We all know wheatgrass is good for us -- those little shots of bright green liquid that smell like fresh-mowed grass and taste like, well, fresh-mowed grass. But do you really know why? Really, what's so great about wheatgrass?
Aside from the fact that it's been called nature's "greatest healer," wheatgrass is also considered a complete food with an ideal alkaline-acid balance. Just one ounce contains 103 vitamins, minerals and amino acids, and is a natural source of laetrille, or B-17.
At Hippocrates Health Institute, co-directors Brian and Anna Maria Clement teach people about the healing properties of raw, vegan organic foods, and one of the most powerful healing foods on the planet, according to the Clements, is wheatgrass.
