On top of all that, CitraGreen contains no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. It is also suitable for vegans and gluten free.

Wheatgrass juice has also been known to help cancer patients. Due to its high antioxidant content, wheatgrass intake enhances hemoglobin synthesis as chlorophyll bears a structural analogy to hemoglobin. This results in augmented oxygen supply to all body cells including cancer cells which are highly vulnerable to high oxygen concentration. The enzyme SOD catalyses the generation of hydrogen peroxide from superoxide radicals, and thus further ads onto this effect.
According to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (https://www.mskcc.org/cancer-care/integrative-medicine/herbs/wheat-grass) evidence, “Animal models suggest that wheat grass may have hypolipidemic and antioxidant effects. Wheat grass supplementation reduced plasma lipid peroxidation levels in healthy volunteers engaged in regular exercise. A small study and systematic review indicate that wheat grass juice may be helpful for ulcerative colitis.” In addition, “Wheat grass juice may decrease myelotoxicity in breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. There is also a report that wheat grass juice can reduce serum ferritin in patients with myelodysplastic syndrome.”
Wheatgrass also helps manage inflammitory bowel disease. Inflammitory bowel disease is the inflammation of the intestines. The following chronic conditions are considered inflammitory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease, both being characterized by rectal bleeding, diarrhea and abdominal pain. Wheatgrass juice is currently being studied as a possible therapy for ulcerative colitis as it is rich in bioflavon-oids which are believed to possess both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
