Grand Rapids, Mich. (WOTV) - Tis' the season for the flu. It seems like everywhere I turn, people are getting the flu, have the flu or recovering from the flu. What if I told you that I had something that could help your body PREVENT the flu by keeping your body alkaline and functioning at its peak? Expecting a pill, right? Think again. It's green, packed with mother nature's finest healing properties and you juice it: Wheatgrass!
Most buy it just for their pets, but it's great for YOU TOO. Check out some of the health benefits that Wheatgrass can provide.
-Increases red blood-cell count and lowers blood pressure
-It cleanses the blood, organs and gastrointestinal tract of debris
-Stimulates metabolism and the body’s enzyme systems by enriching the blood
-Aids in reducing blood pressure by dilating the blood pathways throughout the body
-Stimulates the thyroid gland, correcting obesity, indigestion, and a host of other complaints
-Restores alkalinity to the blood
-Is a powerful detoxifier, and liver and blood protector
-Externally applied to the skin can help eliminate itching almost immediately
-Sweetens the breath and firms up and tightens gums
-Turns gray hair BACK to its natural color again! (MY husband and I can personally attest to this one.)
How to Drink Wheatgrass:
Drink 2-6oz everyday as a shot/s, or put some wheatgrass juice in your blender the next time you are making a smoothie, or mix wheatgrass juice with pineapple juice and ginger juice for a morning "ZINGER"!
Where to Find Wheatgrass:
You can find containers of wheatgrass in the produce section of your local D&W Fresh Market . D&W Fresh Market-Knapp's Crossing now carries in-stock, flats of organic wheatgrass for $19.99/flat. And, for my favorite wheatgrass juicer, click here .
Cheers to your health!
