Electric and manual wheatgrass juicers and wheatgrass health benefits are at the top of the charts in countless health news magazines. Juice and raw food fundis sing the praises of wheatgrass juice benefits in almost all natural cure books.
It is claimed to be from a detoxifying heavy-metal-cleaning body-broom, to a lymph cleanser, a red blood cell builder, and a liver and kidney revitalizer. Almost sounds like a recipe for long term health care insurance, doesn't it? Look at any healthy diet and nutrition program, and you are likely to find that it calls for the presence of an electric or manual wheatgrass juicer in the family kitchen!
Why Juicers Release All Those WheatGrass Health Benefits
This nutrient-rich wheat plant is seen as a vegetable in its early life stages. Extract its goodness with your wheatgrass juicer, and you have a superbly concentrated liquid, rich in vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll, and enzymes. In plant form, the claimed natural health cures remain locked up in the fibers, keeping the goodness from your body. But, get the juice out, and you have a power-packed liquid!
Another wheat grass juicer bonus is that apparently even people with a gluten intolerance can make use of this plant, in spite of its name. Gluten is seemingly only present in the seed kernel, and not in the stem and grass leaves of the young plant. Check with your doctor, though, to be on the safe side.

One warning, though! Wheatgrass side effects are few, but the juice comes with a very strong flavor and taste indeed. This is not one to give to kids when they start juicing! Take it very slow yourself at first. You probably won't enjoy drinking it neat. Use other juices or even a smoothie to disguise the taste, until you get used to it.
