Looking to give your health a green boost in an easy form? The Urban Health Wheatgrass powder could just be what you need.
History of wheatgrass
Although the use of wheat grass for health and healing can be traced to ancient Egypt, Western world consumption began in the 1930s as a result of Charles F. Schnabel's work. His experiments with nursing dying chickens back to healthy, highly productive states - using fresh wheatgrass - encouraged him to begin drying and powdering wheatgrass as a dietary supplement for family and neighbours. Thus began the development of wheatgrass powder - a convenient and effective way to get the powerful benefits of fresh grass.
Benefits of Wheatgrass
Wheatgrass contains several antioxidants and nutrients, including vitamins A, B-complex, C, E and K, calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium. Proponents claim it contains more phytonutrients per gram than vegetables. It's also high in protein, amino acids, enzymes and fibre. It is made up of 70% per cent chlorophyll, which has numerous health benefits, including fighting stress and infection and healing wounds.
Wheatgrass is linked to improved digestive system function and constipation prevention. It's also used as treatment for irritable bowel syndrome and acid reflux disease, according to UCLA Brain Research Institute.
Daily consumption is believed to enhance the health of blood cells, muscles, bones, teeth, kidneys, liver and spleen; regulate blood pressure; improve circulation and metabolism; and prevent heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
It is also deemed a natural appetite suppressant and metabolism booster and is used to aid digestion, ease menopausal symptoms and chronic fatigue syndrome, reduce hair loss, detoxify heavy metals from the blood, boost energy and assist with eczema, colds and osteoarthritis.
What makes Urban Health Wheatgrass powder different?
Urban Health Wheatgrass is organically grown without herbicides or pesticides in fertile farmland.
They harvest the leaf when it’s young and short, which is when it is nutrient and chlorophyll dense.
Their clever dehydration machine and grinder work at low temperatures, never heating above 24°C, which means their organic wheatgrass powder is an undamaged raw whole food.
Every batch is tested in-house and independently.
The wheatgrass powder is quickly packaged into sachets to limit light and oxidation – keeping it uber fresh and nutrient rich, right up to the point of drinking.

Urban Health is the brainchild of two brothers who began knocking-back glasses of wheatgrass in order to fight illness, stress and fatigue. After 3 weeks of taking the green stuff, Lee and Phil Robertshaw binned their daily health supplements and became advocates for the hallowed Wheatgrass. Excited by their discovery, they then went on the search for other potent little miracles and discovered the Acai berry.
