Wheatgrass is a food that served freeze-dried or fresh. This is opposed to wheat malt which is convectively dried. It is prepared from the freshly sprouted leaves of the common wheat plant.
Wheatgrass contains enzymes, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and chlorophyll like most plants do.
It has many different health benefits such as providing supplemental nutrition and having curative properties, however, the scientific basis of these claims has not been proven.
Wheatgrass is available in tablet form, as frozen juice and powder and as fresh produce.
You can also get wheatgrass to grow in your homes which can also be juiced.
It is also accessible ad a liquid herbal supplement, a massage lotion, gel, cream, and spray. So it is quite a versatile plant.
Can cats eat wheatgrass?
It is not a natural food that cats are normally attracted to but you may have a kitty that is quite partial to it.
The good news is that wheatgrass is quite good for your cat. It can help to get your cat’s digestion going and it helps their constipation too.
So if they have a hairball then chewing wheatgrass and putting it through their system can help break constipation starters such as hairballs and expel them.
Wheatgrass can also help get rid of toxins from their body as well.
