Do It Yourself
Wheatgrass seed can easily be grown at home and the juice extracted from the leaves. There are many types of juicing machines available to produce your own juice. Numerous providers of fresh juice, wheatgrass powder and various other forms of wheatgrass are also available.
To gain maximum benefit from your homegrown plant, the leaves must be cut just above the seed mat that forms at the base of the plant. This must be done before the top of the leaf begins to divide – the so-called “jointing” phase” – which takes about 10-12 days.
Wheatgrass juice can be kept in the refrigerator for several days or more and still retain its bioactivity.
My Company, Wheatgrass Pty. Ltd. is based in Australia where we extract and process concentrated wheatgrass juice from freshly cut wheatgrass sprouts. This extract is significantly more potent than fresh juice and is sold under the “Dr Wheatgrass” brand for skin recovery, and a liquid wheatgrass supplement. Only a small amount of the extract is required when applied to the body or taken orally.
These products are available online in the following countries.
- Hong Kong
- New Zealand
- South Africa
- United Arab Emirates
