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. Wheatgrass is loaded with nutrients, and limited (but promising!) research suggests it could serve up some impressive health benefits. If you’re cool with the grassy taste, it could be a good addition to a smoothie or juice. Just be careful if you have a known issue with wheat or gluten, and avoid it if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.
