Did you ever think that eating grass would be good for your health? No? Well, you need to know about barley grass. Barley is mostly famous for barley grain which is used as a staple food and a main ingredient in beer. Barley grass, however, are the young leaves of the barley plants. They are harvested before the plant begins to produce grain and before the stem develops, which is the stage at which they are most nutritious. Rich in vitamins, minerals, fibre, trace elements and chlorophyll, barley grass is considered one of nature's most powerful superfoods. Synergy Organic Barley Grass Powder is barley grass which has been dried and made into a powder that can be used as a health drink.
Barley grass isn't called a superfood for nothing. It contains abundant nutritional and antioxidant properties that greatly improve your health.
Synergy Barley Grass Powder has an insanely high level of insoluble dietary fibre. On a weight for weight basis, it contains 200% the fibre found in bran. High levels of fibre in the diet help the body to maintain healthy blood sugar levels and makes it easier to effectively use insulin.
The fiber in barley grass also makes it great for a weight loss program. Fibre takes a long time to digest, keeping you fuller for longer and effectively reducing how much you eat. This makes it easier to lose weight as you feel hungry less often.
Barley grass contains high levels of tryptophan, gamma-amino-butyric acid (GAB) and saponarin, which play a major role in decreasing blood pressure, reducing inflammation and improving heart health.
Barley grass also promotes the oxidation (burning up) of LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol), which, if left to accumulate, can cause heart disease.
Synergy Barley Grass Powder is rich in immune-boosting nutrients such as:
Sometimes our diet consists of too many acidic foods which lead to a number of negative health effects. Having too much acid in the body pulls alkalizing minerals like calcium, potassium and magnesium out of the bones and teeth leading to disorders such as osteoporosis, and chronic acidosis, which can interfere with regular cellular functions.
Barley grass powder is one of the strongest alkalizing products in nature. It contains high amounts of alkaline minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, and manganese. It restores the proper acid-alkali balance in the body and protects against problems resulting from too much acid in the body.
Not all bacteria are harmful. We need good bacteria in our gut to help protect the body from infections and help in digestion and bowel movements. Ulcerative colitis is an inflammatory health condition resulting from low levels of good bacteria and having too many toxins in the gut.
Synergy Barley Grass Powder helps increase the levels of good bacteria in the bowels, and also reduces the amounts of toxic inflammatory chemicals that cause ulcerative colitis.
Indigestion is a major factor in many cases of ill-health. Barley grass improves digestive health by providing organic sodium, which is needed for the production of hydrochloric acid in the lining of the stomach.
Hydrochloric acid is vital for digestion in the stomach, so having low levels of it will lead to indigestion. Synergy Barley Grass Powder also contains plenty of digestive enzymes which are useful in reducing indigestible and harmful materials in food. In addition, it is rich in chlorophyll, which naturally cleanses the body and reduces the negative effects of processed food, leading to increased levels of energy in the body.
Barley grass powder is fabulously rich in chlorophyll, a powerful detoxifier. When ingested, chlorophyll releases oxygen into the body, which binds itself to and draws out the toxins and heavy metals that drain you of energy and lead to poor health.
Chlorophyll also protects the body from cellular damage caused by exposure to too much sunlight and repairs and regenerates damaged cells and tissues. It is so powerful that it is recommended to begin with low amounts to avoid detox symptoms such as headaches and nausea caused by the removal of toxins from the body.
Barley grass from Synergy is grown outdoors in certified organic farms with unpolluted soils free from chemical fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides.
Since the barley is grown in rich fertile soils, as opposed to the more common method of growing in shallow trays, the roots and shoots develop fully, resulting in grass with higher nutritional content. It is carefully harvested and processed to maintain all its nutrients and contains no fillers, colors, additives, and preservatives.
After harvest, the pure organic barley grass is quickly transported to the processing plant, where it is immediately dried slowly in rotary driers at a temperature slightly above body temperature for not less than 22 hours.
The dried leaves are then milled in a vacuum into a fine consistent powder which can easily dissolve in liquids. Since friction and heat are not used at any stage of the process, the nutritional integrity of the barley grass is preserved in the final product. Unlike other barley grass powders,
Synergy Barley grass Powder has no gluten, fillers, and binders.
Pure organic barley grass is hard to come by, but that needn't worry you, as Synergy has done all the dirty work of growing and processing it for you. Synergy Barley grass powder is a more accessible and longer-lasting form of barley grass, and it can be taken simply dissolved in water or mixed into other foods and drinks.
Anyone can use it without any reservations. It's a superfood that ticks all the boxes: detox, immune-boosting, energy-boosting, and better digestion, and you can't afford to ignore it!
