Green Barley Powder & Green Spelt Powder
Both powders being whole foods and not supplements, are a natural unaltered source of real vitamins, minerals , dietary fibre, chlorophyll, anti-oxidants and other substances beneficial to health. In fact research shows that like green barley powder, green spelt powder is one of the most complete sources of nutrition available.
Both powders are foods which encourage alkalinity in the body which is the essential state of being for the maintenance of health and the promotion of healing.
Laboratory analysis has shown that both Green powders contain 17 vitamins, including B17, 20 minerals and 8 basic proteins with the Super Spelt powder containing twice the concentration of vitamin B17 to that in the Barley Green.
The Green powders are grown and dried in Australia are certified organic with NASAA, are GMO free, gluten free, not irradiated, harvested when nutrients are at peak levels, processed at low temperatures to ensure maximum potency and contain no additives whatsoever.
Three teaspoons a day, mixed with fruit or vegetable juice, yoghurt, smoothies, breakfast cereals, herb teas, salads etc. is all you need for optimum nutrition. A 1kg pack will last over four months using three level teaspoons a day.
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.
Three teaspoons a day, mixed with fruit or vegetable juice, yoghurt, smoothies, breakfast cereals, herb teas, salads etc. is all you need for optimum nutrition.
From our supplier - Nutrigreen
Below are details of not only the features of our world-class, top quality, nutritious product, but more importantly, some of the GENUINE benefits of choosing Nutrigreen's Organic Green Leaf Powders
Our Organic Green Leaf Powders are a rich source of antioxidants (S.O.D.).
When our body-cells use oxygen, a natural by-product is free radicals, which can cause damage, and even cause the growth of tumours (cancer). Normally a healthy immune system will destroy these free radicals. When our immune system is not functioning correctly, or our body is producing an excess of free radicals, antioxidants can help to prevent and repair the damage caused by free radicals that are not destroyed by our struggling immune system.
Our Organic Green Leaf Powder is high in plant protein. It has an ideal ratio of protein, fats and carbohydrates. It contains carotene, chlorophyll, folic acid, Vitamins A, B, C, E and K, a vast range of minerals including zinc, potassium, calcium, magnesium and iron. It is loaded with live enzymes, 12 essential amino acids and omega 3, 6 and 9 essential fatty acids, and is bursting with 100+ phyto-nutrients (nutrients from a plant).
Taken daily our Organic Green Leaf Powders are a simple, natural supplement for a busy lifestyle or poor diet, as a quick and easy supply of protein, essential fatty acids, chlorophyll, vitamins and other vital nutrients.
Our Organic Green Leaf Powders are Mildly Alkaline with typical pH levels of 8.5.
A modern diet can cause our bodies to be acidic, when the optimum is actually a slightly alkaline level around a pH of 7.4. Cancer cell growth can be promoted in an acidic environment. Our Organic Green Leaf Powder helps to neutralise the pH level of our body. At around a pH of 7.4 cancer cells become dormant and at a pH of 8.5 cancer cells will die, while healthy cells will live. A typical western diet for many people consists of up to 90% acid-forming foods and drinks like white bread, sugar, takeaways, fried, processed or refined foods, tea, coffee, cigarettes and alcohol. Over-eating and the increased ingestion of the typical acidic western diet is the key reasons for people becoming over acidic. To optimize our health and well being, the ideal balance of food and food residue in the body is 80% alkaline and 20% acidic. The human body is continually working to maintain its ideal pH level of between 7.36 and 7.42.
