Barley grass is a nutritious food that is best known for its alkalising and antioxidant properties. It is made from young nutrient dense shoots of barley, which are harvested above the ground ensuring that none of the grain is present. Since the allergenic protein gluten is only present in the barley grain, barley grass is gluten free.Green barley leaves are loaded with enzymes – our body’s spark plugs. Enzymes supply the spark that starts the essential chemical reactions our bodies need to survive. Without this spark, and these chemical reactions, we would be in poor shape.Large amounts of vitamins and minerals are found in green barley leaves. These include potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, phosphorus, manganese, zinc, beta carotene, B1, B2, B6, C, folic acid, and pantothenic acid. Indeed, green barley juice contains 11 times the calcium in cows’ milk, nearly 5 times the iron in spinach, 7 times the vitamin C in oranges, and 80 mg of vitamin B12 per hundred grams. Green barley leaves also contain considerable amounts of chlorophyll.
Green barley is a natural food and is not linked to any significant adverse effects. However, due to its detoxifying properties it is best to start at a low dosage and gradually increase the dosage to avoid any detoxification symptoms. Common symptoms of detoxification include headache, fatigue and flatulence. These symptoms should cease within 24-48 hours, however many people do not suffer any detoxification symptoms at all. Ensure you drink plenty of filtered water and eat a healthy diet to support your body’s detoxification efforts. Barley grass is a rich source of vitamin K, which is an important vitamin for blood clotting. Therefore it is important to discuss this with your doctor if you are taking blood thinning medications.
Green barley contains high concentrations of naturally occurring substances with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.1 Britian’s Food Guru, Dr Gillian McKeith, in her book “Living Food For Health – 12 Natural Superfoods to transform your health” calls Green Barley the “Toxin Terminator”; which is a fitting name for such an amazing food.
