True Leaf Market has a long history with all things wheatgrass. It is an amazing source of vital nutrients that can be accessed through juicing, or directly eaten by your pets.
Wheatgrass juice helps with digestion, eliminates toxins, is an excellent source of many vitamins and minerals, and strengthens the body’s immune system, among many other health benefits. See more benefits of wheatgrass juice.
Wheatgrass is also beneficial to pets, and they love it! Wheatgrass reduces constipation and hairballs, minimizes or eliminates bad breath, and adds fiber and micronutrients to your pet’s diet. Growing your own wheatgrass for your pet ensures that the grass they chew and consume is pesticide free, unlike whatever might be outside on the lawn.
Wheatgrass is a superfood packed with nutrients and low in calories. To maximize the nutritional benefit, wheatgrass is harvested young then pressed and squeezed to make wheatgrass juice, which is then drunk raw as a shot or in smoothies or green drinks. To get the full benefit of wheatgrass and not lose any nutritional value, optimally wheatgrass should be freshly grown, then harvested and juiced, ideally consumed within 6 minutes of harvesting if possible to get the absolute full nutritional benefit (but drinking it anytime is good too!).
