Barley grass is simply the young shoots of sprouted barley grain (Hordeum vulgare). It is a nutritious grass that has a nutrient profile that has more similarity to vegetables than to the adult barley grain plant. It is also a fantastic source of essential protein that can help to supplement the diet of vegetarians and vegans alike. Natural health practitioners often recommend barley grass for a variety of conditions, including: ulcerative colitis, anemia, malnutrition, malabsorption, detoxification, and cardiovascular disease.
Vitamin and Mineral Content This sprout contains iron, vitamin C, vitamin B12, vitamin B6, vitamin K and folic acid. It also contains particularly high levels of vitamin B1 (thiamine) and calcium. It is said to have 30 times more vitamin B1 and 11 times more calcium that there is in cow's milk and well as about 7 times the amount of vitamin C in oranges. For years people with arthritis have used celery juice simply because of the amount of organic sodium it contains - 28mg/100g, however barley grass contains 775mg/100g of organic sodium. The enzyme content of barley grass significantly boosts its antioxidant potential, particularly its levels of superoxide dismutase (SOD).
Barley grass is approximately 45% protein. It is a source of complete protein because it contains all of the essential amino acids. It is actually superior to typical plant protein sources, such as legumes and because of this, it is a great addition to any vegetarian diet. Also, these proportionately high levels of protein can actually help to stabilize blood sugar when spirulina is supplemented between meals. This can help to reduce sugar fluctuations in diabetics and those with hypoglycemia.
Barley grass is a rich source of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is a potent detoxifier that can help to speed the release of toxins from the blood stream by binding them in the intestines. Chlorophyll can also help to increase the oxygenation of tissues by nourishing red blood cells. Interestingly, it has also been shown to do the work of hemoglobin in the blood, which is thought to be due to it resembling the human hemoglobin (oxygen-carrying) molecule.
Barley Grass is important for boosting the immune defences. It provides essential nutrients for balancing the optimal production of immune cells in the body. Have a strong immune system helps to fight off infections both viral and bacterial and helps to prevent the development of diseases.
Barley grass also has anti-inflammatory properties and heals the intestinal lining. It is used for disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, pancreatitis, and during recovery from illness. It is particularly helpful in the treatment of ulcerative colitis.
