Scand J Gastroenterol. 2002 Apr;37(4):444-9. Key Finding: “Twenty-one patients completed the study. Treatment with wheatgrass was associated with significant reductions in the overall disease activity index and in the severity of rectal bleeding. Wheatgrass juice appeared effective and safe as a single or adjuvant treatment of active distal ulcerative colitis.”

Dietary Factors in the Modulation of Inflammatory Bowel Disease Activity. Shah S. MedGenMed. 2007;9(1):60. Key Finding: “The components of wheatgrass juice include chlorophyll, vitamins A, C, and E, and various amino acids. It has been demonstrated that wheatgrass juice is anti-mutagenic. One constituent of wheatgrass is apigenin, which is believed to possess both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Some believe that this constituent may be beneficial in ulcerative colitis. A randomized controlled trial of wheatgrass juice in the management of ulcerative colitis has demonstrated some efficacy.”
