Ah, winter. The crisp, refreshing air is reminiscent of the holly jolly holidays, a hopeful New Year and, of course, a cold that just won’t go away. The sniffles are going around the office, the kids are coming home coughing and immune systems everywhere are preparing for battle.

The winter season is notorious for breeding upper respiratory tract infections, otherwise known as common colds. Symptoms can include cough, sore throat, watery eyes, nasal congestion, runny nose and sneezing. It is the most frequently occurring illness in the world and is the leading cause for doctor visits and missed days from school or work.

Prevent infection or aid in your recovery with wheatgrass.

WHY WHEATGRASS?

Wheatgrass is an incredible source of nutrients. One ounce of wheatgrass juice has the vitamin and mineral content equal to an ounce of fresh vegetables. It also contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory chemicals and a chemical that seems to kill bacterial infections. Wheatgrass can be eaten raw, juiced or dried.
