The young grass of the common wheat plant, Triticum Aestivum, is commonly called wheatgrass. Wheatgrass is said to strengthen the body’s immune system and has been touted as a cure for many ailments, including cancer. Wheatgrass is considered one of the world’s best whole foods–a “super food,” if you will. One of the common ways to consume wheatgrass is wheatgrass tea.
