Barley Grass Powder – Organic – New Zealand

Our New Zealand, Organic Barley Grass powder is a great addition to your daily smoothies. With a pleasingly tart flavour it’s not as sweet as wheatgrass, but has all of the benefits of concentrated grass goodness.

Like all green plants, barley grass is rich in chlorophyll -the photosynthetic pigment plants use to create energy from sunlight – with over 600mg per 100g. Chlorophyll is reported to have detoxing effects and the ability to remove poisonous toxins from the body, and has also been demonstrated to have antioxidant effects when included in the diet.

Barley grass is also a good source of calcium, which is needed for healthy bones as well as being a vital mineral used in cell signalling and muscle contraction. Being high in both calcium and potassium, barley grass is often referred to as an ‘alkaline food’. Alkaline foods are thought to correct excess acidity in the body which is associated with many degenerative diseases such as arthritis and osteoporosis.

Barleygrass is also a source of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) which had been correlated with longevity and additional studies in 1990 identified a further novel antioxidant within young barleygrass leaves that could help prevent cell damage by free radicals, which can accelerate aging and contribute to the onset of some cancers.
