Why no other shot gives us what Wheatgrass does - 60 interesting facts we never knew!

It’s the only thing like it on Earth, that we can drink one shot glass of one ounce liquid and get over 100 minerals, plus 2.5 pounds of green vegetables. For such a high dose of nutrition so quickly and fresh, it’s surprising that not more people are drinking wheatgrass. 

Here are some benefits that will you get you ready to drink wheatgrass every day this week for New York City Wheatgrass Week January 2nd-6th. 

11 Benefits of Wheatgrass

Wheatgrass is like a natural energy drink that is fresh, raw, and organic. It is full of vitamins and nutrients that provide your body with what it needs to be completely healthy and heal itself. 

1)    Extremely high in chlorophyll which a lot of us already knew, but what I found was particularly interesting is that chlorophyll has a similar chemical composition as hemoglobin; a red protein responsible for transporting oxygen in the blood of vertebrates, the backbone or spine. This is why so many cancer patients start drinking wheatgrass.

2)    Higher antioxidant dosage than typical vegetables- Some of the phytonutrients include antioxidants which can illuminate free radicals that damage our body’s tissues. A study suggests (Phytother. Res. 20, 2006) wheatgrass contains higher antioxidant levels than typical vegetables.

3)    Improves mental health and clarity. Helps to clear brain fog and is a helpful treatment for depression and anxiety. How can we not feel better after drinking a wheatgrass shot?

4)    Improves the immune system, and when the immune system is supported we have a better chance of healing what is causing us stress, pain and suffering.

5)    Assists in weight loss. When we get the nutrition we need daily we tend to not crave junk foods making it easier to lose weight.

6)    Vitamins including C, as much as citrus fruits. Vitamin A, As much as dark green lettuce or carrots.

7)    Minerals including Calcium, Iron, Potassium, Magnesium, Selenium, Zinc.

8)    Essential Amino Acids - “The building blocks of proteins”. I never knew wheatgrass had amino acids which make up a large proportion of our cells, muscles and tissue, meaning they carry out many important bodily functions, such as giving cells their structure.

9)    “Live” Enzymes - Enzymes carry out many bodily functions including helping with good digestion and keeping the gut clean.

10)  Glucose - The simple sugar. This accounts for wheatgrass’s naturally sweet taste. This is a safe and healthy sugar which can easily be used by the body and provide instant energy. When we consume natural sugars it fulfills our body to not feel deprived so we don’t crave refined sugars and sweeteners which can be life changing for someone who is addicted to eating junk foods and wants to break this cycle and shed excess weight that holds people back.

11) Thousands of phytonutrients (plant nutrients) only found in raw produce. Not just hundreds, but thousands which help to protect vitality in the body. Ever noticed how someone who does wheatgrass naturally glows and has a more vibrant energy?

Other benefits of drinking wheatgrass include increase in Energy, Strength and Focus, Feeling More Alert & Awake, Has Anti-aging effect, Increases Work Out, protects Against Cancer-Causing Chemicals, Rids the Body of Toxins (like Heavy Metals), Stabilizes Blood Sugar Levels & Alkalinity, Improve Fertility, Improve Digestion, Ease Pain, Aid Nearly Every Body System.

“Wheatgrass is to an adult as mothers milk is to an infant” - Harley Matsil. Mothers milk consists of about 85% water and 15% every nutrient needed to sustain an infant. Wheatgrass is similar in its nutritional composition in that it is majority water and a smaller percentage of almost every known vitamin and nutrient an adult needs. 

Spirituality of Wheatgrass

Whether you are “religious” or not, Biblically wheatgrass is talked about throughout scriptures which is interesting just to point out. People are always immediately magnetically drawn to the wheatgrass, stroking it with their hands and face, showing the spiritual power within it. On page one of the bible it says, “And God said,  “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness. Then God said, I have given you every grass bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for food.” When god created man he created him to eat grass and fruit. That is according to page one of the bible. 

Harley Matsil, the CEO of Perfect Foods, the largest wheatgrass growers in the world, also believes you journey bringing wheatgrass to New York was guided through spirituality. “There have been so many seemingly insurmountable obstacles to bring wheatgrass and sprouts to the masses the only explanation is that I was guided by something bigger. My purpose on earth was to grow wheatgrass, educate and save lives. Now my children will carry on my mission.”

Personal Healing Stories and Science about wheatgrass

There are stories of people who used wheatgrass to help fight and prevent disease including arthritis, lymphatic and bone cancer.

Despite the countless anecdotes of wheatgrass aiding in recovery for cancer, arthritis, diabetes, digestive problems, infertility and more, there are many scientific studies that support this as well. Scientific studies were performed that suggested wheatgrass helps in ulcerative colitis, improve toxicity from chemotherapy in breast cancer patients, reducing requirements for blood transfusions and many more.   


