Barley Grass (29 products)

Barley grass is amongst the earliest grown sweetgrass in the world and traces its history back to 5000 BC. The high nutritional content of barley grass is found in the young green shoots that form before the grain. The young leaves absorb nutrients from the soil and contain all the vital nutrients necessary for our health. Nutrients from barley grass are easily absorbed and assimilated by the body.


Barley grass certainly earns its title as a superfood due its high nutrient profile.  Loaded with vitamins including beta carotene, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B3, vitamin B6, folate, vitamin C, vitamin E and vitamin K (phylloquinone). Barley grass is also a rich source of chlorophyll, amino acids, fibre, electrolytes and minerals such as magnesium, potassium, phosphorous, zinc, iron, and calcium.


Barley grass is the most potent source of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase which helps neutralize the effects of free radicals produced during energy metabolism. Providing a protective, disease preventing action to the body.


Health benefits of barley grass include relief from ulcerative colitis, cleansing and detoxifying action, immune support and an alkalising effect on the body. Barley grass can reduce stomach acidity and provides easily assimilated nutrients which may be beneficial during times of convalescence, dietary restriction and a source of greens for fussy eaters.


 Barley grass can be consumed as barley grass powder, a juice extracted from young grass sprouts or in the form of a green powder by spray drying the grass.  The barley green powder can be then conveniently taken in the form of barley grass tablets or barley grass capsules.  Powdered barley grass can be added to fruit and vegetable juices and smoothies.
