A pilot study using Wheatgrass, the first of its kind, was conducted with 60 women who were undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer.
There were two groups studied: intervention arm (A) and control arm (B). Arm (A) drank 60cc of wheatgrass juice daily for the first three cycles of chemotherapy. While arm (B) only had supportive therapy.
In conclusion, it was found that Wheatgrass juice taken during FAC chemotherapy may do the following without weakening the effectiveness of chemotherapy:
These preliminary results of Wheatgrass juice need confirmation in a phase III study, which is currently underway  .
FAC is an acronym for the combination of three breast cancer drugs: fluorouracil (5FU), Adriamycin (doxorubicin) and cyclophosphamide which are given on a 21 day cycle.
These drugs cause serious side effects and the drugs used to counteract them are expensive.
Myelotoxicity is a life-threatening side effect of chemotherapy in which it reduces the cells responsible for immunity, oxygen carrying, and normal blood clotting.
I add powdered wheatgrass to the juice I make every morning because it is loaded with vitamins and minerals.
Wheatgrass may not directly prevent breast cancer, but it may help boost my immune system so it can naturally prevent breast cancer from returning!
