Wheatgrass, not unlike other herbs in the natural pharmacopeia, has bioactive components that can be extracted in the same way as other important herbal medicines such as the extracts of echinacea, ginseng, goldenseal, dandelion, St. Johns wort, wormwood, peppermint, burdock, etc. High levels of naturally occurring antioxidants, vitamins A, C and E, phytosterosis and amino acids give vitality to normal, chapped, cracked or rough skin. Evidence also shows that it may help reduce the appearance of aging.

Is Dr. Wheatgrass a Real Doctor?
You bet. Dr. Chris Reynolds is an Australian born medical doctor who spent 30 years serving as a general practitioner. He became disenchanted with the standard procedure of prescribing pharmaceutical medicines because many of them never addressed the root causes of disease and only mitigated symptoms. They were also expensive and under prolonged use had side effects. He seriously considered dropping out of medicine until one of his patients introduced him to a fascinating story of healing with wheatgrass. He began using wheatgrass in 1995 and has been experimenting with it clinically ever since. Because of the difficulties his patients had in growing and using the fresh grass, he developed a wheatgrass extract and produced it for his patients. He spent 11 years and treated over 25,000 patients with his wheatgrass extract and extract products. His website www.drwheatgrass.com is dedicated to the therapeutic uses and benefits of wheatgrass.
Dr. Wheatgrass Aids in Recovery of Stroke Symptoms
“Our Fijian stroke patient and the young child with meningitis has now expanded into 9 patients all showing significant improvement in motor and sensory function by simply applying a little cream on affected areas. This is clearly a medical breakthrough. I have little doubt that wheatgrass is about to revolutionise rehabilitation in these patients.” -Dr. Chris Reynolds
Is There Any Research Behind These Products?
Yes, there is. For full research annotations and extensive information, see Wheatgrass Nature’s Finest Medicine. But throughout its history, wheatgrass has remained sadly under-researched. This has to do with the fact that a common plant can never be patented and thus provides no incentive for the large pharmaceutical companies to invest. Thus, it remains out of the mainstream. Conventional medicine considers wheatgrass snake oil precisely because of this lack of research. It’s a catch 22. Many herbal medicines fall into this quagmire. Thus, as an alternative medicine, wheatgrass suffers life on the fringe and a long and slow road to greater acceptance.
