The Wheat Grass Story

Curious about why people started taking wheat grass?

Back in the 1930s, Dr. Charles Schnabel, an agricultural chemist, noted that his ailing hens recovered quickly after being fed with fresh, young wheatgrass. The hens also grew faster and fertility doubled compared with healthy hens fed standard diets. This discovery sparked his extensive research in wheat grass and soon, dehydrated wheat grass was available as a supplement for human consumption.

Dehydrated wheat grass was approved and accepted by the American Medical Association (AMA) in 1939 as a natural vitamin food. Back then, people took dehydrated wheat grass to supplement their diets before synthetic vitamin supplements were available

Later on in the 1960s, the widespread use of wheat grass for therapeutic health benefits was popularized by Dr. Ann Wigmore. She grew and chewed young blades of wheat grass to treat her colon inflammation and this healed her. From then on, she started her health treatment institute to spread the therapeutic use of wheat grass in treating many others with chronic degenerative diseases.
