Hi, I'm Stella Metsovas, and today we're talking about the benefits of wheatgrass on a fatty liver. So what is fatty liver disease? There are two types. There's the alcoholic liver disease and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. According to WebMD, over 15 million people in the United States abuse or overuse alcohol and most will develop fatty livers because of that. Here's a shocker. For non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, it's now the most common cause of chronic liver disease in the United States and here's another quick fact. Recent studies show that an overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine and other changes in the intestine may be associated with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. More research to come there. Now wheatgrass is actually freshly sprouted wheat that is usually between one to two weeks old. In a study from "The Journal of Biological Chemistry", they note that wheatgrass as being one of the most widely used health foods but its functional components and mechanisms are largely unknown. The research revealed that wheatgrass has immuno-stimulatory or positive effects on the immune system. So the key point here is that wheatgrass may act as a natural detoxifier to the liver. There might be limited research for the exact reason why wheatgrass might serve the liver well, but the take home here is to keep your diet as close to ancestral like those ingredients found in the royal villages throughout the world and keep your alcohol intake and overall sugars very limited especially if you have elevated liver enzymes.
