Question about wheat grass, why is my stomach hurting??
When i go to whole foods i get wheat grass shoots and im fine even with an empty stomach. Then i just bought the vitamix(ouch),LOL and im blending the hole grass with other vegetables and after drinking it in a empty stomach it
starts bothering me. Why??
A girl told my husband that eating the grass is toxic?? is this true???
Don't eat the grass!
but why?????? =-/
All grass is safe and good for you, but humans do not have the ability to digest grass fiber that is why cows have like 5 or 6 compartments in their stomach.
Just juice the grass do not mix it with anything and wait an hour before eating or drinking anything else. you will need a special juicer for greens.
Wheat grass helps with major detox that is why it upsets you when you mix it.
Wheatgrass has cellulose in it, which as Blue_Eyes is saying, we can't digest. This is why we do not eat grass like cows and horses. Pretty awesome your vitamix can handle wheatgrass though :D
I experienced the same thing once malchusmom! I had a juice from whole foods of carrot and orange and asked them to toss in wheatgrass juice. 10 minutes after drinking it my stomach knotted up and I threw up everything. It really hurt my stomach so bad I couldn't eat the rest of the day. I'll pass on that grass :)
Yes it is best taken alone on an empty stomach
It definitely has a detoxifying effect. If anyone's interested in trying the juice in powder form Sweet Wheat is offering a sample kit that comes with some brochures and a CD. http://www.sweetwheat.com/store/wheatgrass-juice/sample-pack-lim...
