Product Description

Barley Grass Powder

Also Known As - farmer's foxtail, hare barley, foxtail barley, leporinum barley, mouse barley, and barley grass

Organically Grown - USA 

Overview - Hordeum leporinum is indigenous to the Mediterranean region. The species is a forage plant in the southern USSR, Argentina, and in portions of Australia. It is thought to have been introduced to North and South America, and to Australia, by the early nineteenth century. In North America, wild barley can be found from Maine and British Columbia to northern Mexico; it is absent in most Midwestern states.

Medicinal Uses - First, barley grass provides a significant amount of fiber, including a water-soluble form known as beta-glucan. 

One of the greatest nutritional benefits of supplementing with barley grass is the fact that its nutrients are more bio-available than other sources. For example, nutrients from many other sources must first undergo an enzyme conversion before they can be absorbed. In contrast, barley grass provides several enzymes and 18 amino acids, making this conversion unnecessary and nutrient absorption maximized.

Barley grass is also an excellent source of protein. In fact, the fresh juice contains up to 45% protein. However, being a non-animal source of protein, it is low in fat. Barley grass is also rich in iron, folic acid, beta-carotene, and vitamins E, B1, B2, B3, B6, and B12. If that’s not impressive enough, then consider this: Barley contains 11 times more calcium and 30 times more vitamin B1 than cow’s milk, 5 times more iron than spinach, and about 7 times more vitamin C than an orange.

Barley is used for lowering blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol, and for promoting weight loss. It is also used for digestive complaints including diarrheastomach pain, and inflammatory bowel conditions.

Some people use barley for increasing strength and endurance. Other uses include cancer prevention and treatment of a lung problem called bronchitis.

Barley is applied to the skin for treating boils.

In foods, barley is used as a source of vitamins, carbohydrates, proteins, and fatty oils.
 

Parts Used - Cut just above the soil when the young leaf blades are 6 -14 inches, and dried, then ground into a powder.

Powdered barley grass is high in Vitamin C, iron and minerals. Add it to smoothies, shakes, yogurt, soups and stews.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Barley is LIKELY SAFE when taken by mouth during pregnancy in amounts commonly found in foods. However, barley sprouts are POSSIBLY UNSAFE and should not be eaten in high amounts during pregnancy.

There is not enough reliable information about the safety of taking barley if you are breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Celiac disease or gluten sensitivity: The gluten in barley can make celiac disease worse. Avoid using barley.

Allergies to cereal grains: Consuming barley might cause an allergic reaction in people who are sensitive to other cereal grains, including rye, wheat, oat, corn and rice. 

Diabetes: Barley might lower blood sugar levels. Your diabetes medications might need to be adjusted by your healthcare provider.

Surgery: Barley might lower blood sugar levels. There is a concern that it might interfere with blood sugar control during and after surgery. Stop using barley at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.
