Why did you start this thread on a science forum?
Quote from: SteveD on 04/03/2009 22:09:29Also, after the third 12 ounce serving of wheatgrass I became violent ill. I attribute this to the second and third serving being too close together.After discussion with two parties I've decided to keep the dosage at 12 ounces three times/day but to maintain 4-6 hours intervals between servings.If a large enough dose can make you acutely ill, wouldn't you worry about the cumulative effects of several smaller doses? Do we know what active chemicals are in wheatgrass? Any idea how the body deals with and excretes these chemicals? If something is to be treated as, or considered medicinal, these are really the sorts of things we should hope to find out. You could be slowly poisoning yourself.

So far there's no scientific evidence for the wheatgrass doing anything (apart, perhaps, from making money for the seller/ grower).
It sho' 'nuff is a funny set of repeating conditions...
My digestion was better. My heart, lungs worked more smoothly and mind (As Cliff C. noted with his experience) was clearer
What about those of us who don't know or particularly care about wheatgrass, but feel that since there's no evidence, this isn't science and possibly shouldn't be on a scientific web site?
Hi SteveD,I was also interested in production values regarding growing wheatgrass. It's tricky to get consistent quality trays of wheatgrass. They require frequent watering, the amount of sunlight/light affects how fast the sprouts grow, soil amount and quality is a big factor, and when the tray is harvested and juiced I think has a big influence on the nutrient content.I've noticed when the sprouts get a bit too much for the tray/soil amount and start turning yellow, the juiced product and effect definitely suffers, and there is only a couple days' window before it gets like this. There may be a wide number of factors affecting nutrient content.-Cliff

Wednesday February 11, 2009I wanted to know if anyone else has positive experiences with wheatgrassSteve D.San Francisco CA, USA
Steve, this is not a blog. No-one cares about your wheatgrass regime. It's not adding anything to scientific knowledge about wheatgrass.
