Have you ever tried the Wheatgrass by Juice Works?
Wheatgrass is the young grass of the common wheat plant called triticum aestivum, an incredible edible grass that can be juiced into a Wheatgrass Shot, or milled down into a fine green powder that’s used to create a multipurpose product for both humans and animals.
Who would have thought that the innocuous, delicate little wheatgrass could pack such a powerful punch when it comes to health benefits? Lots of testimonies and studies have emerged over the years on the benefits of consuming raw wheatgrass juice for health conditions including the common colds and coughs, constipation and colitis, skin conditions, infections and inflammations. It is also increasingly being researched for heart diseases and cancer.
“Wheatgrass is an amazing superfood due to its many health properties and curative powers,” says pharmacist Ling Mooi Li, founder of popular premium fresh fruit juice and smoothies company Juice Works Malaysia.
“Wheatgrass contains a rich supply of chlorophyll and helps to fights free radicals ravaging our bodies. It is also a natural source of vitamins A, C, E, K and B; minerals and enzymes including iron, magnesium, calcium, potassium, zinc and amino acids.
“Although wheatgrass is popular today, it is not a new fad, as ancient civilisations dating back centuries have consumed it raw. Our forefathers have realised the immense benefits even then as a nutrient-dense plant food.”
Juice Works is the first in Malaysia to offer pure and wholesome wheatgrass that are freshly harvested and juiced on the spot upon orders, and served in small shots with a wedge of orange to balance its slightly bitter taste, or added into a juice or smoothie.
The wheatgrass offered by Juice Works Malaysia are grown and harvested right before the customer to preserve the rich supplies of living enzymes in each blade of grass.
“I’d advise a slow and steady start should you wish to incorporate wheatgrass in your daily diet. Just take one ounce a day and gradually build it to two ounces. But because wheatgrass is so potent, all you really need is just two ounces a day to enjoy its many benefits. It’s also best to take it on an empty stomach where it could be better absorbed,” says Ling.
