Barley Grass is one of the cereal grasses, which have been valued as a primary source of food since ancient times. They are powerhouses of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, antioxidants, DNA, and RNA. Importantly, barley grass and all cereal grasses are rich sources of phytonutrients: most significantly, chlorophyll.
Barley grass is well-known for its body-building and tissue-healing abilities. It contains a broad spectrum of concentrated vitamins, especially beta-carotene, C, E, and the B-complex. It is rich minerals, with high levels of potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, and zinc. Barley grass is also rich in enzymes, including many unique digestive enzymes that are able to detoxify indigestible and toxin-contaminated foods. One such enzyme is superoxide dismutase (SOD) which protects cells from the free radicals produced by pollution in our air, food, water, and by radiation. Additionally, barley grass contains large amounts of mucopolysaccharides, which have the ability to strengthen body tissues, lower blood fat, and reduce inflammation. It is an excellent source of protein; barley juice extract powder is as high as 45% protein. Barley grass shows DNA-repairing properties, strong anti-inflammatory action, and is immune-enhancing.
Barley grass is known for its healing and nutritive powers. Chlorophyll, with its remarkable abilities, is to plants what hemoglobin is to our blood. It is actually very similar to the hemin molecule of hemoglobin. Because of this, chlorophyll has many health benefits, including improving anemic conditions as well as detoxifying and purifying the blood and liver. When ingested as a food nutrient, chlorophyll actually increases blood production, as it readily changes into the hemin molecule of hemoglobin. Additionally, chlorophyll aids in the wound healing process soothes ulcerated tissue and is an antibacterial agent.
Because of its high chlorophyll content, barley grass juice has a cleansing effect throughout the gastrointestinal tract. It binds with toxins in the digestive tract, preventing them from being absorbed in the body and cleansing the intestines. Additionally, barley grass is very soothing and nutritive for all internal organs. Processed foods create a pH imbalance of high acidity in the body; barley grass juice extract, because of its high alkalinity, helps to restore the body's acid-alkaline balance. A truly amazing tonic for the entire body!
