I have been growing my first batch of wheatgrass and have been so excited about it. I tasted it once in a juice bar and I felt so good the whole day. I'm not sure if it was that or just a coincidence of having other good events that pleased me that day, or not.
I keep reading things about how wheatgrass is a scam. How the whole chlorophyll being close to hemoglobin is not scientific and how a carrot has more vitamins than a glass of wheatgrass juice.
The angle of criticism comes from the unscientific claims that 'gurus' make. The whole 'guru' thing comes into play because people are relating a metaphysical, new-age philosophy to raw veganism. While personally I am not a vitalist, i.e. do not talk about vital force or life force or whatever when adhering to a raw diet, I can see why some people get skeptical about wheatgrass when they hear this stuff.
Does anyone have any personal success with wheatgrass? How do you know it is not a placebo effect?
