Does wheatgrass juice lower blood pressure?

Wheatgrass juice contains all known minerals, in addition to 17 amino acids, vitamin A, B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin E, and vitamin K.

All of these nutrients work together in the body to reduce blood pressure naturally by expanding capillaries, whilst flushing bad cholesterol out of the body and stabilise blood sugar.

High blood pressure sometimes known as hypertension can have many consequences including increasing the risk of heart attacks and strokes, but it can also damage the body in more subtle ways. For example, limiting blood supply to the brain which can cause cognitive impairment, kidney damage, eye damage, sexual dysfunction and more. If there are steps to take to reduce the likelihood of high blood pressure then it is a great thing to do. 

Consuming wheatgrass juice regularly can impact your blood pressure in a positive way. The chlorophyll present in the plant, mimics the haemoglobin present in the human body. This factor helps normalise your blood pressure. It also helps purify your blood and improve circulation

Oxidative stress can be another cause of hypertension. As free radicals damage the membranes of the vascular tissues, it ultimately impairs their ability to relax and causes them to contract.

Oxidative stress can arise due to high levels of fat or cholesterol in the body. Wheatgrass juice contains high levels of vitamins A, B5, B12 and E along with powerful plant sterols. It helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels.

One study looked at the effects in rabbits fed a high-fat diet. After 10 weeks, supplementing with wheatgrass, it helped lower total cholesterol and increase “good” HDL cholesterol, compared to a control group.
