Wheatgrass is the name of the young grass of a wheat plant. It is a thick, dry grass that looks like hay or straw but is bright green. It plays a role in natural and holistic medicine, and it may have some specific health benefits.
Some people call wheatgrass green blood because it contains high source of chlorophyll, which gives wheatgrass products an unusual green hue.
Wheatgrass contains few calories, but is rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins, and enzymes.
People can consume wheatgrass fresh or in various other ways, such as fresh or frozen juice, tablets, and powder.
