Investigating the Anti-inflammatory Activity of Wheatgrass Juice in Albino Rats

Wheatgrass juice was used to test the anti-inflammatory properties in albino rats. Wheatgrass juice’s anti-inflammatory effect was tested using a carrageenin-induced rat hind paw edoema model, a rexin pellet-induced rat granuloma model, and a formalin-induced rat hind paw edoema paradigm for chronic studies. The findings were compared to diclofenac sodium, a conventional medication, and a control group. In chronic models, wheatgrass has a strong anti-inflammatory impact. Wheatgrass had a greater effect than diclofenac sodium in the rexin pellet model. Wheat grass had a lower effect than diclofenac sodium in a formalin-induced rat hind paw edoema model. Wheatgrass juice had very little effect in a carrageenin-induced rat hind paw edoema model. Wheatgrass juice, on the other hand, had no anti-inflammatory efficacy in acute models. Wheatgrass juice has anti-inflammatory properties in the case of chronic inflammation.
