View Full Version : Wheatgrass Shots
I drank one ounce of wheatgrass from the local Jamba Juice for the past couple of days first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. How many of you drink this and when do the ...how shall I put this... gaseous effects of drinking this stuff stop? What does wheatgrass do to the system to cause this?

well i don't think i've noticed anything like that but from what i hear on an empty stomach is the way your supposed to take the wheat grass. Hopefully someone who knows a little bit more will jump in here and have an idea for you. sorry i was not more helpful. cheer's coffeesquirrel

Not had that effect myself but it does remind me of the first time I drank wheatgrass juice. I grew it myself and of course juiced it. I didn't know you were meant to have "shots" and prepared 1/2 pint and drank it straight down. :eek:
Even worse, I made some for my sister (not into raw, or even remotely healthy!!)
The effects of that were quite dramatic - lets just say, I was thoroughly "cleansed".
Not so keen on the taste now ;)
Sorry, back to your question. I have drunk it since and have never noticed gas effects. Try drinking half a short and see what happens. Maybe you just need to get used to it.

I have taken shots of WG quite often (I try to do it regularly) and I don't ever remember having any kind of gas problems. It's strange that you are having such a problem with it. I have never heard of anything like that before. I know that it makes some people a little queasy but I've not heard gassy. I check into it though and let you know what I find out!

I don't know about the wheat grass per say,
but I know the 1st week I went raw I was quite gassy
and bloated. It seems a lot better now. I would guess
that the wheatgrass is new to your system and you just
need to get use to it.
Yeah the Raw Diet is causing disturbances. How long does it last?

I love a shot of wheat grass followed by a carrot juice for breakfast. You are suppose to have wheat grass on an empty stomache. I've never had a problem with it.

Yeah, wheatgrass on empty stomach, start small like one oz and build up to 3 or 4 oz.
I had the same experience except it was gas AND nausea. My "colonic lady" said that it's a sign of parasites in the intestines when we get gaseous or nauseous :eek: So I asked I'm a vegan, how can I get parasites?? She said not washing your veggies and fruits well enough. parasites can get in the cracks and crevices of the fruits and veggies. She said to water each shot down and to drink something like carrot or apple juice after. Eventually the parasites will be cleaned out. Gross huh??
I have avoided the entire subject entirely since she told me that. Now I'm reminded to go back to wheatgrass juice regularly and start the cleaning out process.
P.S. I found a link for a parasite cleansing system that sounds good...My DH and I will be doing the cleanse in a week. here it is

What about wheat grass supplements? I see that our health food store has wheat grass caspsules- are those the same as taking a shot of it? I have never tried it- I am glad to know that Jamba juice sells shots though- I will try it out :D
