HEALTH Wheatgrass on your doorstep


Wheatgrass on your doorstep

The wheatgrass trend shows no sign of abating. With so many benefits packed into one plant, it’s not surprising that it has found a place in the hearts (and digestive tracts!) of the health conscious.
Now, it is possible to get the superfood from a supplier based right here in Co Mayo – it’s a double feel-good whammy: support your body’s health while also supporting a new local business.
Wheatgrass Clewbay (, 087 9018825) is based on the outskirts of Westport. Run by Rita Gannon, who has a background in nutrition, the company produces ‘naturally grown, fresh wheatgrass’ and can deliver to your door on request. It also distributes nationwide and sells specialised wheatgrass juicers.
Rita, who has a passion for healthy, nutritious raw food and a genuine interest in promoting the health benefits of Wheatgrass to the public, explains that wheatgrass has a very high nutrient composition and is well known for its rich chlorophyll content.
Chlorophyll might be important for plants, but what can it do for us? “The chlorophyll helps to cleanse and purify the liver and can also washing drug deposits from the body and neutralise toxins. The chlorophyll also stabilises blood sugar levels,” Rita says.
“Wheatgrass is considered to be a complete food because it contains every amino acid, vitamin and mineral required for human nutrition. Just one ounce of fresh wheatgrass juice taken daily is equivalent to 2.5 pounds of vegetables in nutritional value.”
And that’s not all: “Wheatgrass juice is immediately absorbed into the bloodstream and gives energy straight away, helping to reduce fatigue. It’s also an appetite suppressant, and so can help with weight loss.
“Wheatgrass juice improves metabolism and helps digestion, is thought to lower blood pressure,” Rita adds.
Wheatgrass juice is also said to be antibacterial, preventing tooth decay and improving the complexion of the skin, as well as anti-inflammatory, helping to reduce the pain associated with inflammation caused by such conditions as gout and arthritis.
