Recipe | green juice made with wheatgrass juice

9 April 2015 by Strøm Spa Nordique

Every spring, when the buds on the trees become visible, most of us have the desire to cleanse ourselves and eat healthy. We would like to introduce you to a healthy cocktail recipe made with wheatgrass.

Wheatgrass is made from wheat grains that were germinated and planted. The young shoots are then pressed. The juice that is collected is called wheatgrass juice and is one of the most complete foods available in nature. It contains 70% of chlorophyll and a concentrate of beneficial substances: vitamins A, B, C and E, 92 of the 118 minerals, 18 amino acids (including the essential 8), digestive enzymes and proteins. The consumption of wheatgrass juice significantly improves your health. It is a very powerful purifier. If you decide to start a cleansing treatment, you need to do it gradually and, above all, ask a naturopath. It is important to know that one should not take wheatgrass during pregnancy and should limit the consumption while breastfeeding.

Adding wheatgrass to your diet helps:

  • Your digestion
  • To strengthen the immune system;
  • Cell renewal;
  • Proper functioning of the organs;
  • To improve vitality and endurance.
