Wheatgrass Shots: Detoxify, Rejuvenate and Energize Your Life

Improve your energy levels, immune system, and your overall health. A wheatgrass shot a day truly keeps the doctor away.

There was a time in my life when I was spending quite a bit on various things like B12 Shots: The Newest Energy Booster, smoothies, and even wheatgrass shots. If you can’t tell already, I’m a big proponent of any exceptionally healthy thing I can add to my life.

I had never heard of wheatgrass shots until I began to frequent Robeks a local smoothie shop. It sounded interesting and I began asking and doing a little research to find out if I should try them. One day a friend came with me and told me I should order one. And, I’m really glad I did.

They are amazing! It was like a quick boost of energy. But, beware, if you are sensitive to strong tasting things or have not had very many greens in your diet, the strong consistency of fiber may be a bit of a jolt to your system. They have a poignant taste that some people really enjoy; for me it took a bit of getting used to. I believe this is why they are usually coupled with a juice/smoothie chaser; if you need one you are not alone!

What is a wheatgrass shot exactly and why might you want to try one?

The tiny drink is the concentrated juice from wheat plants and is believed to be able to cure digestive problems, boost the immune system, fight cancer agents, detoxify the body, and repair DNA among other things such as lessening the symptoms of menopause.

A 1 ounce shout of wheatgrass is equal to approximately 2 ½ pounds of consuming leafy green vegetables. It contains potassium, magnesium, iron, protein, Vitamin B12, C and E, as well as calcium, beta carotene, and phosphorus.

Because wheatgrass shots are packed with so many nutrients you are sure to enjoy more energy, improved digestion, increased mental clarity, a rejuvenation of your blood through detoxification, enhancements in your hair both in glow and growth, and so much more.

I like to think of wheatgrass shots like replacing the overused sludgy oil in your car with the top of the line oil. It makes every facet of your car function 110% better, keeping it running longer, working more efficiently, and in the end in need of less maintenance and future expense.

What is the recommended dosage?

If you want to take them occasionally for general well being, have one or two ounce servings, one to two times a day.

If you feel your body is in need of a great detoxification and healing regime, try one or two ounces of wheatgrass no more than four times a day.

(When trying anything new, if you experience any adverse symptoms be sure to consult your local physician. Remember, these shots are high in fiber content. I am not a doctor myself and am only reporting facts I have read, heard, and or experienced firsthand.)

A few more interesting facts about Wheatgrass

I just recently discovered that you can use the juice to relieve sunburns, preventing itching and even work as a disinfectant cleaning cuts and burns. They can also act to help tighten loose skin and as a cure to scalp conditions! Wow, who knew?

  1. Thanks for this great write! Cheers!

  2. That sounds like a really healthy supplement. I am going to look out for it. Good work.


  3. Thank you for sharing this informative information. I have heard of wheatgrass, but never really knew much about it. I like it.

  4. I heard of this stuff in a comedy I watched once,they sold it in a health food store.But you gave me the information about it,interesting reading.

  5. Sounds good but may not be good for me because I have wheat intolerances. I don’t know if the plants/leaves are the same as the wheat, but I don’t want to find out the hard way.

    Thanks for sharing this helpful health article.

  6. The properties of this seem to make sense with what is known about wheat. This is something I will ask my doctor about; it will be intersting to hear what she thinks (she is so upbeat and contemporary in her viewpoints.)

  7. Great article and fantastic information! Thanks.

  8. Yeah….now if only I can get and keep one down :)

  9. Interesting piece.

  10. Not for me. I’ll stick with my vitamin water.

  11. While others seem to do better with whole wheat, I get stomach aches. I prefer barley and rye, but I did bring some home to try, and my cats beat me to it. They loved eating the wheat grass plant. They were funnier than heck pulling the blades out by the root and eating them.

  12. It is great.

  13. Thanks for sharing this,
    I will have to look into it,
    since I am starting my new
    eating habits tomorrow,
    I am looking more into healthy eating,
    and anything like the wheatgrass shots
    that will help out!
    Great write (:

  14. Excellent!..that was great and very informative article about health/ nutrition. Well done and thanks a lot for sharing this great tips..

  15. My friend swears by wheatgrass and I’ve never really looked into it but I think I might try some too now. Very informative article, thank you.

  16. Sounds good, where do you purchase it? Well written article.

  17. Very healthy. Thanks for this post :)

  18. Cleanse, Alkalize, and Nourish! Get all three by consuming one drink and you can
    take it with you when you travel, go to the gym or anywhere for a quick boost! In this highly nutritional, organic powdered product, 4 packets are equivalent to one tray of wheatgrass. Another important thing the packets are used upon opening, not like a jar, which each time it is opened oxidizes and loses its nutritional value. This product is cold dried to maintain its live enzymes and nutrients when combined with water.
    This is the only wheatgrass powder in the world grown Aeroponically in 100% purified oxygen; soil free, fungus free and pollution free. The roots contain SOD, cancer fighting agents and 13 amino acids not found in the blades
    Another plus, by combining the roots with the blades, the taste is not strong and nauseous as juiced wheatgrass. You can drink this straight (in 8 to 12 ounces of water), add to your morning juice or shake and enjoy! Even kids love it!
    Try a free sample, simply go to and fill out the form on the home page. Let me know what you think!

  19. We have Wheat grass here. Green liquid :( But its benefits is really good eh? Thanks for the info :)
