Barley grass is one of the best sources of nutrients for the body’s needs. It
assists in growth, tissue repair and well-being. Some experts call it the
closest thing on this planet to the perfect food. The use of barley as food and
medicine dates back thousands of years. Barley grass is high in chlorophyll,
flavonoids, beta carotene, enzymes, all the essential amino acids, calcium,
iron, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, manganese, zinc, vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12,
C, E, folic acid, and pantothenic acid. Barley also contains glucan; a fiber
found in oat bran and reported to reduce cholesterol levels. Green barley juice
contains 11 times the calcium in cows' milk, nearly 5 times the iron in spinach
and 7 times the vitamin C in oranges.
Barley grass is very high in organic sodium. People who have a tendency towards
dehydration need more organic sodium. Organic sodium keeps calcium in solution
in the bloodstream and also dissolves calcium deposited on the joints. It also
replenishes organic sodium in the lining of the stomach.
Besides chlorophyll and a myriad of vitamins, minerals and enzymes, barley
grass is said to have (1):
30 times as much vitamin B1 as in milk
3.3 times as much vitamin C
6.5 times as much carotene as in spinach
11 times the amount of calcium in cow's milk
