View Full Version : Wheat grass Q

I know most people juice their wheat grass, but can you just cut some grass & put it in a smoothie? I was trying to think of a reason this wouldn't be okay, but I'm not coming up with anything at the moment....

It's so incredibly fibrous that it could wrap around the blender parts and wreak havoc on the machine.
We don't have the stomach capacity to get anything nutritious out of it, although I suppose the fiber could scrape your intestines clean. Think of how a cow has seven stomach and how much work she does chewing her cud to make a meal out of grass. Even a normal juicer can't deal with wheat grass; it takes a hard-core juicer to extract the magic out of it.

for wheat grass juice on their site. I think it's put the wheat grass in with some water and blend away. They claim their machine can but it up so much it has the same nutrition as a grass juicer.

You can only juice it or you can buy it at a booster juice place where they do sell wheat grass shut.

I also read an article where our digestive systems would not be able to break down the wheatgrass to obtain all the nutrients. I personally use frozen 100% organic wheatgrass. I also read if you grow it yourself in soil,you run a high risk of mold which some people could have adverse reactions to.
Hope that helps.

I was just reading an article in the Natural Health mag and Brian Clements from Hippocrates Institute was saying your body can't assimilate all the nutrients unless it is juiced. It can't do the same if is is eaten or blended.
