1. Preventing Dental Cavities
Wheatgrass is rich in chlorophyll, which has strong antibacterial properties. Consuming wheatgrass on a regular basis will, therefore, reduce the prime cause of tooth decay, which is the growth of streptococcus Mutans bacteria. The bacteria metabolize food particles left in between the teeth after a meal and produce lactic acid, which decays the tooth enamel leading to dental cavities. Ref: link.
2. Stopping Halitosis
Another benefit of the antibacterial properties of wheatgrass is the reduction of halitosis, a condition that's mainly characterized by bad breath. Halitosis is mainly a result of bad oral hygiene, which encourages the growth of bacterial cultures, which produce sulfur compounds hence the bad breath. The antibacterial action of wheatgrass will decimate these harmful bacteria cultures making it a natural treatment for halitosis. Ref: link.
3. Inhibit Gingival recession
Receding gums, also known as gingival recession, is a health condition that exposes the roots of the teeth due to the loss of gum tissue. Wheatgrass is packed full of antioxidants, vitamins, and chlorophyll, all of which play a critical role in slowing down periodontal disease, which is the major cause of gingival recession. Wheatgrass also contains vitamin E, which is an active natural anti-inflammatory agent that serves to reduce the gingival inflammation.

Some proponents of wheatgrass claim the dietary supplement may aid in your weight-loss efforts by helping suppress appetite. However, this is based on anecdotal evidence, not scientific research. While there's no evidence that wheatgrass helps promote weight loss, the low-calorie dietary supplement may serve as a concentrated source of nutrients when you're limiting your calorie intake to lose weight. In fact, the supplement is thought to have antioxidant properties, which means it may help you fight cell damage by free radicals and lower your risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer.