1. Wheatgrass juice contains up to 70% chlorophyll, which is an important blood builder. The chlorophyll molecules closely resemble that of the hemin molecule, the pigment which combines with protein to form hemoglobin. The major difference is the chlorophyll molecule contains magnesium as it’s central atom, and the hemin molecule contains iron. The molecular structure of these two substances is almost identical in all other respects.
2. Wheatgrass juice is an effective healer because it contains all minerals known to man, and vitamins A, B-complex, C, E and K.
3. Wheatgrass is extremely rich in protein, and contains 17 amino acids, the building blocks of protein.
4. Wheatgrass juice is one of the best sources of living chlorophyll available today.However, to get the full benefit, the chlorophyll must come fresh from a living plant.
5.Chlorophyll contains enzymes and super-oxide dismutase (SOD), a copper-containing protein found in mature red blood cells. This enzyme decomposes superoxide radicals in the body into a more manageable form, thereby helping to slow down the aging process.
6. Chlorophyll is the first product of sunlight and, therefore, contains more ‘light energy’ than any other food element.Wheatgrass juice contains crude chlorophyll (as opposed to pure) and can be taken orally and as a colon implant without side effects. In addition, scientists have never found wheatgrass to be toxic in any amount when given to either animals or humans.
7. Science has proven that chlorophyll arrests growth and development of unfriendly bacteria.
8. Chlorophyll is antibacterial and can be used inside and outside the body as a natural healer. The United States Army exposed guinea pigs to lethal doses of radiation. The guinea pigs fed chlorophyll-rich vegetables such as cabbage and broccoli had half the mortality rate as those fed a non-chlorophyll diet.
9. Chlorophyll can be extracted from many plants, but wheatgrass is superior because it has been found to have over 100 elements needed by man. If grown in organic soil, it absorbs 92 of the known 115 minerals from the soil.
10. Liquid chlorophyll has the ability to get into the tissue, where it can actually refine and renew them.
11. The bland soothing effect of chlorophyll (wheatgrass) ointments are very beneficial to the treatment of various skin diseases involving the outer and underlying layers of the skin, including: itching and burning of the rectum; ivy poisoning; weeping and dry eczema and even in conditions caused by insect bites or infection.
12. Doctors R. Redpath and J. C. Davis found chlorophyll packs inserted into the sinuses had a drying effect, clearing up congestion, and giving immediate relief. Congested head colds were cleared up within 24 hours.
13. Liquid chlorophyll washes drug deposits from the body.
14. Chlorophyll neutralizes toxins in the body.
15. Chlorophyll helps purify the liver. You can improve your liver health by focusing on herbs and foods like wheatgrass that are known to regenerate liver tissue, support its detoxification process of alcohol, and protect it from the damage induced by your favorite libations.
16. Chlorophyll improves blood sugar problems.
17. In the American Journal of Surgery (1940), Benjamin Gruskin, M.D. recommends chlorophyll for its antiseptic benefits. The article suggests the following clinical uses for chlorophyll: to clear up foul smelling odors, neutralize Strep infections, heal wounds, hasten skin grafting, to cure chronic sinusitis, overcome chronic inner ear inflammation and infection, reduce varicose veins and heal leg ulcers, eliminate impetigo and other scabby eruptions, heal rectal sores, successfully treat inflammation of the uterine cervix, get rid of parasitic vaginal infections, reduce typhoid fever, and cure advanced pyorrhea in many cases.
18. Dr. Birscher, a research scientist, called chlorophyll “concentrated sun power.” He said, “chlorophyll increases the function of the heart, affects the vascular system, the intestines, the uterus, and the lungs.”
19. Wheatgrass juice can dissolve the scars that are formed in the lungs from breathing acid gasses. The effect of carbon monoxide is minimized since chlorophyll increases hemoglobin production.
20. Wheatgrass is high in oxygen like all green plants that contain chlorophyll. This is beneficial because the brain and all body tissues function at an optimal level in a highly- oxygenated environment.
21. It is a nutritionally complete food which will sustain the growth and development of laboratory animals and humans alike. Wheatgrass has what is called the grass-juice factor, which has been shown to keep herbivorous animals alive practically indefinitely.
22. Wheatgrass juice is a superior detoxification agent compared to carrot juice and other fruits and vegetables.
23. The starch of the wheat berry is stored energy which when converted to simpler sugars is a quick energy source. It is especially good for athletes because it is a juice and is assimilated in 20 minutes or less, and uses very little of the body’s energy to extract the nutrients…
24. Because 1 ounce of juice equals 2 pounds of produce nutritionally, it naturally shuts off the appestat in the brain.
25. Wheatgrass contains a full spectrum of vitamins and minerals, including the thirteen essential ones, combined with dozens of trace elements and enzymes.
26. Wheatgrass juice is an effective healer because it contains all minerals known to man, and vitamins A, B-complex, C, E, l and K. It is extremely rich in protein, and contains 17 amino acids, the building blocks of protein.
27. Farmers in the Midwest who have sterile cows and bulls put them on wheatgrass to restore fertility. (The high magnesium content in chlorophyll builds enzymes that restore the sex hormones.)
28. Wheatgrass juice cures acne and even help to remove scars after it has been ingested for seven to eight months. The diet, of course, must be improved at the same time.
29. Wheatgrass juice acts as a detergent in the body and can be used as a body deodorant.
30. A small amount of wheatgrass juice in the human diet helps prevent tooth decay.

36. Wheatgrass juice improves the digestion.
37. Wheatgrass juice is an excellent skin cleanser and can be absorbed through the skin for nutrition. Pour green juice over your body in a tub of warm water and soak for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse off with cold water.
38. Wheatgrass implants (enemas) are great for healing and detoxifying the colon walls. The implants also heal and cleanse the internal organs. After an enema is evacuated, implant 4 ounces of wheatgrass juice. Retain for 20 minutes.
39. Wheatgrass juice improves arthritis. Soak a cotton sock with 6 ounces and place on affected area, cover with plastic bag.
40. For minor eye irritation apply strained wheatgrass juice mixed with half pure water in an eye cup for 15 – 30 seconds.
41. Massage 6 ounces into the scalp and cover with shower cap for 15 minutes to help eliminate dandruff.

49. Dr. Earp Thomas said, “Wheat is the king of all grain foods”. He found that an ounce of wheatgrass in a gallon of fluoridated water would turn the fluorine into harmless calcium-phosphate-fluoride compound. Used in wash water it adds softness to the face and hands. In the bath, it is most soothing. It stops bleeding, eases itching, and helps sores and pimples to heal.
