Organic Barley Grass Powder 200g
What Is Organic Barley Grass?
Barley grass is made in the same way as wheatgrass, but from the sprouted seed of barley. It also has very similar benefits to wheatgrass- it is extremely alkalizing and high in chlorophyll. Barley Grass contains 11 times more calcium than cows milk, 5 times more iron than spinach and 7 times more Vitamin C and bio-flavonoids than Orange Juice. It also contains significant amounts of vitamin B12, a key nutrient for blood and energy production. Barley Grass Juice has anti-viral activities and neutralizes heavy metals such as mercury in the blood.
Both barley grass and wheatgrass can be grown at home. The seeds are sprouted and grown into a grass, which can then be juiced.
