Wheatgrass is known to contain a wide range of amino acids, vitamins, chlorophyll, enzymes, and fiber. The potential health benefits to consuming wheatgrass include antioxidants, organ cleansing, breath freshening, digestion support, help with constipation, odor control, energy boosting, and antiseptic properties.
The reason most cats eat grass and then proceed to regurgitate is because it helps aid in their digestion. You see, cats lack certain enzymes that digest vegetable matter; so, the fibers in grass act as a cleanser for a cat’s stomach, pulling out matter that the feline may be struggling to digest such as hairballs. Sometimes, the cat may resist vomiting in order to cleanse their intestines, making the grass work as a natural laxative. In short, grass is not harmful to your cat. In fact, it is healthy for your cat to consume a fair amount of grass, and can especially benefit from consuming wheatgrass.
