Organic Barley Grass Powder
Our organic barley grass powder is perfect for adding to baked goods, shakes and all your summer drinks. Barley grass, sometimes called barley greens, comes from young barley plants that haven't started making seeds. During this stage of the plant's life, it's full of nutrients that help it grow larger leaves and seeds. You can take advantage of those barley grass benefits by eating the grass while it's young.
Barley grass offers a variety of health benefits because of the minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants it contains. For example, it has a lot of magnesium, which is the fourth-most-common mineral in your body. Magnesium is a key part of more than three hundred enzyme reactions, making it essential to your health. Magnesium is particularly important for energy production and glucose control. It is also rich in vitamins A and C, which act as antioxidants. These vitamins help fight off free radicals that can damage your body. They help carry free radicals out of the body and lower your risk of problems ranging from decreased skin elasticity to breast and colon cancer.
