About Barley Grass Powder

Barley grass is a nutritional powerhouse, containing a broad range of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes and other phytochemicals (plant-chemicals). It is an excellent source of magnesium, manganese, folate, vitamin C, potassium and zinc and has been harvested for over six-thousand years, which certainly precludes it from newcomer status. In addition, it is an excellent source of chlorophyll and superoxide dismutase (SOD).



Chlorophyll is helpful for maintaining general health through supporting detoxification and even assists in neutralising bad breath. SOD is an intracellular antioxidant that is naturally synthesized in our bodies. It supports protection 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 that our ability to regulate blood pH reduces. It was also reported in Experimental Gerontology in 1986 that this can contribute to diet-induced metabolic acidosis. Therefore, as we age, more alkaline foods and supplements will be useful. A diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables will help to support the process of increasing the body’s pH. It is therefore quite useful to have some understanding of the pH of some of the most commonly consumed foods in your diet. 


Barley grass may be taken to support general health, assisting with detoxification and antioxidant status, and supporting alkalinity.
