The purpose of this review is to summarize the literature available on the extract known as wheatgrass juice derived from Wheat grass which is the mature shoot of the plant Triticum aestivum Linn. belonging to the family Gramineae. In general, Wheat Grass Juice (WGJ) is an extract squeezed from the mature sprouts of wheat seeds. Green Blood Therapy is the use of wheat grass juice (WGJ) to cure multiple diseases. The name “green blood” of wheat grass is attributable to its high chlorophyll…
