Abstract: Wheat grass, also known as "green blood, " has gained popularity in recent decades as a source of numerous nutrients and antioxidants that can balance out many of the negative impacts of free radicals and pathogens. The current paper provides us with a great understanding of the breadth of applications of wheatgrass. In this study, two varieties of wheat grains, regular and organic, were grown in the identical conditions as the wheatgrass in an in vitro setting. The pupils' homemade potting mixture, which contained coco peat, organic compost, and gardening soil, was employed. At different heights of 6.5 cm, 9.5 cm, and 16.5 cm, colorimetric and quantitative analysis were used to determine the iron and calcium content in wheat grass juice. The iron and calcium contents of wheatgrass powder, which was made to be 18 cm tall, were estimated using the same techniques. This study also covers estimating chlorophyll at various wheatgrass heights. Since the structure of chlorophyll and haemoglobin are identical with the exception of the central atom, it has been discovered that wheatgrass, which is extremely high in chlorophyll, has a variety of advantages for the human population. This elevates wheatgrass juice's importance in the health realm.
