"Aanhin ang damo kapag patay na ang kabayo" (What good is the grass if the horse's already dead), a Filipino proverb is truthful as it gets but the answer to this proverb is...turn grass into juice drink ! Wheat Grass, here's the video segment from 'Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho'

Wheatgrass refers to the young grass of the common wheat plant, Triticum aestivum, that is freshly juiced or dried into powder for animal and human consumption. Both provide chlorophyll, amino acids, minerals, vitamins, and enzymes. Claims about wheatgrass' health benefits range from providing supplemental nutrition to having unique curative properties. It is often available in juice bars, alone or in mixed fruit and/or vegetable drinks. It is also available in many health food stores as fresh produce, tablets, frozen juice and powder.
