The Dangers of Wheatgrass

  1. On this website we regularly pay attention to so-called 'super food'. These are foods that have certain properties that make them very good for our health in one way or another.

  1. Many natural food products do indeed contain substances that, when consumed in the correct doses, can help us prevent or combat disease. And it is often better to get these substances from natural sources than from the synthetic variants that are sometimes used in supplements and vitamin pills. But you have to be careful with it.

Could it be dangerous?

  1. Just because something is natural does not mean that it cannot be very powerful and may also pose health hazards. So although you can usually find articles here about the health benefits of certain foods, plants or herbs, this time we would like to devote an article to the dangers of a plant food product, especially wheatgrass.

  1. Wheatgrass or Triticum Aestivum is a natural food product that has been attributed many positive properties by some health gurus. You can make it yourself or you can buy it ready-made at specialist healthy food stores.

  1. Wheatgrass contains about 70% chlorophyll, which some say would help purify the body of toxins and improve blood circulation and digestion of food. However, there are no definitive and thorough scientific studies to support these claims yet. There are, however, a number of doctors and scientists who have questions about this drug and who point out a number of dangers.

  1. Some people are allergic to wheatgrass juice. Wheatgrass does not contain gluten, according to the Natural Standard website. This means that people with allergies to other grain products will often not be allergic to the juice that is pressed from young wheat grass. But the plant does contain a lot of cellulose and many people have difficulties digesting it.

  1. If you have an allergic reaction after drinking wheatgrass (usually within a few minutes after consumption) do not try this again. A second allergic attack is often worse than the first and can end badly.

  1. Wheatgrass contains a lot of vitamin K, which is known to cause blood clots in our body. For this reason, the US National Health Council does not recommend the use of wheatgrass to people taking medications to prevent thromboses and blood clots. After all, consuming wheatgrass can stop these drugs from working properly and increase the risk of heart attack or stroke.

  1. By the way, you should not only be careful with wheatgrass if you are a patient at risk for thromboses: spinach and kale also contain a lot of vitamin K. Talk to your doctor if you are unsure whether you are in the risk group. You shouldn't drop these foods completely, but you should eat them in small portions and not too often.

  1. During a pregnancy women have to pay attention to a lot of things anyway and there are many products that they should not consume for a while. In fact, they should talk to their doctor if they want to try any herbal remedy or food for health reasons.

  1. Because wheatgrass has not been sufficiently researched to determine its possible side effects on the developing fetus, responsible doctors and health specialists will always advise against drinking the juice of wheatgrass during pregnancy. Even if you are breastfeeding, you should continue to avoid this, also because the production of wheatgrass is less strictly controlled than some other food products and it sometimes appears to contain pollutants.

Precautionary principle

  1. As long as there is no thorough scientific research on certain substances, you should always start from the so-called 'precautionary principle'. This means that you have to be very careful with it until it has been proven to be really harmless or even good for you.

  1. This is clearly not yet the case for wheatgrass and following the precautionary principle we must therefore state that if you really want to try it out, you should do this carefully and in small doses. After all, it is entirely at your own risk and your health is actually too valuable to experiment with just like that.
