Most of the people who launch the wheat grass therapy are generally patient suffering from chronic to serious diseases. They need medicinal substances contained in the wheat grass in abundance. Generally their bodies are a store house of toxic substances due to their faulty eating and living habits. So if those accumulated toxic elements have to be removed quickly it is essential to give them a large dosage of wheat grass. Under such circumstances, it is advisable to prefer administering wheat grass substances to them in the juice form. Compared to solid form, juice can be taken in a larger quantity and that too more easily. It is generally difficult to administer a larger dosage through chewing of the wheat grass. Besides that it is very time consuming too. Very few people have the necessary time and patience to go through this process. Some people even find its taste unpalatable. To chew the grass slowly and allow its juice to go down the throat is often felt to be a boring task by many people. Moreover, the fibrous waste going down along with the juice causes heaviness in the stomach and hampers the digestive process too.
So it is purely the user’s choice to adopt to which regimen. There is no harm in shifting mid-way to the other regimen. What is required is a fair and judicious combination of both the ways to get the maximum advantage of this therapy.
