health benefits of barley grass*

Powerful antioxidant-> Barley grass is an antioxidant powerhouse rich in vitamin A (As beta carotene) and vitamin C. Antioxidants can help protect our cells against free radicals that can damage our body. Barley grass is also a rich source of chlorophyll which also has antioxidant properties.

Digestive health-> We know that digestive health is the key to optimal health. Barley grass is a good source of dietary fiber. The insoluble fiber feeds our good bacteria in our gut helping to keep our intestines healthy and the soluble fiber helps our stomach absorb sugar slower, which can help keep blood sugar and cholesterol levels lower. 

Balances blood sugar levels-> Research shows that barley grass can help balance blood sugar levels, which is likely due to the insoluble fiber it contains, by improving insulin sensitivity. 

Boost immunity-> Barley grass contains polysaccharide structures that may enhance immunity by stimulating the activity of immune cells called macrophages. It also contains Vitamin C which can help improve our body's resistance to disease and infection. 

Calm the nervous system-> Barley grass contains the compounds GABA and glutamic acid. These may have a calming and soothing effect on the central nervous system, making it a beneficial food for aiding anxiety, relaxation, and sleep. 

Bone health-> With 11 times more calcium than milk, barley grass is a good source of calcium. Calcium is one of the main building blocks of our bones, and consuming a good source of calcium in your diet is vital for bone health. It is also a source of manganese and phosphorus which are also important for bone production.
