The first drops of rains are rejuvenating, and provide us the much-sought relief from scorching summer heat. However, the onset of monsoon also means that your risk of catching a number of seasonal infections or diseases has increased considerably.
As “prevention is always better than cure”, having a robust immunity can help us stay protected against many monsoon-related infections and/or maladies. When it comes to the right diet for ‘Immunity Building’ or ‘strengthening our body’s internal defense mechanism’ over the long term, one of the less-talked-about yet highly effective immunity builders is wheatgrass (popularly known as gehu ki ghaas).

Wheatgrass can be actively used as an everyday health tonic to prevent diseases, says Gurpreet Singh, Managing Director, Jivo Wellness. “One of nature’s finest medicine; it is also known as ‘Green Blood’ due to its exceptionally high chlorophyll content of 70 per cent. This natural, high chlorophyll content makes the wheatgrass juice uniquely greener amongst other green juices with detoxifying, healing and strengthening properties. As a mocktail, wheatgrass and chlorophyll together serve as a powerful purifier and help build a healthy cardiovascular system,” he says.
