wheatgrass juice vs powder

Hi,
After hearing all the benefits of wheatgrass I decided I would buy some to test it out. The only kind I could find which didn't require it to be grown was wheatgrass powder, which is 100% organic.

I was just wondering whether the powder would be anywhere near as effective as the wheatgrass juice. I find that after putting between 1 and 2 teaspons of wheatgrass powder in my water in the morning (before food) I don't notice any difference in energy levels. I was under the impression it gives you a boost of energy, which is what I need when I have early morning starts at uni.

The main reason I want to know about this is because it's a lot cheaper to grow wheatgrass yourself, and I already have a greenhouse, but if I don't really feel any benefits from the juice then maybe there is no point wasting money on a juicer, which are quite expensive, even for a manual one.

Thanks

The energy levels usually increase at the 2 week mark. For me it is more an absence of fatigue than a burst of energy. No more sore back or tendency to nap, etc. And some people get a detox effect for the first few days causing drowsiness. Give it a bit of time to clean out your liver, then see.

I think you would benefit with a green juice that has barley, spirulina, wheat grass, green alge more than just taking the wheat grass.

Wheatgrass is a wonderful healer, are you going to juice it yourself?

Have you looked into Barleygreen? It has barley grass, brown rice, and kelp, not to mention the vitamins and minerals it contains. My friend takes it and she says it gives her a ton of energy and she only pays $27 a jar, which is a good deal IMO.

Re: wheatgrass juice vs powder

I got a powder mixture with wheatgrass, barley grass, spirulina, etc many other greens. At first I had a burst of energy. Didn't have to take naps anymore, my head felt clearer. After about a month it stopped working for me. OR, something else is going on in my body.

Now I'm going to try wheatgrass powder only.
