WHY GBX IS
Green Barley is one of nature’s super foods; it is a concentrated food that restores minerals, vitamins, amino acids and many other nutrients in their organic form to your body.
In his 13 years of research, Dr Hagiwara (author of “Green Barley Essence”), discovered green barley to be one of the riches sources of all the essential nutrients for human nutrition, growth and repair. Many other plants were established as highly nutritious, but none included as broad a spectrum of nutrients as barley grass.
Green barley powder contains a wide spectrum of vitamins, minerals, trace elements, enzymes, essential fatty acids, bioflavonoids, carotenoids and chlorophyll. These important micro-nutrients allow for the maximum utilisation of macro-nutrients (protein, carbohydrate and fat) in the food we eat.
Green Barley is especially rich in chlorophyll, the substance that allows plants to convert light energy to chemical energy, which they then use for growth. It is also the chlorophyll that gives green barley its natural rich green colour. Chlorophyll is similar in structure to the haemoglobin in our blood and it actually helps to build our blood. In addition, chlorophyll improves oxygenation within the body which in turn increases our energy levels. Chlorophyll is also well known as a blood cleanser and has a deodorising effect on the body enhancing its overall antioxidant activity. Green barley is also very rich in the powerful antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD), know for it’s ability to protect and repair cells from free radical damage as we age.
Barley grass is highly alkaline and therefore is beneficial in restoring appropriate pH levels in acidic conditions. Acidity can occur quickly in the body when exposed to a variety of aggravating factors e.g. sleep deprivation, illness, stress, exposure to toxins or chemicals, acidic forming foods and beverages etc.
