As green blood, wheatgrass contains the active component chlorophyll which is the green pigment of the plant that resembles the structure of the hemoglobin of the red blood cells. Like the human blood, chlorophyll carries energy, nutrients and oxygen to the different parts of the plant. The same process applies in human body wherein chlorophyll supplies nutrition and oxygen to the blood.
