Let’s talk about the interesting benefits of wheatgrass.

Typical wheat products like bread and pasta are made with the seed, or grain, of the wheat plant. Wheatgrass is the actual plant that the seed grows on.

The type of wheatgrass used in wheatgrass juice is at an early stage—usually less than ten days old.

I think how healthy wheatgrass is for you depends on what it’s grown on. Wheatgrass grown on soil may be more beneficial than wheatgrass grown in other ways.

Wheatgrass juice powder may also be more beneficial than wheatgrass powder products. Wheatgrass juice powder is more concentrated because it doesn’t contain any fiber.

One of the advantages of wheatgrass juice powder over wheatgrass powder is that people can consume it even if they can’t consume fiber.

Unlike grain, wheatgrass is gluten-free and is low in anti-nutrients, tannins, and oxalates. Wheatgrass juice powder grown on good soil is low-carb and rich in vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, and amino acids.

However, I consume wheatgrass juice powder for two main reasons:
1. 70% of wheatgrass is chlorophyll
2. It’s rich in phytonutrients

Both chlorophyll and phytonutrients have a wealth of beneficial properties. Research is also being done on using wheatgrass for a genetic type of anemia called thalassemia.

Growing your own wheatgrass to make wheatgrass juice is inexpensive and pretty simple. Give it a try!

    So grateful for you Doc, just whizzed up a batch for me and the kid.

      That’s great. Wishing you all good health.

    I was anemic during pregnancy and started drinking wheat grass and my iron levels went back to normal. Also my first time ever consuming it, I had the best energy boost I’ve ever felt… after the initial nausea from drinking it on an empty stomach 😅

    • Don’t Fit on April 12, 2023 at 2:49 pm

      I’m thinking you must be vegan. Correct?

    • xtinacg on April 12, 2023 at 3:49 pm

      @Don’t Fit nope not at all (never have been) I ❤️ meat ☺️ even during my pregnancy I was eating meat, no problems there…. But I was not eating a healthy diet either. I enjoyed way too many unhealthy sugary carbs 🙈😭 anemia can happen more easily during pregnancy I believe. I’m no expert either.

    • LiveYourLifeExtra on April 12, 2023 at 5:05 pm

      @xtinacg carbs and sugar cause inflammation and inflammation can cause an iron deficiency

    • xtinacg on April 12, 2023 at 5:48 pm

      @LiveYourLifeExtra it definitely caused it during my pregnancy then because I was not avoiding any carbs nor sugar at that time. Thanks for the explanation 👍

    • Virginia Cazares on April 13, 2023 at 7:19 am

      @Don’t Fit I honestly don’t see Dr. Berg, identifying with any specific title whether that’s spiritual, political, or biologically. However, I’ve been wrong before😊

  3. Sabrina and husband on April 12, 2023 at 10:17 am

    I think molokhia ملوخيه in the Middle Eastern cuisine is exactly like wheatgrass. Dr Berg should cook it and tell us if it’s a good alternative 🌱😊 yet I still think if it’s a product from Dr Berg ( wheatgrass) it’s going to be brilliant 🥤😋

    • fsdxfsd11 on April 12, 2023 at 11:09 am

      Aka ‘Jute’ mallow, the best energy booster ever! Also eaten across Africa in the form of soups/stews.

    • Sabrina and husband on April 12, 2023 at 11:37 am

      @Janet Saldanha Thanks for the info.

    • Sabrina and husband on April 12, 2023 at 11:44 am

      ​@fsdxfsd11 I assume other African countries have it as well, not only North Africa, and it is a sort of mallow. I guess that what ancient Egyptians got the name from Malo changed to Molo- Khia , and Khia in hierograohic meant : poison 😅 First Egyptians thought it was poisonous because it has a laxative effect, then the story says profit Joseph was the first who tried to actually cook and it turned out to be delicious!

    • E S on April 12, 2023 at 7:44 pm

      Molokhia is full of oxalates.
      English name is Mallow. or Malva

    • fsdxfsd11 on April 12, 2023 at 10:40 pm

      @Sabrina and husband interesting

  4. Alyce P. on April 12, 2023 at 10:23 am

    Lots of interesting ideas in this video that I plan to research further. Thank you Dr Berg!

