This is the dehydrated powder from the juice of sprouted, organically grown barley. Because of the sprouting process, there is no gluten in this product, so is suitable for gluten intolerant people. Barley grass juice is as much a whole food as any fresh juice.
The most nutritious of these ( BarleyLife https://wholelifewell.com/shop/aim-barleylife-powder/) is spray dried at room temperature and therefore maintains the complete array of nutrients, much in their original form. The barley leaves should be organically grown under stringent conditions, the crops rotated and then cut at a certain height when nutrients are at their peak, juiced and immediately spray dried.
BarleyLife is the only product I believe is processed like this.
Barley juice has been studied and researched for over 30 years and after looking at it for the past 14 years; I am now convinced that it can benefit a wide array of people.
Initially produced by Dr. Hagiwara, a pharmacist, who established one of the largest drug manufacturing companies in Japan in the 1950’s and 60’s. He became ill from mercury poisoning from years of continual exposure to the metal in his laboratory. Due to ill health he was forced to give up his company and spent the next few years studying the properties of plant foods, especially green plant foods. His research proved to him that sprouted barley leaves were the most beneficial green food to humans. This cured him of mercury poisoning.
Here are some of the substances isolated in the juice of the barley leaves:
1983 a protein was isolated that has very strong anti-inflammatory qualities. This would explain why countless reports and letters I have read mention the great improvement in arthritis, gout and fibromyalgia.
1985 another substance was reported that reduced hypercholesterolemia or unhealthy cholesterol levels. This research indicated that cholesterol would be reduced by up to 50%. Barley grass juice does appear to benefit people suffering from the problem of unhealthy cholesterol levels.
Other substances where found at the same time that resulted in a strong anti-ulcer effect, in particular stress driven stomach ulcers.
Anti-oxidants such as beta carotene, vitamin C and another isolated at the University of California in 1991, 2’-0-Glycosylisovitexin, are found in extremely high, but safe levels and these together with an enzyme called peroxides have been shown to be anti- carcinogenic and anti-mutagenic.
Peroxides actually breaks down and neutralizes Try-P1 and P2 a carcinogen in grilled meat and fish and 3-4benzypyrene, another carcinogen in tobacco. Therefore people who smoke or eat cooked animal products would reduce their risk of cancer. In fact anyone with cancer or trying to avoid it would do well on barley grass juice.I only use Aim’s BarleyLife, as it has consistently showed the best results with the highest nutritional levels.
SOD or Superoxide Dismutase has been isolated, which is an extremely powerful ‘anti-aging’ antioxidant. It converts a harmful substance called Superoxide, into water and oxygen, which is completely harmless.
