- Our 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 Organic Barley Grass Juice Powder is an easy way to get the nutrition of this incredible green food.
- Barley Grass Juice Powder should not be confused with regular Barley Grass 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 dehydrated into a powder. In contrast, whole Barley Grass Powder is made by drying the entire grass leaf and then milling it into a fine powder
- 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 support the body in the repair process. Additionally SOD supports a healthy inflammation response.
P4D1 Enzyme - P4D1 has been found to do two things in the human body. It is the first known substance to actually stimulate the 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 mutated 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 tendons.

Taste, smell, texture, and color may vary from batch to batch. Due to its nature, this powder tends to clump. If clumping occurs, lay the bag on a flat surface and place a towel over the bag. Then pound on the bag until the clumps break up. The towel will help protect the bag from damage. To further reduce clumping push as much air out as possible before sealing the pouch and store it in the refrigerator or freezer.