    • Dr. Eric Berg DC on April 12, 2023 at 12:30 pm

      You’re welcome. Hope the information here will help you.

      Me, too. Will look into wheatgrass for my smoothies. Thanks, Dr. Berg.

  5. Miss Taylor on April 12, 2023 at 10:35 am

    My health completely changed with no/very low carbs. No more hives, bloating, hypoglycemia. Thank you, Dr. Berg.

      I ordered wheat grass seeds🤣🤣🤣🤣

  7. Fractal Automata on April 12, 2023 at 10:36 am

    Quitting wheat has definitely improved my health — my intestinal discomfort is mostly gone. If only I had learned about this 20 years ago, I could have maybe avoided lots of unnecessary suffering. But in world’s wheat basket, wheat is everywhere.

    • Tushar Saini on April 12, 2023 at 6:41 pm

      ​@Thamizh T it is. Just excess of everything is not fine.

    • Manuel Aguirre on April 12, 2023 at 7:53 pm

      I think American wheat is bred with a higher gluten content than European wheat. Some ppl claim they go to Europe and have no bread issues. Also fermenting the dough before baking neutralizes some of the gluten from what ive heard such as sourdough.

    • Maria CANCER on April 13, 2023 at 3:34 pm

    • oklahomaisok on April 13, 2023 at 5:11 pm

      I had joint pain and it lessened greatly two weeks after going on a gluten-free diet.

  8. Cheri Goodall on April 12, 2023 at 11:18 am

    Thank you for this! I have beta thalassemia and didn’t know how wheat grass could help me. Definitely will start growing my own. Will need to research how to extract the juice from it…

  9. MightyMouse350 on April 12, 2023 at 1:58 pm

    this would explain why I feel more energised after a wheat grass shot. where I used to live there’d be a juice place in every mall. Tray of fresh wheat grass like shown, wearing gloves they cut off a bunch and juice it, done. I never expect any juice or supplement to make me feel better. But this always did. 👍

    • oklahomaisok on April 13, 2023 at 5:14 pm

      The chlorophyll gets oxygen to your heart helping you feel more energized. Good stuff.

  10. Pennsylvania Mom on April 12, 2023 at 2:33 pm

    I’m sure it’s great for lots of people, but when I started adding it to smoothies my girls & I got really sick (stomach pain/diarrhea). Kale also makes us really sick. We switched to all-purpose einkorn flour for bread & baking and all of our wheat/gluten sensitivity went away.

    • Cynthia Crawford on April 12, 2023 at 7:14 pm

      They both tear me up. I usually puke it up so no diarrhea

    • luvslyfe1 on April 13, 2023 at 4:44 am

      Same here. I don’t tolerate hybridized wheat, but I am fine with organic einkorn flour.

    • King Jaffri on April 13, 2023 at 5:27 am

      @luvslyfe1 where do you buy it from please?

    • dan holm on April 13, 2023 at 7:57 pm

      @King Jaffri $$$$$ must all be millionaires here.!..

  11. Radical Cartoons on April 12, 2023 at 2:53 pm

    I found that my bread addiction was tied to the addiction to the excess fats I was eating with it, butter, cheese etc. So I’ve adjusted my diet to have protein every day (eggs, or fish, or beans) and sprinkle crushed nuts in soups and on salad, for a healthier fat. Its been x1 week and so far it’s working, I only had 1 slice of bread with fat in 7 days. My goal is to give up bread completely.

    • Rosemarie Teasdale on April 12, 2023 at 3:14 pm

      u cn do it! i have a slice of bread evry morning now ,i dont missed it all

    • Robert Fyfe on April 13, 2023 at 12:39 am

      I quit bread entirely ! you can do it !

    • Niranjan Paul on April 14, 2023 at 8:57 am


  12. Elizabeth Jordan on April 12, 2023 at 3:53 pm

    I work on the farms that grow your wheatgrass products. I have learned that these green drinks are also the best electrolyte drinks, as well. This iced drink is the most satisfying and energizing drink for working all day in the hot, windy west desert of Utah. I get this green powder for free, though – because I have connections with the owners. However, I do buy your other products. I love them.

