WHAT IS WHEATGRASS?
Wheatgrass is quickly becoming one of the most popular and widely used superfood supplements on the market today. It is consumed in a wide variety of forms, in shakes and smoothies, tablets and capsules as well as a fine, ground powder. However, all forms can be traced back to one origin, the common wheat plant, Triticum Aestivum.
The rising popularity of wheatgrass is most likely due primarily to the rich composite of phytonutrients and antioxidants it contains. In fact, wheatgrass is commonly touted for the proposed liver-detoxifying effects and so is used in ‘Detoxes’. However, the research in support of these effects has not yet been established (reference) and these claims are not evidence-based.
Wheatgrass also provides 17 different amino acids, eight of which are essential (khan et al., 2015). This simply refers to need for humans to consume these amino acids from external food sources, as we cannot produce them in the body.

POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF WHEATGRASS
Antioxidants – Wheatgrass is a rich source of several antioxidants, including carotenoids, flavanols and alkaloids. Antioxidants are important minerals that help to mitigate inflammation and to reduce free radical formation. These free radicals accumulate when we engage in unhealthy behaviours such as smoking, drinking alcohol or being overly stressed. Therefore, by mobilizing and neutralizing them, these antioxidants are crucial to long-term health. Some studies have shown increased levels of important antioxidants in the blood following supplementing wheatgrass.
Inflammation – Inflammation is a common side-effect of illness and disease, smoking, anxiety, depression, but also ritualistic exercise. It is a protective mechanism of the body that, if continuously activated, can lead to increased damage, pain and risk of further illness. Antioxidants such as Vitamins C and E in addition peroxidases, superoxide dismutases and cytochromes all help to detoxify and repair damaged cells and tissue (2).
Cancer Treatment Aid – Despite a lack of a strong evidence base, preliminary pilot trials have uncovered some possible roles of wheatgrass in both the prevention of cancer and the deleterious side-effects of the treatment, chemotherapy (3,4). Some of the proposed mechanisms of these effects are attributed to the high antioxidant and chlorophyll content of wheatgrass (5). Antioxidants help to reduce cell toxicity, while chlorophyll increases heme production in the bone marrow for more efficient blood transport (6). It is important that proposed anti-cancer effects are interpreted with extreme caution, as there have been no studies, to date, demonstrating a reduction in cancer risk or prevention mechanism of wheatgrass in human subjects. Some “test tube” (in vitro) and animal studies have shown reductions in the spreading of isolated cancer cells such as leukemia (7,5).
