by Sheryl Walters

(NaturalNews) Organic Green Barley juice powder contains all of the vitamins, minerals and proteins necessary for the human diet. This potent super food has a tremendous ability to deeply absorb nutrients from the soil. It contains:

•A natural balance of beta-carotene, proteins, minerals, amino acids, active enzymes and vitamins E, B1, B2, B3 and B6, and B12 among others.

•seven times more Vitamin C than oranges

•five times more iron than spinach

•Ten times more calcium than milk, and an amazing array of other nutrients essential for vibrant health.

•It is also highly effective at dispersing the vitamins and minerals into the blood stream leaving the body energized

Being a plant makes it easy to absorb unlike other chemically derived supplements.

Protection against the Environment

A rich source of chlorophyll and live enzymes, Barley Grass is known as a powerful antioxidant with tremendous anti-ageing properties. It contains an abundance of phytochemicals that safeguard against radiation, pollution, and other environmental stresses to sustain the body's youthful health.

Prevents Heart Attacks and Strokes

Evidence suggests that barley grass juice may protect against heart disease and strokes. It keeps the blood flowing and prevents blood clots that can cause these often fatal problems. It also has a beneficial effect on cholesterol and blood pressure, both of which are associated with heart disease and strokes.

Healthy Digestion, Healthy Body

Barley Grass juice promotes healthy bowel function. Studies have shown it to be effective against irritable bowel and ulcerative colitis. It boosts the intestinal flora that helps us digest our food, whilst preventing the growth of harmful bacteria and yeast that can impede true health.

This healing juice is a powerful liver, kidney, and digestive tract detoxifier and cleanser. It improves the digestion and the absorption of nutrients so that we feel energetic and well.

PH Balancing for Harmonious Health

Green Barley Grass is highly alkalizing, which helps keep the acidity and alkalinity in our body in check. Modern living and eating is often acidifying, especially when refined and processed foods are consumed. When the acidity-alkalinity equilibrium is disturbed, it leads to mineral imbalances, a weakening of the immune system, and an increase in inflammation. The result can be illness, pain, disease and lowered quality of life.

When the PH is in harmony, our cells can adequately function and we experience wellbeing. Green Barley Grass Juice has long been known as one of the most alkalizing, balancing foods grown on the earth.
"The leaves of Green Barley provide the nearest thing to the perfect food this planet offers" stated Japanese researcher Hagiwara after ten years of research.

Green Barley is known for its multitude of Healing and Nourishing properties:

•Provides every single vitamin, mineral and protein that is essential for a healthy human diet.

•Brings the PH into balance for harmonious wellbeing.
