Acne is due to a disturbance of sebaceous glands which are under hormonal control. It appears that wheatgrass may influence or modulate this mechanism.
This young woman suffered from chronic acne for 10 years. Note marked skin disfigurement on her chin. (Fig. 1.)
Various skin applications, antibiotics and anti-acne drugs did little to improve her condition.
By contrast, after only six weeks’ treatment with wheatgrass extract, her skin returned to normal. (Fig. 3.)
Note: It is important not to overtreat with wheatgrass. Also, apply only on alternate days for best results – and persevere.
