All About Our Organic Barley Powder

Barley grass is well known for its nutritional properties. It is obtained from young leaves of the barley plant, which have not yet begun to form seeds. That’s because, at this stage of their development, the plants are full of excellent nutrients and beneficial compounds that they use to grow larger leaves and produce seeds.

The leaves are harvested and processed into powdered form. Organic barley grass powder is highly popular at juice bars and can easily be added to solid and liquid foods to boost their nutritional value.

You’ll find many of the vitamins, minerals and amino acids needed for the human body to perform at its best in our organic barley powder. This comprehensive array of nutritional goodness represents all the nutrients humans require in natural proportions, which is why barley grass is considered a whole food concentrate.

What Compounds Are In Barley Grass?

You’d be amazed just how much nutritional value nature packs into barley grass. These tender green plants are veritable libraries of health-boosting power.

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, which are themselves often described as the building blocks of life. Proteins are one of the most essential compounds in the human body. They are necessary for building and regenerating cells and producing the energy needed to sustain life.

Our organic barley grass powder contains eighteen amino acids, including all eight amino acids essential for human life. These include:

  • Alanine
  • Arginine
  • Aspartic acid
  • Glutamic acid
  • Glycine
  • Histidine
  • Isoleucine
  • Leucine
  • Lysine
  • Methionine
  • Phenylalanine
  • Proline
  • Serine
  • Threonine
  • Tyrosine
  • Valine

In addition to their high levels of amino acids, barley grass leaves also contain numerous other beneficial vitamins and minerals. Here are just some of them: 

  • Beta-carotene
  • Folic acid
  • Pantothenic acid
  • Vitamins B1, B2, B6 and C
  • Potassium
  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Iron
  • Copper
  • Phosphorus
  • Manganese
  • Zinc

The Many Benefits of Barley Grass

The essential nutrients present in this whole food act synergistically together, which means they operate powerfully in concert to boost one anothers’ effects and optimise your body’s functions.

Barley grass has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which help support the immune system and protect your body from the harmful effects of free radicals. Free radicals have been linked to everything from skin aging to even certain types of cancers.

Our barley grass powder is also rich in fibre, which offers a range of benefits for the human body. For example, dietary fibre helps improve digestion by supporting ‘good’ gut bacteria and regulating blood sugar levels. It can even help flush out cholesterol before it enters your bloodstream, lowering blood cholesterol levels and thus reducing your risk of heart disease and stroke.

The calcium present in barley grass is necessary for building strong bones and improving dental health. Because barley grass is also rich in phosphorus, it is excellent for helping to ensure your teeth are strong and healthy.

At Lovely Health, the organic barley grass powders we supply are entirely made from young barley shoots grown in the fertile soils of New Zealand. That means they do not contain any pesticides or herbicides – just nature’s green goodness.

All About Wheat Grass

In addition to barley grass powder, we also supply organic wheatgrass. As the name suggests, wheatgrass is made of the young, edible leaf of the wheat plant. This surprising superfood is gaining a growing global reputation as a nutritional powerhouse.

All of the organic wheatgrass we sell is grown in the rich, natural surroundings of New Zealand’s untouched Canterbury plains. These plants have benefitted from the goodness of this unpolluted, fertile soil and fresh air.

The young wheat plants are harvested at an early stage when they are still rich in vitamins, minerals and natural compounds. That’s what produces this rich, bright green supplement full of great, organic benefits.

In addition to the many nutrients it shares with barley grass, our wheatgrass powder also contains P4D1. This gluco-protein has antioxidant-like properties, which reduce inflammation, promote healthy digestive function and support your overall health.

As you can see, barley and wheatgrass offer an incredibly diverse array of fantastic benefits for your body.
