Benefits in Anemia: Chlorophyll present in wheatgrass is similar to hemoglobin, and this could help improve red blood cell creation in the body.
This increase in RBC count can treat anemia. Anemia results in decreased supply of oxygen to vital organs, body tissues, and this result in fatigue. Patients with chronic fatigue found their energy levels improving with intake of wheatgrass.
This is because the oxygenation of tissues improved. It was found that if beta-thalassemia patients consumed 100ml wheatgrass juice per day the requirement of blood transfusions by these patients reduced by at least 50%. Recent studies have found that wheatgrass juice did not provide significant advantage to patients already undergoing blood transfusions.
