Our raw Organic Barley Grass is one of the most nutrient rich foods in nature. Barley grass is rich in protein and contains 20 amino acids, 12 vitamins and 13 minerals. The nutrition of barley grass is similar to that of wheatgrass though some prefer the taste. Our raw organic barley grass powder is an easy way to get the nutrition of this incredible green food.
Barley Grass Powder should not be confused with Barley Grass Juice Powder. Barley Grass Powder is made by drying the whole grass leaf and then milling it into a fine powder. Barley Grass Juice Powder is made by first juicing the Barley Grass and removing all of the cellulose so a pure juice concentrate is left. Then the juice is dried into a powder.
Organic barley grass is a powerful detoxifier of the liver, blood, and gastrointestinal tract while chemically neutralizing toxins. The enzymes and amino acids found in barley grass may help protect the body from free radicals and carcinogens. Barley grass also stimulates metabolism and the body's enzyme systems by enriching the blood and increasing red blood-cell count. It may also aid in reducing blood pressure by dilating the blood pathways throughout the body.
Barley grass is rich in protein and includes all eight of the essential amino acids, as well as 12 of the remaining 16 non essential amino acids. Besides containing most vitamins, minerals and an excellent source of living chlorophyll, organic barley grass has three other special components which make it particularly valuable:
● Superoxide Dismutase (SOD)
● P4D1 Enzyme
● Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs)
Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) - The aging process has been directly linked to decreasing amounts of SOD in our system. Increased amounts of SOD cause our body to repair itself quicker. Additionally SOD acts as an anti-inflammatory.
P4D1 Enzyme - P4D1 has been found to do two things in the human body. It is the first known substance to actually stimulate repair of DNA molecules. It is possible that disease cells can be repaired with P4D1 so that when they reproduce they will actually produce good cells. P4D1 has also been shown in laboratory tests to eat the protein sheath off a cancer cell so that the white blood cells can attack and destroy them.
Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) - GAGs form an important component in the synovial fluid lubricant in body joints, and chondroitins which can be found in connective tissues, cartilage and tendons.
