What is the recommended amount of wheatgrass juice per day?
The initial recommended daily intake of juiced wheatgrass is 30mls (a shot) It is important that this measurement is exact and is not exceeded, especially in the initial stages as your body is adjusting to the potent effects of the wheatgrass. As your body adjusts to wheatgrass, you can begin to increase the dosage to whatever you find works best for you.
Wheatgrass is best taken on a empty stomach but not essential.The most effective and tasty method of incorporating wheatgrass into your diet is to add it to a glass of freshly juiced fruit and vegetables. Your body will begin to detoxify and remove the harmful build up of toxins in your body. This initial detox stage can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. Once your body has removed this build up of excess toxins and free radicals, you will begin to notice the benefits of juicing wheatgrass such as:
- A significant improvement in your overall well being
- Increased energy levels
- Clear mindedness
- Clear skin, healthy complexion
- Healthy hair
- Reduced cravings for junk food
- Reduced body odour
For the vast majority of people, juicing wheatgrass will be greatly beneficial and will not produce any side effects at all. However, for a small number of people wheatgrass can cause them to feel nauseous in the initial stages. This is generally due to the detoxification effect that occurs as the body rapidly removes impurities and toxins. Once the toxins are removed from the body, these “detox effects” will subside.
When juicing wheatgrass, it will begin to oxidize quickly, so it is best to consume it as soon as possible. It can however be refrigerated for 2-3 days.
