2. Reduces cholesterol levels is another benefit.
Cholesterol is a substance that is a waxy that is produced in the body. It produces bile and makes hormones, so some cholesterol is needed. Too much cholesterol can be produced in the body. When too much is in the body, it will block the blood that needs to flow through the body, which can cause heart disease.
Animal studies have been conducted where they reduced cholesterol levels. Rats for instance who had high cholesterol in the beginning, but once they consumed wheatgrass, their cholesterol levels lowered. Wheatgrass is as good as taking prescription medicine for cholesterol.
Before stopping your cholesterol medicine, ask your doctor if you can try wheatgrass to see if it will lower your cholesterol. If the doctor agrees and it works, you will be able to permanently stop taking the prescription medication, which can give you side effects, if taken long-term.
