Today, Organic Gurlz Gardens of Fort Wayne, Indiana will be sharing information on the Health Benefits of Lemongrass and Wheatgrass.
What’s the big deal?
Almost everyone has heard of wheatgrass and lemongrass, but what is it good for?
Is it just there to, well, be there?
O.G.G. is here to share some benefits (and uses) of these “pet” grasses.
Botanically, the herb (Yes, Herb) belongs to grass family of Poaceae.
Lemongrass (with the scientific name of Cymbopogon) grows in dense clumps, branching out from a tough bulbous base with a spread of about 1 meter wide and 3 feet in height.
Since this herb grows big, Organic Gurlz Gardens suggests growing Lemongrass outside on your deck or patio rather than your indoor living space.
Its leaves are bright green with sharp edges, and it has a refreshing, citrus-scent.
The Lemongrass herb has a wide range of health benefiting essential oils, chemicals, minerals and vitamins that are known to have anti-oxidant and disease preventing properties (This is including cancer!). Also, Lemongrass averages having NO cholesterol!

My Mommy, Becca recommends eating wheatgrass in a soup:
One of the best ways to consume Wheatgrass is juicing.
Mommy Juices every morning.
Wheatgrass is the young baby grass of the common wheat plant. It grows in temperate regions throughout Europe and the United States. This plant can live indoors or outdoors, depending how often you “prune” it.
An independent study by researchers in Israel showed that treatment with wheatgrass juice eased the symptoms of ulcerative colitis – in other words, inflammation of the colon. More research needs to be done, but it does point to possible benefits from wheatgrass.
Although wheatgrass is healthy, pace yourself when eating it. Some people have had mild headaches and nausea to more serious allergic reactions (hives and swelling of the throat).
Because it is common to eat wheatgrass raw, there is also the rare chance that it can be contaminated with bacteria or other organisms from the soil.
This is true for not organically grown herbs and plants. With Organic Gurlz Gardens, we take pride in growing organically for your and your family’s best health possible!
