Wheatgrass Powder - 100 g - Herbal Collection



Wheatgrass powder has a wide range of traditional uses, and there are several ways to incorporate it into your diet. Here's a breakdown:


Traditional Uses of Wheatgrass Powder


  • Detoxification: Wheatgrass is believed to help cleanse the body of toxins and impurities.
  • Boosting Immunity: The high vitamin and antioxidant content may support the immune system.
  • Improving Digestion: The fiber in wheatgrass can aid digestion and promote regularity.
  • Blood Health: Wheatgrass is thought to boost hemoglobin levels and support overall blood health.
  • Alkalizing the Body: Some believe wheatgrass can help restore a healthy pH balance.
  • Skin Health: Can be used topically or consumed for potential benefits like reducing inflammation and promoting clear skin.


How to Prepare and Use Wheatgrass Powder


  1. Wheatgrass Shots: The most common way is to mix 1-2 teaspoons of wheatgrass powder with a small amount of water or juice and drink it quickly as a "shot."
  2. Smoothies: Add wheatgrass powder to your favorite smoothies for a nutritional boost. It blends well with fruits, vegetables, and other healthy ingredients.
  3. Juices: Mix wheatgrass powder into fresh juices for added nutrients.
  4. Capsules: If you dislike the taste, wheatgrass powder is available in capsule form.
  5. Topical Application: You can create a paste with wheatgrass powder and water for potential skincare benefits.




  • Start Slow: Begin with a small amount (1/2 teaspoon) and gradually increase to avoid any digestive upset.
  • Taste: Wheatgrass has a grassy, earthy flavor, which some find unappealing. Blending it with fruits or juices can improve the taste.
  • Quality Matters: Choose organic, high-quality wheatgrass powder for the best results.


Important Considerations:


  • Talk to Your Doctor: Consult your healthcare provider before using wheatgrass, especially if you have health conditions or are on medications.
  • Not a Cure-All: While wheatgrass has potential benefits, it shouldn't be treated as a cure for any disease or replace professional medical advice.
