View Full Version : Wheatgrass side effects?

Sat Apr 14, 2012, 09:26 AM
Hi all

I have started a wheatgrass regime, 400 mg freeze dried capsules/3xday (thanks Alice!) and have noticed that since I started, I am having GI issues again, mainly severe gassiness/consitipation....has anyone noticed this effect or is it just coincidental? I had waited until all was well with my system before I started and the last week or so has been rough.
I don't want to stop the wheatgrass to find out but I am really uncomfortable. Wondering if there is conncection or anyone else has any suggestions....thanks!

I have not used wheat grass, but I understand that is a side effect.:(

Hi, Cheri -

John had always had GI issues, but we didn't notice any increase (or decrease) in them when he started taking the wheatgrass. Hope it works out for you.

The exjade messed with John's GI track and it took a long time for it to settle down. It's never returned to his "old normal" schedule.

You may want to back off to one/day and work back up slowly to 3/day. Another thing to try is to stop all sugars for a while.

Hi Cheri,
We have not heard anything from you the latest weeks. How are you?
Kind regards

Hello All
I read about the wheatgrass in the posts - but since I am so new here - and new to this disease - can you tell me what it is supposed to accomplish? I tried 'Googling' it - and didn't come up with any correlation.

As far as the constipation is concerned - increase your water intake - and I stress water - because anythin else has something in it that needs digested. Of course - fiber is good as well - or if it gets REAL bad - get a bottle of Magnesium Citrate - and I guarantee you that you will 'get cleaned out' - kind of like before a colonoscopy.

I hope you feel better soon.

Hi Beth,
Wheatgrass is supposed to be a chelating drug. You wrote that Earl is getting a chelating drug in connection with txs. Is it Desferal?
Kind regards
