Why is wheatgrass juice like blood?

 Often referred to as ‘Green Blood’ as it contains high levels of chlorophyll which plants need to survive; chlorophyll has a very similar structure to haemoglobin which humans need to survive.

Both are composed of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen and both are responsible for colouring as chlorophyll gives plants their green colour and haemoglobin gives blood the red colour. The main difference is that the metallic element in haemoglobin is iron whilst in chlorophyll it is magnesium.

The pH of blood and Wheatgrass Juice is also the same i.e., 7.4. Therefore, Wheatgrass Juice gets quickly absorbed in the blood and carries high levels of oxygen which is especially powerful in assisting the body to restore abnormalities. It is often used to treat blood disorders such as anaemia and thalassemia.

Containing high levels of Vitamins, A, B5, B12 & E Wheatgrass Juice is high in nutrients and low in calories and has. containing up to 70% chlorophyll, which is an important blood builder.
