Wheatgrass Juice Provides Relief From Digestive Issues

When you have digestive problems, it’s easy to become dependent on over-the-counter drugs. I’ve had many patients come to me for help breaking their antacid habit.

If you feel like you’re a slave to antacids, I have a solution for you that I bet you haven’t thought of before. Many people with chronic digestive issues find lasting relief by drinking wheatgrass juice. Wheatgrass juice is an all-natural, very nutritious way to relieve your indigestion pain.

Nature’s Own Healing Agent

Wheatgrass is a cousin of the wheat we grow for flour. Its technical name is agropyron. When it’s still young, wheatgrass looks pretty much like grass. The juice from wheatgrass is incredibly nutritious. From vitamins and minerals to amino acids and enzymes, wheatgrass juice contains many things that can enhance your digestion and your general health.

Wheatgrass juice has been touted to cure everything from male pattern baldness to anemia to bad breath. It’s been purported to prevent cancer and enhance weight loss. Despite some outlandish claims, many benefits of wheatgrass juice are very real. The digestive benefits, in particular, are backed up by good research.

Proven Relief From Your Indigestion

Wheatgrass juice is a good source vitamin B, amino acids and enzymes. Each of these helps promote healthy digestion. Whether you have constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcers, or other stomach problems, drinking wheatgrass juice each day can provide quick and lasting relief.

In one study, patients with ulcerative colitis were given either 3 ounces of wheatgrass juice each day or a placebo. Those receiving the wheatgrass juice saw significant improvements in their symptoms. They had less pain and discomfort and experienced less rectal bleeding.

It’s the high level of enzymes in wheatgrass juice that helps improve digestion by causing your body to properly break down foods and absorb nutrients. Enzymes are essential to good digestion. Unfortunately, the average American diet is deficient in enzymes. A daily serving of wheatgrass juice can bring your own enzyme levels back into balance and that can do wonders for your digestion.

The high chlorophyll content of wheatgrass juice also helps promote good digestion. Chlorophyll which is valued for its detoxifying effects, works by removing toxins from the blood and by supporting good liver function. Most importantly for your digestion, it helps to cleanse your bowels. When your bowels are clean, they work better, and you’ll notice less gas, bloating, and discomfort after eating.

Where to Find Wheatgrass Juice

You can get wheatgrass juice from juice bars, health food stores, or you can grow your own.

At juice bars, you can get wheatgrass juice that is mixed into a tasty smoothie. This is an easy way to benefit, but it can get expensive if you’re trying to drink wheatgrass juice every day.

If you have a green thumb and a juicer at home, you can grow and juice your own wheatgrass. Wheatgrass grows quickly. It sprouts and is ready to juice within one to two weeks. Growing your own wheatgrass is the cheapest way to get all the benefits of this amazing food… and you’ll be certain about the freshness and ingredients used to raise your wheatgrass.

Personally, I prefer a quick visit to my local health food store, which carries wheatgrass juice. This “middle ground” solution lets me enjoy the benefits of wheatgrass juice without the trouble of tending the plants. Because you only need two to three ounces a day of wheatgrass juice a quart easily lasts me three weeks, making it a cost-effective option as well.

I do want to note one more thing about using wheatgrass juice. Most people don’t enjoy the taste. I use my blender to mix the wheatgrass juice with a variety of fruit juices. This masks the flavor without interfering with any of the benefits.

Wheatgrass juice is a great supplement, especially for digestive disorders. Whether you get a smoothie made to order or juice your own, you’re sure to enjoy the digestive benefits of wheatgrass juice.
