Welcome to the NEW Healthista series featuring 30 days of weight loss tips with Nutritionist Rick Hay. Discover why adding wheatgrass powder to your smoothie could help with your weight management
Today, Rick Hay talks about using wheatgrass to help support your weight loss regime. Rather than directly contributing to weight loss, wheatgrass is a nutrient powerhouse that can help ensure your calorie-cutting regime doesn’t compromise your vitamins. It contains potassium, dietary fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E (alpha tocopherol), vitamin K, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, pantothenic acid, iron, zinc, copper, manganese and selenium – essential vitamins that could help support energy levels and vitality as you’re trying to lose weight.
Rick Hay says: ‘The deep green colour of this wheatgrass shot is from the chlorophyll it contains which provides its natural energy production abilities. If you have more energy you are going to be more likely to stick to your fitness regime. It can also help you with mood and cognition because of its nutrient density, which simply means it can help deliver vitamins, minerals, enzymes and vital nutrients to your system.’
