Wheatgrass Benefits Exercising

New study shows benefits of wheatgrass when exercising.

A study was released from Mercyhurst College that shows the benefits of wheatgrass while working out. It is widely acknowledged that wheatgrass is beneficial to the body, as it is stocked with nutrients such as protein, iron, calcium, potassium, and vitamins A, B, and C. However, there is little research done on further benefits it might have. The researchers of this study found that consuming wheatgrass before exercising improves the body’s blood oxygen levels. Additionally, researchers believe that wheatgrass might improve blood oxygen in the recovery stages of exercising as well.
