Wheatgrass is a member of the Poaceae family of plants and contains highly concentrated nutrients that humans need to sustain life, specifically: iron, calcium, vitamins A, C and E, magnesium, amino acids and chlorophyll. Wheatgrass supplements are also a rich source of vitamin B12, however, this is due to microorganisms found living on the plant and not because the plant naturally contains this vitamin.
Its history as a medicine and dietary supplement is long-standing, having been cited as aiding in the treatment of a multitude of differing ailments from colitis to cancer. Wheatgrass supplements are also said to detoxify internal organs, help slow the graying of hair, improve the amount of oxygen in the blood, lowering cholesterol, reducing blood pressure and more. Despite a lack of research confirming wheatgrass as an effective alternative medicine, it remains incredibly popular both as a supplement and as a drink.
