Hi, I do not eat many vegetables, and I was wondering if I could take 1-2 shots of wheat grass daily to be healthier. Is this a good idea?
While wheatgrass does have some nutritional benefits, drinking a wheatgrass shot is not going to make up for a lack of vegetables. Firstly the fiber has been removed during the juicing process so you have lost one beneficial ingredient. Secondly wheatgrass whilst being rich in certain nutrients it does not contain every vitamin and mineral you need. You need to consume a broad range of fruit and vegetables to get all of your requirements that’s why its recommend that your aim for 5 different fruits and vegetables a day. Don’t stop drinking the wheatgrass juice, but consider it one of your 5-a-day.
