WHY GBX IS

Better

Green Barley is made from the young green leaves of organically grown barley grass cultivated in rich fertile soil.  It is harvested when the young shoots are at their nutrient peak; the time when the plant concentrates its nutrients to support new growth.

Within 1 hour of harvesting, the young shoots go through a unique drying process at very low temperature that is designed to preserve maximum levels of enzymes, vitamins, amino acids and other key nutrients.  This drying process occurs over a 24 hour period while many other barley grass products are dried within a matter of hours.

It is then ground, without employing heat or friction, by an exclusive powdering method that produces micro-fine powder, allowing all its nutrients to be more available to the body.  This ensures that the green barley is very easily dissolved in cold beverages.

The entire process of growing, harvesting, processing, and packaging takes place all in the same location minimising loss of nutrients due to travel time and exposure to the elements.

100% green barley – no additives, preservatives, or fillers.  Unlike other products which are made from the dried juice extract and have had brown rice added for fibre, GBX Green Barley in made from the whole barley grass and contains all the fibre naturally present at the time of harvesting.

GBX Green Barley does not need maltodextrin to be added for stability, however, maltodextrin can be found added in barley grass juice extracted products to prevent oxidation of important nutrients.

GBX Green Barley is Organically Certified by NASAA (The National Association for Sustainable Agriculture, Australia) and JAS (Japanese Agricultural Standard).

GENERAL

Benefits

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.
