Wheatgrass is a sprouted green grass that has many reputable health benefits; one of which is increased energy levels. Just one ounce of wheatgrass provides the vitamin and mineral equivalent to almost 2.2 pounds of healthy vegetables. It also contains energy-enhancing chlorophyll that may play an important role in cancer prevention. If you’re hesitant to try wheatgrass in the form of a shot, try it in a smoothie instead.
