Research shows that wheatgrass contains numerous bioactives that help “normalise” damaged tissue cells. To take the extract orally, hold it in your mouth for a minute before swallowing. This will enable better absorption of the bioactives into the bloodstream compared with simply tossing it down your throat where they will be destroyed by stomach acid.

When applying wheatgrass to your skin, again, use a small amount and spread it lightly over the affected area – no more than once a day. In some cases, e.g. leg and foot ulcers, only apply once a week.
