The 411 on Wheatgrass and Barley Grass

August 21, 2018

Sometimes we like to start meetings at Just Add Water™ with shots. Nooooo, it’s not what you’re thinking. We’re talking about shots of wheatgrass or barley grass, not a shot of tequila!

 

These shots give us so much natural energy that our body needs. Both wheatgrass and barley grass are excellent sources of vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids, antioxidants, and chlorophyll.  As we mentioned a few weeks ago, chlorophyll is a phytochemical that gives many foods their superfood status. Both wheatgrass and barley grass are sources of insoluble fiber, which acts as prebiotics to improve gut health and our overall digestive health.

 

On top of improving digestive health, studies found that by incorporating wheatgrass and barley grass into healthy diets can help lower total cholesterol levels, regulate blood sugar levels, reduce inflammation, strengthen the liver, and boost the immune system. Both are also found to help regulate satiation, meaning it helps your body control and normalize your eating habits.

 

As wheat and barley are one of the first domesticated grains, their nutritious benefits have been used for thousands of years. It’s said that Roman Gladiators ingested barley grass to help boost their strength, stamina and endurance. But that doesn’t mean you have to be a gladiator to enjoy their nutritious benefits!

 

Both wheatgrass and barley grass are readily available as fresh juice at juice and smoothie bars. They’re also found as ground up powders, tablets and capsules that can be added into your morning smoothie. We make it even easier by adding them into every serving of Just Add Water™.

 

The best part? Our gluten-free fans can rest easy. As gluten is found only in wheat seeds and barley grays, wheatgrass and barley grass are 100% safe for you to enjoy!

 

Have you tried wheatgrass or barley grass before?
