A prominent researcher on wheatgrass, Dr. Thelma Arthur has presented research which indicates that the consumption of wheatgrass juice can help in detoxifying the blood and strengthening the immune system. Chlorophyll plays a key role in detoxifying the liver which is where blood purification takes place.

Wheatgrass is mostly chlorophyll - approximately 78%. Chlorophyll has a very similar molecular structure to hemoglobin, the molecule which carries the oxygen in the human blood stream. Chlorophyll has been shown to help boost hemoglobin production and thus help the body carry more oxygen in the blood. Chlorophyll also has been shown to provide some protection from carcinogens by strengthening the cells. "In a study reported in the Journal Mutation Research comparing the anticancer effect of chlorophyll to beta-carotene, and vitamins A, C and E, chlorophyll was proven to be a more effective antimutagen than any of them." Chlorophyll also has anti-bacterial properties and can help decrease the growth and development of unhealthy bacteria in the body.

As early as 1940, Benjamin Gruskin, MD was published in The American Journal of Surgery recommending that chlorophyll be used for its antiseptic benefits. Dr. Gruskin`s article suggested numerous clinical uses for chlorophyll including: "to clear up foul-smelling odors, neutralize strep infections, heal wounds, hasten skin grafting, cure chronic sinusitis, overcome chronic inner ear inflammation and infections, reduce varicose veins and heal leg ulcers, eliminate impetigo and other scabby eruptions, heal rectal sores, successfully treat inflammation of the uterine cervix, get rid of parasitic vaginal infections, reduce typhoid fever and cure advanced pyorrhea in many cases."

Wheatgrass is considered a "super food" by some and has a large number of beneficial aspects. The health benefits of wheatgrass and chlorophyll appear to be tremendous with scientific study and research into its benefits continuing.

Green barley leaves are extremely alkaline, so digesting them can help to keep the body's alkaline and acidity ratio in balance. Human cells cannot function adequately if the pH range is not maintained within a narrow range. Most processed foods are acidic, and when we consume too many of them the acid/alkaline balance is upset. Such disturbances in acid alkaline balance may exacerbate fatigue.
