This nutritious tonic has cleansing and rejuvenating properties. The medicinal use of grasses and chlorophyll date back to the Bible and have been used widely ever since. Grass poultices have been used for their cooling properties to treat inflammation, burns, itchiness and eyestrain. Nutritionally, wheat grass possesses high protein levels similar to most meats, and also has traces of vitamin B12.
