About Barley Grass Powder

Barley grass is a natural nutritional powerhouse, offering a broad range of nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes and other phytochemicals (plant-chemicals). This powdered plant supplement is a source of magnesium, manganese, folate, vitamin C, potassium and zinc and has been harvested for over 6,000 years, making it an age-old remedy. In addition, barley grass powder contains chlorophyll and superoxide dismutase (SOD). Chlorophyll supports detoxification and even assists in neutralising bad breath. SOD is an intracellular antioxidant that is naturally synthesized in our bodies. It protects from injury due to free-radicals. In fact, it is one of the most powerful natural antioxidants that we produce. In order for SOD to function properly, it needs copper, zinc and manganese, as reported in Medical Science Monitor in 2002

Barley grass also has the added benefit of being high on the pH scale, which means it is an alkaline food. As most people tend to overconsume acidic foods, such as coffee, red meats and white-flour based products, barley grass helps to raise the pH of the body. pH actually stands for power of hydrogen, and is a measure of the hydrogen concentration of a substance, whether it be a food or industrial chemical. As we age the buffering ability of the kidneys tends to decline, which means our ability to regulate blood pH reduces.


It was also reported in Experimental Gerontology in 1986 that the lowered buffering ability of the kidneys with age can contribute to diet-induced metabolic acidosis. Therefore, as we age, more alkaline foods and supplements, like barley grass powder and alfalfa powder, can be useful in order to maintain a balanced pH. A diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables also supports the process of increasing the body’s pH. Green leafy vegetables, caluflower and broccoli are particularly alkalising. Understanding the pH of some of the most commonly consumed foods in your diet is a great idea. 

Barley grass may be taken to support general health, assisting with detoxification and antioxidant status, and supporting alkalinity. This is a product that can be used year round, ideally taken on an empty stomach. However, this product may be incorporated into detoxification programs or weight loss programs, to assist with the removal of toxins released by adipose tissue in increasing amounts during this time.
