The following extract from an article entitled 'Green barley: antioxidant and vitamin rich' by Peter O'Hara and published in the Journal of Health Professionals, Vol. 1 No.1 1998 gives some idea of why green barley powder is regarded as one of nature's superfoods.
In 1985 after 10 years of research on over 300 plants, Japanese researcher Yoshihide Hagiwara stated that 'the young leaves of the cereal grasses provide the nearest things to the perfect food that this planet offers'. Green barley was found to be an excellent source of beta-carotene, vitamin K, folic acid, calcium, iron, protein and fibre as well as vitamin C and many of the B vitamins including B12.
The benefit of including a food such as green barley powder into the daily diet over taking multi vitamin supplements is the synergistic relationship between the nutrients it contains. For example, calcium and vitamin B6 help the body absorb B12 which is essential for the activation of folic acid. A second example of this synergistic action is vitamin C assisting the absorbtion of calcium and iron. Iron is then used in the conversion of beta carotene to vitamin A.
Green barley is particularly rich in the antioxidant enzyme called superoxide dismutase (SOD) which is an effective scavenger of chemicals and heavy metals. This enzyme contributes to green barley's value in cleansing programs. People commonly report clearer skin, brighter eyes or increased energy after incorporating green barley into their diet. Greater resistance to colds, flu and infections, improved joint mobility, increased stamina and decreased signs and symptoms of ill-health are also commonly reported.
In choosing a green barley product the author recommends looking for one which is organically grown and minimally processed which are two important criteria the Nutri Green brand we stock certainly meet. Nutri Green, Green Barley Powder is wholly and solely the dried goodness of NASAA certified organic young barley plants and contains no other additives whatsoever. It is dried slowly in sterile conditions (the temperature does not exceed 38 degrees C) thereby retaining its precious store of enzymes, minerals and vitamins.
If you are one of those people who has an aversion to taking supplements but feel you would like to boost your daily vitamin and mineral intake, Nutri Green Barley Powder provides an attractive natural alternative.
