Superfoods: Wheatgrass

Wheatgrass is a must have in your daily diet. This is a young grass of the common wheat plant, triticum aestivum. It is loaded with the following nutrients:

  • Iron
  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Amino Acids
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E

But what adds to the value of wheatgrass? It is the high amount of chlorophyll it contains. Chlorophyll is a much-needed nutrient that the Westerner’s body often goes without.