    • Dr. Eric Berg DC on April 12, 2023 at 6:18 pm

      That’s awesome! Thanks for sharing!

    • peace on April 13, 2023 at 12:02 am

      Thanks for the infomation

    • Karina Abad on April 13, 2023 at 1:58 am

      are they pesticide free?

    • -- on April 13, 2023 at 2:44 am

      @Karina Abad Yes, 100%.

  13. Joe K on April 12, 2023 at 4:19 pm

    Severe burning pain in my knees for 20 years. Stopped consumption of wheat, pain gone in a few weeks. Still pain free 5 years later. I know what I know for myself. Can’t speak for others

    • oklahomaisok on April 13, 2023 at 5:13 pm

      I had needle-like pain in my hip joints. I dreaded even going to the store and buying groceries, it was getting to the point of me riding around in an electric grocery cart scooter and I didn’t want to get that started. I went off of gluten and it took two weeks for the pain to go away.

  14. Marian Hoover on April 12, 2023 at 6:43 pm

    It’s been a while, but I used to drink the water as I sprouted the wheat berries. My skin, hair and nails loved it. Getting back into that practice ASAP. For the B vits, fermentation, and C. I’m thinking all that is needed for life is present in the seed. The berries I would put on a salad raw. Tasted like fresh bread to me!!

  15. Karen Plante on April 12, 2023 at 11:24 pm

    I have EOE, and wheat is the culprit! Also, corn. Its a Total nightmare! It is crazy how inflammatory wheat is. I’m so glad they finally figured out what was causing my problem! And thanking God, I found Dr. BERG!! It’s been a life changing experience listening to your informative videos! Everything you have taught I have tried to implement into my diet and the changes have been monumental! Lost 60lbs, nit even close to being a diabetic anymore, now to work on other issue!! Cheers to you with a cup of green tea, Dr. BERG!!

  16. Will Griffith on April 13, 2023 at 2:18 am

    I’m 32 now, I’ve had joint pain, especially in my knees since I was 14. At first I thought it was just growing pains, then I thought I had bad genetics for joints. Eventually, I came across the idea of perhaps my diet was effecting me, as when I traveled I noticed my inflammation levels changed in conjunction with my eating habits. Fast forward to finding keto and wow what a difference. After about 2 weeks, I noticed that my wrist pain that I’ve had since freshman year in college was gone (I broke my wrist and it had bothered me since) and then I noticed that going up and down stairs no longer bothered my knees. I kept doing keto for a few more weeks and then wanted to test it. So I went on a carb heavy diet. Nearly a week later I could barely turn my wrist it hurt so bad. I did several more keto on and off rotations and the results were the same every time. On keto my joint pain is nearly non-existent and on my old diet the inflammation is nearly crippling in comparison. I would challenge anyone who suffers from chronic pain to try keto and give it a month to see full results. You won’t regret it…

    • Forest To Farm on April 14, 2023 at 7:48 am

      Same basic experience here. I am 60 though 😂. I have not actually went off keto. I do cheat from time to time and I see changes. Dr Bergs version of Keto works for me.

  17. Tricia C on April 13, 2023 at 3:07 am

    Another fabulous and informative video for us from Dr Berg. Thank you so much!Going to start growing the wheat grass this weekend. I had NO idea of All the benefits!! God bless you muchly/hugely/bunches!

  18. Veronica Grier on April 13, 2023 at 5:19 am

    Thank you very much, Dr. Berg! I happen to be a carrier of alpha thalassemia, and now, thanks to you (disclosure statement so noted), I can try your wheatgrass juice powder, get better, and be healthy. Many thanks for this information. It’s much appreciated. All the best, Sir!

  19. William Sydney on April 13, 2023 at 6:52 pm

    Dr Berg I absolutely love the videos you make especially when you use natural remedies 😁

  20. Marie-Louise Art on April 13, 2023 at 7:54 pm

    Totally agree with you Dr Eric. I find it very helpful hearing your views around wheat. Your fact about chlorophyll 😮
