat plant and can be cultivated indoors in trays or outdoors in fields. It is usually harvested when it is still young and tender, typically 7-10 days after sprouting. Wheatgrass is commonly found in health food stores and is available as fresh juice, powder, tablets, or capsules.
