The nutritional value of barley powder

Barley grass powder is said to have 11 times the calcium content of milk and also 30 times the vitamin B1 content and 6.5 times carotene content. It has more than 4 times the content of iron of spinach, almost 7 times the vitamin C content found in oranges, 4 times the vitamin B1 found in wheat flour.

Barley grass is a rich source of organic sodium. The organic sodium is responsible for dissolving the calcium that is deposited in the joints. It is important to replenish the organic sodium in the stomach’s lining to improve the hydrochloric acid production in the stomach, thus, aiding digestion. Organic sodium is important for arthritic patients and celery juice has been the source of it for years. However, barley grass powder is the best source since it has 775mg of organic sodium per 100 grams compared to celery juice’s 28mg/100 grams.

Barley powder is also a good source of proteins. For instance, barley grass has about 45 percent proteins at its time of harvest. It has twice as much protein as an equivalent amount of wheat germ. It is rich in minerals also, having about 5 times the minerals which are found in animal protein. But unlike animal protein, the barley powder protein does not have fats. Amazingly, the barley powder is also rich in chlorophyll, which is an interesting nutrient. Though it might sound strange, chlorophyll as a nutrient (Oxygenated sunshine in liquid form) is a detoxifier that gets rid of the toxins stored in the intestines.

Barley powder is also rich in enzymes. It is actually believed that the powder has up to 1000 enzymes. As we all know, enzymes are regulators necessary in the body and body cells cannot function without them. Barley powder has high natural levels of SOD (superoxide dismutase) enzyme. This enzyme is an anti-oxidant that fights free radicals in the body.
