Nicknamed “liquid gold” wheatgrass is an excellent source of minerals. It contains vitamin A, C, E, iron, calcium, magnesium and 19 amino acids. The absolute star of wheatgrass is chlorophyll though, a phytochemical that gives dark leafy greens their colour. Wheatgrass is made up of 70 percent chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is essentially the blood of plants. Only green plants can transform the energy of the sun into chlorophyll via photosynthesis, so imagine it is like drinking liquid sunshine. Wheatgrass is highly alkaline which can support you if you need a detox.
