For the past 5 years I have been a huge proponent of wheat grass juice. Ever since I was stricken with a very nasty bout of mono, I was turned on to the healing properties of wheat grass juice. My major ailment was fatigue and an inability to fight virus and heal quickly.
I can not speak highly enough of wheat grass juice in my daily diet. I can literally see and feel a difference when I am not consistent in my intake of this nutrient rich megavitamin shot. My hair is healthy, I am more energized and balanced.
