...and how can you easily include it in your diet

Let's explore the benefits of drinking wheatgrass juice since this "superfood" is highlighted at every juice bar and healthfood store you enter.

Throughout this site, I make mention to the importance of having a balanced pH level and how to help alkalize your body. Everybody knows how uncomfortable heart burn and indigestion can be; being too acidic is unhealthy overall.

Wheatgrass has an alkalizing effect on the body due to its high amounts of calcium, potassium, and magnesium. These minerals help balance and maintain your body's pH.

So in this section...

We'll discuss the facts of wheatgrass nutrition and where to buy wheatgrass. If you're interested in growing your own, you'll find some basic tips on how to grow wheatgrass.

And... If you decide to grow or purchase it, I've included reviews to help you pick the best wheatgrass juicer for your budget.
