BENEFITS OF SUPPLEMENTING BARLEY GRASS
• Supports Digestive Health
Barley Grass is a natural source of organic sodium which is needed by the stomach’s lining to produce hydrochloric acid, which is needed to help digest our food.
Barley Grass is also rich in digestive enzymes which help to reduce toxic materials in the foods we eat.
Barley Grass protects the body from radiation and cellular damage, and even helps regenerate damaged cells and tissues. Due to the fact that Barley Grass is a free radical scavenger it can also help reduce pain and inflammation.
• Immune boosting properties
Barley Grass is rich in vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and enzymes. It is especially high on Vitamin C which helps the body fight infections.
• Alkalinises the body
An unbalanced diet can easily cause the body to become overly acidic which leads to a reduction in the absorption of important nutrients. Trigger foods include eating red meat in excess, all types of sugar, alcohol and caffeine. An acidic blood pH can lead to fatigue, insomnia, restlessness and even constipation.
Barley Grass helps the body maintain an alkaline pH by neutralising these acids. The reason for this is that Barley Grass is high in Potassium, Calcium and Magnesium which are all alkalinising minerals.

Barley Grass is a natural appetite suppressant as it promotes a feeling of fullness which consequently leads to gradual weight-loss
