Is wheatgrass juice good for heart health?

 High cholesterol, high blood pressure and being overweight are not the best for heart health! Wheatgrass Juice can help these conditions and therefore support good heart health.

Cholesterol:

Research shows that eating superfoods, high in vitamins B3 and B5, helps lower cholesterol levels without the need for medication. Naturally occurring phytosterols and phytostanols in plants also reduce low-density lipoprotein - sometimes referred to as ‘bad’ cholesterol. 

Wheatgrass juice contains high levels of vitamins A, B5, B12 and E along with powerful plant sterols. It helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels.

Blood pressure:

High blood pressure could lead to heart diseases. This is often aided by having an unhealthy diet with little physical activity to counter it. Wheatgrass juice is rich in vitamins minerals and amino acids, so is one of the best food items you can consume to help your body in reducing blood pressure.

Some studies have been conducted on the benefits of wheatgrass for heart diseases. One such study published in the May 2010 issue of "Methods, and Findings in Experimental and Clinical Pharmacology" found that supplementation with wheatgrass in subjects consuming high-fat diets resulted in improving blood cholesterol levels. This study involved 30 animal subjects and the authors noted that the antioxidant effects of wheatgrass appeared to be responsible for the decreasing of total blood cholesterol levels and increasing the good HDL cholesterol as well as vitamin C blood levels.

Weight loss:

As wheatgrass juice is a whole food it is nutritionally dense, meaning that it can help you feel full for longer. This can be great for those trying to lose weight as it can stave off hunger and reduce snacking.
