Vitamins, minerals and other nutrients found in wheat grass are known to improve digestion, skin and gum condition, neutralize infection, enhance night vision and boost resistance to disease, among other benefits. Wheat grass also satisfies pets' instinctual cravings for greens, providing a safe alternative to potentially harmful household plants and chemically-treated outside grasses.
