Yes! Wheatgrass juice cannot be missing from a healthy and balanced diet because most of the food we eat lacks natural nutrients. Instead, unfortunately, there are still many E numbers, fragrances, colorings and flavors, preservatives, pesticides and added hormones in the food. Natural foods are often improperly processed or factory cooked, which destroys most of their nutritional properties.
This is not the case with wheatgrass juice as it does not need to be cooked and can be drunk raw! It gives us the vitamins, minerals and enzymes we need in one of the freshest and natural forms. It is simply one of the healthiest drinks, and it is also very tasty due to the sweet taste that this green drink has.
