"A amino acid rich natural supplement which contains an abundance of Chlorophyll"

Barleygrass contains an abundance of chlorophyll (green pigment) which has shown can increase the number of red blood cells and thus the bodies ability to use oxygen. Rich in amino acids, soluble fibre, anti-oxidants, essential vitamins and minerals, alkalizing properties and enzymes green barley grass provides a complete nutrient. Barleygrass is considered to be a highly nutritious food in its own right. The leaves of the cereal grasses provide the nearest thing to the perfect food this planet offers which was stated by Japanese researcher Hagiwara after ten years of research on over 300 green plants. Organic Barleygrass is reportedly an excellent source of vitamins, folic acid, essential minerals. It also contains chlorophyll which is a vital element for general well-being.

Barley Grass vs. Barley Grain


Green grasses are at their nutritional peak before they enter the reproductive cycle. To create grain, the plant must channel its nutrition up to the seed heads. When grasses are harvested before they enter the reproductive cycle, they have a different chemical makeup from their adult, largely depleted, counterparts. Young grasses contain about the same vitamins and minerals as dark green vegetables. Barley grass contains large amounts of bio absorbable calcium. In actual facts studies show up to more than 7 times the calcium found in an equivalent weight of raw spinach and raw broccoli.

Of all the grasses, barley grass has probably been researched the most, due to the efforts of Dr. Yoshihide Hagiwara who researched over 150 different plants over a period of 13 years. He found that barley grass is the best source of the nutrients that the body needs for growth, repair and well-being. Barley grass contains a substance called P4D1; it not only has a strong anti-inflammatory action, but has also been shown to actually repair the DNA in the body's cells. P4D1 aids in the prevention of carcinogenesis, aging, and cell death. Research studies indicate that barley grass juice is much stronger than steroid drugs but has fewer, if any, side effects.

Many doctors and health practitioners have reported that barley grass juice helps in the treatment of a variety of illnesses, including arthritis, migraine headaches, asthma, fatigue and gastro-intestinal disorders, and can help in clarifying the skin. Barley grass is also credited with helping in more serious illnesses.

 

According to research published in the scientific journal, Diabetes and Metabolism (2002, Vol. 28, 107-114), regular supplementation with barley grass reduced the levels of cholesterol and oxygen free radicals in the blood of type 2 diabetics. Researchers have said that this amazing plant can be used as a preventative, if not therapeutic, approach to remaining disease-free.

There are many barley grass products in the market today. Clean Green™ Barley Grass Powders by Melrose are made from the young plants and collected before jointing (when the seed head forms in the stem of the plant) so as to maximise the nutritional value of the food. It is at this time that the shoots are harvested for human consumption, dried at body temperature and powdered.

Barley grass is a well tolerated natural food source. The regular consumption of barley grass has showed no side effects and no adverse reactions or interactions with prescription drugs or orthodox therapies.
