Nutritionist Names a Natural Drink That Energizes Better Than Coffee

Wheatgrass will give you energy and will be an incredible substitute for coffee. The winter season causes apathy even among the most cheerful people. Nutritionists advise monitoring your diet especially carefully during such periods.

According to experts, you need to add more foods rich in vitamins and minerals. Nutritionist Veronika Khusnutdinova said on her Instagram that vitgrass will give you energy and will be an incredible substitute for coffee.

What is wheatgrass good for?

Wheatgrass, the juice of wheat sprouts, contains a huge amount of vitamins: A, E, C, K, B1, B2, B3, B4, B5, B6, and B8. One serving of this juice replaces 2 kg of vegetables and fruits.

“Wheat germ juice is a good source of macro- and microelements. Of the one hundred and two known beneficial minerals, wheatgrass contains ninety-two of them,” says the expert.

Wheat germ juice contains 17 amino acids:

  • lysine
  • isoleucine
  • tryptophan,
  • phenylalanine,
  • a-amino-b-oxybutyric acid,
  • valine,
  • methionine,
  • alanine,
  • arginine,
  • aspartic acid,
  • glutamic acid,
  • amino acetic acid,
  • histidine,
  • proline
  • serine,
  • tyrosine.

The juice contains 70% chlorophyll, which is a very powerful natural energizer. “Chlorophyll is considered the blood of plants, but it is also useful for human blood. Chlorophyll qualitatively improves the condition of red blood cells. Higher-quality red blood cells can have a significant impact on overall health.

An increase in hemoglobin levels increases oxygen circulation, which increases energy and improves the functioning of cells throughout the body,” she added.

Features of eating wheatgrass

Do not use iron utensils for drinking, the juice contains a lot of amino acids, which leads to oxidation of the product (even stainless steel). Choose only high-quality frozen wheatgrass juice. Consult your doctor before use.
