Let’s start with the number 17. Wheatgrass exceeds the 9 essential amino acid number by 8, totaling 17 amino acids, the building blocks of proteins. Wheatgrass is also rich in vitamins A, B complex, C, and E. This green machine also contains more than 90 minerals as well as essential enzymes. Another important compound present in wheatgrass is chlorophyll. Chlorophyll converts the sun’s energy into useful energy. This energy is transferred into our cells and blood and helps us build oxygen-carrying red blood cells.
Wheatgrass begins with a sweet earthy nuance then ties it all together with a grassy bitterness. Not something to sip on, but more than worth the bite! Luckily, wheatgrass is versatile and pairs itself very well with other smoothie or juice ingredients.
